Google’s John Mueller issued a “PSA” this morning clarifying that the old Google Search Console is not closing in March. What is closing are some of the old features noted that are going away in March. But the old Search Console will remain active for some time until the other features are ported over.
Here is John’s tweet:
PSA Search Console is *not* going away. The old Search Console is *not* closing in March. A few features are going away, the rest will remain for the moment. Check out our blog post: https://t.co/Bp2DH2YKAK(saw/heard some folks saying it was going away: it’s not)

There are some rumors going around that in March the old Google Search Console won’t be accessible. That is not true. What will happen is that you will see some features simply not work anymore and some of those features won’t have replacements.
Of course, the new Google Search Console will continue to be built upon and Google plans to keep adding features there.
