You might be asking how you can find your site on Google after posting a new content, and Jen Lee from Google’s Search Quality Team on YouTube says that you can determine if Google has displayed your site in the search results by doing a site search.
Here are the steps:
- Type the word “site,” colon and your domain name without spaces in the Google search bar. If you see your site, then it’s good.
- If there are few sites on display, make sure Google can crawl your content and delivers values to users. In cases like these, perhaps Google may have not yet located your pages yet so be patient.
- By expediting this procedure, add your content to Google through their tool at Google.com/submityourcontent.
- If nothing comes up on your search, one common cause of this occurrence is that your site could be blocking the crawlers called robots.txt file.
- If you purchased your domain, it might not be doing well because it contains spam or problematic content. If that’s the case, login to Google’s webmaster tools and verify your new site and file a reconsideration request noting the information.
- If your site is in the search results but your pages aren’t working well, remember that Google discovers new pages on your site by following links from page to page.
- To improve site navigation, you may add a navigational bar or menu.
