Thinking to yourself, “My website is not showing up on Google, why is this happening?!”
It so disappointing for your business — you use Google to search your most valuable keywords. Results flash on your screen. Nothing! Your website is not showing up on Google. What?
One of the reasons your website is not showing up on google could be that your website is new, it takes Google several weeks to index your site and reflect the changes in search results. This is true for new websites since they do not usually have many inbound links. Google considers both the number and quality of inbound links to sites when ranking them. It also will take a long period to build up your domain authority, so do not expect to see instant google ranking for a brand new website.
- Your site has “no index” tags.
Supposing you have an older site that is not indexed by Google, you should check the use of “no index” tags. Mistakenly adding “no index” code to your website prevents search engines such as Google or Bing from crawling and indexing pages. Lobitech Solutions to make sure your website “no index” tags is been done right and is not preventing certain pages you want to rank from appearing in search results.
- A robots.txt file can also prevent Google crawlers from visiting the entire sections of your website, so check to make sure you did not accidentally disallow pages you want to rank. For instance Websites that operate on WordPress contain built-in features that instruct search engines not to index the sites. Site owners need to disable the setting manually.
- How to fix a non-indexed site
If your website is not being indexed by Google, you could start by creating an account on Google Search Console. This allows you to create and direct Google to your sitemap.xml and request it to crawl and index your URLs. This however, does not guarantee website indexing, and if your website is new, it may still take longer to index and rank in search engine results pages. Try updating your website’s “no index” tags in your code and robots.txt to ensure Google bots can find, crawl, and index your pages.
- Your website has a penalty
Google penalties can also prevent your site from ranking in search results. If your website does not meet strict Google’s quality guidelines, it may temporarily or permanently be from Google search results.
- Google Penalties include:
Deindexed: Google completely removes your domain from search results.
- Penalized: Your domain still exists, but you can’t find your pages via a direct search. This penalty may result from a Google algorithm update, or Google can manually apply it.
- Sandboxed: Your Google traffic drops suddenly, but your domain wasn’t Deindexed or Penalized.
