Google has announced a new feature in the new Google Search Console that allows you to check a specific URL on your website to see the status of that URL in google index.

On other hand we can say that URL Inspection tool provides detailed crawl, index, and serving information about your pages, directly from the Google index. So Search becomes more transparent.

It will show you the

  •  Last crawl date
  •  Status of that last crawl
  •  Any crawling or indexing errors
  •  Canonical URL for that page
  •  If the page was successfully indexed
  •  Any AMP errors
  •  Structured data errors
  •  Rich results like Recipes and Jobs
  •  Indexing issues.

Here are screen shots:

If a page isn’t indexed, you can learn why. The new report will have information about noindex robots meta tags and Google’s canonical URL for the page.
