Google Updates Webmaster Tools

Google’s Webmaster Tools has received an update. Google is calling it the “Summer Shine” update. Here are some of the changes you can expect:

  • Site selector lists all of your verified sites and allows you to search for the sites while you type.
  • Blocking non-homepage sitelinks is enabled. Previously you couldn’t block sub-directory sitelinks.
  • View URL removal requests submitted by others for any of your sites. You also have the ability to revoke them if necessary.
  • Webmaster Tools homepage is easier to navigate. There’s a distinction between verified and unverified sites.

What do you think of these updates? Let us know by leaving a comment.
