Google Tools for Webmasters

Google has a great service for webmasters: Google Webmaster Tools

Today, a website is not visible to the world if it's not visible to Google. And a small pagerank is not enough for a publishing website to survive.

In the old days a webmaster had to submit her site's URL to search engines and wait for it to be indexed. Now that there is only one dominant search engine in the market (Google) it is sufficient for a website to be seen on google search results.

Other than submitting URLs of your site to Google, you can see a lot of information about your site by using this tool. Google gives results of crawling your site. Those results include: broken links, HTTP errors, unfollowed URLs and information about your robots.txt file.

Another important feature is that Google sends warning messages through this tool, before giving pagerank penalty or when it detects your site is hacked. or even before your site is hacked.
