How to Get Your Content Indexed in Google within Hours
STEP 4: USING URL INSPECTION WHICH USED TO BE FETCH AS GOOGLE
You may have heard the term "Fetch as Google" when it came to getting your content indexed. This is old terminology. It is now called "URL Inspection" and it does pretty much the same thing. It fetches or grabs the content you want indexed off of your website.
In the image above, after clicking on URL Inspection, you will have an empty bar appear for you to paste in the URL of the page or post you want to get indexed. For the first time, yours will look different and not have other URLs appear under it. I have indexed many posts already.
Paste in your URL, similar to the screen in the image above. Google will then search your website and grab the information of that URL and display its findings as seen in the below image. NOTE: Because this page I am indexing is already indexed, your screen will say URL Is Not On Google with a dark gray circle and white X and like mine it will say REQUEST INDEXING
NEXT UP = Request Indexing and Verification
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.
