As you know, Google is expanding the release of their beta Google Search Console reports. And although we shared many screen shots I wanted to share even more now that more people are sharing them online. Also, there is a lot of talk about “Indexed, low interest” filter in the reports.
Let’s start with the “Indexed, low interest” filter where former Googler Pierre Far said on Twitter that SEOs should stop freaking out about it and read the help document to understand what it is.

The tremor of a thousand SEOs freaking out about indexed low interest. Read the help docs peeps; it explains it well.

The Indexed, low interest filter shows you “the page was indexed, but appears very rarely in Search results. It might be omitted from other Search Console reports.” That is it, simple – nothing to get too nuts over.
Now for the screen shots:

Have pages indexed, but not being submitted in sitemaps? The new Index Coverage report will surface these for you. No export yet, though. pic.twitter.com/wcGFeFMqYV

If Google finds duplicate pages & no canonical tags, it will choose one as the canonical url. It’s not always right. These will be surfaced. pic.twitter.com/KmIHNiVDlb

Probably the most interesting (to me anyway) is the indexed, low interest report. The urls rarely appear in Search. *Could* be low quality. pic.twitter.com/C9o6JEFCmD

Or how about pages submitted, but noindexed? These will also be surfaced in the new Index Coverage report. Dig in & make changes, if needed. pic.twitter.com/noBDhQ8U1c

And many have asked for this for a LONG TIME. The new Index Coverage report will surface “submitted and indexed” urls. Hopefully with export pic.twitter.com/GTeKa60Fv7
