Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Oops it looks like Google has again forgotten about CASE sensitivity! They originally specified a file with upper case characters and now they've forgotten to check for upper and lower case! (They had promised in the past they would keep checking for both!)
Maybe I'll switch to the meta-tag. Perhaps this is completely unrelated to the NEW LOOK. Sorry.
When I get back into the tool I am excited about the extra searchterm data.
I couldn't check keywords easily, there is no option to list 100, 250, 500 keywords per page like the old version and i'm not clicking through 10,000 keywords 20 at a time.
I'm leaning towards the old right now but the new isn't all bad otherwise.
I've edited the thread title to reflect this new bit of information from Google:
You may notice that your backlinks data differs between the new and old versions—this is because we're still filling in data for some sites in the new version. We hope that you'll find the new data more comprehensive once it's 100% filled in.
I believe that sites that have meta tags uploaded are not getting de-verified as only one of my sites was de-verified that was having an HTML file, rest all are working fine.
Probably this new version update might be the reason for the non-existent 404 errors that Google was showing from past 2-3 months.
Logged into my Google Account today and clicked my Webmaster Tools, each one has become unverified, although annoyed i decided to go in and just reverify them.
When i clicked the verify button it says on each site....
Verification status: VERIFIED
but it still gives me the option to choose a verification method? I havent reverified yet as im not sure what to do? Any advice?
