News Why can’t I find my website on Google yet?
When a website launches it is not instantly on google just because it is visible by it’s domain name. When we say Google, we are generalising as all search engines work in a similar way with regards to indexing websites. The process to index can take 4 days to 10 weeks depending on a number of factors such as.
- Popularity of the website – do any other websites link to them? Pushing it via social media such as Facebook and Twitter is a good way to help increase indexing speed here
- Is the content plentiful and worth reading? If the content is good then search engines will find it more relevant and find it faster to index.
- Ensure that the website is not using “black hat”techniques and methods to try and confuse search engines into promoting it higher than it should be, this is a trick they all see into now and doesn’t aid in good indexing.
- When we launch websites we submit the website to the various search engine indexes and in general within 3-4 weeks these are then indexed in google and start delivering search results.
