Find out if your page is listed on Google
If you don’t think you’re getting enough traffic to a specific page, you can check that there are no search problems by using a new tool that’s just been added to Google’s experimental Search Console. Go to bit.ly/goosc453, sign in with your Google account and choose the website you want to look at in the ‘Search property’ section. Click ‘URL inspection’ and enter the web address in the search box. The results displayed below will tell you whether the page appears in Google’s index or not – and, if it doesn’t, will help you work out why.
