Google has announced a “URL inspection tool” in the beta form of Google Search Console.

This tool mainly provides insight into a specific page URL on how Google indexed that version of that a specific page.

Google said it “provides detailed crawl, index, and serving information about your pages, directly from the Google index.”

About the URL Inspection tool

The URL Inspection tool offers information about Google’s indexed version of a specific page. The information includes AMP errors, structured data errors, and indexing issues.

Using the URL Inspection tool

To inspect a URL in your property: Enter the complete URL in the search bar at the top of any page in Search Console.

A few notes:
  • The URL must be in the current property: You must switch properties to inspect a URL in another property.
  • AMP vs non-AMP URLs: You can inspect both AMP and non-AMP URLs. In both cases, the tool provides information about the corresponding AMP and non-AMP version of the page.
  • Alternate page versions: If the page has alternate versions, for example, if it uses hreflang to point to alternate language versions, or if you (or Google) decide that there are alternate/duplicate versions of the page, the tool also deliver information about the canonical version.
Here are the screenshots:

Enter a URL that you own to learn the last crawl date and status, any crawling or indexing errors, and the canonical URL for that page.
