A few months ago we announced an API infrastructure upgrade
to improve the performance of the Search Console API as demand grows. Today we’re happy to announce
some more updates coming your way:
If you make your own calls to the API, read on.
The Performance report already supports fresh data that is less than a day old. You can now access this data through the API by passing the request parameter
dataState with value set to all. The data you get for this value will also include fresh data that is not yet final. If you wish to get only final data,
you can either pass this parameter with value set to final or not pass it at all and you will get only final data by default.
A few months ago, we added a News tab on Search filter to the
Performance report. This information is now also available in the API, and you can access it by setting the value of searchType
parameter in the request to news.
The Sitemaps API now supports domain properties, as other Search Console APIs already do. You can query, add, and delete your sitemaps on
domain properties, for example:
We’ll drop the support in the Webmasters discovery document. If you’re querying the Search Console API using an external API library, or querying
the Webmasters API discovery document directly, you will
need to update your API calls to include the following changes.
For updates on the API library changes, refer to the Java and
Python quickstart guides,
for an updated API usage guide.
For all Webmasters service-related imports, change the webmasters package to the searchconsole.v1 package. Examples:
Note that the objects are exactly the same as before, only the package changes.
When building the Webmasters service object, make the following change:
webmasters_service = build('webmasters', 'v3', http=http)
webmasters_service = build('searchconsole', 'v1', http=http)
Again, there’s no change in how objects behave.
The discovery document querying changes include:
If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the Search
Central community or on Twitter.
