Email from Webmaster Tools - strange but good

    In checking my email, I found early this week I received an email from the above party, telling me  they will notify me by email of any errors they find when crawling my site... Did we all get one? I wonder if they are doing it because of problems mentioned by staff early this week...

      If a person has a site registered with Google Webmaster Tools then they all received the same message.  It is also a message alert when you sign in.  Seems to me that they are doing it as a courtesy to webmasters since many of them just ignore the message center when they log in.  This can help you a lot if you have control over your site's database but it is of no consequence if Hubpages is the only site you are monitoring.

        Do they report errors to HubPages and not to the hubbers?

          They only make reports available to the webmasters.  Any errors that are found are the webmaster's responsibility to address.

            Thanks livewithrichard. I knew it was too good to be true that we would get reports. I don't have a site of my own, unfortunately.

      I got the email too, but I have 6 websites other than HubPages. I really like this feature, I normally check my Webmaster Tools once a week at best, so it'll be nice to see if there is something wrong right away.

        Lucky you. I need to set up a website. I do have an inactive blog.

    My hubpages are not linked to webmaster tools, but I got the email. So it's across the board.
