Google needs some time before your site will appear in search results.


Then, make sure that in a settings you don`t have a tick near "Prevent from Indexing by Google".


In rare cases, if website is really poorly, Google just won`t show it.

first, check if your store is indexed or not.

if not, it'll take time to appear in SERPs.

To get your Shopify store URLs on Google, you can follow these steps:

3. Competition: Consider marketing and advertising efforts to stand out in search results.

Hi @Chagazz ,


This is Victor from PageFly - Landing Page Builder.

About your questions, I have some recommendations and hope this can help:


1. Check if your site is actually missing or just appear low in search results.

Sometimes the site is just showing low in the Search results, not totally missing. You can check this by using Google Search Console.



2. If your site is missing:


2.1 The site is in the Google index but still missing

There is an ability that your site has been indexed but some pages are not. You can try to add a sitemap to fix this.

2.2 The site hasn't been indexed

If your site is new (from 1 day to 1 week), Google needs some time to crawl or index your site. The waiting time can be 2 days or a few weeks. 

If your site is created more than 2 weeks, you can try to inspect your site by using the URL Inspection tool of Google. The tool will show you if the site has been indexed or not and the error if not. Your job now is to fix all errors that the tool found then Request index so that Google can crawl and index the site again.

Hope these recommendations can help you!

Hi @Chagazz

As noted by others here, it can take time for Google to rank your store, but you can help it along by submitting your sitemap to Google.

I would also recommend our SEO Checklist to make sure you're hitting all the right starting points.

Also, it's worth learning how you can look up keywords to help boost your site’s ranking.
