You may or may not have noticed, but Google Search Console—formerly Google Webmaster Tools—has received some dramatic upgrades.

For search engine optimization (SEO) experts, this isn't likely new, as the changes have been rolling out since January 2018. For the rest of us though, now is as good a time as any to get better acquainted with the newer Google Search Console.
