Did you know that the Search Console provides you with a certain amount of information that can help you get some information about how Google’s crawlers are indexing your site? Explanations …
The concept of an indexing budget defines the resources that the engine will set up to research (rewrite) a website.
However, it turns out that since 2020, Google has offered a (rather little known and used) report in its Search Console that contains a lot of information on this topic, some of which can really help you improve the way robots index your pages. . and by the same principle, to get better referencing and better visibility.

Video Transcript 215: “Estimating Your Budget for Indexing Using the Search Console”:
“Hello and welcome to this 215th Abundance video in which I wanted to talk to you about estimating your budget for indexing using the Search Console. So, estimate, it can be a very big word, but in any case the fact that you have some hints about the budget for indexing your site with the Search Console.
Where is it in the Search Console? It is located in the “Settings” section. You click on the settings at the bottom and you will have a certain amount of information in the Research and Presentation sections. In the presentation, we will already have an indexing robot that indexes the page. I remind you – I made a video about it – that if you have a “robot googlebot for computer” which is indicated, it means that your page is not yet in the mobile first index. These days it’s getting rarer, but we still see them. Normally, logically, if all goes well, you should have this indication here: an indexing robot that is a googlebot robot for smartphones with the date the page entered the mobile index first. We will also go – and we are more interested in that today – to the “Research” and “Research Statistics” sections, so I will click on “open report” on the right and there we will have a certain amount of statistical information about page indexing by google robots.
very rarely modified, to return code 304 instead of 200 as it will save you the indexing budget.
“By file type” is usually HTML. Mostly there is not much to say.
The “lens” statistics I was talking about. Here we have pretty standard statistics: 94% updates and 6% new page discoveries. Of course, on the site that has just been launched, there will be a percentage of detection that will be higher than in our country, but as time goes on, we will come to this type of statistics.
So, this is the conclusion of all this, it is: “do not hesitate to take a good look at this part of the Search Console, you can find quite interesting information there to better estimate the budget for indexing your site. Here are some videos I’ve already done on the topic, as usual and have a nice week See you soon on the new Abundance video! Thanks and goodbye 🙂 »
