Webmaster Tools

Webmaster Tools extends the official API to give programmatically access to various crawl information and functions which are available via the webinterface

The Google Webmaster Tool API is very limited and provides only a little subset of data available via the webinterface. By making use of mechanize, Webmaster Tools gives access to crawl_info, crawl_errors, crawl_stats and allows to submit url removal request (up to 1000 per day)


Simple usage case to get error counts

require 'webmaster_tools'

client =<username>, <password>)

pp client.crawl_error_counts(<url>)


Depends on mechanize to access the webinterface
