Google introduce Index status for webmaster!Posted by on July 26, 2012 10:32 AM
Google Webmaster Tools has launched a new feature – Index Status which will present webmasters with a chart showing the number of indexed pages for a site during the past year. The new feature is available under the Health menu in Webmaster Tools.
Google says that this count is accurate (unlike the site: search operator) and is post-canonicalization.
There is also an ‘Advanced’ tab added to the new feature. This allows you to dig into the data deeper. The advanced section shows totals of indexed pages, number of pages crawled, and the pages blocked by robots.txt (and hence remain uncrawled), and the number of pages Google did not include.
