Big news coming from Google this week. Search Console may get a big interface update this year and the available print screens that got out look amazing!
Check them out:
Don't know about you but I think Search Console definitely needed a change in looks. The basic interface slightly changed since Google Search Console was called Google Webmaster Tools, it looks outdated and basically as websites from the 90s.
If Google Analytics got a makeover the last few years it is time Search Console got one. From the print screens above I'm also seeing a little more information about errors, indexed pages as well as overall better informational data.
I'm hoping all these changes will help me better understand how to optimize websites for Google Search, get them cleaned up and error free. I have over 70 different domains and subdomains in my Search Console at the moment, I also want the main listing page to be updated and a lot more user-friendly, managing all those domains is no easy task for an SEO with the current version of Search Console.
This updated version of Search Console is currently running in a closed beta version. But I hope by the end of the year we at least will get an open version of the beta version.
What do you think about how the new Search Console looks? How time do you spend every day using Google Search Console?
