Google Updates Webmaster Tools API

Google announces an update to its webmaster tools API on which it has been working all summer long. The new API is consistent with other Google APIs, makes the authentication for apps and web services easier than before. It also provides access to the main features of Google webmaster tools.

“If you've used other Google APIs, getting started with the new Webmaster Tools API will be easy! We have examples for Python, Java, as well as OACurl (for fans of command lines).” says John Mueller, the Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google in Google Webmaster Central Blog.

The Google Webmaster Tools API allows developers to submit, read and update data in webmaster tools for verified websites. If you are new to the Webmaster Tools API, Google provides a getting started guide to start learning how to use it in your apps.

This API allows you to:
  • list, add, or remove sites from your account (you can currently have up to 500 sites in your account)
  • list, add, or remove sitemaps for your websites
  • get warning, error, and indexed counts for individual sitemaps
  • get a time-series of all kinds of crawl errors for your site
  • list crawl error samples for specific types of errors
  • mark individual crawl errors as "fixed" (this doesn't change how they're processed, but can help simplify the UI for you)
If you have any questions regarding new updated API, post your questions in Google help forum.
