Have new articles and new pages of the website been indexed? What should I do if the keyword ranking is still not available? These 3 tricks teach you to do the inclusion test, first confirm whether it is included, and then make SEO optimization adjustments for the article or page to be efficient.
3 tips to teach you whether articles and pages have been included
1. The most accurate use of google search console
Google search concole (hereinafter referred to as GSC) is very similar to GA, but GSC focuses more on recording the inclusion status of the page. Compared with GA, which counts all the website traffic together, GSC will only record google natural search, so if you only want to know the natural search status, look at GSC.
Not only that, GSC also counts the exposure, clicks, click-through rate, and ranking of each keyword on the page, which is a super easy-to-use data tool.
Therefore, there is no way to hide whether articles and pages are included. The following is a quick tutorial on how to know if the URL has been included↓
As shown in the figure above, when you complete a page, drop the URL to (1), and then press Enter, it will start to detect whether it has been included, and if it has, it will display the green “included” like (2) state.
If it is not included, a gray “not included” status will be displayed. Don’t worry, as long as you click on the “request indexing” on the side, it will start manual indexing, the slowest is about 2-3 days.
Please note: manual inclusion or multiple clicks for inclusion will not improve SEO ranking
If you change the Meta title or description later, you can also come here for inclusion and submission, and Google will also help you update the Meta information soon.
Now use it to see: google search concole
Two, directly enter the title in google to find the article
If you think GSC is still unreliable, you might as well just search and search for the title, if some are great. If not, it is recommended to go back to GSC to manually submit for inclusion.
3. In the google search bar, enter site:https://your URL
The “site: add URL” trick is usually used to see how many pages are included in the current website.
Therefore, you usually enter the homepage URL to see how many pages are included in the entire website to understand the inclusion situation of the entire website.
But it can also be used to find a specific URL, as well as other URLs associated with that URL, and the inclusion status will be displayed.
This trick is actually a bit like searching for the title directly, depending on the user’s habits. In short, as long as there is a search, it means it has been included; if it is not searched, it is not included, and you need to go to GSC to manually include it.
Generally, how long will it take for an article or page to be included after writing?
This collection time is not fixed, it is based solely on the website weight and update frequency.
News media websites, because of their huge volume, are usually searched within an hour after a news article is released, and they will also get a good ranking.
Some of the websites of my cooperating clients have more than 10,000 monthly traffic due to continuous and stable updates, so articles will usually be included within 2-3 days after they are published.
If the website has not been updated and has no traffic, or the weight of a new website is low, it may take 1-2 weeks to be included. Some of them will never be included. This may involve problems with the website structure, making it difficult for Google crawlers to crawl, or the website lacks a sitemap and cannot be automatically submitted. In this case, you need to go to GSC for manual submission.
