Matt Cutts Calls For Webmaster Central Features Ideas

I don't know if it is the popularity of Matt Cutts (undeniable if you have every watched the comet trail he has behind him at any search event) or a true desire to input ideas for Google's next Webmaster Central feature, but Matt has received over a thousand responses in under 24 hours and the news has not even been fully disseminated yet.

Matt added a poll to his call for feature suggestions and as of this blog entry there were over 1200 votes and 107 comments.

The poll options are:
* More information about penalties or other scoring issues

* Tools for detecting or reporting duplicate content

* Show links on your site that are broken

* Score the crawlability or accessibility of pages

* Show PageRank numbers instead of none/low/medium/high

* Tell Google the correct country or language for a site

* Tool to help move from one domain to a new domain

* Diagnostic wizard for common site problems

* Some type of rank checking

* A way to list supplemental result pages

* Show causes of 404 errors

* Option to "disavow" backlinks from or to a site

* Fetch a page as Googlebot to verify correct behavior

* Tell Google a parameter doesn't matter

* Show pages that don't validate

* Ability to show/download all pages from a site (e.g. if your server crashed)

* More documentation and examples

* Integrate "Add URL" feature

This is an interesting blog entry and many of the comments are well worth reading.
