Google Search Console, Farewell Webmasters Tools
Google’s Webmasters Tools has been providing webmasters with useful features to help them make their websites more findable and useful for almost ten years.
But Google wants to rebrand and rename Webmasters Tools: Introducing the new Search Console!
Since change is always a good thing, well, most of the time, Google’s reason behind the rebranding is that webmasters aren’t the only people who use the app. Inclusion is the keyword! As Google has stated, “the traditional idea of ‘webmaster’ reflects only some of you.” There are all kinds of webmaster out there from hobbyists, small business owners, SEO experts, marketers, programmers, designers, app developers, and, of course, webmasters as well.
The one thing they all have in common, apart from using Webmasters Tools of course, is the desire to make all their work available online.
Google posted this update on their Webmaster Central Blog on Wednesday 20th of May. They’ll also be rebranding the new Search Console over the coming weeks. Make sure to bookmark it for future developments on all things Google!
