Are your articles suddenly getting unindexed?
Hello, thanks for listening to SEO tips today.
John Mueller says that this might be a quality issue.
“This is usually a quality issue & less of a technical one. Our algorithms might be looking at that section of the site or the site overall, & thinking it doesn’t make sense to index pages there.”
Additionally, Google reps have mentioned quite a bit over the last month that they don’t index everything they find – only the content that they think deserves to be indexed. Bing, it turns out, can spot low-quality content when it’s in the discovery phase, and doesn’t even crawl those pages to preserve bandwidth.
So if you feel like you have content that is not being crawled or indexed, you should review the content’s quality and the internal and external link signals you have to that content to see if you can improve its chance of being indexed.
Thanks for listening. Come back tomorrow for another SEO tip.
