Google Search Console – New Reports for Special Announcements Markup

Following a new way for sites to highlight COVID-19 announcements on Google Search, Google Search Console (GSC) now offers a new report for sites that have implemented SpecialAnnouncement structured data. The report includes warning, errors and a way to validate fixes. If the errors are fixed this validation process will automatically trigger a Google recrawl of your affected pages.
