Thomas had a fantastic system for adding URL’s to Google and to make Google index them in the old Google Search Console. But, recently Google forced him to use the new Search Console, and he had to find a new way to submit his articles and posts to Google. How is it done?
Luckily, things are even easier in the new version of Google Search Console. Probably, you do not even need the help of Thomas to fix it, but in case you wonder how to make Google index your sites and articles quickly, this is what you need to do.
Submit an URL to Google in the new Search Console
First of all, you need to add your domain to your Google profile in Google Search Console. That is the first, and most important step. Once this is done, follow the instructions in the video beneath, or do as follows.
Press URL inspection in the menu on the left. You will then simply be taken to the “search bar” at the top of the page. Add your URL to this bar, and it will start asking Google what it knows about the URL. If it has been indexed already, you will get a message about that. If it hasn’t been indexed, you can ask Google to index it.
Once you have finished the index request, you will see a message looking something like this.
That was it, Thomas has fixed it, and you can submit your URL’s to Google in the new Search Console as well.
It is important to submit quality, and if you do, Google will normally index your article within a few minutes. If you submit spam, it probably won’t get indexed at all.
