Google worked for months to ensure that search console users pay attention to issues.

Now, You will not see group URLs in Google Search Console.

Earlier, the Google search console was showing three URL classifications such as:

  • Valid
  • Warning
  • Error.

Now you will only see Two URL classifications such as:

  • Valid
  • Invalid

In Google Search Console, Valid means your content has some critical issue, and valid means your content does not have any issue.

Google has explained how this migration will impact reports.
