My website is not appearing in Google - HELP!

Recommended Posts

A few things will cause your site to not appear in the search engines. First thing is to be sure this line of code IS NOT in your pages:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">

... The above code tells the search engines to ignore your page and any links in the page. Instead, use this code:

<meta name="robots" content="all">

First, get setup with google web master tools:


A Google indexed pages checker can be used in the following way:
  1. Enter your URL in the Google indexed pages checker.
  2. The URL is the website that you are wishing to check about its ranking or webpage content value.
  3. Click continue to receive the results of your scan.

And how to see how many pages of my site are indexed? 

As Stef mentioned, you'll defintely want to get set up in webmaster tools / search console. Make sure you submit your site map and keep an eye on the crawl & index status for your site over the next week or so.

You can also use an advanced search operator to see how many pages google currently has indexed, then manually flip through the results as needed:

Head over to google and do a search for site:mywebsite.com ... ie:

As Proficient suggested, one of the reasons for this could be the "noindex, nofollow" code in your pages. Make sure to change it to "all" to allow search engines to index your pages. Additionally, to check how many pages of your site are indexed, you can use Google Webmaster Tools
