Actually. This Is A Search Console Question. Can Anyone Offer AdviceHelp?

Last Update: May 10, 2021

I wanted to present this as a question to the community but as we cannot attach images to questions (i really think this should be incorportated by the way) I needed to do it as a blog.

This image has been taken from my Google Search Console... and I was wondering why my coverage has dramatically dropped... does anyone know what this means exactly?

As you can see from the photo.. there are 387 valid pages but none of them have errors. I have always done what I have done with no issues in the past.. but last month this started to happen at it does not seem to be stopping...

Is this considered an emergency? Do I need to do anything?

Any Clues? Advice? Help?

Thanks

Chris

You may just be experiencing an adjustment from search engines. There may not be anything wrong.

Check your "Mobile Usability" farther down in the menu under "Experience." Has it been increasing as the coverage is decreasing?

That happened to my site as it started to age. The coverage that had gone up initially started to drop as the mobile usability went up.

Seeing how Google is starting to put more emphasis on mobile, I took it as a good sign that my site is getting more indexing for mobile-first.

There are at least two possibilities. This may happen if you have decided to remove pictures or some other elements from the site map. I have seen this when I did this once. In this case it will stabilize at some point.

The other is that for unknown reasons the site is being deindexed in search engines. This happened to me twice, once in Google and once in Bing. This means it will continue. In this case, it would be necessary to inform them and ask them to do something.

Thanks Buddy.. long time to speak to you... I hope you are doing fine and keeping well

I will look into your assessment here for sure.

On saying that... I have 2 other websites and they are showing the same kind of behavior.... with that maybe it is something to do with Google?

Im not sure!!

Hey Chris I am fine, too many sites make life busy.

It seems it is indeed with Google. Do the usual in Google site:sitename(dot)com. You will be able to see if all published posts are there. If not, then this is surely a problem. Let us know, this can happen to anybody. Google is a schizophrenic beast.
