Google Search Console (GWT), Good Unique Content Should Die, More Sales From Mobile, #Speedlink 21:2015

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great and productive week! Recently, Google has announced that Google Webmaster Tools has been replaced by Google Search Console. From what I can gather, only the “rebranding” of the tools took place and no other new features was released (correct me if I am wrong). Nonetheless, if you no longer here about the former Google Webamster Tools, now you know why.

Google Search Console

An excerpt from the offcial blog post mentioned:

For nearly ten years, Google Webmaster Tools has provided users with constantly evolving tools and metrics to help make fantastic websites that our systems love showing in Google Search. In the past year, we sought to learn more about you, the loyal users of Google Webmaster Tools: we wanted to understand your role and goals in order to make our product more useful to you.

It turns out that the traditional idea of the “webmaster” reflects only some of you. We have all kinds of Webmaster Tools fans: hobbyists, small business owners, SEO experts, marketers, programmers, designers, app developers, and, of course, webmasters as well. What you all share is a desire to make your work available online, and to make it findable through Google Search. So, to make sure that our product includes everyone who cares about Search, we’ve decided to rebrand Google Webmaster Tools as Google Search Console.
