Google Fetch

Last Update: December 05, 2017

Good Evening, quick question for the Google experts in the class. When I fetch my website home page (as a Post) it comes back as a redirect. When I switch it from a Post to a Page, it doesn't redirect. Why is this happening and the consequences? I understand I could change my home page to a Page, but then home page does not appear on my AMP page, only Posts appear, not Pages. How's that for a puzzler? Were you able to follow?

Thanks again,

Mike

Google takes its own time and decision in crawling the fetches we put up. I have more than ten posts piled up uncrawled.

Normally, only post titles are shown as far as I know. We may want to see more information from experienced members in the field.

If it's redirecting to the correct page it should be fine. If you Google 'fetch as Google redirect' you will have more answers. Good luck!

Hi Mike,

Are you leaving the field blank to fetch the homepage?

Below the space for URL, it says, "Leave URL blank to fetch the homepage. Requests may take a few minutes to process."

I had a redirect once upon a time until I read this little direction...

For all other pages, just add the tail end of the URL to fetch.

Hello, yes sir left blank after the URL in both cases and it redirects on the Post and not the Page version of my home page. Thanks for trying. Take care.
