Google has put together a new collection of resources for webmasters. This includes a page that provides all the different ways the company wants you to contact them if you want to tell them about a page you want to remove from search results, tell them about spam, tell them when you've fixed issues on your site, etc. 

They've also collected various articles from their sites and put them with this information. 

"We provide lots of information for webmasters across many different channels — you can stay up to date with the latest features here on our blog, browse articles in our Help Center, have discussions in our forums (in 17 languages!), watch videos on our YouTube channel, or even read in-depth interviews (in English, Portuguese, and other languages)," says  Mariya Moeva of Google's Search Quality Team.

"There's no shortage of useful information, but sometimes the relevant bits may be a bit difficult to locate, especially for novice webmasters," adds Moeva. "We see the same questions popping up over and over again, so we’ve tried to make our most frequently searched information as accessible and visible as possible: We analysed the questions asked over the past year and a half and identified the issues you are most interested in. We then picked out the relevant bits from across our different resources and collected the answers to those questions in one new convenient FAQ page in our Help Center (available in 20 languages)."

Of course you can always check out Google's Webmaster guidelines, Webmaster Central Blog, and Webmaster YouTube channel (where they post all the Q&A videos from Matt Cutts). Then there's the Webmaster Help Forum and the search engine optimization guide. 

However, these are all conveniently linked to from the new page. So you really only need to keep this one bookmarked, and you should be able to find the resources you need to refer to.
