After a few weeks of Google not indexing my content, Google Search Console is now showing my articles indexing again, but I can't find any of the recent ones in search results and I haven't had confirmation emails from WA about my content indexing in a month.

Any ideas? I'm still relatively new to this and trying to understand the process.

Hi Emma,

Normally things are ok except for the odd mishap here or there. During update rollouts, this kind of stuff happens then the worse is when a core update occurs where it can knock some for six and make others elated.

As I say even when there are no issues no one including GSC or GA can guarantee 100% accuracy the main reason being is that a moving situation is difficult to pin down so their analytics are not hand on heart completely accurate.

Having said all that Indexing was working fine all year until the updates started about a month ago. We still await the major core update!!

Take care,

R.

You are most welcome Emma, fingers crossed indeed their last core update affected me as it did many others by knocking my hard-earned fledgeling traffic by half. Determined that they are not going to do this again as it has taken me 3 months (really two) on month to let everything settle down before figuring out the best direction to go. As we stand have retrieved it all and ahead by a 1/4 so you can imagine why I am such an avid proponent of keeping up with what they do haha

Take care,

R.
