Daily Search Console reviews

Google Search Console will notify you if when unusual events occur on your website or app. These events include alerts that your website has been hacked or problems that Google had when crawling and indexing your website. If Google spot that your website violates any of Google’s search quality guidelines they will also email you.

Please note: It can take some time after verifying your site to start seeing data in Search Console reports, so add your website and verify it soon. Google will let you know when your data becomes available.
