Hello All,

I created my shop months ago and still a simple search on google of "myff.com" comes back with an old indexed page that was a re-direct. I have submitted my sitemap multiple times, but nothing. I am hardly a Google Webmaster pro - what to do??

Hi Adrienne,

Britton here with the Shopify support team.

Aside from submitting your sitemap (which usually tends to be sufficient) you can use Google Webmasters Tools to directly ask Google to recrawl your site. Using the "Fetch as Google" tool explicitly asks Google to recrawl your site and can help in situations like this. You can find some instructions on how to do it here: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6065812?hl=en.

I hope that helps you get your indexing with Google updated!

Thanks for the quick response!

I *think* I've tried that already and this is what Google is coming back with (doesn't seem good):


Sitemap: http://myff.com/sitemap.xml

# Google adsbot ignores robots.txt unless specifically named!
User-agent: adsbot-google
Disallow: /checkout
Disallow: /carts
Disallow: /orders
Disallow: /11318392/checkouts
Disallow: /*design_theme_id*
Disallow: /*preview_theme_id*
Disallow: /*preview_script_id*

User-agent: Nutch
Disallow: /

User-agent: MJ12bot
Crawl-Delay: 10

Hey Adrienne , 

 

Your website is already indexed in Google. You can use the site:yoursite.com command to check the index status.
