Blog articles not indexed by Google

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I own a small video production company, and write blog posts to boost my organic Google ranking. 

However, some of my blog articles are not indexed by Google, and I can't understand why. 

Of course, I regularly go to the Google Search Console, and send the sitemap.xml request. I also send individual indexation requests for every page that has not been indexed naturally. 

I checked all the settings of the problematic pages, and everything looks fine. There is no "no index" tag or stuff like that. The blog posts have exactly the same settings and format, and some are properly indexed by Google, and others aren't. 

Here are some screenshots of Search Console. 

Has someone already encountered the same indexation issues ?

Hi @aym38 can you share the url to a blog post that you are having issue being indexed by Google? and can you share the error message you see in Google Search Console for that particular URL? Can you please translate it to English before sharing the screenshot so it'd be easier for the community to help? Thanks

And here are some screenshots of what Search Console says, this time in english

Thanks! What happens when you click on Request Indexing? Does it say successful or is there an error?

Yes, I already clicked on it at least a dozen times for each article, at different periods. But it doesn't work for these articles, it's like Google chooses to ignore them even if I ask it to index them...

I would wait for Google to do its thing, it could sometimes take a couple of weeks. How long has it been since you first crawled? Note, when it says Crawled, re-submitting won't help. As there is no error, there is nothing to correct. 

You can see more from Google's documentation on page indexing

I'm having the same problem. NONE of my blog posts are being indexed by Google. I have resubmitted the site map, re-indexed individual pages. They were crawled and discovered in JANUARY but still not indexed. Any solution would be awesome.
