I was surprised to see this back-to-basics introduction. Clearly, Google is reaching out to all those that have no clue. There must be a lot of those!

Inquiring minds want to know: Are they saying it to google, or has google simply been eavesdropping?

If I were making a www site for my business and had never done anything of the sort before, I don't think it would occur to me to consult google for advice. I mean, why would you? It's a search engine. (Speaking, ahem, as a normal human ;))

Quick detour to g### with representative query "how do i make a web site for my business?" does not immediately bring up their how-to-- though it brings up plenty of others. Does that mean they haven't the nerve to put themselves at the top of the SERPs, or that they haven't considered all possible queries?

I ran a site: search and there is a promotion at the top pushing Google Webmaster Tools. Has that always been there? I've never noticed it before.

It's been there many months. It still shows up even when you have registered for WMT and do a site search from the same account.

Today the ad background colour is the same white as the rest of the page. The ad is in a box though.
