Organizing Pages into Page Sets: You need to make page sets to tell Data Highlighter which pages of your site contain data. Data highlighter teaches Google only about those pages that are present in page set.

You can't use Data Highlighter for those pages that already contain HTML markup specifying the data structure.

If still you use Data Highlighter for the pages on the site that already contain HTML markup then this tool teach Google only about the pages without the markup.

Detecting Changes in a Page Set: Every time when Google crawls pages on your site this tool extracts data and makes the data available for rich snippets.

This webmaster tool can give a huge benefits for website optimization & really helpful for those organizations that don't have an SEO budget.
