Google Webmaster tools

Yet again, Google has impressed me a specific set of tools for managing a Website (They call is "Webmaster Central") within the Google database. Webmasters will first need to verify ownership of the domain (which is a good security measure.) Once you have verified ownership, webmasters get access to all kinds of useful data on their website. Here is just a few of the features I think are useful.

- Add a Sitemap file. Very useful for those in need of some eCommerce SEO help.
- Robots.txt analysis
- Crawl stats (including page rankings)
- Check internal and external links (and who links to your site.)

Here is a link to the official Google announcement back in Febuary.
