Why Aren't URLS Getting Index

I run a ecommerce site and I had one of our product pages down-hidden- for 3-4 months, The product is back in stock and I built a few high quality links to it for low volume keywords but it's not showing in Google.

Search Console shows that 259 of 275 pages are index but aside from building these links, what can I do to get the URL index and why isn't google indexing it? My site was crawled successful on the 10/23 and 10/26 but it still isn't showing.

    Search Console data is usually weeks or months behind.

    Have you actually manually checked if the URLs are indexed in the Google search bar using the 'site:' modifier?

      I've searched "brand name and name of product" and it's not on the first 2 pages which in theory it should be

        Just pasted the full URL into google and it does NOT show up. What can I do? Yes, the page is visible and found when I search my site.

    Go to Google.com and in the search bar type:

    site:http://yourdomainname.com/whatever-p...re-looking-for

    Obviously, change the details to match your URL and be sure to use the proper WWW or non-WWW version.

    Do the URLs show up that way?

    You did say you just recently put the pages up. It's not entirely unusual for them to not be indexed after only a week or two.

      The product page was made live again over a month ago.
      I went in and did site:http://www.mydomain.com/what-i-am-looking-for

      and my url did NOT show up. I used the http, https, www and non-www version and it does NOT show up.

      I am extremely confused.

        Unfortunately, without seeing the specific URL, there is no other advice I can really offer.

    Go to Google webmaster tools
    Select the website.
    Click on "Crawl"
    Click "Fetch as Google"
    Paste and submit the URL

    Goto this url https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url and submit the url. This may solve the problem.
