Google is aware of these reports and is investigating the issue

It Google appears to be having problems re-indexing new and fresh content. When I try to find new articles from sites that Google usually indexes in real time, such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and on this site, Google is not showing these stories or URLs in the index.

New articles not showing in Google. It is possible to try out some case searches yourself, by way of instance, do a website command hunt for new posts from the Wall Street Journal by looking for [] and filtering outcomes for the last hour.

All I see are a select number of arbitrary group pages, a few pages in another language, but no current stories. Here’s a screen shot:


An article published 30 minutes ago on The-Next-Tech is still not in the Google index. Here is a screenshot from the 4:30 pm within an hour of the article being published.

Google is still not showing any new articles from this site in search, when it was filtered to show only content within an hour. Google Search Console also states that the page is not indexed. It is rare for articles on The-Next-Tech not to be indexed within minutes of publication.

Google is not indexing

In addition, there is a problem with the URL inspection tool in Google Search Console, it just gives some incorrect feedback:

not indexing

Again? Google has had indexing problems previously however, the last time was this past year.

Update: At approximately 4:30pm, Google is currently indexing this report. However, it took nearly 50 minutes to be flashed, which is uncommon.

Google is aware:  Google is aware and the issue is being conveyed to the right people. Danny Sullivan from Google responded to a complaint about this on Twitter:

twitter indexing

Why we care: If you operate a website that is determined by visitors for new content as well as breaking stories, then you might be experiencing those traffic problems.

Google wants to index content fast and function breaking content instantly, so Google requires these bookmarking problems seriously. Hopefully things will return to normal with quite soon.
