New Features Possibly Coming to Google Search Console

A number of new features are likely on the way to Google Search Console, according to code discovered in the interface.

JR Oakes uncovered some unannounced features by digging through Google Search Console’s JavaScript code.

He posted what he found in the code on Twitter.

Based on his findings, the following reports may soon be added to Search Console.

Page Speed Report

A report dedicated to page speed looks like it’s on the way to Search Console.

Of course, Google offers other tools for measuring page speed, but that involves testing individual URLs one-by-one.

Perhaps this will be a report with all of a site’s URLs and their corresponding speed?

We’ll have to wait and see when the report goes live.

Oakes also discovered this information, which could be related to metrics included in the upcoming page speed report.

AMP Articles

This seems pretty self-explanatory–a report dedicated to the performance of AMP articles

Google Discover Performance

Site owners will soon be able to analyze how their pages are performing in Google Discover.

That’s the section that appears underneath the search box on Google’s home page on mobile devices.

According to JR Oakes, this is already live but does not contain any data yet.

Child-Direct Content Report

Search Console has added a report for pages that are tagged as being geared toward children.

JR Oakes says this report is already live.

Expanded Support for Structured Data/Rich Cards

According to Oakes’ findings, Search Console may soon be reporting on the following types of structured data:

Opt-Out of Google Search Sections

Using Search Console, site owners will be able to remove their page from Shopping, Flights, Hotels, and Local.

Those are all the features SEOs can look forward to seeing in Google Search Console.
