This article will be discussing the NEW features of the console and how they can be used. I STRONGLY recommend looking at my Beginner’s Guide to Google Search Console article. I provide an in-depth, yet easy-to-read walkthrough of the old console and all of its features.
I think it would be really helpful for your learning if you open up the Google Search Console. It would be best if you open the old version and the new one. This way you can go through and actually experience it for yourself. It would be great for you to play around with the tools and get used to them.
In the first guide, I tried to stick to a bullet point format in order to make it easy to take notes. I intend to stick to a similar format for this guide too. So, with your notebooks at the ready let’s get stuck in.
At first glance, we can see that the new Google Search Console looks great. The interface is cleaner. I love the colour scheme (so happy that purple managed to make it). Everything looks fresh and up-to-date whilst the old console does look a bit dated. However, for old Google Search Console users, it does seem familiar. It isn’t so shocking of a change that we have to start from scratch.
Thanks for reading my beginner’s guide to the new Google Search Console. As said before, I really recommend that you check out my first article on the old Google Search Console. The old console overlaps with the new in almost every area. In the article, I give an in-depth but easy-to-read description of what each feature does.
Now you know the basics about both search consoles, it’s time to master them. However, it takes a really long time to perfect the use of these tools.
