Google Console is going to be more awesome! It is a beta version, but it will be made default within a few months for all users. It has amazing features like:
- Index Coverage report:
The new Index Coverage report shows the count of indexed pages, information about why some pages could not be indexed, along with example pages and tips on how to fix indexing issues.
It also enables a simple sitemap submission flow, and the capability to filter all Index Coverage data to any of the submitted sitemaps.
2, Faster feedback loops between you and Google:
We’ve built a mechanism to allow you to iterate quickly on your fixes, and not waste time waiting for Google to recrawl your site, only to tell you later that it’s not fixed yet.
Rather, we’ll provide on-the-spot testing of fixes and are automatically speeding up crawling once we see things are ok.
Similarly, the testing tools will include code snippets and a search preview - so you can quickly see where your issues are, confirm you've fixed them, and see how the pages will look on Search.
- More actionable insights:
We will now group the identified issues by what we suspect is the common “root-cause” to help you find where you should fix your code.
We organize these issues into tasks that have a state (similar to bug tracking systems) so you can easily see whether the issue is still open, whether Google has detected your fix, and track the progress of re-processing the affected pages.
