New Keywords User Interface for Google Webmaster Tools


In a special post-Halloween, the Google Webmaster Central Blog announced a change to the keywords section of Google Webmaster Tools.

The major changes are:

  1. The data is now updated daily
  2. Google now displays how many occurrences of the keyword through the site
  3. Google displays a number of URL’s through the site that contains the specific keyword
  4. A frequency column which displays the prominence of a keyword compared to other keywords on the site

These features are useful in identifying URL’s that might have been hacked. Another good use for these new interface features is checking Google in indexing all your pages, especially after a major change in hosting or web language. Essentially this new interface helps you visualise more easily how Google views your site.
