How to interpret example videos
When your site has abusive experience violations, the Abusive Experience Report may include videos of those experiences as they appeared on your site (learn more). These videos are visually annotated to help you find and fix violations.
Blue outline: A blue outline around a page element indicates that the element has received focus, or is active. This is the part of the page (for example, the main window, a menu selection, or a button) that was navigated to during your site’s review; it may have been clicked, arrived at by tabbing or tapping, or in some other way. The blue outline helps you follow the narrative of your site’s review.
Right-hand panel: When a separate tab or window opens on your site, it's displayed in the right-hand side of your video, adjacent to the main web page. For example, if clicking a menu item opens a pop-under page that’s hidden from view, that pop-under is shown in the right-hand panel. Or if clicking a button on the page opens a new tab, that tab is shown in the right-hand panel. As more separate windows or tabs open, the previous ones move down the right-hand panel, and the newest one shows up at the top, with a blue outline. The side panel makes it easier for you to see the abusive activity on your site. Additional tabs and windows are indicated with counter icons (see below).
Click target: Blue concentric circles are displayed on the video where a click (desktop) or tap (mobile) takes place.
Device icons: Icons displayed on the lower left-hand corner indicate the type of experience review. If the review is of desktop experiences, you'll see this icon: . iIf the review is of mobile experiences, you'll see this icon: .
Counter icons: When additional windows and tabs are opened, the right hand panel shows counter icons on the bottom. For example indicates that 6 additional windows or tabs have opened, and indicates that 10 or more additional tabs have opened.
