The special feature about the Index coverage in this version of the console is that it lists indexed URLs and gives warnings about issues encountered in indexing- along with reasons for why Google isn’t indexing some URLs. So in all, Index coverage report is overall similar to Index status report.

The report shows changes over time and improvements to site indexing over a given time frame.

Clicking on any error URL will bring up links to diagnostics tools, as well as a way to resubmit the URL for indexing. The data can also be exported for deeper analysis. Google notes that this report “works best for sites that submit sitemap files.”

AMP Status Report:

Any errors and warnings around your AMP URLs are given in the AMP status report.

It highlights the URLs which have issues, gives a diagnosis of the issue and lets you fix the issue. After this, it then tests to ensure that the AMP URL is now valid.

Google has declared that you can give the command to allow the search console to validate the fix across multiple pages. Once the issue is resolved, Google has said it will “crawl and reprocess the affected URLs with a higher priority.” Also, the AMP reports can be shared with external teams.

Job Posting Report:

Now you can get better insights about all the job postings you post on your site in the Job Posting report. This will help you know the hits and other statistics for your postings and also indexing issues if there are any.
