To help website owners better understand how Googlebot crawls their sites, we're launching a brand new version of the Crawl stats report in Search Console.

The new Crawl Stats report brings the following exciting new features:

  1. Total number of requests grouped by response code, crawled file type, crawl purpose, and Googlebot type.
  2. Detailed information on host status
  3. URL examples to show where in your site requests occurred
  4. Comprehensive summary for properties with multiple hosts and support for domain properties

The Crawl Stats report enables website owners to see Google crawl data totals and overtime charts for: total requests, total download size and average response time.
