New Video Page Indexing Report Coming To Google Search Console

At Google I/O yesterday, Google announced a new report coming to Google Search Console named the video page indexing report. This report will be available under the index section in Search Console and will show you a summary of all the video pages Google found while crawling and indexing your web site.

This was quickly previewed by Dikla Cohen, a Web Ecosystem Consultant at Google. The report works like the other indexing reports but focuses on video specific content only. It will help you:

(1) See how many video landing pages Google discovered and in how many of them a video was indexed.

(2) Examine reasons for unindexed videos in landing pages.

(3) Use the list of affected video pages URLs to debug and fix issues.

(4) Validate fix to initiate re-crawling of known affected URLs
