Google Sitemaps / Google Webmaster Central Adds A Blog

By Li Evans

If you haven’t heard by now, Google has officially changed over Google Sitemaps to be Google Webmaster Central. The changed name now reflects the fact that this tool has grown to expand beyond just giving Google your sitemap file for their spiders to crawl. According to Google’s Vanessa Fox, “we've added and improved lots of geeky goodies to help give you more info and control. 

Along with adding extra features to Webmaster Central, including a way to report spam, the Webmaster Central team has also added a few more ways to communicate with website owners about Google’s latest additions, issues, experiences or questions that they’ve been receiving.

Google’s Webmaster Central is a free tool, and an invaluable one, as Google is the only major search engine providing such a resource to Webmasters / SEO Professionals. Another nice thing about the tool, is that if you have the site configured right for Google, and using the Webmaster Central, it’s a good bet that your site is crawlable by the other major search engines.
