The new HTTPS report in Google Search Console

September 14, 2022

Last year, Google released the Page Experience report in Search Console to help site owners understand and fix issues affecting how Google evaluates the page experience for their site. One of the common requests Google received was to provide more information regarding the HTTPS status of the site and make it easier to understand which pages are not served over HTTPS, and why not.

To address this request, Google is gradually rolling out the HTTPS report in Search Console over the next few months. The report lists the issues that prevent pages from being served as HTTPS, along with sample URLs. As a reminder, page experience is a set of signals that measure how users perceive the experience of interacting with a web page beyond its pure informational value, both on mobile and desktop devices. It includes Core Web Vitals, which is a set of metrics that measure real-world user experience for loading performance, interactivity, and visual stability of the page, along with signals for mobile friendliness, intrusive interstitials, and HTTPS. The HTTPS component ensures the safety and security of users on the web.

The Google Search Console team has released a new report to help webmasters troubleshoot HTTPS issues. The report provides information on what resources are blocked by browsers when loading HTTPS pages, as well as guidance on how to fix these issues.

If you have any questions or concerns about the new report, you can reach out to the Google Search Central Community or on Twitter.
