There are some changes to how Google is showing some of the issues within Google Search Console for the AMP enhancement report. According to Google, they will be combining some over-specific issue types into fewer generalized issue types within the report in an effort designed to separate issues into “more manageable groups” for webmasters.
The AMP enhancement report helps you fix errors that prevent your AMP pages from appearing in Google Search results with AMP-specific features.
Google said they are combining “some over-specific issue types into fewer generalized issue types.” As an example, old specific issues that were for (a) “The attribute ‘title’ in tag ‘a’ is set to ‘cat’, which is incorrect” or (b) “The attribute ‘title’ in tag ‘a’ is set to ‘dog’, which is incorrect” would be grouped into this single generic error “The attribute ‘title’ in tag ‘a’ is incorrect.”
Once the migration of consolidation of errors is complete, you “will see an increase in generic issue types with a corresponding decrease in the specific issue types that were combined into the general type,” Google said. Don’t worry though, as Google is grouping issues into a more generic category. This doesn’t always mean you have more errors.
So, why is Google making this change? Google said “this will simplify issue types into more manageable groups for you.”
During this migration of the data, you won’t be able to verify issues as fixed in Google Search Console, said Google. Google will also update historical data for the prior three months of data, beginning in September.
