Google Search Analytics API makes available resource sets
Google opened access to resource sets in the Search Console by means of the Search Analytics API. Mike Sullivan from the United States was the first one noticed this innovation.
Google launched a new feature "Resource Kits" in the Search Console in May this year. It allows you to connect up to 200 resources of any type (either the web pages or applications) into a sole group and receive all the data on clicks and impressions in a single report.
From now on the resource kits are also available through the Search Analytics API.
Google: webpage redirect to the home page is treated as soft 404
If your website has 301 redirect set up for all pages to the homepage, then Google will treat those redirects as a "soft" 404 error. This was stated by the search department representative, John Mueller during a regular video-meeting for webmasters.
Therefore, Google will ignore this redirection, and they will not transfer PageRank.
