This is good news for all the webmasters who care about website traffic and reputation. If you have a site with a poor reputation in the eyes of search engines, you will end up having a low page rank and loss of blog or website traffic.
In the past website owners have had so many things to worry about, These include Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Preventing malware on your websites, setting up robot.txt files and struggling with the Removal of their pages.
With Google Site Health, the load has been reduced and the work of a webmaster has been made simpler. Many people end up losing traffic to their websites because of bad Robot.txt files. They end up blocking search engines from accessing their sites yet thinking that they are doing a good thing.
The good news is that Google Site Health will help to show the robot.txt files are blocking search engines from accessing some of your pages which will in turn reduce the number of visitors to your blog or website.
There are also many people whose websites get hacked and later infected by malware. This will prompt search engines like Google to show a “note safe” note on your website in their search results. In turn, people will fear to click on the link to your website for fear of damaging their computers. Google Site Health, will help such people to find the malware on their sites and in turn win back the trust of their visitors which will help them to increase their website traffic.

Susan Moskwa, Google Webmaster Trends Analyst, notes that Google is using the display currently only for accounts with less than 100 sites listed. Webmasters with more than 100 sites will see site health at the top of the Dashboard for each site. While I’m not 100% certain it seems to suggest that accounts with more than 100 domains still have to use the old way of verifying that everything’s all right with their websites.
Google also mentioned that the 3 factors of malware, removed URLs, and blocked URLs are not the only indicators of a healthy website and that they will expand to service in the future to include more indicators.
