Testing Site With Google Search Console Without Allowing It To Be Publicly Listed
We are in a process of redesign, and would like to test a way google sees our website, but we would not like it to be indexed it at this point.
We have a separate subdomain for development, but if we disallow scraping in robots.txt, we can't do any tesing, because google crawlers will not scrape any testing pages.
Is there a way to run some tests via google webmasters console without allowing site to be indexed publicly?
