Google Confirms a New Indexing BugPublished on Saturday, October 7th, 2023 by Direct Submit
Google Confirms Indexing Bug for new content being delayed in search. This means that the indexing of new content is being delayed in search results.
Google has said that is working on a fix.
Google has confirmed reports of an ongoing technical issue causing delays in indexing newly published web content.
In a post published to X on Thursday evening, Google’s Search Liaison announced that the company is actively working to identify the root cause of the problem.
However, Google didn’t provide an estimated timeline for resolving the issue.
The indexing delays mean that any content published on websites now through whenever the problem is fixed may not show up in Google search results right away.
Publishers can check the latest updates on this indexing issue via the Google Search Status Dashboard.
The dashboard will indicate when Google has successfully fixed the problem.
In the meantime, be aware that search visibility for new articles and other pieces of content will likely be reduced until Google corrects the underlying technical issue
