Crawled - not currently indexed is a status in Google Search Console that means that Google has visited a particular page on your website, but has not yet decided to add it to its index. This can happen for a number of reasons, including:
- The page is new and Google has not yet had a chance to evaluate it.
- The page is low quality or has thin content.
- The page is a duplicate of another page that is already indexed.
- The page is blocked from indexing by robots.txt or a noindex tag.
- The page is on a website with a large number of pages, and Google is prioritizing crawling other pages.
If you have a page that is crawled but not indexed, you can try the following to improve your chances of getting it indexed:
- Make sure that the page is not blocked from indexing. You can check this by looking at your robots.txt file and the noindex tag on your page.
- Improve the quality of the page. Make sure that the page has unique and informative content.
- Submit your sitemap to Google. This will help Google to find and crawl your pages.
- Request indexing. You can do this using the Google Search Console.
It is important to note that there is no guarantee that Google will index your page, even if you do everything right. However, by following the tips above, you can increase your chances of success.
Here are some additional tips to help you understand and fix crawled but not indexed issues:
- Check your Google Search Console coverage report. This report will show you all of the pages on your website that Google is aware of, and whether they are indexed or not.
- Identify the pages that are crawled but not indexed. Once you have identified these pages, you can start to investigate why they are not being indexed.
- Fix any indexing issues. If you find that any of your pages are blocked from indexing, or if they have low-quality content, you can fix these issues and then request indexing again.
- Be patient. It may take some time for Google to re-crawl and index your pages, so be patient and don't get discouraged if you don't see results immediately.
If you are still having trouble getting your pages indexed after following these tips, you can contact Google support for assistance.
