The update of renaming the Google search console from “Google Webmaster Central” to “Google Search Central” was made on November 11, 2020. The revamping of branding is done with its new mascot.
The Google bot mascot will now appear with a web crawling side kick spider bot.
When we first met this curious critter, we wondered, “Is it really a spider?” After some observation, we noticed this spider bot hybrid can jump great distances and sees best when surrounded by green light.We think Googlebot’s new best friend is a spider from the genus Phidippus, though it seems to also have bot-like characteristics. – Stated by Google
