Google’s Webmasters Tools Refining Websites and User Experience
As a website owner, what can be more valuable than updated and current knowledge of how your website is working, and how it is being viewed by the general user? If you are getting this information from a trusted source, its importance immediately multiplies.
For this very reason, webmasters pay huge importance to Google’s Webmaster Tools because it is a real life presentation of your website’s true performance. If you use these tools effectively, you can not only be aware of your site’s performance level, but can also take steps into making sure that performance is improved and user experience has been made better.
There are a lot of tools that webmasters use to determine their website’s true workings. Randomly selected first is, submitting your website’s sitemap to Google. Submitting your sitemap to Google can identify any errors before Google can start to crawl it. This feature provides you an opportunity to rectify any errors that might hinder crawling and indexing by Google. Also, this feature informs you on correct number of pages that are not yet indexed by Google, so you can know where to focus your energies on.
A new updated on these tools allows webmasters to become fully aware of not only the number but also the location of broken links that are directing to their websites. Link building takes a lot of time, and sometimes money too, to start working properly. Broken links only add to the damage being done to your website’s rankings on search results. Becoming aware of the broken links statistics regarding your website can help you save a lot of time and money, which you can then spend on repairing your links.
There might be some pages on your website that you do not think should be indexed by Google. With Google’s new parameter handling, you can now easily ensure which pages you want to be indexed and which you’d rather Google ignore them. By simply introducing the “wp-“prefix before a page’s URL gives you control over not letting it indexed by Google. This Webmaster Tool gives you more say on how Google crawls and indexes your website.
All these Webmasters Tools can be of great help to a website’s search engine success, if used efficiently. With these tools, you not only gain the ability to keep a check on your website’s performance through a trusted source, but can also take steps to ensure improved user experience as well as enhanced website performance.
