URL Inspection Tool Added To Google Search Console

A new beta feature in Google Search Console has been released called the URL inspection tool. The function of this tool is to give you behind the scenes insight into a singular URL on how, or if, Google indexed that page.

In Google’s statement, they stated that the tool “provides detailed crawl, index, and serving information about your pages, directly from the Google index.”

Google’s help document goes in depth on more specifics that the tool helps with, but on a top level it provides AMP errors, structured data errors and any indexing issues Google experienced.  Here are a few screenshots of what the tool looks like in action:

This tool will be extremely effective for technical audits and maintaining the performance of your website!
