Google Speaks Through Messages

Written on July 31, 2007 – 1:41 pm | by bigoak |

Looking at my Google Webmaster Tools Dashboard today I saw something I hadn’t noticed before. Probably been there for a while since I’m so focused on the Site info, but anyway there is was: Message Center. I had no messages but I clicked the [?] and the following text was revealed as an explanation:

What is the message center?

The message center provides a way for us to communicate important information to you regarding your Google webmaster tools account and the sites you manage. Our intent is to make it easy for you to receive important information associated with your sites.

To view your messages, sign in to your Google webmaster tools account, and then click the link under Message Center.

So maybe Google is tearing the veil, so to speak, and will begin communicating with Webmasters. We can only hope. Has anyone recieve a message from Google yet? Let us know.

Matt Cutts, Google Engineer, also talks about Google Webmaster Tools in a video, if you don’t know what this post is about. A good explanation is given by Matt Cutts.

    No Google, hasn’t left me any messages yet. Nor have they taken the time to reveal any secrets to me via their message center. I had a spam issue with my affordable web hosting directory but Matt Cutts wasn’t very responsive. Even though I had replied to an exact walk though he posted about reporting “made for adsense” sites.

    If nothing else maybe they’ll at least take our complaints. :P
