Thread: Why Has My Article Not Been Indexed?

  1. Default Why Has My Article Not Been Indexed?

    I wrote an article review on November 20th, and it still hasn't shown up for any search on google. After a week went by I thought it was weird because every article of mine (before and after) has indexed within a day on google. Now it's been about 4 weeks and I'm getting a little frustrated because this was an important one. I did some research on possible reasons why it wouldn't, but couldn't find any problems. Any help would be appreciated.... Although I do realize I may just have to wait a little longer.

    Also, it already shows that it has a couple backlinks to it, so I don't know what's up. Here's the article: Double Motorcycle Carrier

    It looks like it is indexed to me.

    What makes you think it is not?

    How do you know it's indexed? It's not ranking for any keywords.

    Search for the keywords and restrict it to your site. For example:

    amc 600

    and the article in question shows up on top - so it is indexed.

    Go to Google.

    In the search box type

    If your site is listed, it is indexed by Google.

    I've had this happen to me on occasion and it's a rather weird anomaly. I'll have articles that are indexed in less than an hour and then sometimes it will take months before they are indexed. I guess it's just another quirk in the Google algorithm that we will probably never be privy to!

    It's an article review, but it's all good now, just working on getting traffic. 400+ views per month so far.

    To help getting your article index, what I suggest is you "PING" it.

    Yep, I found out about that. Thanks.
