    Hi Friends,
    I am not happy with new Google Webmasters Tool (search console) because this is not user friendly and lots of options are not in new version.
    What about your opinion friends and tell me if anything is helpful in new one.
    SEMrush
    Thanks

    The new Google Webmaster Tools is total junk. SUPER SLOW. VERY HARD TO NAVIGATE. Missing many of the only things that mattered.

    For an example, when trying to get a changed link re-indexed, Google sometimes takes OVER TEN (10) MINUTES to verify whether a link is indexable or not. In the meantime, I cannot use my computer for anything else because Google is a CPU hog. What is really sad is that determining whether a link is indexable or not should not even be tested for here as EVERY LINK will be tested when googlebot tries to index it. WHY DOES GOOGLE NEED TO TEST THE SAME LINK TWO (2) times, once here and AGAIN when the bot gets around to indexing the link?

    Not too fond of it initially. I miss the very easy "Fetch" from the old version. The replacement for it in the new console takes way too long. However, as I'm learning more about it, I'm finding some features that I do like.

    To me SEO has gone the way of paid services. You can get a lot more information if you pay for it. What Google offers for free is not enough, and the natural result is large corporations are able to buy their way to the top because they can buy the data, while the average webmaster is left with an inferior tool called webmaster tools. I was looking at some serps today. There were approximately 8 google ads on the page, and then 4 paid directories with the same sites in them, and then maybe 3-4 organic sites, so the ratio or paid to organic was about 4 to 1. That being said, I like a lot of what Google is doing, but I wish they would improve in this area.

    Personally i really miss feature to fetch more than 10 keywords at once in AdWords. New versions of Google tools indeed have usefull updates, but why do developers have to sacrifice several old features??

    Because it then it's easier for a Google Partners to sell things to you. You'll need their services more. Doesn't that make sense? There are lots of products for $99 a month or so that will get you all the keywords you need.
