Google Search Console Video Indexing Report Now Available

Advertising

Google is adding a new report to Search Console that will help you understand how your videos are performing in search results.

Previewed in May at Google I/O, the Video Indexing report makes it easier to identify and fix issues preventing your videos from surfacing in Google Search.

You can use the report to answer questions such as:

Advertising

  • In how many pages has Google identified a video?
  • Which videos were successfully indexed?
  • What are the issues preventing videos from being indexed?

As with other Search Console reports, when you fix a current issue, you can use the report to validate the fix and track the update of video pages in Google’s index.

Prior to today’s update, Google Search Console only flagged videos tagged with structured data.

The video indexing report does not depend on structured data to identify videos and therefore does not report on the validity of video markup. This means that you will need to check both reports if you post videos on your site.

URL Inspection Tool Update

Along with adding a new report to Search Console, Google is updating the URL Inspection tool with the ability to check the video indexing status of a specific page.

After entering a URL into the inspection tool, if Google detects a video, you will see the following in the results:

  • Details such as video URL and thumbnail URL.
  • The page status indicates whether the video has been indexed or not.
    List of issues preventing the video from being indexed.

The Video Indexing report will be rolled out gradually over the next few months.
