Google drops the Content Keywords feature from Google Search Console
It is official. After hinting at removing the Google content keywords report from Google Search Console, Google did it.
Google has just removed another feature from the Google Search Console: the content keywords report, one of the earliest features found in the Google Search Console when it was first built.
Google said when the tool first launched, this report was the “only way to see what Googlebot found when it crawled a website.” Now, you have features like Search Analytics and Fetch, and others. Google also said “users were often confused about the keywords listed in content keywords.”
So Google decided to remove the feature for those reasons. This is not a surprising move; we heard Google was looking to remove it back in May.
Google also recently dropped the Sitelinks demotion feature from Google Search Console the other week.
