Google Announces Minor Updates To Webmaster Tools

The next time you login to Google’s Webmaster Tools, you may notice a few minor changes to the interface and functionality. Google announced four changes today — two of which seem worth highlighting here:

  • Blocking non-home page sitelinks: The ability to block certain sitelinks from showing in Google results now applies to all pages on your site that have sitelinks, not just the home page.
  • Viewing URL removal requests made by others: On the “Crawler Access” page, you can see any URL removal requests that other people have made about URLs you own — and you can revoke them, too.

The other changes include a more clear listing of verified and non-verified sites, and a site selector drop down for quicker access to all your sites.
