While checking my Google Webmasters account today I noticed some new options and statistics. The first one is the sitemap inclusion statistics.

While seeing the Sitemaps overview, I noticed the actual number of links in Google’s index. This is a nice addition.

Another addition to the Tools is the Content Analysis page.

The Content Analysis page shows you potential issues Google found when crawling and indexing your site. We recommend that you review this report regularly to identify changes that potentially increase your rankings in Google search results pages while providing a better experience for your readers.

These issues don’t prevent your site from being crawled or indexed, but paying attention to them can improve the user experience and even help drive traffic to your site. For example, title and meta description text can appear in search results pages, and useful, descriptive text is more likely to be clicked on by users.

Data that may be included on this page includes:

  • Title problems: Potential problems with the title tag on your pages, such as missing or repeated page titles.
  • Meta description problems: Potential problems with missing, duplicate, or otherwise problematic meta descriptions.
  • Non-indexable content: Pages containing non-indexable content, such as Flash files, video, or images.

Again a nice addition for SEO. Mine was saying “We didn’t detect any content issues with your site.

  1. Useful info for the webmasters and Google seems to be aware of the competition from Yahoo and MSN

  2. Is there any one who you know having the “non-indexable content” issue in their webmaster-tool login? If so, please post that screen-shot, I just want to look what kind of report they generate and what suggestion does Google gives.
