Google Search Console To Change Coverage Report To Pages

Published

on

Google Search Console URL Inspection Tool Errors Continue

Remember the new video page indexing report Google demonstrated at Google I/O? Well, I didn’t pick up on this but Google may be renaming the “coverage” report to “pages” report. If you look at the screenshot Google shared at Google I/O, the coverage report was renamed to “pages.”

This was spotted by the sleuths at Marketing O Clock who called me out for missing this, as I did, I missed it. Here is a screenshot of both reports, on the left is the normal link to coverage and on the right is the screenshot from the demo at Google I/O with the coverage report renamed to Pages and of course that new “Video pages” report:

So just a heads up, Google may rename coverage to pages at some point in the future. Or maybe Google is just messing with us in this demo?

Google Product Grid Results Are Organic

Google Search Results Rolls Out Much More Visual Design

We’ve been seeing a lot of grid-like formats with products and shopping results. We know some are ads and some are organic. John Mueller of Google just added official Google representative confirmation that many of these are organic – if you don’t trust that there is no ad label on them as evidence enough.

The other day, Dan Shure posted on Twitter this screenshot (click it to enlarge) of this grid product format and said “This is quite the search result page – there are up to SIXTEEN products below a SINGLE organic listing (in addition to the image carousels) and desktop is infinite scroll.”

Well, yea, these are organic. John responded on Twitter saying “They’re organic results too. This is one of the reasons it’s good to dig into our ecommerce site guidance if you sell products.”

Honestly, like I said before, I am not a huge fan of these grid formatted results for products. At least, they should be in some “click to expand” feature so you can see more. So show one line of these results with a click to expand. It is just too much in my opinion, even if Google is confident of the intent of the query.

Also, not all of these image snippets need markup to work, although these with the pricing and reviews probably do…
