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!

Kristina

I think sometimes the platform is abit slow also personally

Thank you, Damien. I have not heard that before.

Sometimes it takes a while.

That seems to be the case, Yvonne. One things for sure I keep learning with these hiccups that occur. 🙂

It will happen in time.

Thank you. I hope you have a good week.

Thank you

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.

Thank you I will try that!

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
phil

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

Thanks!

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?

Hi good people of WA! I published an article yesterday to my site and noticed that it does not show on my Home page first. I cleared the cache in my site manager but no change.

Kristina, I learned a few things from your post! You are right! This is how we all learn!

Jeff

Thanks for your support, Jeff!

You're always welcome, Kristina!

Jeff

Happy SatSu, my friend.

Likewise, Kristina! 😎👍

Better late than never, Jeff! Lol. Hope all is well with you. : )

~ Kristina

Yes, indeed, Kristina! Things are OK with me--that's it! I hope you are doing well too!

Jeff

Doing well too, Jeff! Not able to get to as much of my WA lately as I would like. I am choosing to trust in divine timing.

Kristina

That sounds GREAT, Kristina! It is certainly good to hear from you!

Jeff

Check your menu, is your home page on it? Remember to save menu when making changes.

Hey Kristina,

Sounds like you may have setup your website to display the oldest post first. If so, here's how you can make the adjustment to newest first: https://wordpress.com/support/show-your-posts-in-chronological-order/

Or... you may have used a plugin to do this. Example: Post Types Order by Nsp Code. See screen print below...

If you used a plugin, simply deactivating and deleting that plugin may resolve your issue.

Hope you find this helpful.

I will check this out. thank you!!

how do i find the wordpress site page you show? i am using the WA site manager and i don't see the settings you show

The screen print is the plugin's image. If you search for the plugin I mentioned initially, you will see that as their graphic. I provided a screen print of their graphic so you would know the EXACT plugin that I was referring to.

Sorry if this cause you confusion. That was not my intention.

No worries. I have a lot to learn. :)

the order of your posts will be down to your theme ...
if you visit your site and press ctrl+f5 to refresh your browsers cache you will see what others see when visiting your site...
is the order of your posts definitely oldest first or is there a 'sticky' post ( you can check this by going to hte post menu and clicking on quick edit and check whether the sticky box is ticked)
i hope you manage to find it
phil
you can go through your theme options by clicking on appearance>>customize and seeing if there is a post order option in there...
or jump on google and search for your theme and look through hte documentation...

will do, phil. very helpful. thank you!

looks like the site is set for latest posts to show first. i'll look deeper. it will help me learn. :)
thank you

what's your url

Hi
Can you check that the post is not in draft or scheduled?

I wil check. Thank you!

I says published on 5/18 2, days ago. Nothing about draft or scheduled. Hmm.
