Google Moving

Google has added two new features to the change of address tool in Google Search Console. The one helps you validate your move with redirect validation. The other feature reminds you, or someone else with Search Console access, that the site is moving.

The two new features as worded by Google:

  • Redirect validation for top 5 URLs of the moving domain.
  • Reminders on top of both the moving domain and the destination domain.

Here is a screen shot showing off the redirect validation feature:

Glad Google is adding some features here.
