In this post, I will tell you how to use Google URL Inspection tool to check indexing issues in any webpage. Google Search Console has recently added a URL Inspection Tool in its beta version that is very useful. It lets you check a specific page on your website to see its Google indexed version. It mainly shows the issues related to the indexing of a web page. You can see whether a page is indexed and if it is indexed then what are some issues in it. You can see all this data right from the beta Google Search Console. And not just the indexing issues, you can also check the AMP and non AMP URLs as well and see the details about the different issues.

If you’ve been running your website for a very long time, then you should keep track of the old pages. Also, after publishing a new web page online, it’s important to ensure whether the page is indexed in Google Search. Previously, there was no such option in Google Search Console, but Now Google has added it. However, it is still in beta. And it is not available to every Search Console User. To use it, you just have to submit the URL of a web page and then it will show you the corresponding indexing details about that page.
