It has been official announced by Google that the full roll out of the new beta version of the Google Search Console on the Webmaster blog. It was reported by Search Engine Land that the beta reached almost everyone as of a couple weeks ago.
“We are happy to announce that the new Search Console is now available to all sites,” Google wrote on its Webmaster Central blog.
For now, the old interface is going to remain up, allowing you to continue using both versions of the Google Search Console.
According to Google, there is much more to come for the new Google Search Console. The company wants users to submit feedback about the new Search Console to see “which feature would you love to see in the next iteration of Search Console.”
In the blog post, the Search Console UX team explains how the new Search Console came about and evolved based on response from users.
The team said, “we A/B tested some of the new Search Console reports against the existing reports with 30,000 users. Search Engine Land tracked issue fix rates to verify new Search Console drives better results and sent out follow-up surveys to learn about their experience.” It received feedback primarily through three methods: the help forums, the submit feedback link and a group of beta testers called the “Search Console panel.”
As examples of how user response informed the product, the team said, “The error and coverage reports were originally separated which could lead to multiple views of the same error. As a result of user feedback we united the error and coverage reporting offering one holistic view. Additionally some of the “most recent feedback confirmed that export functionality was not a nice-to-have, but rather a requirement for many users and helped us tune detailed help pages in the initial release.”
The team will continue to take feedback from users via Search Console’s feedback button and through the user panel.
