A User’s Guide : Google WebMaster Tools

Posted on November 27, 2010


Google WebMaster Tools helps you understand how Google crawls, indexes and ranks your site by allowing you to:

See how many people found your site in search results, and how many people clicked on it
Receive alerts in your inbox. We’ll tell you if we detect that your site has malware or generates errors
Check who links to you. We track links from all over the web, and we’ll show you who added a link to your site
Tell Google about your site. Submit Sitemaps and see how many pages we added to the index

Useful Resources.
