Google announced that over the coming weeks it’s going to be changing the way it sends messages in Search Console (formerly Webmaster Tools) and to whom it sends them.
After the change, we will send messages only to the direct owners of a particular site; owners of parent properties will no longer be sent messages for their child properties.
For example: Currently, if the site https://example.com/dont/panic/have/a/towel triggers a message, all of the following sites will be sent the message:
https://example.com/dont/panic/have/a/towel (the site triggering the message)
With the upcoming change, only the owners of https://example.com/dont/panic/have/a/towel will receive the message triggered by their own site.
Illyes says the change will affect most messages, but notes that critical messages like hacked site alerts “might” still be sent to all parent site owners.
The change, he says, is designed to lighten they email loads of users.
What do you think of the changes?
