Two Websites have a problem getting indexed.

Recommended Posts

Two Websites have a problem getting indexed. (https://www.souvenirsofsleep.com/) (https://www.search-studio.net/)

Homepage especially after inspecting url in the search console says can't be indexed.

Assuming it could be to low content. But that's how my clients prefer their homnepage - very minimal. 

Any suggestions or work around? Maybe there is something else getting in the way? 

Help please...

I think you're probably correct, it may well be purely down to the lack of content on the page. Google is constantly looking to index the pages that offer the most value to someone landing on a website. If you have no text, you have no keywords and therefore offer little value. I completely get where you're coming from, clients tend to know what they want, and want what they want. To draw a parallel, if they want a car without wheels, they'll have to accept that it won't be able to drive anywhere (unless you can get the car from back to the future).

Are any of the other pages getting indexed?

Actually no pages are getting indexed, even though google console url inspection tool states that the other urls ''can be indexed''. Yet Google doesn't index them  even after I request indexing. 
Especially when you look at this website - it doesn't make sense (www.search-studio.net)
There is plenty of content, but Google still didn't index. 
Could it be because of my custom codes that erase header/footer ? Any other ideas apart from getting more content on the page? I'm pretty sure I did a previous version of the www.souvenirsofsleep.com and the hompage was also just a background video but it did crawl and got indexed. 
Really lost here.

I would suggest keeping at the manual requesting of indexing on GSC. I assume these websites/domains have been live for more than a few months?

Google is always changing their criteria for indexing, what worked in the past may not always work now.
