    I recently created my first ever website.  Was just a bit of fun to see what exactly is involved and to see if I can pull in any traffic.  It took about a week for the site to get indexed.  As of yet though not of the pages on my site seem to be indexed by Google.  I have the main homepage then 3 seperate pages at the moment.  It's been two weeks since I created the first additional page.  Anyone know if I am doing anything wrong?  Will the extra pages get indexed?  How long might it take?  Any help greatly appreciated.

      andy, try adding your new site to your profile page so people can take a look. My pages were added almost immediately, fresh content to google is normally indexed within hours. Are you sure about this?

        Hi Brian, thanks for the reply.  OK have added a link into my profile page.  I am pretty sure the pages are not indexed.  Is there any way I can check this?  Have already tried a few methods, maybe I'm not checking properly.  But I would say I'm 99% sure they are not indexed.

          Just had a look at your site, you have 4 pages in total is that correct. I copied and pasted your url into google for you. To add any pages to google just type in the google search box - add website to google and you are requested to add your url and copy a ding bat, thats all there is to it.

            Cheers Brian, will give that a try.  And yes, there are four pages altogether.

              Just tried doing what you said.  Where I add the URL it say that I only need to add the top-level page, I don't need to add every web page.  So should I try submitting my main page again, or try adding speciifc pages even though I'm asked not to do that?

                Andy you need only enter the url of the name of your site, this is in your case the first page, any subsequent pages written will then be automatically added and indexed. When any searcher finds your site they can then see what I saw when I looked and go to your other pages if they want to. From what I'm looking at you don't have a problem.

      Hey andyoz,

      You can use Google webmaster tool for your site.
      There are lots of thing which helps you to track the crawl error, XML sitemap submission and may more things.
      Try that!

    Submit your site to SEs. Normally, it should take no more than 2 days to get a page indexed.

    Put a link to your website in your profile and then we could take a look?

    You could ping your pages, create backlinks to them, tweet them etc

    A new site needs all the exposure you can get - you could find other blogs on a similar topic and offer to write guest posts etc

    That's not a bad idea, will post a link on my profile page.  Have a few links up there already, although they are to my main page and not the individual pages.  How do I submit a page to a search engine?

    register your site with    at​tracta.com   they do everything for you and for free.   Works really well until you make some money then you have to pay for it - but if you are making it because they get you indexed and crawled continuously then . . .

    How are you checking whether your sites are indexed?

    1. andyoz profile image90
      andyozposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I go to my site, click on the page I'm checking, copy the URL at the top of the page, paste it into google and search.  I get the homepage up, but not the individual pages.
