A new addition to Google Webmaster Tools now lets site administrators know when sudden changes occur in impressions and clicks for top pages. The search query alert notifies the webmaster when search results clicks change dramatically and recommends next steps to identify and resolve potential issues.
If the problem isn’t immediately apparent, Google recommends visiting the Help forums for assistance. Webmasters will need to have email forwarding turned on to get these new notifications by email.
What do you think of all of the recent changes in Google Webmaster Tools, are they making your job easier? Let us know in the comments!
