    Lately, Google Search Console has been in the news all for the wrong reasons, right from disabled and broken features to temporarily not functioning features. However, Mueller has touched upon them in the recent Google search central live on the 18th of December 2020.

    Some of the issues are

    • Disavow Tool on Domain Properties

    The New Disavow tool, which was launched a month ago, has an issue when verified for a domain property. You can see below a screenshot of a message that “Domain properties are not supported at this time.”

    John Mueller has confirmed that the Google Search Console team is aware of the domain properties issue, and he believes fixing it will be on the team’s priority. He also said that submitting disavows every day, including submitting several times in a day, does not have a substantial effect as one would expect.

    • Request Indexing Tool

    Request indexing tool has been out of action for more than two months, but there are no clear signs when the feature is back for use.

    Even John commented that we would have to wait and watch. Many people want the request indexing tool back, and the Search Console team is working on it to bring it back before the year ends; however, the chances of meeting the deadline are getting slimmer as the year nearing its end.

    Here is the video where John discussed the topic

    • Issue Validation
