Before there was Google Search Console there was Google Webmaster Tools, before there was Google Webmaster Tools there was Google Sitemaps. To tell you that story, John Mueller and Lizzi Sassman interviewed the original creator of this tool, Vanessa Fox.

Vanessa left Google in 2007 for a short stint at Zillow and then doing some pretty amazing things at other companies, only to come back to SEO to do some consulting, speaking and building out an impressive SEO toolset.

In any event, here is that interview:

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Note: This was pre-written and scheduled to be posted today, I am currently offline for Rosh Hashanah.
