Crawl Statistics Report The Crawl Statistics Report is a good place to see how many files are indexed on your site. It can be found in the settings Index Statistics Report When you open the report you can see the index statistics by file type. So its worth checking regularly.

However Google recently announced that dynamic rendering of sites using client-side rendering is not a recommended long-term solution. How to explain this to developers Our site currently uses client-side rendering which is a bit of a challenge for Google and other search engines. We need to switch to Googles recommended option for server-side rendering for static rendering with hydration. We recommend discussing recommended solutions directly with the developer. Redirects although useful for creating redirects are not recommended because of their.
