Google URL ParametersThere is a bug in Google Webmaster Tools right now where you cannot add, edit or delete URL parameters within the interface.

The issue started Thursday, January 24th and was reported in two different Google Webmaster Help threads.

When you access the interface to manage your URL parameters in Webmaster Tools, the buttons to edit or delete or even add parameters is simply not there.

Google's John Mueller is aware of the issue and he said he has reported it to the appropriate team. John wrote:

Thanks for posting. It looks like the buttons have gone missing for you there, sorry! I'll check with the Webmaster Tools team to see what we can do about that.

There is no ETA for a fix.

Noticed that... they have a lot of problems. For one... we are all in the year 2013 and not in 2001. The web changed in the past few years. But google did not adopt. It’s a shame that webmasters must build sitemaps and tweak their sites to get indexed in 2013. There are no excuses.... “Help us know.... what your page is all about... This is bull shit” Sorry for my language... The google search did not develop because the google has no serious competitors. They developed thrones of services ….. which are great... but forgot about the core of their business... Search... And they make tons of mistakes... all the time... If they can not determine duplicated content... If some sites with technologies from the 90’s have better page ranks than pages in HTML5.... if google does not consider the quality also by technology.... ectr... Google has serious problems with it’s search development. It’s becoming somehow.... controlled. I am even convinced there is a human factor as a part of the page “PR”. If you are too big... if you grow... there is going to be a human factor as a part of your PR. The web is becoming somehow controlled. The success … of an individual or a group … depends on money … venture... not just for one reason... everything is connected...

Well, I do hope that this gets to sort out as early as possible, else there could be some serious hiccups in the webmasters mind and might benefit some negative seekers also.

I'm getting worried this will never get fixed and i'm afraid to login to my webmaster tools account to find more things not working. I'm trying to rebuild my blog and using stat's to find out what I need to fix or work on and Google taking there time fixing bug's.
