Google has provided some updates to their new Search Console they plan on implementing by the end of March.
Over the last year, the new Search Console has been growing and growing, with the goal of making it easier for site owners to focus on the important tasks. For us, focus means being able to put in all our work into the new Search Console, being committed to the users, and with that, being able to turn off some of the older, perhaps already-improved, aspects of the old Search Console. This gives us space to further build out the new Search Console, adding and improving features over time.
New Search Console has the following improvements over the old version:
- Sixteen months of search traffic data, versus three months in the old product
- Detailed information about a specific page, including index coverage, canonical URL, mobile usability, and more
- Tracking flows to help you monitor, fix, and request a recrawl of pages affected by crawling issues.
- New and improved reports and tools, described next.
- Works on mobile devices.
