Why doesn't Google index articles on free blogging platforms?

Discussion in 'Google' started by Yez16, Feb 18, 2022.

    I post articles on such platform blogs:
    telegra.ph
    write.as
    rentry.co
    sites.google.com
    dev.to

    The result is null. Google simply does not want to index articles on such sites. I ordered the placement of links on them, also the result is zero. At the same time, I tried to transfer the article from this platform to a regular site by the authors and the lack of the ability to add to any person. And there the article immediately got into the index. It turns out they are littered with these sites and there is no point in adding them?

    Really? do you search your url from those 'unindexed' sites in google after few days and you can't find it still?

    Unfortunately, you need to force google to index those sites, not easy now.
    Two ways:
    1. Get a working indexing service.
    2. Build some links to those posts.

    Pages from this sites are indexed by Google:
    telegra ph ~5 900 000 pages are in index
    write as ~81 000 pages are in index
    rentry co ~27 000 pages are in index
    sites google com ~21 000 000 pages are in index
    dev to ~524 000 pages are in index
    But it's more difficult.

    Sometimes you have to wait quite a long time for the page to index.

    Well, Google never promises to index all the articles from any website. If you do a little research, you will find that even the best websites also have more than 20-30% of articles unindexed. Google has their own policy. The policy is simple "useful article".
    The sites you shared they also have premium packages where they provide good services. So it's not always Google's problem not to index. Maybe the site you are writing they want you to purchase their premium services to index and better business.
    If the site is totally free like Google Blogger then write useful articles and connect with the Google search console. After publishing any article submit it to Google to index it quickly. But sometimes Google takes 2-3 weeks to index it.

    It is not only those pages. New websites without any trust need a little bit longer to be indexed. In this way Google fight the high wave of spam pages. You just have to wait or optimize them with internal Links, backlinks and so on. But it takes a while.

    Submit them to an indexer or simply wait.

    I think this basically sum up your options (+ a 3rd one : Be patient)

    But sometimes if an article don't get indexed it's because of the bad quality of the article. Maybe you can edit the article to make it better / more complete ?

    Free hosted sites are getting harder to get indexed. Google will not even index blogger posts or google sites pages even though they are owned by Google. You need to force Google to get those pages indexed.

    Two ways you can do that. Build some backlinks to your posts from blogs/sites that get crawled often. Before buying any blog post from any site, check to see whether the most recent posts on the site are indexed or not. Only buy posts from sites where you find the most recent posts are indexed.

    Another way is to resort to some indexing service. It is difficult these days since none of the mass indexing services works anymore. If you can find some individual indexing service that works, that will help your site getting indexed.

    Yes, it is true. Blogger sites and Google sites are not getting indexed properly. I faced the same issue earlier and so had to quit from the platforms. WordPress is better.
