Google announces that they have updated the Android App-Indexing Crawl Errors Report in the Google Search Console; after the report that crawl errors for apps continues.
The company said that ‘updating and simplifying the app crawl error types we show in Search Console’. They further states that you’ll now see three error types in the App Crawl Status report:
Package Not Found (Unchanged)
URI Unsupported (Unchanged)
Removed From Index (New)
Google has reset the data in the report, so you’ll see updated stats for these three error types since December 11.
Quote From the Report:
“These are app pages that don’t meet our technical guidelines — for example, users get redirected to the home page or the app crashes when the user attempts to open the deep link.
To fix this, check the example URIs both in Fetch as Google and on an actual device, and make sure your app doesn’t crash on opening, the deep pages don’t redirect to the homepage, and the content is equivalent. Once you fix the issues and we recrawl your app pages, these deep links from Google search to your app will be reexamined.”
