We all want our content to get indexed into Google as fast as possible, right? Well when you click the “Publish” button in WordPress it normally takes Google a few days before they index your content, especially when your website is new. But wouldn’t you like to know how you can manually get Google to index your content within hours instead of days?
EASY STEP BY STEP PROCESS
This easy process are for those who have already set up and registered their website in Google Webmaster Tools, which is now called Google Search Console GSC. Both names are interchangeable. Each of the following 5 steps are illustrated by pictures and a brief description.
STEP 1: COPY YOUR DOMAIN URL
As seen in the image above, I am copying my entire domain URL. It does not matter if you copy that last forward slash /. This is basically the page or post title.
NEXT UP = Using Google Search Console
I also am noticing all my other requested indexing have disappeared from the newer GWT search console. Does this mean I need to re-index all my posts? thanks ahead.
For example the first URL Path says
It should be
Never have Google fetch a URL slug with the / mark in it. This will cause a redirect all the time.
I also went into analytics and set the newer URL, the HTTPS version as my default address.
When I asked support what to do they told me to do things we were not trained to do here, at WA.
I know there are many ways to do the same exact thing but it is very confusing for someone like myself. The reason I love it here is its simplicity in directions.
Please let me know what I'm missing and if this support ticket is something I need to follow up on and where do I get the training to do it. Thanks!!
This is what support told me to do:
If you type https in the search bar above there are 3 training videos on https. One training by Jay explains how to setup your https website on Google Webmaster Tools. The link is below. Adding your HTTPS to Google Webmaster Tools Did you remember to remove the / marks from the content you are trying to index? These / marks will cause redirect problems if you try indexing links that have them.
It is now working.
Thank you for the above training, I will definitely watch it.
