Google Indexing Down

According to Search Engine Land, a company we are absolutely in love with here at Big Bang Marketing, there are massive issues going on with the Google Search Console.Today they published the following information on their website. Search Engine Land goes above and beyond to be a voice in the SEO world. They provide a plethora of free information and their staff of SEM and AdWord gurus are always on point with changes or updates to Online Marketing. Check out the newest information they’ve provided below.

Search Engine Land Reports on Google Issues 

On Friday, Google said it fully resolved the de-indexing issue that started on Thursday afternoon. But now Google is saying it is not fully resolved just yet and is still working on reprocessing a lot of the URLs that were delisted from the search index on Friday. Google suspects the issue should be resolved shortly and will provide another update when it is fully resolved.

What happened? On Thursday Google began to delist many URLs from its search index. We notified Google of the issue on Friday after we saw an influx of complaints from the SEO community. SEOs, webmasters, site owners and developers were noticing a nice chunk of their web pages were no longer showing up in the Google search results. Their pages were being removed, and they didn’t know why.

The sites’ traffic was impacted because those pages were no longer in Google’s index to display in search results for relevant queries. We do not know how widespread this issue was; we do not know how much traffic site owners lost over this bug; and we do not know what percentage of the Google index was impacted.

What is the status? Despite Google saying on Saturday morning it was fully resolved, it was not.

John Mueller from Google chimed back in on Sunday morning after many webmasters still didn’t see improvements and said on Twitter “Just a short update on this — indeed, it does look like there are still some pages that need to be reprocessed. Our systems are making good progress here, but it’s taking longer than I initially expected.”

John also said that you can use the Inspect URL and Submit to index feature in Google Search Console to expedite indexing of specific pages. He added that even when it is fully resolved that you may not see all your pages in Google’s index because Google doesn’t always list 100% of a site’s pages in their index.

Google posts on Twitter. Both John Mueller from Google and the Search Liaison account posted updates on Sunday:
