I shortened permalinks per Google suggestion, and set up 301 redirects (changing year/month/postname to postname).  Works perfectly in the google search results, and the old tool fetches the site and individual posts perfectly.  But the new tool says "URL not found" when it's clearly there.  I resubmited a sitemap as well.  I think the new tool is not working correctly, please leave the old one up until it does.  Some of us are still using it and it works.

Hi Jeff,
 
Google doesn't make suggestions about url length?
 
Can you perhaps post a screenshot of what's happening, as it does sound unusual, the urls inspection tool normally fetches as well as the old one.

Hi.  I'm referring to url length regarding mobile readability.  But here are shots of the old tool working and the results on the new one.  Old one finds with the 301 redirect.  Found with old tool:

Then ping for same on new tool, with resulting error:

Wait, I can't drag images in to the forums?  new here

Google drive links:

Old tool finds post: 

New tool search for same:

Result from new tool:


Thanks!

Hi Jeff,

URL inspector works on the fully qualified domain, so add the https://example.com/blog/ bit in front of the slug and you should be able to see the details / test the live version etc.

Edit:  Sorry forgot to add. Google doesn't care about the length of a url in either mobile or desktop. In fact in mobile serps they are normally switched out for breadcrumb style ones anyway, so in a way, it matters even less.
