Would You Like To Compare Your Sites In Google Search Console? Let Google Know.
Google wants your feedback on improving the Google Search Console, specifically about combining sites.
Google posted a survey asking webmasters if they’d like to see the Google Search Console, formerly Google Webmaster Tools, enable you to combine your sites in order to compare the data.
Google gave two examples of how this might work:
(A) To view a combined Search Analytics report that includes different URL versions of your site (http and https).
(B) To view a combined Search Analytics report that includes different subdomains (mobile and international subdomains).
But it can be used for other purposes, as you can imagine.
The survey asks, “if Search Console allowed you to group together sites to view a combined report, would you use it?”
The answers include:
- Yes, I’d use it to combine different URL versions of my site (i.e. https/http and www/non-www)
- Yes, I’d use it to track my subdomains (i.e. desktop/mobile sites and international subdomains)
- Yes, I’d use it to track my entire brand (i.e. all subdomains and apps)
