Intro to Google Search Console – Search Console Training


    “Crawling” = Google discovers your page exists
    “Indexing” = Google learns what your page is about, your page title
    “Serving” = Google responds to a person searching and delivers (“serves”) your website as a result, within a certain ranking.

    Hi there, thanks a lot for the intro to the series. Will there be info about the URL parameter report in legacy? It seems to be stuck but eg the legacy international report about hreflang is still working smoothly 😊 Don’t want to lose that report 😕 Pretty please 🙏🏻

    И как всегда. Всё на Английском. У вас ни один миллион аудитории на русском! Опять навязывают свое.

    Advice please…

    I have a category 'page' that ranks on p1 of Google.

    It ranks for several search terms relating to the subject matter of the category and The Title of the Category

    All is good.

    GA and Search Console are positive.


    When I check Search Console I can see a large number of impressions with virtually 0% CTR for a similar search term (in fact there are about 6) – but is not specific enough for people to click on the SERPS as neither the title nor the description match the user intent for this search term.

    This second 'supplemental' search term is not specifically on the category page – although one of the words is used by the supplemental term and also the main category.

    There are – in my opinion (but what does that matter) – better urls on the site for this supplemental term – and when searching directly on Google for this search term, another url is displayed (the 'correct' one)

    Why is this 'incorrect' search term getting many impressions every day?

    I assume that it is happening for signed-in users as I cannot replicate that url coming up in the SERPS when I search.

    It is predominately but not exclusively UK based users.

    Interestingly, Google has chosen to use the Category Name in the SERPS for at least one search term for this category page (Bing has chosen the actual Category Page Title).

    I understand that non-relevant search queries may show up on a 'page' displayed in the search console – but why does it happen when there is a better and more relevant page on the website?

    The other frustrating this is that Google displays a particular search term as the 'Title' in the SERPS – I have tried adding the 'supplemental' search term, but Google doesn't display it.

    Suggestions anyone?

    how come I have to wait a whole day to see what google bot would see?? I"m not trying to get the actual bot to crawl the site, simply preview what it would see when it does crawl so I can modify it properly before submitting it for the actual search.. There should've been a separate tool for that.

    what is the use of submitting a blog to GSC(url method) both http and https ? and also make a detailed video on GSC coverage- error, warnings and excluded. how to solve it( in terms of blogger website)
