Are your web pages also not visible on Google even if you published them? or you don’t even know that those pages are on Google or not? Then I can help you with that.
Google many times auto indexes the posts from the site in order to keep itself updated, but sometimes it doesn’t because there might be some issue with your website let’s see what are those issues are.
High Authority Domain
This is directly related to the craw budget allocated by Google. Google have web spiders that crawl through every page, post available on the site and then index it into Google.
Google allocate these spiders according to every domain. If a site has a low domain authority then Google will allocate fewer spiders to crawl them.
This is the reason why many people suggest buying a domain instead of using a free alternative like Blogspot. Because Google doesn’t crawl them very much or the budget allocated to them is less.
Now with the high domain authority, you can buy any domain like the .xyz domain which very costs around $1 for the first month also performs well on Google.
Submitting a Site Map
‘Sitemap’ this world explains itself. This is a map to the site, so if you don’t submit a site map on Google then Google will never know what is inside of your site.
Also, it helps Google to index the pages fastly so that their bot shouldn’t have to go through every page and index it one by one.
In order to submit a site map, you have to create one. There are many tools available on the internet that will do it for you one of them is labnol.org.
After getting the sitemap URL you have to head to the Google search console then the sitemap option and paste the sitemap URL and click on submit.
By performing these steps Google will know everything about your site.
Problem with Robot.txt
Robot.txt can allow or disallow the Google bots to see your site content. So, this is a very important thing to take care of.
Make sure that in the HTML header section of the site there should not be something like NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW.
This will be in the form of <Meta Name = “Robots” CONTENT = “NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW”>.
After just reading this HTML tag you can guess that it is restricting the Google bots to crawl the website. So, make sure to change them into INDEX, FOLLOW.
Continuous Posting is Necessary
Google loves new content because this is what makes it the best search engine in the world. So always posting new things on the website is necessary.
Now as you already know that Google has a crawl budget for every website. Same as that Google has a crawl time for websites.
So, suppose if you are someone that is actively updating their site and posting new content. The Google bot will regularly visit your website crawl and index new content of the site.
But if the site is not being updated regularly then the bot will stop coming on your website and thus your site will be declared as dead.
That’s the reason why many websites fall in ranking even they were performing well because the site is not updated for even a week.
Your Budget is Over
If Google allocates a budget for every website, then it must have a limit and if a site exceeds the limit then Google will no longer index any new content from that site.
Now, this seems unfair since Google love new content but also Google has a limit of how much content it will take from your website.
The big relief is that this only happens to big websites, like a big media house that is continuously updating their site about the recent news. So, you don’t have to worry about this that much, but this might be an issue since the budget is allocated according to the domain.
No Path for Bots
One of the ways that the bot works is it crawl a page and if it finds a new link on that then it will crawl that link and index it.
This is also one of the main reasons why people use interlinking of articles, so the bot can easily research to that page too.
So, if your site has a page or a blog that is not linked with some page that is already in Google then make sure to link it.
If all of these things are seemed ok but still your page is not visible in google then you can visit Google Search Console and directly index the webpage.
You can do this by URL inspection option. You just have to inspect whether the URL is in Google or not if it is or it is not you can request indexing, and Google will index your URL.
Patience Is Necessary
Now, the ‘The Ace of Spades’ of this game is patience. Google is slow when it comes to indexing and then showing the URL on the web.
This is mainly because Google indexes about 25 Billion pages every day, so you can see how big this number is. So, it takes Google some to get everything done.
