Hi, I added new pages to our website about 6 weeks ago, and they still haven’t been indexed by Google. Search console doesn’t indicate any issue with the pages. It says the URLs aren’t on Google, but not because of an issue. Has anybody had this problem before? I requested indexing again, but to no avail. The content is really good too, in my opinion. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
First, do a site:https://www.website.com search to make sure it’s ACTUALLY not indexed. I read something yesterday about Google search console errors showing that URLs are not indexed when they clearly are. It said the homepage of my client who gets millions of clicks a month what discovered but not indexed lol
I have the same issue. What I find is looking at the value those pages offer and try to increase it. Make it mandatory for Google to index it.
It will take some time for Google to acknowledge the changes you make on those pages, but you will see they start to index them after changing the content of those pages.
My location based service pages are not getting indexed, because they are too similair to eachother. Even though they are written seperately, Google does not value those pages, so they do not want to crawl them.
So the matter is really about the content of those pages, and if they satify user intent.
Have you checked that it’s not blocked by wildcard in your robots.txt? You can plug your robots.txt in screaming frog and run your url to test. I just published a few brand new pages and all were crawled in a few days.
