Does Google Know
Your Site Exists?
Learn how to find if your site is in Google’s search results already, and if it’s not, how to get it included.
Check that your site is indexed
To see if Google already knows about your site, do a “site:” search, like this: [ site:example.com ].
- If pages from your site show up, your site (or a part of it) is already in Google’s index.
- If your site doesn’t show up, and it used to, it may be in violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. Our guidelines are designed to help webmasters create useful, Google-friendly sites that are good for users and the web.
- If it’s showing up, but pages appear lower than they used to, see possible reasons why.
Keep in mind that this indicates that Google has now found your content. It’s up to you (and a little luck with the Google gods) to do the SEO/SEM work required to move your content up the search engine results.
It used to be that we needed to tell Google about new sites. However, for the last year or more, Google is finding most new sites within the first 24-48 hrs!
