For you webmasters and website owners out there, Google has a little treat for Star Wars Day (May The Force / Fourth be with you), in Google Search Console. They’ve added a theme you can activate with some goodies to brighten your day.
Google Star Wars Day: Getting Started
Upon logging in, you’ll notice a little icon in the top right of C-P3O:
Upon clicking it, easter eggs appear in Google Search Console Star Wars Day. Here is the welcome message:
Pretty neat, huh?
STAR WARS DAY – MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU
Celebrate your Star Wars fandom with us today, May the 4th, the official Star Wars holiday!
Join the resistance against the Empire, or maybe just keep a lookout for Star Wars references.
You can join or leave this universe by clicking the button at the top of the screen.
May the 4th be with you!
Leaving the Galaxy
Speaking of leaving this universe, one of the easter eggs attempts to do just that! On the Performance report, there is a new filter: Galaxy: This.
Upon clicking the filter, you can … switch galaxies.
But don’t get your hopes up too much, our technology isn’t there yet, unfortunately :(.
But don’t forget you’re lightsaber, you’ll still need it! You can pick one up on a few of the pages with graphs, like Coverage and Mobile usability. Check it out:
It also animates as you click through different filters, with sound (no sound was recorded in this gif, you’ll have to check it out for yourself).
There are some other easter eggs as well, but we’ll leave you to find them! Thanks Google, this made the day just a little brighter.
