2 days ago, Google has announced a new feature in the beta Google search console that enables digital marketers to check a particular URL on the website to see the status of how Google searches see that URL. Known as a URL inspection tool, this tool offers a detailed index, crawl and serving information about your pages, directly from the Google index.

All you need to do enter a URL that you own to learn the last crawl date and status, any crawling or indexing errors and the canonical URL for that specific page. If your page was successfully indexed, you can find the information and status about any enhancements, such as linked AMP version or rich results like Recipes and Jobs. On the other hand, if your page is not indexed, using this tool you can learn why.

However, the new Search Console is still beta, and it's adding features and reports. Well, there is also a possibility that you won't be able to see it currently. But, don't get panic, the Google is still rolling out it, so wait until they finish it. You can also visit the Google help page for a complete guide on the URL inspection tool to gain a better understanding of the feature.
