Two new features have been added to Google Webmaster Tools. The first one is to notify webmasters of faulty redirects and second for showing color-coded-HTML syntax within fetch as Google feature.

Google is also sending notifications to the webmasters who are directing mobile users to their homepage instead of the destination URL. In June 2014, Google updated guidelines asking webmasters to direct the smartphone users to the page they actually wanted to see.

Now, Google is notifying webmasters that same error is appearing for mobile users in Google search results. The notification is being sent to convince webmasters that instead of using a redirect, they should send the user to a mobile friendly version of the page.

@Marie_Haynes has shared a nice screenshot of the notification:

Color-coded HTML markup and code helps developers and webmasters in debugging issues. So, Google Webmaster Tools has received color-coded syntax in the Fetch as Google feature.
