Monitor overall site health

See why we sometimes put an alert icon next to your site

To help you identify and prioritize the most important issues on your site, Webmaster Tools will display the Site Health alert Google Webmaster Tools Site Health alert icon next to your site on the Webmaster Tools home page whenever we detect certain problems or events that prevent us from crawling or indexing your site. The following events can trigger a Site Health alert:

  • Google detects malware on your site.
  • An important page is removed from your site. If you've intentionally removed a page that was previously generating traffic to your site, you can ignore this alert.
  • An important page is blocked by robots.txt. If you've intentionally blocked a page (because you don't want it to appear in search results), you can ignore this alert.

For more details, click the icon.

We recommend that you regularly check the Webmaster Tools home page to see if your site is experiencing problems.
