Top 5 Reasons Google Doesn't Index Your Website

  1. You don't have a web address.

               The lack of a domain name is the first reason Google will not index your site. This could be because you're using the wrong URL for the content or because WordPress isn't set up correctly.

               It's also possible that your IP address redirection isn't set up correctly.

               Adding 301 redirects from WWW versions of pages back onto their respective domains is one method to solve this problem. We want folks to land on your physical domain name if they are referred here when looking for [yoursitehere].

               It's critical to make sure you have a domain name. If you want to rank and compete on Google, this is a must-have.


  1. Your website is incompatible with mobile devices.

               Since Google adopted Mobile-First indexing, having a mobile-friendly website is essential for getting your site indexed.

               You'll lose rankings and visitors no matter how good your website's content is if it isn't optimized for viewing on a smartphone or tablet.

               Mobile optimization doesn't have to be tough; simply including responsive design ideas such as fluid grids and CSS Media Queries may go a long way toward ensuring that users can find what they need without difficulty.

               Running your site via Google's Mobile-Friendly Testing Tool is the first thing I recommend doing to address this issue.

               If you don't receive a "passed reading," you'll need to concentrate on making your site more mobile-friendly.


  1.  You're using a coding language in an incomprehensible way for Google.

               If you use a sophisticated coding language, Google will not index your site. It makes no difference what language is used - it could be old or new, like JavaScript – as long as the settings are incorrect and cause crawling and indexing problems.

               If you're having trouble with this, I recommend using Google's Mobile-Friendly Testing Tool to determine how mobile-friendly your website is (and make any fixes that might need to be made).

               If your website isn't yet up to their requirements, they have a wealth of tools with rules for dealing with a variety of design eccentricities that can arise while creating a responsive webpage.


  1. Your website takes a long time to load.

               Slow-loading websites are less likely to be included in Google's index's top results. It could be due to a variety of circumstances if your site takes a long time to load.

               It's also possible that you have too much content on the page for the user's browser to handle, or that you're utilizing an old server with restricted resources.

                Use Google Page Speed Insights – This is one of my favorite tools I've discovered in recent years for determining which portions of a website require immediate attention when it comes to boosting its speed. The tool evaluates your website against five performance best practices (essential for quicker loading sites), such as decreasing connections, reducing payload size, exploiting browser cache, and so on, and provides recommendations on how to enhance each area of your site.

               Use a website testing tool like webpagetest.org – This tool will tell you whether your website is loading quickly enough. It will also help you to identify the specific elements on your site that are causing you problems in greater detail. Their waterfall can help you spot major page performance issues before they become a major issue.

               Use Google's Page Speed Insights once more to see where you might improve your site's load times. It might be worth looking into a new hosting plan with additional resources (pure dedicated servers are significantly superior to shared servers) or employing a CDN provider to serve static material from its cache in multiple locations around the world.


  1. JavaScript is used to render content on your website.

               Using JavaScript alone isn't necessarily a complicated issue that leads to indexing issues. There is no single rule that states that JS is the sole thing that creates issues. To discover if this is a problem, you must examine each site individually and diagnose concerns.

               When JS avoids crawling by doing shady things — tactics that may be similar to cloaking – it becomes a concern.

               If you have raw HTML vs. rendered HTML and a link in the raw HTML that isn't in the produced HTML, Google may not crawl or index that link. Because of these types of errors, it's critical to define your rendered HTML vs. raw HTML concerns.

               Don't do it if you want to keep your JS and CSS files hidden. When Google crawls your site, they want to view all of your JS and CSS files.

               All JS and CSS should be crawlable, according to Google. If any of those files are banned, you should unlock them and allow full crawling to provide Google with the information they require.
