Google Revamps Webmaster Home

The picture above is an animated GIF of the new Google home page for webmasters at

Google made the webmaster portal really pretty and fun to walk through. They also added three new tools. Personally, I always bypass this page and go directly into the Google Search Console, but now I might stop by for a visit.

Much is really the same but now more organized including quick support links, online educational content and how to find Googlers to talk to.

The three new things Google added includes:

  • Webmaster troubleshooter: Need a step-by-step guide to move your site or understand a message in Search Console? The troubleshooter can help answer these and other common problems with your site in Google Search and Google Search Console.
  • Popular resources: Looking for popular Google Webmasters YouTube videos, blog posts and forum threads? Here’s a curated list of our top resources – these may differ across languages.
  • Events calendar: Want to meet someone from our team online for office hours or at a live event near you? We have office hours and events in multiple languages around the world. 

So far, it seems webmasters and SEOs are discovering more content here than ever. I am seeing so many folks report old help documents as being new because they are finding it for the first time. So good work Google!
