Hi, So I'm kinda new to creating sites etc. But i have created my site, got plenty of articles on it. verified im the site owner, submitted site map to google search console and bing.

Been about a week now and im not sure if its indexing

1. they are using my old favicon

2. they are using old titles for my articles and the dates are of the old article dates ( when i was testing etc)

3, when i do a site: "site.com" on google, a lot of results are displayed, but all the wrong meta description, wrong favicon (old one), titles mostly wrong, and some articles not displayed.

4, when i do the same for bing, only 3 articles are shown - same issues, old titles etc

I a complete novice using web tools and GSC so not really sure what to do on it to verify. i've used the URL inspector, it says my sites are indexed, but they just seem to be displaying the wrong information - mainly old information. same for bing.

can't find them when i do a search on google or bing

Do i just leave it for longer as its only been a week or resubmit sitemap or what? little lost sorry as im new to all this.

    They'll change when the pages of the site are crawled again.

    Leave it, they will change eventually or you can re submit

    Request a new indexing of your website by entering the url in the search bar at the top of the first page of Google search console and check a few hours later...

    In this way everything will be fine on Google, for Bing don't waste your time, 95% of the traffic comes from Google...

    Yes, they'll do the job.. only "they" (Google) decide when exactly

    I've been trying to get them index some of my pages, sometimes it's instant and sometimes it takes days
