Recently it turned out that the launch of the new Googlebot, which will now always work based on the latest version of Chromium, was launched several months ago.

In November, the new crawler indexed 10% of the Internet, and last week this figure was increased to 100%. This was told by Google employee Martin Split during the last video call for webmasters.

SEO experts and site owners did not notice that Google uses a new robot, because it had an old user agent. But in fact, it was a different, updated crawler.

Google started the launch with 1% of the Internet and gradually increased this figure to 100%, after which it officially announced the change.

Recall that last week Google shared more detailed information on the work of the new crawler.
