The Google Webmaster Tools Index Status feature reports how many pages on your site are indexed by Google. In the past, we didn’t show index status data for HTTPS websites independently, but rather we included everything in the HTTP site’s report. In the last months, we’ve heard from you that you’d like to use Webmaster Tools to track your indexed URLs for sections of your website, including the parts that use HTTPS.

We’ve seen that nearly 10% of all URLs already use a secure connection to transfer data via HTTPS, and we hope to see more webmasters move their websites from HTTP to HTTPS in the future. We’re happy to announce a refinement in the way your site’s index status data is displayed in Webmaster Tools: the Index Status feature now tracks your site’s indexed URLs for each protocol (HTTP and HTTPS) as well as for verified subdirectories.GWT Now Shows More Detail Over Site Variations [googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com]

2 steps forward 3 steps back!

So a site that has 100 subdomains now has to verify every subdomain and individually monitor the index status of each - great in some respects if youve got the man power to do it.

However, previously all the index data was grouped under the route domain making it very easy to see a complete site index total, now gone - A big loss.
