"Common words in your site's content" - in Webmaster Tools
Anyone else not seen this?

 9:08 pm on Dec 22, 2006 (gmt 0)

A topic yesterday in the Official Google Webmaster Central Blog called Better Understanding of your Site discusses a feature in webmaster tools called "Common words in your site's content".

It says: "Login to webmaster tools, select your verified site, and choose Page analysis from the Statistics tab. Here, under Common words in your site's content we list the phrases detected from your site's content in order of prevalence."

I don't see this feature, and never have done. Anyone else not see it, and would care to speculate why not?

This feature is visible after 1 month.

Did you follow this to the letter:

1. Login to webmaster tools
2. select your verified site
3. and choose Page analysis from the Statistics tab.
3a. Click on the Statistics tab and find the Page analysis link...click on this and then you will find:
4. Here, under Common words in your site's content we list the phrases detected from your site's content in order of prevalence

There are two columns:
=> The left one lists the "Common Words" "in your site's content"
=> The right one lists the anchor text from inbound links to your site

Pretty helpful to see the most commons words that googlebot picks and compare these to the most popular inbound link anchor text phrases...

A month from when? Each time its uploaded, or since we first uploaded ANY sitemap?

I dont see it either

A month from first time you created account for your site.
It's only for domain.com not for subdomain.domain.com

no I really cant see it. We have had our account for a few months, but uploaded new sitemap this week though.

am I doing anything wrong?

Well, I'm glad it's not just me that can't see this data, anyway. I've had Webmaster Tools running for much longer than a month, and my sites have been verified etc.

Under "Page Analysis" I just get those two little tables full of (I have to say) rather useless barcharts showing page type and encodings.

I don't think it takes a month, sites I have added show this info in just a few days.

Common Words: Our prioritized listing of your site's content
The common words feature lists in order of priority (from highest to lowest) the prevalent words we've found in your site, and in links to your site. (This information isn't available for subdirectories or subdomains.)

Anything to do with that perhaps? (from the webmaster central blog).

I just noticed at this feature:

My main domain with all themed subdomains show at this feature only

"No data available"

All this sites are on a roller coaster since June 27th.
Short in good standing from September 30th to November 2nd

So to the common features of this pages with a heavy search penalty:


shows the most irrelevant first (pages with 0 link, Google place mark files and so)

This feature about common words shows only "No Data available"

So let's discuss, is this a common feature of all domains with a search penalty?

I have been crushed by Google on 12/20. I do get all the Page Analysis keywords (yes, this seems to be a new feature). My "site"domain.com" command yields all of my Supplementary sites first, followed by my non-supplementary indexed pages.

Hence, no commonality link for you there.

One observance that I made since yesterday:

One of my keyphrases that I ranked # 1 or # 2 on since as far back as memory goes, yielded a total of 12,000,000 results yesterday. Today, the same query yields only 7,700,000 results. Hence, something must be up in GoogleLand.

As other posts suggested, the first benchmark date for us will be on Tuesday. If things aren't rectified by then, then this could be an admission by Google that "nothing is wrong" in their eyes.

Have a nice Holiday!
