New Webmaster Center FAQ available

Everybody loves a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ). They often include tidbits of knowledge that are not easily found elsewhere, or present information in ways that often make it more understandable.

The Webmaster Center team has been working hard to present more useful content through the team blog in recent months. We already have a FAQ of sorts through the Webmaster Center Help (see the Help system’s left hand navigation for the Help-based FAQ). We also have some FAQ content in the Webmaster Center forums. We’ve also published a series of Webmaster Center blog comment Q&A posts (parts one and two so far) to address common questions posted to the blog (rather than the forum!).

Today we have posted an edited compilation of Q&As from all of those sources and more into a downloadable PDF as our official Webmaster Center FAQ for your reading pleasure. It is a long document (would you expect anything else from me?), but it is organized into categories and has a navigable table of contents to help you quickly get to the information that interests you most. We hope you find it useful. We’ll be periodically updating, adding to, and revising the FAQ content as new content is developed and new questions are asked. Please be sure to check back from time to time to see what new content has been added. Enjoy!

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to post them in our SEM forum. See you again soon…

    I think this has definetly made some of the help and FAQ content clearer but I think there is still some progress to be made getting site's indexed faster. I've been waiting for my site

    to be indexed for quite a while and have followed all the webmaster guides and instructions.

    Thanks anyway

    Though just downloaded it..I think it covers stringent guidelines for new SEOrs. I will include it for distribution in my free SEO counselling program to NGOs and their computer literate staff.

    Thanks a lot :)
