  • “Crawling” = Google discovers your page exists
    “Indexing” = Google learns what your page is about, your page title
    “Serving” = Google responds to a person searching Google.com and delivers (“serves”) your website as a result, within a certain ranking.

  • Is Search Console a replacement or what else of Google analytics?

  • Advice please…

    I have a category 'page' that ranks on p1 of Google.

    It ranks for several search terms relating to the subject matter of the category and The Title of the Category

    All is good.

    GA and Search Console are positive.

    BUT

    When I check Search Console I can see a large number of impressions with virtually 0% CTR for a similar search term (in fact there are about 6) – but is not specific enough for people to click on the SERPS as neither the title nor the description match the user intent for this search term.

    This second 'supplemental' search term is not specifically on the category page – although one of the words is used by the supplemental term and also the main category.

    There are – in my opinion (but what does that matter) – better urls on the site for this supplemental term – and when searching directly on Google for this search term, another url is displayed (the 'correct' one)

    Why is this 'incorrect' search term getting many impressions every day?

    I assume that it is happening for signed-in users as I cannot replicate that url coming up in the SERPS when I search.

    It is predominately but not exclusively UK based users.

    Interestingly, Google has chosen to use the Category Name in the SERPS for at least one search term for this category page (Bing has chosen the actual Category Page Title).

    I understand that non-relevant search queries may show up on a 'page' displayed in the search console – but why does it happen when there is a better and more relevant page on the website?

    The other frustrating this is that Google displays a particular search term as the 'Title' in the SERPS – I have tried adding the 'supplemental' search term, but Google doesn't display it.

    Suggestions anyone?

  • Daniel, great to see you.. as always

  • Thank you for this short video.
    Will follow the whole series 😍

  • how come I have to wait a whole day to see what google bot would see?? I"m not trying to get the actual bot to crawl the site, simply preview what it would see when it does crawl so I can modify it properly before submitting it for the actual search.. There should've been a separate tool for that.
