Summary: Instant Indexing – a process by which you automatically alert Google indexing about a page, post, or any URL for your website (or in bulk). This guide teaches you how to eliminate the manual process and make it automatic.
The manual way is to visit Google Search Console, enter your URL for Inspection, then Request Indexing – one page at a time.
You can visit Google directly to read their guide on the Indexing API Quickstart process.
- Per their recommendation, “…the Indexing API prompts Googlebot to crawl your pages sooner than updating the sitemap and pinging Google.”
- Their guide will also inform you how to complete this process by hardcoding with Python, Java, PHP, and Node.js.
- This guide here uses a plugin to avoid the hardcoding process. Use only as your developer directs.
