As the name implies, Google Webmaster (or Search console) is for Webmasters who want their Web sites to be seen on search engines so basically, if you own/manage a Website (or Blog), you're a Webmaster and if you want the best of your site (I'm sure you do), you have to make Google Webmaster a must.

  1. I'm amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have
    hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too
    few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for
    something relating to this.
