Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
No messages for 67 sites; I guess no news is good news?
Help message says this:
The message center provides a way for us to communicate important information to you regarding your Google webmaster tools account and the sites you manage. Our intent is to make it easy for you to receive important information associated with your sites.
Now, if they'd just fix a few little itsy bitsy other things...
Today we're launching our Message Center, a new way for webmasters to receive personalized information from Google in our webmaster console. Should we need to contact you, you'll see a notification in your Webmaster Tools dashboard.
Initially the messages will refer to search quality issues, but over time we'll use the Message Center as a communication channel for more types of information.
That "Official Google Webmaster Help group", and I emphasize, "Official" is one of the most mismanaged messes I have ever seen.
To keep on topic, I will not expand on it here, but just emphasize that maybe Google will communicate through the new message system and not make it a mess like the "Official" Help Group.
What a 170 billion dollar public company cannot afford a dedicated team of software engineers to answer some basic questions on Webmaster best practices....
Google Webmaster Help [groups.google.com]
I'm not expecting them to tell me how to rank anyway.
That's about the only question I'd ask, in a roundabout way, and since they know that, they keep silent for the most part.
...[I] haven't yet seen this approach from the others. I think Google is getting it [googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com].
