Matt Cutts wants your opinion about Webmaster Tools

seo tips
Matt Cutts, has taken to his personal blog to inquire people what they would like to see Google Webmaster Tools recommend in 2014. 

So here’s your time to have your voice heard. 

Matt Cutts lists fourteen items himself as things he could “imagine people wanting,” but notes that he’s just brainstorming, and that there’s no promise any of these will actually be workeon. 

Among his ideas are: making authorship easier, improving spam/bug/error/issue exposure, a choice to download pages from your site that Google has crawled,checklists for new businesses, reports with advice for improving mobile/page speed, the skill to let Google know about “fat pings” of content ahead of publishing it to the web.

 Google knows where it first appeared, better duplicate content/scraper reporting tools, showing pages that don’t validate, showing pages that link to your 404 pages, show pages on your site that lead to 404s and broken links, better bulk URL elimination, refreshing data faster, improving the robots.txt checker, and ways for site owners to tell Google about their site. 

Even if we don’t see all of these things come to Webmaster Tools in the near future, it’s attractive to see the things Cutts is openly thinking about. 
The post is quickly accumulating comments from Webmasters, so Google will certainly have plenty of ideas to work with.
