  • If you have already setup a service account for Google Indexing API, you have nothing to do. SEOPress will automatically use the same service account added to SEO, Instant Indexing, Settings tab.
  • If you have not setup a service account, please follow this guide.

Now edit a content (must be already published and crawled by Google otherwise you will have no details from Search Console).

Go to the Content Analysis feature, Inspect URL tab and run the audit. Wait a few seconds to get the report.
