Google’s Search Console is a great tool to help you understand how your website performs on Google. If your content is showing up in Google Search Console with the message “Submitted URL has crawl issue” you need to fix it.
To do this, head over to the Google Search Console and click on the “Coverage” (inside index).
You will see a list of all pages linked from your domain and the errors Google search console shows. Select “Submitted URL has crawl issue” and you should be able to find out how many pages are impacted.

How to Fix Your Site Crawl Issue:
1) Check the crawl errors
This is where you’ll get information about what’s causing the issue. The most common cause of crawl issues is when the URL doesn’t resolve correctly. This happens because the server is sending too many requests to the same page. To check which URLs are getting more than they can handle, visit the Google Search Console, and look under the Crawlers section.
2) Remove duplicate content
You may have found some duplicates on your site that aren’t being served by your hosting provider. These are called duplicate content problems. Duplicate content problems can happen for many reasons, including but not limited to:
A page that is serving two different versions of the same content (for example, a news article that was originally published on a blog and then updated into a new version).
3) Update your meta tags.
Meta tags are used to tell search engines what information is important to display on a web page. They also help determine whether a page is safe for human eyes and whether it should rank higher.
When using the Google Search Console, you’ll be able to view the meta tags that appear on every page. In addition to seeing your meta tags, you’ll also see the number of times each tag appears on a specific page. For example, if I’m viewing my site on the desktop and I see that my meta tags appear on every page (which would make me think that my site is safe), then I know that I’ve made changes to my site that are making it easier for search engines to index my site.
4) Add more relevant content.
There are several ways you can add more content to your site. One way is by creating a landing page for your site or by adding a video to your site. Another option is to create an interactive feature that shows off some of your best content. Finally, you could add additional content to your site like a widget or a paragraph.
5) Optimize your HTML.
HTML is the language that your site uses to build its pages. It’s the code that tells search engines how to interpret what you’ve written. If you haven’t optimized your HTML before, we recommend checking out our post How to Improve Your Website’s HTML.
6) Use HTTPS Everywhere.
It’s very easy to forget to enable HTTPS everywhere on your website. When you’re done optimizing your HTML, ensure that your sites are configured to redirect visitors to HTTPS whenever possible automatically.
