Google Launches Webmaster Site
Google on Friday rolled out a new service designed to enable the company to better interact with webmasters around the world. The site offers a variety of tools related to the company's search engine, including a status wizard to see if Google is properly indexing a specific URL.
Webmaster Central will also feature a blog to keep users informed about how Google crawls the Web, an expanded Webmaster Help Google Group, and a number of FAQs. As part of the Webmaster tools service, formerly called Google Sitemaps, users can add a Web site to their Google account and make changes to how it is indexed.
