It's been around since 'Google site map' wasn't it?
Great tool.

If I understand Google's announcement right than previously, you were only available to see indivudal keywords, but not full phrases...

Maybe I missed how to do it, but there doesn't seem to be any way to see the anchor text to a specific page. I kinda suspected that when I first read it since they placed the data under "Page Statistics" – wouldn't it have made more sense to put it under Links and then show the anchor text there on a per URL basis (?)

While I haven't used 'em, I've read about these "SEO Tools" that also provide the PageRank of the inbound URL, plus number of other external links on that page. The Webmaster team seems to be (slowly) adding all those types of features – pretty cool they are doing this.


P.S. Another interesting aspect would be showing time-based data ... i.e. link growth over time. But I suspect this is starting to get into "Google secret-sauce" territory though! ;-)
