A just a day after Google said that it would be consolidating the data from within the Google Search Console’s performance report to the canonical URL, the search engine company decided to preview the consolidated data view on Thursday.  This is at least a month earlier than they planned.

By logging into Google Search Console and clicking on your performance report, you should be able to see a message near the top that says, “Performance data is now based on canonical URLs.”  You’ll also find an option that says “Switch to old view.”  According to Google, the old view of the data will be available until April 10th.

Check out the screenshots of the view from some on Twitter, comparing the consolidated view and the old view:

There are some cases where the reports will show significant changes and others in, they do not.

Google Webmaster Trends Analyst, John Mueller, confirmed on Twitter that this is rolling out as a preview:


In order to access the preview, just go to your performance report, select a verified property and start digging into your data.
