URL Inspection Tool in Google Search Console
A new URL inspection tool that shows you details about how Google crawled, indexed and processed a specific URL on your website.
Google has announced a new feature in the beta Google Search Console that allows you to check a specific URL on your website to see the status of how Google search sees that URL. This feature is called the URL inspection tool and is now rolling out to Google Search Console users over the coming weeks.
This tool “provides detailed crawl, index, and serving information about your pages, directly from the Google index,” Google says. It will show the last crawl date, the status of that last crawl, any crawling or indexing errors and the canonical URL for that page. It will show if the page was successfully indexed, any AMP errors, structured data errors and indexing issues.
If a page isn’t indexed, you can learn why. The new report includes information about noindex robots meta tags and Google’s canonical URL for the page.
A single click can take you to the issue report showing all other pages affected by the same issue to help you track down and fix common bugs.
