In this article we are going to explain what is the process to upload a web page to Google, so that it appears in this service.
When someone creates a web page or a blog to write about news, share content and inform their readers, something fundamental, something they expect from the first moment is that it integrates with the Google search engine. It is important that you reach your end users, as most will be reached through search.
It is important to know that when creating a first website, it is normal that it does not appear in Google. That takes a process, especially if we are going to talk about something generic. You need to gain importance as a page, to have content and for crawlers to find our site and link them to possible results.
This process is called indexing. Not only the website itself is indexed, as it would be in this case redeszone.net, but all the pages within that site. This is, for example, each of the articles that we publish, each of the sections of that website. All this in short is full of different URLs that must be indexed.
Google bots constantly crawl the web for new articles, new sites and content. Yet there are so many millions of sites, articles, and different URLs that newer, lighter pages can take a long time to appear in the results.
Google tool to index pages
From Google they offer a free tool to help give that initial push. We can submit the sitemap of our site so that the URL of the site appears in the search engine. We can send just one URL or a few, as well as a large number.
This process can take anywhere from just a few days to even several weeks. It is something that requires patience at first. The sitemaps is the robots.txt file for our site. As indicated by Google, that robots.txt file must be accessible to search engine robots, they recommend placing it at the root of the site and that we test it from an incognito window to be able to access it.
We must enter the Report sitemaps, link our website if we have not already done so, and submit the report. To link the site, to verify ownership, the easiest thing is to download the HTML file that appears and upload it through cpanel. But we also have other options, as we will see. We just have to choose the option and click to verify.
When we have verified the site we can go to Report, Sitemaps and there we will see the section to send the URL, which would have the ending robots.txt if we have done so.
Appearing in Google does not mean being on the first pages
In addition to what we mentioned, we must bear in mind that appearing in Google is not synonymous with being on the first pages. It may be that our site has been indexed, that we have articles written that when searching may appear in the search engine, but that are far behind and do not really have visitors.
This is something that happens on new websites, which do not have a great weight and not much content yet. Google indexes it, it is part of all the content they take into account on the network, but it does not appear in the first results or pages when searching.
Know if a URL is indexed in Google
When we have carried out these steps, when we want to see if our website or a specific page of that site is actually indexed in Google, we can check it in a very simple way through the search engine itself.
For this we have to enter Google. In the search bar we are going to put site: nombredelsitio. For example it would be site: redeszone.net. If we want to see if a specific URL is indexed correctly, we have to write it in the search bar next to what we mentioned.Date update on 2020-11-16. Date published on 2020-11-16.
