Google modified how it’s displaying errors inside a number of the Search Console stories to indicate solely legitimate or invalid classifications, the corporate introduced in the present day. As a substitute of the protection report exhibiting errors, legitimate with warnings and legitimate; now the report simply exhibits invalid or legitimate info.

What modified. Google stated the URLs or gadgets within the Search Console report are not grouped on the high degree by three or extra standing classes, i.e. Legitimate, Warning, and Error. Now they’re grouped or categorised into two extra broad statuses that replicate whether or not these URLs or gadgets are invalid or not. Google stated invalid means that there’s a report-specific important challenge within the web page or merchandise, and not invalid implies that the merchandise would possibly nonetheless include warnings, however has no important points. The implications and precise phrases for the legitimate and invalid states varies by report kind, Google added.

Google defined “grouping the top-level merchandise (a wealthy consequence for the wealthy consequence stories, a web page or URL for the opposite stories) into two teams: pages or gadgets with important points are labeled one thing like invalid; pages or gadgets with out important points are labeled one thing like legitimate. We predict this new grouping will make it simpler to see shortly which points have an effect on your website’s look on Google, with a view to aid you prioritize your fixes.”

What’s seems to be like. Google shared this earlier than and after protection report pattern:

The API will take months to replicate these adjustments in “in just a few months.” It will take longer for the API and due to that “which means in case your property exhibits the up to date merchandise classification in Search Console, you would possibly see variations when evaluating outcomes from the product interface and the API,” Google defined. Google will replace us on the standing of the API adjustments sooner or later.

Impacted stories. Google stated these are the next stories impacted by this classification change and you’ll study extra precisely how every report is impacted on this assist doc:
