Google Search Console reporting currently delayed

Google Search Console reporting currently delayed

Google Site Search
Google posted on Twitter Friday morning that some of their reports within Google Search Console are currently delayed more than their normal two-days. “Some Search Console reports are currently a bit more delayed due to issues in the reporting pipeline,” the company said. This has no impact on your search rankings, this is just a reporting issue. Which reports are delayed? Specifically, the AMP, Rich Results / Structured Data, Hreflang, Index Coverage, and Mobile Usability reports are all delayed according to Google. I will say that I did check several of these reports, and not all of them are delayed. For example, while the mobile usability and AMP reports are both a week old, the index coverage report is only two days delayed, which is the normal expected

Google Search Console out of beta, adds more features

Google Site Search
Google has announced the new Google Search Console is out of beta after being tested for over a year. Over the year, Google has done a full open beta invite to all users and has been migrating features from the old Google Search Console to the new version. With this, Google removed the word “beta” from the top menu bar. Here is what the bar looked like this morning: That side bar has removed the word “beta,” grouped together some of the features on the left sidebar and added new features and options in the new Google Search Console. Google has added a “manual actions” section to the sidebar, which was not there this morning. Google also said it has launched a “Test Live” feature for the URL inspection tool. Here is a screen shot of the new menu bar: Manual

Google Site Search
Google has quietly posted that they are now removing query data from the Google Search Console reports that they identify as “anonymous queries.” Google said “an anonymous query is a query submitted only a few users.” Google added that they “omit these queries from results to protect user privacy.” Google said the amount of queries removed depend on the site, Google said “some sites will have very few unique queries; other sites will have a large proportion of anonymous queries.” Google wrote on the page: Chart totals no longer include anonymous* (rare) queries when you apply a query filter. Previously, the chart totals included all anonymous queries when a “Queries not containing:” filter was applied. Because of this, you might see a drop in clicks and i

If you access your new Google Search Console report, specifically the Index Coverage report, you will see a notation around July 14 about a “Google Search Update.” It is not about the big core search algorithm update that happened last week; it is about a system change to the reporting within Google Search Console. Google has noted it upgraded the Index Coverage report to a “new, more accurate system.” I really wish Google hadn’t written “Google Search Update” there because SEOs, webmasters, publishers and site owners are going to be confused about the terminology added to that screen in Google Search Console. This was a reporting update to Google Search Console’s Index Coverage report; this is not about a Google search algorithm update. Between the dates o

If you want more information about your site’s natural search performance, Google gives it to you. Take some of it with a grain of salt, but there’s no reason not to listen. Google Search Console’s dashboard view displays messages, errors, performance, and indexation. Search Console is Google’s way of communicating with webmasters and search engine optimization professionals about the status of their site within its search results. Setting up Google Search Console can be a little daunting. It usually requires a developer’s help, unless you have access to a tag manager. It’s well worth the effort, though, for all of the tools you have access to. After “verifying” your site, you’ll see messages from Google about how your site looks in search results, as well as its perform

On Friday, Google announced that the Search Console Search Analytics API now lets developers request 25,000 rows of data per request. This figure is up from 5,000 rows of data per request previously. Google also added 16 months of data to the Search Analytics API, so giving developers a way to get more data out of the API is a good thing. Google said, “Are you using the Search Console Search Analytics API? We recently increased the max results/request to 25k and put together a guide for getting all your site’s data.” Are you using the Search Console Search Analytics API ⚙️?
