Managing your website with Search Console

Day to day

Relax — After you’ve signed up for Search Console, you’ll receive email if any unusual events occur with your website. Unusual events include indications that your website has been hacked or problems that Google had when crawling or indexing your site. We will also email you if we detect that your site violates any of Google’s search quality guidelines.

Note: It can take some time after verifying your site to start seeing data in Search Console reports; we’ll let you know when your data becomes available.


Every month or so, take a look at your Search Console status; the status page is the simplest way to get a quick health check on your site:

  • Make sure that you aren’t experiencing an increase in errors for your site.
  • Check that you don’t have any unusual dips in your click counts. Note that a weekly rhythm of weekend dips, or dips or spikes over holidays, is normal.
If you have questions about how to read a report, click the help button Help at the top of the page to learn more. See a list of our reports and what they’re used for.
