Google Launches ‘Fetch as Googlebot’ and ‘Malware Details’ in Webmaster Tools Labs

Google is releasing into Webmaster Tools Labs a couple of features that help you view things from their angle. The two features are “Fetch as Googlebot” and “Malware Details.”

Fetch as Googlebot lets you view your web pages as Google’s famous indexing spider. This will answer a question Google (and SEOs) gets asked ALL. THE. TIME.

Malware details show you code snippets on your website that Google has determined are malicious. The goal is to help streamline the often tedious process of ridding your site of malware.

Google has released these features into Labs because they want feedback from users before they release it as official features in Webmaster Tools.

What do you think of these new Webmaster Tools Labs features? Let us know by leaving a comment.
