Do I Need lớn Manually Add a New URL or My Website to Google?

Leaving Google to find new content on its own can result in delays where your page isn't indexed, but it takes just minutes when you manually insize Google.

But once you have sầu added a sitemaps, you might be surprised khổng lồ find that you can't actually go in và 'resubmit' in the new Search Console.

Google doesn't kiểm tra a sitemaps every time a site is crawled; a sitemaps is checked only the first time that we notice it, and thereafter only when you ping us to let us know that it's changed. You should alert Google about a sitemaps only when it's new or updated; bởi vì not submit or ping unchanged sitemaps multiple times.

Send an HTTP. GET request lượt thích this:

As a side note, your XML sitebản đồ should be referenced in your site's robots.txt tệp tin.

Use Internal Links

As we mentioned before, Google doesn't actually need you to lớn submit a URL for it khổng lồ be indexed, it just needs to be informed that it exists. It is a good time to lớn point out here that one of the main ways Google finds new pages is through links.

If you add an internal link into another page on your site that Google already has in its index, this will help the new URL lớn be discovered. 

Of course, you should only add liên kết where it makes sense to vì so in topically relevant pages, but you can learn more about internal linking best practices in this guide.

Link from an External Source
