    Default Google rolls out index coverage data improvements

    On Monday, Google announced that it was rolling out "significant improvements" to its Index Coverage report, which shows the "indexing state of URLs that Google has visited, or tried to visit, in your property."

    The goal is to "better inform" webmasters on issues that might prevent Google from crawling and indexing pages.

    "The change is focused on providing a more accurate state to existing issues, which should help you solve them more easily." Google said on its Search Central Blog.

    The list of changes include:

    Removal of the generic "crawl anomaly" issue type - all crawls errors should now be mapped to an issue with a finer resolution.
    Pages that were submitted but blocked by robots.txt and got indexed are now reported as "indexed but blocked" (warning) instead of "submitted but blocked" (error)
    Addition of a new issue: "indexed without content" (warning)
    Soft 404 reporting is now more accurate

    Great news! If only this valuable move was undertaken much sooner by Google.

    Improvements yes, although they've reduced the daily indexing quota from 50 down to 10 per day.

    Yes, now we can index only 10 urls per day and that's sad. But the crawl report works pretty good.
