Google Rebrands Webmaster ToolsGoogle announced that Webmaster Tools has been renamed Search Console.

According to Google, the rechristening is an effort to make the tool less intimidating and more inclusive for its users. The tool is not solely for webmasters. It's for SEOs, digital marketers, developers and many other roles.

As of right now, the name is the only change that Google has implemented to the tool, although Google's official announcement states:

"We're looking forward to an exciting future with Google Search Console, and hope to see users of all types – including webmasters – drop by and use our service to diagnose and improve the visibility of their content in search. We'll be rolling out the updated branding across the product over the coming weeks, so stay tuned."
