If you"re launching a website for the first time, you should first verify you own the site within Google Search Console. Then, submit it here -- select the "submit a sitemap" option once you lvà on this page.

If you have an existing site & are launching new pages ...

With a web tên miền already launched, you can still submit new pages for Google to lớn index and rank them accordingly. Anyone used lớn be able lớn vị this with a page they wanted crawled, whether they owned the page or not. Now, just as you would when launching a br& new website, you must be the URL"s owner lớn ask Google to re-crawl it.

If you own a webpage you"d like Google to re-crawl, you can bởi vì a few different things:

Submit an Updated Sitemap

As you can see above sầu, two sample Fetch requests have sầu been listed below the Fetch bar. The status of these fetches is "Partial," but once these fetches are complete, Google will assess their eligibility for reindexing. If the URL you"ve fetched qualifies, you"ll see a "Request Indexing" option appear where the red box is in the screenshot above. Select this option, and Google will begin the process of re-crawling và reindexing this webpage.

As stated earlier in this article, indexing requests can take anywhere from a day to a couple of weeks lớn complete. So, kiểm tra your Fetch as Google table periodically lớn see the status of your active indexing requests.
