No Longer Under Manual Penalty - But Some Pages Are Not Indexed


Best Answer chrishirst , 25 October 2013 - 11:55 AM

And #2 on page 1.  How does that happen so fast?

 

Getting crawled or appearing in the results??

 

 

Because it may have been crawled several days ago  and  the server that your results are coming from has only just been synched up.

 

Appearing in results? No surprises there because all newly indexed URLs appear with 'high ranking' for a few days.

We are no longer under a Google manual Penguin penalty, (it was removed in March 2013), but I just noticed today that one of our pages is not indexed by Google.

It is a page that's been around for over 6 years.

 

It is a section/category page that has a moz page authority of 35, domain authority of 42.

 

The products located on this section page are indexed by google, and on first page of serp for the keywords.

The meta title is accurate, the meta description of page is good.

 

But this section page which is highly relevant to the keywords, and there is not much competition on these keywords either, is not indexed by Google.

 

Should I contact Google?  Or someone on this forum might be able to peek at my page and provide some insights?

 

Thank you!

Ron

The obvious check is to make sure it doesn't have no index or is being blocked by robots.txt. If those aren't the case check for the same content on a different URL.

I checked and none of the above was true.  I went in WMT and submitted the url to be indexed.  And today the page is indexed!  And #2 on page 1.  How does that happen so fast?  Crazy.  I checked last few weeks and it wasn't there when i searched google "site:url"

 

Thanks!

Possibly a coincidence. There might have been some kind of glitch or delay for some reason, and the indexing / ranking for that page just happened to occur along about the same time you submitted it via WMT. (One thing at lot of us are really bad about in SEO is mixing up correlation with causation. :) )

 

Of course, it could have happened because of your request, too. Google works in mysterious ways sometimes.
