Google: "Discovered - currently not indexed"

76 1 13


I have a question regarding Google indexing. When I go to the Google Search Console->URL inspection->LIVE TEST to check our blog articles (new and old) it says this: "URL can be indexed" (see the attached screenshot below).

However, when I open "GOOGLE INDEX" on the same page it says: "Discovered - currently not indexed" (see the attached screenshot below).

Our articles are from the last and this year, but none of them is indexed. Also we did request indexing for every article.

Does anyone know why Google might not want to index our articles? What can be fixed here?

Hi Irena,


Please see this Google documentation


"Discovered - currently not indexed: The page was found by Google, but not crawled yet. Typically, Google wanted to crawl the URL but this was expected to overload the site; therefore Google rescheduled the crawl. This is why the last crawl date is empty on the report."
