Why is my site not showing up on google?

7 0 6

Hello, my new website scoutxsea.com is not showing up on google (I published the site a few days ago), even when I try looking up one of the blog posts with a longer, specific title. Never have had this issue before. Anyone have a solution?

Hey, @Jeremy-S1 

Google indexing can take some time for their engine to index your pages. The time it can take to index a website could be a matter of minutes to several weeks and even months. This is especially true when you are a brand new website. I ran a test to see exactly all the pages Google has indexed of yours and they have actually indexed two of your pages so far. The homepage and contact page: 

I would suggest Submitting your sitemap to Google. All Shopify stores automatically generate a sitemap.xml file that contains links to all your products, product images, pages, collections, and blog posts. This file is used by search engines like Google and Bing to index your site so that your store's pages appear in search results. Submitting your sitemap files to Google Search Console helps Google find and index pages on your site.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Hey Jeremy,

I have seen your website, and it is shown on Google. 

If your content is unique and relevant to a particular niche, Google may index your page. But if their database has better content than you, then Google may index their content first.

Advice: To improve your content, you can use statistics or unique content to boost your page.
