Get ready for the new Google Search Console in Pembroke Pines!!! It is finally here. The long awaited redesign google search console is here and.... I hate it. Ok let start with the new interface. The user interface is much more modern and plain. All the features that were available are now gone. The first thing you see when you login are your search statistics.
The great thing is now you can go as far back as 12 months worth of data. That is where the good ends. Here is Googles official statement about how search console will look now.
How listening to our users helped us build a better Search ConsoleTuesday, February 06, 2018The new Search Console beta is up and running. We’ve been flexing our listening muscles and finding new ways to incorporate your feedback into the design. In this new release we've initially focused on building features supporting the users’ main goals and we'll be expanding functionality in the months to come. While some changes have been long expected, like refreshing the UI with Material Design, many changes are a result of continuous work with you, the Search Console users. We’ve used 3 main communication channels to hear what our users are saying:
In one of these rounds we tested the new suggested design for the Performance report. Specifically we wanted to see whether it was clear how to use the ‘compare’ and ‘filter’ functionalities. To create an experience that felt as real as possible, we used a high fidelity prototype connected to real data. The prototype allowed study participants to freely interact with the user interface before even one row of production code had been written. Try out the new search console. We're not finished yet! Which feature would you love to see in the next iteration of Search Console? P
- Help forum Top Contributors - Top Contributors in our help forums have been very helpful in bringing up topics seen in the forums. They communicate regularly with Google’s Search teams, and help the large community of Search Console users.
- Open feedback - We analyzed open feedback comments about classic Search Console and identified the top requests coming in. Open feedback can be sent via the ‘Submit feedback’ button in Search Console. This open feedback helped us get more context around one of the top requests from the last years: more than 90 days of data in the Search Analytics (Performance) report. We learned of the need to compare to a similar period in the previous year, which confirmed that our decision to include 16 months of data might be on the right track.
- Search Console panel - Last year we created a new communication channel by enlisting a group of four hundred randomly selected Search Console users, representing websites of all sizes. The panel members took part in almost every design iteration we had throughout the year, from explorations of new concepts through surveys, interviews and usability tests. The Search Console panel members have been providing valuable feedback which helped us test our assumptions and improve designs.

It was written by "The Search Console UX Team". Whomever that is. Right now they are in the discover phase of this rollout. Hopefully we can band together and ask for more statistics because right now I really miss the old one.
