Hi WA!
I published an article on the 18th and it is not indexed… yet. Any ideas why this might be?

Thank you for your time and help!

Hey Kristina,

Chances are, Google has indexed your post. However, to determine that you can Google search the following:
site:[add-your-domain-name-here]

Then, if you do not see it listed in the pages of search results that you will be offered... then you can say it is definitely not indexed.

Hope you find this helpful.

have you told google about it
are there links (internal and extrernal ) in the post.
is it marked no index
is it in your sitemap
have you requested feedback or comments on it from here
i tend to find that after submitting the site map and using the url inspection for each post it will be indexed within 24 hours...
have you checked google with the
site:[yourdomain] to see if it is there
good luck

Thanks for your help. I have googled but it’s not online yet. I used my article url to search and it went to my site but showed “oops not found”. I’ll look in to your recs.

if it says oops not found then it is not on your site..
you need to sort this out before google can find it...
going directly to your site url should find it ..
so check in your back office and make sure there is nothing strange going on there..
make sure it is published...goto posts and click on quick edit and see that it says published..

it may be to be published on a schedule...
once you can find it by going to your url directly then google will find it...
good luck

Hi

You can always request indexing, but I'd give it more time. Have you submitted a sitemap?

No I don’t even know what that is. Lol. I’ll check that out. Thanks!

Thank you! That’s my next task. I was advised to clear my browser and that seemed to do the trick. I searched on Google for the article in question and I could easily find it there. This must mean it has been indexed. Yes?
