Google in Webmaster tools added a new "Messages" feature that'll appear on all site pages, and that only show messages for currently selected site. This gives more freedom to choose how you want to view messages: either for all sites or for just one site at a time.

Alerts (formally SiteNotice messages) will now be more prominent in Message Center, and will tell you about significant changes Google've noticed related to your site like: an increase in crawl errors, 404 errors, or about possible outages.

  • Messages containing alerts will be marked with an icon to make them quickly distinguishable from other messages. Each site's Dashboard will display a notification for unread alerts.
  • You can also enable alerts filter yourself. On home page, enabling alerts filter across all your sites is a great way to see alerts you may have missed and may help you find problems common across multiple sites.
