Google Search Console URL Inspection Tool Errors Continue



Google Search Console URL Inspection Tool Errors Continue

Yesterday, Google confirmed that some folks trying to use the URL Inspection tool via the console or even the API may be seeing errors. Google said it is working on a fix but almost a day later, some are still having issues and Google has yet to confirm it is resolved.

Google wrote on Twitter “We’re experiencing an issue with the URL inspection tool, both in Search Console and the API, so you might see an increase in errors when inspecting URLs. We’re working to solve this issue and will update you when we have more information.”

I do wonder if some bad actors are abusing the new URL Inspection tool API or if Google underestimated its usage – or maybe it is unrelated?

In any event, a few hours ago, there were more complaints in the Google Webmaster Help forums about this, with one webmaster saying “something went wrong in URL Inspection,” and he shared this photo:

So just keep in mind that Google is aware of the issue and working on it. There is no ETA for a fix but to be honest, I keep trying the URL Inspection tool myself and it works fine for me. But clearly some folks are still having errors.

And no, this is not causing indexing issues:

Google Ads Testing Replacing Ad Label With Sponsored Label



Google Ads Testing Replacing Ad Label With Sponsored Label

Google Ads is testing replacing the “ads” label with a “sponsored” label again. And just so you know, Google in 2010 replaced the “sponsored” label with an “ad” label until this day. Yea, sometimes we do see “sponsored” labels in Google Search but not for the normal search ads – those have been labeled “ads” for the UK and US regions for a long time now.

I personally cannot replicate this but Bastiir posted some screenshots of this on Twitter:

Test: Sponsored label in Google Search:

Normal: Ads label in Google Search:

Here is another full size screenshot you can click on to see the “sponsored” label:

Here are more tests:

I personally like the “sponsored” label, makes it feel more luxury. 🙂

Update: Google has now confirmed this as a test and sent Search Engine Land this statement:

This is part of a series of experiments to help users more easily identify the brand or advertiser associated with the Search ads they may see for a given query. We are always testing news ways to improve the experience for users on the search results page, but we don’t have anything specific to announce right now.
