I have an old site that I have recently updated and submitted cml and php sitemaps to webmaster tools, however 2 weeks later it still states 0 discovered URLS and the pages that are indexed are old and no longer showing anything.

Anyway for adding getting the pages indexed? There are two sites in one the normal site and the affiliate shopping site but only the normal site is indexed (old pages)

I have a robots.txt it is a wp site and I have added the sitemaps to the robots.txt also.

    Wait for a week or bit more. It takes time to index. Don't worry. Meanwhile check the seo of your pages. Check the titles, specially content to avoid duplicate content issue plus check the image size and alt text stuff.

      I think that two weeks is already a long term and waiting won`t help at this point. There must be a problem that prevents OP`s website from indexing.

    Check in the backend if you have implemented the "Noindex" tag or blocked your website through Robots.txt. If all good then fetch your website on Google Search Console and also submit your site on some pinging sites.

    Not sure but it also quite possible that Due to Google penalty Your site has been removed!

  • I think ping sites can help in indexing a website, try it once.

      They are web sites that supposedly get your site or new page into search engines and crawled quickly. Not sure how good they are but in the past they were mention here on the forum. Here is one service that is free https://pingler.com/ they have a paid version but not have no idea if it is worth it., One thing about pingler they do bing, yahoo, aol, and more

      Also you can find more sites on google that seem to do the same thing just type ping my website into google.
      Hope that helps.

    There might be multiple reasons why your website is not indexed in Search Engines. First, you might have added HTML noindex-nofollow meta tag on the website. Check in the website source and if you found <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW"> then convert it to <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="INDEX, FOLLOW">.

    Second, you might disallow the site indexing through the robotos.txt file. Check if you have added something like "disallow: /" in the robotst.txt file. If you found it then replace it with "allow: /".

    Third, there might be some other technical issues on the website. For that, you need to check your website in the Google Search Console tool. If your website is penalized by Google, you can find the message in Google Search Console. If your website is penalized, take the necessary steps to remove the penalty.

    Add another post or page, create some new content, Google likes to index sites with fresh content, the spider just can't ignore it.

    Google is updating it algorithms very frequently. Now Google takes atleast 24-48 hours to index the website. However, you should check if you have placed any noindex and nofollow tag into the website pages

    Also, it may be useful to run a Site Audit through Ahrefs/Semrush or at least with Screaming Frog (free for up to 500 URLs). They might detect some serious onsite issues that might have something to do with this. Even if not, it would be useful to discover any serious issues.

    I suggest wait for more few days may be crawler are not crawl your page yet. but it's takes a lot of time and google webmaster tolls show that your page crawled but not index that means somewent have wrong on you're pages that hit google alogritm and google can't index in their library.
    plagrism is most common issue to not index a page, but you can a check all factors like title, description, image formate, tags.

      Not true. Google does "not" care about plagiarism at all. Show us one official Google Webmaster article that says otherwise!

    You need to wait till the website is crawled by the Google bots. Some times Google takes time to crawl the website.

    There is a single formula to index any site at search engine. Just update or add more content on your site weekly basis but make sure it should be useful content.

    Don't worry. Just wait for one more week. In the meantime, check your website backend. If you have marked your site as "No-Index", then goggle will never index your link. You also can try different ping websites. Do one thing copy and paste the URL in Google search bar and check the results manually. You will get the update of your index status.

    Do you check your Robots.txt File properly?? If not, You may Check your Robots.txt file by Google Search Console and recheck your Sitemap too. if there is a noting block then use ULR inspection in Google Search Console to index your pages.
