FAQ about site indexing and the URL Submission tool
1. Does hosting affect the indexing of the site page?
Hosting quality is an important factor in the speed with which sites are indexed. Let's consider some reasons why the indexing speed may decrease due to slow hosting: The indicator of a web resource uptime ideally should have a value of 99.98%. If, due to hosting problems, the uptime of your site is lower, it is likely that the site may be unavailable during the next visit of the search robot. Therefore, the indexing will be done only the next time the bot visits the site, which may even be in a few weeks. This site’s rank drops in search engines. For stable maintenance and growth of rank, it is recommended to use paid hosting:
- They are more trusted by search engines;
- They have a higher data transfer rate.
The impact of free / weak hosting on indexing will be most noticeable for large, multi-page sites.
2. How long does it take to index a new page?
The approximate timeframe for indexing new pages and sites in Google is about 1 week, for Yandex it is 2-3 weeks.Bing will index a new page in about 2 days. It is important to remember that these figures are estimates and there is no guarantee that the indexation will take place within these timeframes.
3. If the site is set up correctly, how quickly does it display changes?
Are you updating the site and want to inform Google about the new page? First of all, make sure that all settings are correct. You can find out how to check the site ranking and evaluate usability in the articles on the Serpstat blog.
After checking, add URL Submission to the tool and then:
- Enter the domain;
- Add the Index Now API Key;
- Add a list of URLs (up to 10,000 units) that have changed;
- Click on "Add URL List".
The usual time for sites to be indexed in Yandex and Google is up to three weeks, but after using URL Submission, this will be significantly reduced, since the search engine bot will increase the priority of checking your page.
4. How to check whether Google saw changes on the page?
To check if Google has indexed and the search engine has recognized changes on the page, enter the following command in the search bar: site: [page address]. This way you will see all the site pages that have been indexed. You can check the date the site was last crawled by search engine bots. To do this enter the command cache: [address of the page being checked]. To check the indexing of a separate page, enter site: [page address] in the search bar. This verification method will work for Google, Yandex or Bing.
