JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

And from outpoint of view usually the number of indexed URLs doesn’t matter so mu chit’s better to focus more on the impressions than the index URL accounts so the sitemaps count is usually better than the index status report in the sense that the sitemaps count tells you of the URLs that you specified which ones are indexed so the number wise at least an index status reports includes things like duplicate content or the complicated navigation structure that you might have on your website so that’s still better than just doing a site colon query in the search results but it’s not really what you want to focus on and even better than that is looking at the impressions and thinking about which URLs are actually being shown in the search results and am i covering the range of the search results that I think my site should be covering another big topic in search console that webmaster soften don’t think about and that people often don’t think about when they’resetting up a new website is urgent URL removal so maybe you accidentally index something that was actually private data and you need to get that removed as quickly as possible and then by having your site verified you can do that essentially as fast as we could if you kind of contacted us with like a legal document that you got from court saying you need to google need to remove this page from the search results so this is something you can do as quickly as we can essentially if you have your site verified as so the thing to keep in mind here is that this hides the URL from the search results it doesn’t remove them from the index so they’re essentially still index you might still see this data in search console but they’re not shown in the search results which is kind of what you’re trying to do that thing to kind of keep in mind here is that this tool covers all of the different variations for the common variations HTTP HTTPS that belt non depth up so it’s not a fix for canonicalization if you use it for trying to take out the HTTP version after a site move then you’re going to take out with HTTP and HTTPS which is almost certainly not what you want to do we recommend using this only for urgent issues not for site maintenance so if you like take a page out of your sight and you just want Google to kind of reflect that over time then that will drop out automatically as we recall and we index those pages you don’t need to use this tool the verified version so if you have their site verified is faster you have their site verified is faster and you can do directory sub-domain removals as well.
