Managing your website with Google Search Console Day to dayRelax — Search Console will email you if any unusual events occur with your properties. 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, so add your site and verify it soon. We’ll let you know when your data becomes available.


Every month or so, take a look at your Search Console dashboard; the dashboard 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.
