Google Webmaster ToolsDo you find the reports within Google Webmaster Tools to be accurate?

We ran a poll asking just that question a few months ago. We asked Do You Find Google Webmaster Tools To Be Accurate?

Only about 5% felt the reports were "extremely accurate" while 12% said the reports were "completely wrong"! Of course, like with most things, it is not black and white. 56% said it is "not so accurate" and when you add it with the 12%, you get 68% feeling the results are not all that accurate or completely not accurate.

Again, they may be accurate and this is all just perception. If so, only 25% say it is "accurate enough" and the 5% said it is very accurate, so 30% are confident in the reports within Google Webmaster Tools.

Why is there a lack of confidence in these reports?
