How To Get Your New Website Indexed On Google

Are you new to blogging? Do you want to get your website to show on Google? Then this is the post for you.

In my post, I show you how to request Google to index your website, step by step. Google searches the web for new content every second of every day. You can help Google find your new website faster.

After publishing my first blog post,, I didn’t know how Google would find my new website. Google has a free tool for website owners to get websites indexed.

To get your new website on Google, you have to publish lots of quality content. Each time you publish a post, request Google index your post. Once indexed, Google’s complex algorithm rates your content against what it already has.

Let’s get started.

How Does Google Find New Websites?

Google has ‘bots’ that constantly scan the web looking for new content. Once the bots find fresh content, Google’s algorithm analyses the data for ranking.

How To Get Your Website On Google For Free

Google’s bots will find your website without you having to do anything. You can speed up this process by using Google’s free tool for website owners.

The tool is free, but before you can use it, you have to verify ownership of your site.

The tool is called the ‘Google Search Console’. You can sign up for a Google Search Console account at ‘‘.

Google offer various methods to verify a site. Once verified, you get the green tick.

How To Submit Your Website To Google Search Console

Once your website is verified, submit your blog to Google for indexing.

Go to your Google Search Console and paste your site address into the inspect any URL tool.

Inspect any URL

Select enter, and then Google checks its index database.

Retrieving data

If Google has indexed your site, you see this message.

Pages not indexed won’t have the green tick. In that case, select the ‘Request Indexing’ link.

Once you request indexing, Google checks the URL for errors.

Testing URL

If there are no issues with the URL, Google confirms your indexing request. To clear the message, click on ‘Got It’.

Repeat this process every time you publish a new blog post.

How To Check If Google Has Indexed Your Website

You can check if Google has indexed your website from your internet browser. Open a new browser tab, then type ‘site:(site URL)’ into Google.

For example, to check my website, I type Google lists all pages indexed from my site.

If Google hasn’t indexed your website, you get this message.

How Long Does It Take For A Website To Appear On Google?

Once Google indexes your website, a complex algorithm analyses your content. How fast a website appears on Google depends on the result of the algorithm tests.

New websites have to work hard to gain topic authority. Produce quality content that serves searcher intent. Build your site around a topic you can cover in great depth. Google likes websites that are an excellent source of information.

How Does Google Crawl A Website?

Google uses bots to scan the internet for new and updated content. These bots scan millions, probably billions of pages every day. Google’s algorithm analyses the data for ranking.

Throughout the year, Google updates the algorithm to improve search results.

How To Know If Google Has Indexed Your Website

You can check what pages from your website are indexed by Google directly from Google search.

Type ‘site:’ followed by the URL of your website. For example, to check my website, I type This specific search instructs Google to deliver results from the site specified.

Site search

You can also check for indexed pages in your Google Search Console. From the menu on the left, select ‘Coverage’.


Your Google Search Console coverage dashboard displays errors, warnings, indexed pages, and excluded pages.

Coverage summary

Click on the tabs to view details. For example, I have 168 valid pages.

Valid pages

From the report, I have 106 pages submitted and indexed. I also have another 62 pages indexed. These pages are not in my website’s sitemap.

To view the list of pages, click on the text.

Submitted and indexed

I have pages indexed information and Google crawl data.

Should your report show pages with errors or warnings, I recommend fixing those issues. Pages with problems probably won’t appear in Google search results.

How Do I Update My Website On Google?

To update your website on Google, request Google index your site through your Google Search Console. Once Google crawls your site, the data is analysed and indexed. Changes made on your site update on Google once this process is complete.

You can’t force Google to update. In my experience, Google updates my website within a few days.
