SEO: 6 Critical Reports on the New Google Search Console

Google Site Search
Google continues to migrate important search engine optimization tools to the new Search Console. Several more tools moved over the holiday season, making the new version just as important as the old. But the new version can’t replace the old one just yet. We still need to monitor our sites in both places. The old interface links to reports in the new version, but once in the new, you can no longer access the old reports easily without going back to the start (in the old interface). Still, it’s a small price to pay for this critical information. If you’re still not verified to access Google Search Console, do it. It’s free and contains info found nowhere else.

Google Search Console reporting bug drops some image search…

Cludo
Google has lost data in the Google Search Console’s search analytics and performance reports starting on Dec. 1 . Specifically, Google said image search data was lost because of a bug. It is not clear how much data was lost and over what period of time but we do know that when you filter your search analytics and performance reports by image search, on Dec. 1, it may be missing some reporting data. What Google confirms. Google posted on the data anomalies page, “December 1 onward: Some data for clicks in Google Images from mobile devices was dropped. This change only affects Search Console reporting, not your actual performance on Google Search.” John Mueller from Google confirmed that this was a bug and not an intentional change to how Google reports on ima

Google seems to be rolling out a new feature in the search results designed to bring more attention and awareness to features within Google Search Console. What’s the update? Google may show verified site owners a brief dashboard of their website performance statistics from Google Search Console right in the search results, as a teaser, to get them to click into Google Search Console and learn more about their sites. The dashboard shows clicks, impressions and average position for the past 28 days compared to the previous time period. It also offers additional tips on how to improve their site in search. Google was quietly testing this feature a month ago, but as of this morning, it seems to be rolling out to all site owners. Why should you care? This shoul

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 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.

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
