Thomas has created an article and would like to know if Google has indexed it already, or if he needs to manually submit it for indexing. Is there an easy way to discover if Google has indexed your website or not?
One of the most annoying things on earth is to have a fantastic product, but nobody knows about it, and thus the success keeps its distance. And, Thomas is afraid that all his brilliant articles will fail to succeed, at least if people cannot find them in Google. But, how can Thomas find out if Google has actually indexed his articles or not? Is there an easy way to find out?
Has Google indexed my website?
It is very easy to find out if Google has indexed your website or your articles? Here are two methods you can use easily.
This is probably the easiest and quickest version. All you need to do is to visit www.google.com and to search for the address/article/website you are curious about.
If your site has been indexed, you will find it in the search results. If you cannot find any content, then it hasn’t been indexed yet.
Visit Google Search Console and do an URL inspection
Make sure to register your website in the Google Search Console. Once it is registered, use the URL inspection tool and search for the address you would like to know more about.
If the article has been indexed, you will see something like this.
If the article hasn’t been indexed, the Search Console will tell you so, and it will also offer to index it so that it can be found in the search results.
