Help Shape Google Webmaster Tools

Matt Cutts, Head of Google Spam Team fame, is currently running a poll and suggestion area where you can add your thoughts on what the Webmaster Central team should be devloping next.

The link is on Matt Cutts to vote and add your thoughts.

Nice of Matt to do this and while there is no guarantee that anything will be acted upon my guess is we will see some of these appear at some stage!

The Poll asks the following questions and you have to pick one that you would like to see.

Tell Google the correct country or language for a site
