Google Indexing Pages Again

Google’s Indexing Issues Improving

For years now we’ve always wondered why a lot of our competitors didn’t take advantage of Google Console’s (formerly Webmaster Tools) url submission tool.

 

url Submission

Basically rather than be lazy and wait for Google to discover a new page, or read updates made to an existing page, you simply had to “force crawl” it and typically within a few hours / or the next day you’d see the new or changed page indexed in the search results.

 

Lockdown Blues

No idea why, presumably due to limited resources, this system became much less effective at the start of the first UK lockdown ie March 2020. It was sporadic at best and in the last 6 months it’s become extremely hard for small sites to get new pages read at all. This is despite well written in depth content, external back linking, internal linking, updating content and anything else we could think of to grab Google’s attention.

 

Small Business Websites

It’s been a massive pain & puts small businesses at a big disadvantage – especially when trying to expand areas or offer new products, let alone the overall dis-advantage of not being seen by Google to be producing any new or updated content.

 

Problem Fixed After 2 Years?

In the last few days however we’ve seen an 80% success rate in getting pages showing up in the SERPS, including pages we’ve been trying to index for several months.

 

So I’m hopeful that this becomes permanent & normal service is restored, so worthwhile new pages will be indexed on Google within a day or two of publication.
