It's really strange to me. Now, you can't submit your links to Google indexing as we all used to earlier but now it could be a trouble for the webmasters that how can we submit our URL's to Google for indexing?
In the above article link that I shared tells that if you want to submit your webpage to Google indexing then you must have to log in with your own verified ownership Google's search console account linked with your website.
So it's a big issue to webmasters. And only Google has been done not by other search engines.
I thinks Google trying such things to stop spamming on Google search engine.

    This seems to be a reason BT; reducing spam.

    As always, focus on the fundamentals. Or have your client focus on the fundamentals. Google would not make changes to create an impossible scenario for ranking. Create and connect, be patient, note basic on-page SEO details, and you will be OK over the long haul.

    Set up a Google+ account and post about any pages you want indexed there. Google immediately crawls anything on Google+. Whether they actually index anything you link to from there or not depends on if it is worthy of being indexed.

      Not only Google but I have seen a lot of webmasters also post it on multiple social platforms and got their post indexed.



      I always felt the submissions tool was a way for Google to gauge spam but I feel they have done the right thing!

        Well, I thought the point was to get something indexed, not do anything related to SEO. How do you suggest that you will get something indexed? My way works and it works extremely fast. If you've got a better, faster way to get something indexed, let's hear it!

        Or is your problem that it is no longer a "public tool" and that you have to do it through a Search Console account associated with the website? (what an onerous chore). If that is a problem for you, you're definitely not cut out for this business. It's really hard to tell what you are trying to say. I sure hope the content that you are trying to get indexed is written better than the posts here, or I wouldn't hold out a ton of hope of it ever ranking, whether it gets indexed or not.

        It sure seems pretty stupid to post something, asking for help and then decide you know better than someone else who probably has at least decade more experience at this that you.

      WOW that's the news to me! I did it without knowing why I am doing that. Shall I do more often (Whenever I write a new blog post)?

    Good. It was stupid.

    If you needed to submit a URL to get it indexed, the URL was garbage anyhow.

    Thanks for the information. I think Apart from the google indexing and G+ sharing, it's better to work with Search Console. Navigate to Crawl Fetch as Google. And it's always beneficial to add your content to the websites which are indexed by google more often.

    Yes, but it's true, Google recently removed their instant search engine indexing tools from their server, that was really helpful for Indexing any new website and for fresh blog post.
    By Using https://www.google.com/addurl we were indexed our page but now it's showing
    https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url?pli=1

    What is the solution and how we can index?

    Now, manually we can't index our page or any url?
    Solution we have to put each and every url in our site map or need to generate dynamic sitemap for indexing URL.
    Now it's totally depends on google algorithm for indexing

    Maybe you people are just clueless....typical.

    Google NEVER had an instant index tool...or anything close.

    You submitted a url for consideration....if that.

    Nobody in their right SEO mind would EVER think you needed to or should submit a url to google.

    Like someone said.... put your url on most anything google crawls a lot...like google +, blogger, etc.

    Even your own friggin blog or website (yeah..what a concept!)

    If your url is not being indexed in a day or two by using normal internet methods...there is indeed something wrong with the page.

    You people are typical of someone who buys a domain...gets wordpress...and then boom...instant webmaster.

    Knowing nothing about how the internet, let alone google, work.

    Website Optimization has always been a long-term game.

    The amount of effort you are putting in towards SEO is directly related to the effectiveness of your work.

    In other words, If it takes you one minute to create a link, it will be a wasted minute because it won't do anything for your rankings. Google will simply ignore frail websites that do not contribute at all to the user experience.

    On the other hand, if earning a link required a lot of time/effort/resources, it will definitely bring a steady and long-term boost to your rankings. Such a link comes from websites that are well rooted in the network of other trusted sites. In this case, Google will have no problem finding and indexing it on its own.

    That said, having a possibility of manually submitting your websites is unnecessary.

    If you are submitting a weak website that is not being indexed for a long time, its Google's way of telling you that your site is crappy. Keep working on it and continue gathering quality information that would actually provide some benefit if somebody was to read it.

    If you have a strong and well-built website, you do not need to manually submit it because Google will find it soon if it did not do it already.

    Tools like Google's URL submission tool just promotes impatience.

    Relax and enjoy the process.
