Ability to view list of indexed URLs, and perform actions on themSeptember 11, 2020 at 3:08pm
I occasionally find items in search results that do not belong. For example, two similar URL's that point to the same webpage, or URLs that we would not like a user to visit. I normally add rules to exclude those URLs. But, currently, there is not an easy way to view and check a list of all indexed URLs. It would be nice to have the ability to view a list of all URLs, with any relevant rules listed for each and perform actions on them, such as creating/editing rules.
For example, the table header could be something like: URL | Rules affecting this URL | Actions
A line item in the table could look like:
[checkbox] | http://www.example.com/foo | Boost 20% [Edit], Exclude [Edit] | [Exclude] [Boost]
In the above: If you click "Edit", a popup would appear allowing you to edit the corresponding rule. If you click "Exclude" or "Boost", a popup would appear which allows you to create a new rule.
Also, there could be a checkbox at the beginning of the row which allows you to select multiple rows and, for example, exclude them all with one command.

Thanks for adding the first feature suggestion!
The list of indexed URLs is available via the Preview section, and allows you to filter down or return specific fields as well.
I think there are three different problems you want to solve:
- Find if two or more URLs point to same webpage (either redirect or canonical)
- Remove record or add an exclude rule for records easily from Preview section.
- Check which records are affected by a boost rule or which boost rule effect which records?
Does that sound correct?
