Support » Fixing WordPress » post not getting indexed (using Yoast SEO)

  • Hello everyone,

    My most recent post is not getting indexed. It’s showing up in my sitemap, and I’ve submitted the individual URL to both Google and Bing webmaster tools. Can anyone take a look at the post and let me know what’s going on? I’ve checked the source code, and there’s not robots.txt preventing search engines from crawling it. It’s very strage, all of my other posts are getting indexed just fine.

    It may take some time for the search engines to index your post. It looks like this is a fairly recent post, so it may just be that the Search Engines haven’t crawled your site recently.

    Do you use Google Webmaster Tools? If so, you can get crawl statistics and information about your site there. If not, it’s free to sign up.

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks for the info. I wrote the post a few days ago. I am using Google WMT, and I submitted the post to be indexed, but still nothing.

    WMT is showing that it has indexed all posts but 1:

    I’m not sure why it won’t index it. Bing hasn’t indexed it either

    Hm, that does seem strange. The good news is that it appears no errors were found. At this point, the only thing that I can think of is that it might just require a little more time.

    If anyone has any additional thoughts, feel free to chime in.

    Your post has already been indexed but it’s not that much yet old so that it may appear with just small number of specific posts keywords. You should search in Google For:

    After this I just got your post at the top 😉 So its indexed now wait for some more time and wait for google bots to index it more in a good manner. Also consider sending pings to every search engine about this post 🙂

    yes it is there, thanks for pointing that out!
