I'm in the 2nd module of training and have one article written. Is it a waiting game or do I still need to do more before I get indexed?

There is no telling when Google will index your content. I have had 4 of 5 posts indexed and the one that hasn't was written months ago. I try not to think too much about it, although it is exciting, and keep putting more work out there. I figure eventually I will have enough ranking to make it to the top page.

No need to wait this long, you can use fetch as Google: Jay teaches about this in his webinars, but that tutorial should get it going within a few hours tops.

You just do it each time you post a new article.

Johanna,
Very good question your very first indexing can take a while because you are new to Google they do not know who you are just yet and the first one can take up to a month after that they come in quickly I have had mine indexed within 24 hours now that I have 3 months in :)

Hi Johanna,

Just be patient for the first indexing it can take up to a month, but normally within about a week.

It will happen in the mean time continue on in the training and adding more content to the site.

Best of luck to you,

Calvin

Did you have 'google fetch it' within the Google Search console? Should happen with a day or so after that.
