Very Few Features Left In The Old Google Search Console

Old Google Search Console Death

The old Google Search Console seems to be holding on for dear life right now. There are only a handful of features left in the tool that remain, including Data Highlighter, International Targeting, Remove URLs, Crawl Stats, robots.txt Tester and URL Parameters. The rest are gone and replaced or mostly replaced in the new Google Search Console.

We knew this was coming and yesterday Google announced on Twitter that the day of reckoning was here.

With that, the Fetch as Google went away, despite most SEOs wanting to keep it Google dropped it. Google believes the URL Inspection tool fulfills enough of the features from the Fetch as Google tool. That tool did launch about ten years ago.

You can see that Google has been active in adding features to the Google Search Console and I suspect they will continue to do so until they can totally ditch the old version.
