Before we start learning how to index a new website and web pages on Google, let’s learn what is Google indexing and the reasons why Google does not crawl and index your web pages. These are very important as you can get rid of future Google updates and secure your content.

What is Google Indexing and How does Google Index web pages?

Site crawling and indexing is a complicated process that search engines used to get information on the internet. If you search your Twitter handle on Google, you will find your Twitter profile with the title of your name. Same for other information such as Image search.

Basically, before indexing a website, search engines must crawl the website. Before crawling a website, search engines should be able to follow the link.

There are many cases, webmasters don’t want search engines to follow a link. So in those cases, search engines are not able to index the web page and rank it on SERPs.

Each search engines use programs called web spiders/web crawlers (also known as search engine bots) to crawl a web page. The famous Google web crawler is known as the Googlebot which crawls the content all around the Internet and helps to gather useful information.

For the Bing search engine, it’s Bingbot. Yahoo search engine gathers web results from Bing. So Bingbot contributes to Bing and Yahoo search engines to add new content. Baidu uses a web spider called Baidubot. Yandex search engine uses Yandexspider to find new content for Yandex web index.

Why Does Google Not Index Your Web Pages?

There are many reasons Google does not index your web pages. As you already know, web indexing is the three-step of search engine ranking.

First Googlebot follows the link (URL) and crawls the web page to find useful information and then makes an index on Google databases.

When a person searches something on Google, Google will use different factors (famously known as Google ranking factors) and list the result within a few milliseconds.

You can find whether Google has already indexed your website and web pages easily, simply doing a site index search. Site:pitiya.com

9 Reasons why Google doesn’t index your web pages

You are not updating your blog regularly

This is one of the top reasons why Google doesn’t index your web pages. If you don’t add new content and update older posts, how do you convince Google that your blog is not dead? Still, live?

The easiest way for Google to index your web pages every day is to update your blog. You don’t need to add more posts every day. Instead, update older posts. Add up-to-date content, information, and promote it on social networks using a tool like ContentStudio. So you will not only convince Google that you are an active blogger, but also drive some extra traffic.

I have found that by updating older content, you can increase the search engine ranking of web pages. The reason? Google’s content fresh factor.

When updating existing blog posts, don’t forget to follow these tactics as well.

  • Make sure your content is on the topic: Sometimes your post title may mislead readers. So, make sure your article fulfills everything as promised.
  • Make sure your article is grammatically correct: Writing error-full articles for your readers will lose the loyalty and decrease the credibility you have built over time. So use Grammarly or other grammar checker tools like Grammarly to check punctuation and find grammatical mistakes.
  • Use Synonyms to polish your article: Using the same meaning words or synonyms helps your article rank for more keywords. Use these synonym finder tools to generate more equivalent words.
  • Add up more long-tail keywords: Long-tail keywords are so easier to rank rather than head tails. So adding a few more relevant long-tail keywords won’t harm your article’s rankings, but will increase targeted traffic. Learn how to find low competition keywords with good traffic volume in this article.
  • Add relevant links: This will increases the efficiency of Googlebot crawls your blog. Add a few relevant inbound and outbound links in your article. Don’t overuse this as more links added it will be harder to consume your content.
  • Update older content: When you start updating posts you will find that most contents that worked a few years ago are not complemented to this time. For an instance, images used a few years ago is not corresponding to this time. So, make sure your readers don’t get outdated content.
  • Curate content: Now there are microblogging networks and third-party blogging platforms such as Google Blogger, Medium, Tumblr, Shopify, and Squarespace that lets you publish content. Use ContentStudio to publish your articles on those networks and increase the crawling efficiency. Learn more about ContetnStudio in this tutorial.

Google has penalized your blog

There are only two ways to penalize your website; Manual penalty and algorithmic update.

Do you know Google penalize over 400,000 websites manually each month?

The main reason why many websites are penalized is that their backlink profile is not too good. Google Panda and Google Penguin are another two very important updates that will help people to find high quality and most relevant content on the Google search results.

If Google has penalized your blog, then you might be convinced that there is a huge, significant drop in traffic. Go to your Analytics program (most people use Google Analytics and others could use one or more of these real-time traffic analyzing tools) and filter overall traffic stats during the last six months or one year.

