Apps, apps, apps! If you have an Android App & are thinking about App-Indexing, here are's an awesome tool console to help you out!
 
Do you have an indexed app? Now you can see how its content ranks in search and if there are any technical issues.
During the week of the Cannes Film Festival, we're rolling out a red carpet of our own. All app developers and app owners — welcome to Search Console!

I remember ... back when Google Webmaster Tools first launched as a way of submitting sitemap files. It's had an awesome run, the teams have brought it a long way over the years. It turns out that the traditional idea of the “webmaster” reflects only some of you. We have all kinds of Webmaster Tools fans: hobbyists, small business owners, SEO experts, marketers, programmers, designers, app developers, and, of course, webmasters as well. So, to make sure that our product includes everyone who cares about Search, we've decided to rebrand Google Webmaster Tools as Google Search Console .

Hi +John Mueller can the phyton 'API' still be used on the new search console reports?
 Or will there be an official API extension to include this query 'search analyse' data?

Adding a few clarifications: This is for the API, so you'll need to create your own programs / tools to access this data. You can already get started with the existing Webmaster Tools / Search Console API, to see what you'd need to be able to get set up. We're not starting just yet with the test run, it might still be a few weeks. To get included in the test run, please send me your email address (that you use for Webmaster Tools/Search Console) so that I can send you an NDA.

We're having a special guest join us for the Friday office-hours hangout, someone who has worked on various Google websites. We'll be focusing on responsive web-design and chatting about ways to make your pages responsive, common gotchas, and neat tricks! 

If you've had a question or comment regarding responsive webdesign, here's your chance to ask a Googler! If you'd like to join us live to chat "responsive", please let me know (and of course, feel free to tell other webmasters about this session).

Happy HTTP/2 Day!

Welcome RFC 7540.
It's out! This specification describes an optimized expression of the semantics of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), referred to as HTTP version 2 (HTTP/2). HTTP/2 enables a more efficient use of network resources and a reduced perception of latency by introducing header field compression and allowing multiple concurrent exchanges on the same connection. It also …

For app developers, a new Fetch as Google for Apps tool :)
If you have an app, Google is adding additional support for app developers within Google Search Console (formerly Google Webmaster Tools). The most significant is they have created an alpha version of their Fetch as Google designed specifically for apps. To use the tool, you do need to have your app added as a property …

I love reading a good robots.txt file.
Introduction. During the reconnaissance stage of a web application testing, the tester (or attacker) usually uses a list of known subdirectories to brute force the server and find hidden resources. For that purpose, a list of known subdirectories is used such as the one provided with Skipfish or ...

I think that its somewhat the same thing.

Both ways require you to edit text file in your website root, no matter if its robots.txt or .htaccess.

I think it requires the same amount of effort but HTTPAuth offers definite solution.

I just stumbled across this - it's great to see more and more ad-networks getting on board with HTTPS. This is a great step for users. Kudos! 
As the current discussion on setting HTTPS as standard for ad delivery gathers pace, and with Google switching to HTTPS by the end of June, we would like to summarise the information that is relevant for our advertisers and publishers. Google will adjust its ranking algorithm to favour encrypted ...
