google-tools1-ss-1920

Google’s John Mueller announced they have made significant changes to the Change Of Address Tool they initially added to Google Webmaster Tools in 2009.

The new changes help walk-through a webmaster through the process of using the tool, while validating most of the important steps are complete. John said the tool will now “guide you through a part of the process” by:

  • Double-checking that you have the sites verified
  • Verifying the redirects are in place
  • Confirming that the redirect doesn’t break verification

Here is a screen shot of the tool’s new interface:

Google believes this should help many of those who had issues with the tool previously. For more details on how to move your site, read Google’s help documentation.
