Google Search Console Offers Three New Sets of Googlebot Crawling Data
To help business firms comprehend how their sites are being crawled by Googlebot, the techno giant has updated certain features of Search Console.
The methodology through which Google crawls and lists the web pages is what we call mobile-first indexing. That is, instead of evaluating the desktop version of your webpage, Google now considers the mobile version of your webpage.
In simple words, your web pages are going to be crawled and listed based on their performance on a mobile phone versus a desktop computer. And now, over 50 percent of the Google listings are being indexed via mobile-first indexing.
These updates are available for the first time as part of Google’s mobile-first indexing project so that brands can figure out which version of Googlebot is primarily crawling their site.
All the websites, previously unknown to Google, has been recorded on mobile-first indexing, in effect from the 1st of July, 2019. Older websites have not yet made a shift to the mobile-first indexing but they would be once they are ready to be moved.