If you can see a huge, substantial traffic drop, Go to the Google Search Console dashboard and see whether Google has sent you an important message.

Crawl Errors

Having lots of crawling errors is a BIG reason why Google doesn’t crawl your website and get new content into the index.

So go to Google search console and look for any crawl error such as Not found (404), Not response, Time out.

These errors will not only lose your customers but also your relationship with your website and Googlebot too.

Fix crawl errors as soon as possible. Then follow below third step to make a request to crawl again to Google.

Robots can’t Index your web pages

Have you mistakenly blocked search engine bots from crawling and indexing the web pages?

So Google will not be able to index your web pages. Make sure you did not add robots header meta tags to prevent search engines from indexing certain important web pages and used the Robots.TXT file to block search engine bots from following the links.

Google Search Console provides you useful information about the site index.

Google URL coverage

You can see a live Robots.txt over here.

Essentially, the more quality backlinks your site has, Googlebot and others will follow links and crawl your site to get faster indexing new posts.

Analyze how much backlinks your site has and which pages are linking etc., by using a tool like Semrush. Learn more about Semrush in this post.

Poor interlinking strategies

Have you ever thought why your quality, older web pages don’t get much traffic than they used to be?

The reason is your interlinking strategy is poor. I have been talking much more about interlinking in this Google Blogger SEO guide and Tumblr SEO guides. Interlinking helps to decrease website bounce rate, increase user engagement and also share the link juice within other web pages.

Internal linking is so much powerful. Your web pages can rank for hundreds of long-tail keywords just alone using proper internal-linking strategies.

Dead Pages

This is a result of poor interlinking and not having a sitemap for your blog. By generating more dead pages, search engines won’t find important web pages that must be ranked on Google SERP.

Dead pages are the ones that people and search engine bots cannot find it on your site.

You must interlink a web page to another page at least once. Also, you should create a sitemap/Archive page on your blog, not only for search engines to find all indexable content, but also for people to browse all posts deeply.

How to find your site pages are indexable by search engine bots

There is a way to find out if your site is properly configured so that every post is linked somewhere within the site.

Download Website Auditor over here and set up a project.

After crawling the entire site, Go to Site Structure > Visualization. Next, view the map based on the ‘Click Depth.’

Site Visualization map based on the Click Depth

Embedding posts sitemap widget into 404 error (Not Found) page will also increase the crawl efficiency. If you use WordPress CMS, you can use this Google XML sitemap generator plugin to create one for your blog.

Your Web host is down!

Choosing a good web hosting company to host your website will make it super easy to blog on. Even though there are lots of free WordPress web hosting services, you shouldn’t ever opt for it.

Either use an inexpensive WordPress hosting company such as Bluehost or a WordPress optimized hosting company like WPEngine.

You have removed a page from showing in Google

Did you use Google’s “Removals” tool to remove any URL from Google Index?

So, you might not have anything to do rather than edit the URL and add a 301 permanent redirect from older post permalink to new permalink and get search engines to crawl your site again.

When you work with the Google Search Console, you should be careful and be aware of what you are doing exactly. Wrong actions could resonate to remove URLs from Google index quickly rather than it takes to index on Google.

Why should you index your content as quickly as possible on search engines?

Now you know several reasons why Google doesn’t index your web pages and doesn’t rank them on Google SERP. Here are a few reasons why you should get search engines to index your site as quickly as possible.

  • Rank your web pages quickly: why you wait weeks or months to see your fresh content rank on Google SERP? How will it look like if Google ranks your new posts within a few minutes in Google search result pages?
  • Prevent penalizing your website for duplicate content issues: Perhaps someone might steal your content and do some works to rank on Google. The most horrible thing is that when their pages start outranking your post in Google SERP. Google might penalize your website for duplicate content issues. Therefore, the best thing to do right after publishing your new blog post is to get Googlebot indexed content as soon as possible.
  • Increase Overall Keyword density: Google uses site relevancy and overall keyword density to rank web pages for search terms. You can find your website’s high-density keywords and keyword stemming in Google webmaster tools. By indexing new posts, you can increase the overall keyword density, so increase the search engine ranking of older posts.
  • Convince Google That Your website is active: People love fresh content. So Google also loves websites that update so often and provide quality content. Next time you update your older posts and publish a new post, you should try to get Google to index your content fast. This will be a good reason for Google to know that you update your blog regularly.

