Type Description
Discovered – currently not indexed The page was found by Google, but not crawled yet. Typically, Google tried to crawl the URL but the site was overloaded; therefore Google had to reschedule the crawl. This is why the last crawl date is empty on the report.
Crawled - currently not indexed The page was crawled by Google, but not indexed. It may or may not be indexed in the future; no need to resubmit this URL for crawling.
Alternative page with proper canonical tag This page is a duplicate of a page that Google recognizes as canonical. This page correctly points to the canonical page, so there is nothing for you to do.
Duplicate without user-selected canonical This page has duplicates, none of which is marked canonical. We think this page is not the canonical one. You should explicitly mark the canonical for this page. Inspecting this URL should show the Google-selected canonical URL.
Page with redirect The URL is a redirect, and therefore was not added to the index.
Excluded by ‘noindex’ tag
Soft 404 This page returned a 404 error when requested.
Duplicate, submitted URL not selected as canonical
