Google Search Console Low Quality Page Report Not Happening

Wouldn't it be nice if Google told you which pages on your site are low quality and then you had an action list of pages that need more love and attention from you? Well, that isn't going to happen any time soon. In fact, I doubt we would see it ever.

John Mueller from Google addressed the question at about 20 minutes into the hangout on Friday where the question was "Search Console offers some great information about links and 404s. Is there any plan to add a list of pages that can be considered low quality as well?"

John responded that there are "no plans" for such a report and he doesn't see how useful it would be for the "average webmaster."

Here is the video embed at the start time:


That’s an interesting idea. I am not aware of any such plans.

At least from my side I don’t think that it is something the Search Console team is working on at the moment. I don’t know if that would be something we would even add from a quality point of view.

I do agree that sometimes it would be useful to have a bit more information about what Google’s algorithms consider to be quality but I don’t know if a list of low quality pages would be that useful for the average webmaster.
