Indexing issue advice?

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.buffalobiketours.com/

Hi, I'm hoping for some quick advice. After watching some videos on SEO, I recently decided to change the URLs on a few of my pages. This turned out to be a disaster. My visibility dropped dramatically and changed it back after just a day or two. 

The problem is Google is not indexing several pages now. I've tried to resolve the issue by:

  • submitting my sitemap through Google Search Console
  • submitted my individual pages in question for indexing to Google Search Console

Is there anything else I can do other than wait?? 

There are three affected pages: 
https://www.buffalobiketours.com/blog
https://www.buffalobiketours.com/foodtoursbuffalony
https://www.buffalobiketours.com/blog/east-side-history-tour-buffalo-ny

All 3 pages say "Failed: Crawl anomaly". Thank you kindly for any help and advice!!

I don't have a suggestion for your current problem. In the future if you want to change page URLs be sure to use URL redirects.

Hi @marcmoscato - given that there were changes to the site structure and URLs, you'll likely need to wait for Google to reindex the site before things stabilize again. As @creedon just wrote, it's always important to set up URL redirects any time you change the URL of any pages, and dramatic URL structure changes can be difficult to pull off on Squarespace because there isn't an option to create complex URL redirect rules that apply to multiple pages.

Based on what Google has indexed on your site currently, it looks like there may still be some clean up to do – there are some potentially incomplete or draft pages included in the live indexed results currently: https://www.google.com/search?q=site:https://www.buffalobiketours.com/

Message me if you're interested in a website audit or more assistance with getting the site structure organized and indexed again! We could run an audit and then provide recommendations focused on the specific issues you're running into here. https://www.bluehillsdigital.com/products/website-seo-audit-report/
