Google Webmaster Tools Improving

One comes across another fresh development in the Google Search Console account today.

This priceless resource helps websites in gathering valuable insights and monitor their performance on the internet.

Click the text – Search Traffic (placed inside the left sidebar) and then – Links To Your Site.

You would notice a message marked as “Important” within a brick color horizontal bar at the top.

However this message would appear only for websites which are using the old version of the Google Webmaster Tools Account.

Have a look at the image screenshot below :

Report On Links To Websites As Shown In The Old Version

Notice the red rounded square – indicating the important message now being displayed.

Note : Blue vertical bars added to conceal information such as :

  • The total number of incoming connections from other sources.
  • Names of Linking websites !

One discovers that the previously designed panel would show only :

  • Who Links The Most i.e. the domains connecting to your web site.
  • Your Most Linked Content – Signifying a list of number of inward connections, your different pages or blogs or website has received.

Having said that, scrolling down a bit further, one finds another list for – How Your Data Is Linked, which would lead you to another page.

Now observe the photo screenshot below :

Google Search Console Showing More Data For Websites

Now you can view analytical statements and link details through a much more comprehensive report, helping in tracking trends on online traffic !

The heading – Who Links The Most, as per first image has been changed to – Top Linking Sites.

So far no change.

But on a second glance, one finds that the headline – Your Most Linked Content, has been broken down within two separate headers marked as External and Internal Links.

The former indicates the list of inbound connections your various web pages or in-house blog posts have received so far, from outside sources.

The latter signifies a list of web pages or articles having been internally connected by you, yourself.

So this is where one notices a major enhancement at this modernized resource, now showing more data for websites.

Websites from now on will be able to better evaluate the signals behind their position on natural listing results, online.

Finally, you would observe the same kind of message, marked as “Important” within several other pages of your Google Search Console, if you click the following :

  • Appearance : Sub-categories either Rich Cards or Accelerated Mobile Pages.
  • Traffic : Sub-categories either Analytics, Internal Links, Manual Actions or Mobile Usability.
  • Google Index : Sub-category – Index Status.
  • Crawl : Sub-category – Crawl Errors.

Reaching the new panel from any of the above four options is displaying more analytic insights for websites, as compared to the previous model.

So, go ahead and use this wonderful resource to undertake superior research and form fitter strategies for boosting your position on the internet.
