Google Search Console

The new Google Search Console is rolling out over the next few weeks to all webmasters and you will be able to access the new Google Search Console and the old one via links in the navigation. So you can play with both side by side, as Google keeps adding more and more features in the new version. I covered it yesterday afternoon at Search Engine Land when the news broke and it needs to be covered here as well.

We knew it would roll out early this year and it actually came a lot earlier than I expected - only 8 days into the new year! When we first saw the new beta we were blown away. And even better, it comes with over a years of data - heck, Google announced yesterday the Search Performance report, which is similar to the Search Analytics report, has up to 16 months worth of data!

Most of you have seen all the screen shots of these reports, as we've been covering them for several months now. But here they are again:

The features will come to the API over time, so be patient there. Not all sites yet have access to this yet, but it will be rolled out to all over the upcoming weeks, so be patient there. Not all features in the main Google Search Console are available in the new one, I have to assume they are all being ported over, so be patient there. Both interfaces will be available for the foreseeable future.

So far, it seems most of the SEO and webmaster community are really happy about this. Here are some tweets:

Elliot Ng, who is the lead on this, is giving all the credit to the Search Console team in Tel Aviv for this launch:

He is also watching carefully for feedback and wants to make sure to implement what they can based on that feedback, so make sure he sees your feedback.
