Google add "Manual Actions" to webmaster tools

3 comments

Google have just added “manual actions” to the navigation in webmaster tools.

I can’t tell yet what it will show other than warning and maybe the awaited examples of problems e.g. bad link examples or problematic pages/structure

It really looks like google is opening up a lot more to webmaster which I think is great news.

Bugs?

Sounds like Google isn't that well ready to go more transparent with their link records...

weird indeed

Apparently the have taken it down, citing bugs ... http://searchengineland.com/google-says-snag-has-taken-manual-spam-actions-viewer-offline-169396 . They're saying that it is going to be back up in a couple days but I guess lets see. This would not be the first time that google giveth and taketh away features from GWMT...

Barry Schwartz reports that the bugs are apparently worked out and its up now: http://www.seroundtable.com/google-manual-actions-return-17209.html
