Incoming New Features “Hacked” in the Google Search Console
For those unfamiliar named JR Oakes just quote his blog and immediately you understand who the deus ex machina codeseo.io, the blog that as a subtitle reads “hacker, coder, and developer in Technical SEO”.
And as in the best of intentions this time, too, he leaves his signature by posting a preview of a series of new features that are probably coming to GSC, as we said, going to find the features in the interface code.
Yes, because the “hacked” features relate to some additions and reports from GSC that are not yet fully active and that Google itself is testing “hidden”.
Based on its findings, the following reports could soon be added to Search Console and certainly its considerations are very useful for all the SEOs to understand in which direction Google is moving.
Page speed report
A real report dedicated to page speed seems to be close to activation in the Search Console.
As we can see in the screenshot below, JR Oakes writes that it is not certain that the code is related to the loading speed of the entire site, but certainly opens up an interesting hypothesis, if only in the tweet he writes:
“Speed (I can not wait for this):
/ search-console / speed
/ search-console / speed / drilldown
Not live yet.”
He’s right when he says that you can not wait any longer, because if until today Google offers other tools to measure the speed of the page (but this implies the verification of individual URLs one by one), most likely the new report will cover all URLs of a site and their speed.
Oakes discovered this information, which could be related to the metrics included in the next page speed report. We just have to wait and see when the report will be published.
For those who love AMP can not but rejoice because the screenshot below is too explanatory given that we speak specifically of a report dedicated to the performance of AMP articles
/ search-console / amp-articles
/ search-console / amp-articles / drilldown
Google Discover Performance
To Read: Why start using Google Ads in 2019?
According to JR Oakes, this report is already online but does not yet contain any data.
Performance on Google Discover:
/ search-console / performance / discover
Live (anyone with data?)
Report on contents dedicated to minors
It seems that Search Console has also added a report dedicated to pages marked as directed to children or children in general.
JR Oakes says this relationship is already online.

Extended support for structured data / advanced cards
According to the analyzed code Search Console could soon report in detail on the following types of structured data:
Structured Data / Rich Cards:
Courses, Events, How-To, Jobs, Movies, Recipes, Amp-Articles, Lenslets, Local Business, FAQs, Articles, Lists, Breadcrumbs, Jobs
Additional: Factcheck, Q / A, Product
Disable Google search sections
A very interesting feature could be to disable specific search sections, so, for example, site owners may remove their page from Shopping, Flights, Hotels and Local.
You can remove your site from: Shopping, Flights, Hotels, and Local (?).
/ search-console / opt-out
We too can not wait to try all these new features of the Google Search Console, and as always we will relate in each case.
