Google Creates One Page for Webmaster Tools Settings

Google has placed the Webmaster Tools settings on one page for your convenience. The settings that can be adjusted are:

1. Geographic Target
2. Preferred domain control
3. Opting in to enhanced image search
4. Crawl rate control

Some settings are time-bound, such as the crawl rate, which automatically sets back to default after 90 days. So, be sure to make note of those settings and revisit as warranted.

You'll also be prompted every time you make a change to Save or Cancel.

Have you checked out the new settings page? What are your thoughts?
