Google, after much speculation, has finally made the official launch of the new Search Analytics API for the Google Search Console.
Google opted for making the data available via an API after much positive feedback about the Search Analytics feature within the Google Search Console.
John Mueller, on behalf of Google, says through Google+:
"If you've been hungry for even more information about your website's performance in search, if you're happy to whip up some code, and yearning to play with another API, we hope you'll savor the new Search Analytics API for Search Console. There are lots of neat things that could be done with it & we're keen to see how you end up using it. Take a look, grab an editor, fill up a beverage of your choice, and give it a shot!”
The API will help developers to integrate search performance data within apps and tools. Getting ramped up on the Search Analytics API would now be a breeze developers who are familiar with other Google APIs, or the Google Search Console.