2 Effective Ways to Get Google to Crawl Your Site

#1. Google Ping

The best thing in RSS feed services that most SEOs like is that the Ping services. If you use Feedburner as the RSS feed service for your blog. You can use this method.

Step #1: Sign in to your Feedburner account and go to Feed Title >> Publicize >> Pingshot.

Step #2: Activate the Pingshot service.

Pingshot

Step #3: Noindex RSS feed because you don’t want to create duplicate content on authority websites.

Noindex RSS feed

Besides the Feedburners Pingshot service, you can use an online Ping service to ping new URLs to RSS feed services and blog search engines. Here are a few online blog pinging services.

  1. Pingler
  2. Pingomatic

WordPress Ping List

If you are using WordPress and want to notify search engines about your new updated content as soon as possible, copy and paste this Ping list.

Paste these Ping URLs in the Update Services section under the Writing settings.

#2: Fetch as Google – Google Search Console

This is another method to get Google to crawl your site and index your website quickly. I really like this method, because I can crawl entire my website anytime I want. Another thing is that I can see at which time Google indexed the web pages.

I submitted my previous post, Image SEO – How to rank Images on Search Engines to Google Index. Result? Google indexed it within a few minutes and when I searched it again on Google, it showed me that before 13 minutes Google indexed the web page. Here’re the steps of properly adding a web page to the Google index in Google webmaster tools.

Step #1: Make sure your post is not yet indexed by Google. You can easily find it by searching your web page address on Google. In my case, I searched Image SEO post’s permalink first.

Not yet indexed

As you can see the post is not yet indexed by Googlebot. Make sure that you didn’t add the noindex tag on the web page as it can prevent Googlebot from indexing the web page.

Step #2: Go to Google Search Console >> URL Inspection

Step #3: Enter the page URL that you want to inspect. Recently, I have inspected this post on Semrush price increases and was able to submit it to Google Index manually.

Step #4: In the next step, you would see a popup box. It will show that the URL is being inspected. Wait a few seconds until it’s done. Once it finished, click on the “Request Indexing” link.

Now Google will add your website to the index queue. Googlebot will soon crawl your page.

Step #5: Here’s the Google SERP when I search the URL again after 13 minutes of break.

Here is a video that explains how to use the URL Inspection tool.

Conclusion on how to get google to index your site

Google’s URL Inspection tool is very useful when it comes to faster indexing a web page on Google.

It’s not guaranteed that your submitted URL will be crawled immediately and show it on Google SERP very soon. Learn more.

However, from an SEO point of view, these SEO tools are very useful than another crappy tool that promises that they will help index your web pages on Google quickly.

The best way to protect your blog and make a strong foundation is by getting search engines to index your site as fast as possible. By following the above three methods, you can index your website on Google quickly in less than ten minutes.

In most cases, I was able to get Google to crawl my new posts in under five minutes. I don’t have screenshots to prove that now. But, I know that you think that it is possible now.

I know that blogspot, wordpress, tumblr are get index fast but the other site like beep.com get index slowly. Even though I submit it to google, ping, share social site but it gets no index.

    Thank you.

    • If the site is new to internet, then it would take a few minutes to hours or sometimes dates to index in search engines. If you don't see Google index your website, then create some social signals (especially Google+ likes and shares, URL in YouTube description also works pretty well) through content sharing networks. And then verify your website with GWT and fetch as Googlebot. Your web 2.0 website/web pages should be indexed by Google within a few minutes.

      Make sure you didn't block web-spiders from crawling web pages on your site. If you use fetch as Googlebot tool with having no-index tags on header, then it is violating Google terms.

  7. Helpful article. It is really a common problem that we do not get google index quickly after publishing our posts. But it is not a good sign. Because if google does not index our posts or pages, we will not appear in SERPs. So we need the proper guideline. I think your post is full of perfect information. Thanks for sharing.

    • Yes, you are right munna. If search engines don’t see our pages, how could we expect to receive organic traffic? We can’t.

      Glad you found these information helpful.

    • I believe you’re in the Home page of Google Search Console where you can see all verified websites. It looks like you don’t have verified your website with Google. First submit your website to Google Search Console and then follow the steps.
