The New GoogleBot Dynamic User Agent Names Are Live

  •   January 14, 2020

Google seems to have recently made the new GoogleBot user agent name that is dynamic for the evergreen GoogleBot live. Bastian Grimm said on Twitter he started noticing the new name on January 12, 2020.

Google’s Martin Splitt said a month ago that the experiment was live, to test the new user agent name in the wild. Google did warn us in October about this user agent name change and then started testing it in December. I would think by now it should be live.

Here is a screen shot from Bastian of the new useragent he found in his log files:
