    Is it important to submit website in google webmaster tools? Does it have any impact on seo?

    Unless you're doing some serious blackhat link building, there's no harm in submitting it.

    I like to submit a site to GWT, and then submit my sitemap. I've found it does great things for the indexing time. You can also see some keyword analytics in GWT after a bit of time.

    For one website it's fine... but I'd think twice about adding more websites to one GWT account.

    Especially if your linking to your websites using the same blog networks for example.

    I maybe being a bit paranoid though. :google2:

    This are the benefits you'll gain. Also, you'll receive notifications if there are any crawler errors.

    if you're doing only whitehat stuff go for it, you can see all the keywords you're ranking for much better than any tool can show them, same for backlinks, you can see if at any point you'll receive a penalty and a few other good stuff

    It can provide information about technical issues on your page. I like the crawl report, you can see a lot of data there.

    You should add your site to GWT! But try to use separate accounts if you are not doing white hat!

    yes its important to submit your site in GWT. So that you get some technical issues about site,
    Once you fix the issue and then send a reconsideration request using GWT only.

    If you are doing heavy blackhat stuff to a site then maybe recommended not using GWT and use statcounter or piwik instead, you get all data from them too.

    Google Webmaster Tools is a set of tools for webmasters. However, what you don't know right away is that is a very useful tool set that allows you to communicate with Google and adjust many aspects of how Google sees your site, such as list the external and internal links to your site, adjust the crawl rate at which Google bot indexes your site, check the keywords users typed to land on your site, as well as the click through rate for each keyword, see your site's statistics and many more.

    I think that without GWT, your SEO purpose is not complete. This tool provide data about how your site go to SE and its behaviour. It provide accurate data compare to other related tools or software.
