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 ⚙️?

Google Search Console Crawl Stats to Update Soon

Google Site Search
Google Search Console stopped updating data for crawl stats back on May 23rd for all users.  But for those worried it might be a permanent change due to the migration to the new Google Search Console, it is not.  The stats should start updating again soon.John Mueller from Google confirmed that it is a known issue in Search Console and site owners will be seeing crawl data soon.  He also adds a comment that site owners can always check log data to see Googlebot visits outside of Google Search Console.When I asked about this yesterday, they said the crawl stats data wasn't that far away to being back up to speed. Patience! Or check your log files 🙂— John ☆.o(≧▽≦)o.☆ (@JohnMu) June 6, 2018He also confirmed that the paused data in GSC was not a result of any migration, just that it was mer
Removing Sitemap Files From Google Search Console

Removing Sitemap Files From Google Search Console

Google Site Search
In Google Search Console, you can add and remove sitemaps from your site, and Google will include information related to the sitemap files such as any warnings or errors, as well as pages indexed from the crawl.   While Google can discover and crawl sitemaps on its own, submitting makes it faster and easier, and it helps for tracking indexing.  You can also remove a sitemap from Search Console as well.But removing a sitemap from a site within Google Search Console is not a viable solution for stopping Google from crawling a sitemap file.  It will stop the errors and warnings that show up related to specific sitemaps in Search Console but Google can still crawl and attempt to index links within those removed sitemaps.If you no longer want Google to process a sitemap file, you also need t
