Why is My Website Not Showing in Google Search?

Does it feel like you’ve done everything right, but your website is still nowhere to be seen in Google’s search results?

You’re not alone! Many businesses need help to get their websites to rank well in search engines.

Generally speaking, several factors can affect why website’s don’t rank on Google, including:

  1. Google has not yet indexed your website (too new)
  2. Your website isn’t optimized for search engine crawling
  3. Your keyword market is very competitive
  4. Your website has “no index” tags
  5. Your website has been penalized and removed from Google

But did you know Google doesn’t add all submitted URLs to their index?

Plus Google does not make predictions or guarantees about when or if submitted URLs will appear in their index. And if your new website is crawled, it can take up to two weeks to be pushed out to the index.

How to Analyze Your Website’s Search Performance

If your website is struggling to appear in Google search results or experiencing a decline in performance, try analyzing its search performance using one of the following tools.

#1. SEO Mechanic SEO analyzer tool is a comprehensive and user-friendly online tool designed to evaluate and analyze the search engine optimization (SEO) performance of a website.
#2. Semrush is a popular and widely used all-in-one digital marketing platform that provides a comprehensive set of tools for SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

Why Search Ranking Matters

Most people don’t click past the first page of search results. According to this study, the top listing in Google’s organic search results receives 33 percent of the traffic, compared to 18 percent for the second position. The traffic only degrades from there.

So it’s not enough for your site to be indexed by Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

Why Sites Don’t Rank in Search Results

Google is tricky. Below are common reasons (in detail) why your site (WordPress, Wix, and Squarespace) isn’t ranking and how it appear on Google search:

1. Google has not yet indexed your website yet

If you want to quickly tell if your website is in the Google index, you can do a Google Search for “site:yourwebsite.com”.

Check out the video below for step-by-step instructions executing a “site:yourwebsite.com” search.

2. Your website is too new

Did you build and launch your new website? Typically it can take up to four weeks to appear in search engine results. While we might be accustomed to getting things online quickly, search engine indexes can be relatively slow. So sit tight, wait, and learn more about search engine algorithms before you get too nervous.

Sometimes it can take a week or more for a search engine to update search results. This is because your website is new and has no inbound links.

First, create an account on Google Search Central. Google Search Central, formerly Google Webmasters, is here to help the right people view your content with resources to make your website discoverable to Google Search.

When you register and point Google to your sitemap.xml URL, you can request them to re-crawl your URLs. However, there are so many requests that the feature doesn’t always work immediately (especially if you have a new or large site).

3. Your website has “no index” tags

You can use custom code to tell search engines not to index your site or specific pages. If you or someone who designed your site added this code, that would explain why it’s not appearing in search results.

4. Your website isn’t optimized for search engine crawling

Once you submit your website to a search engine, a spider is sent to your site to crawl it for content. These spiders don’t view your site as a visitor would.

They scan your site for meta content, keyword saturation, relevant content, and many other factors.

Therefore, you must consider what content search engines see on your Web pages.

5. Your keyword market is very competitive

Search engines help millions of worldwide users navigate the internet and find specific content amid the billions of websites.

Ensure you target a less competitive keyword market to attract your consumers.

6. Not all keywords are equal

It’s easy to rank for irrelevant keywords in search engines. It’s hard to rank for keywords that are profitable for your business.

The difficulty is twofold, determining the most profitable keyword for your business and two having the knowledge to move you to Page 1 ranking.

7. Your website has been removed from Google

Google may temporarily or permanently remove sites from its index and search results if it believes it is obligated to do so by law if the sites do not meet Google’s quality guidelines or for other reasons, such as if they detract from users’ ability to locate relevant information.

Here are the different ways Google may remove your site from search results:

  • Deindexed – When your domain is completely removed from Google. Also known as Banned.
  • Penalized – When your domain or page still exists, but none of your pages can be found through direct search queries. This penalty can be automatic through the Google algorithm or manually applied by a Google Quality Engineer.
  • Sandboxed – Your domain or page wasn’t Deindexed or Penalized, but the traffic you were getting from Google suddenly dropped dramatically.

If your site is blocked from our index because it violates our quality guidelines, Google may alert you using Search Console.

Suppose you receive a notification that your site violates our quality guidelines. In that case, you can modify it so that it meets these guidelines, then submit your site for reconsideration.

8. Search engines are unable to crawl your site

WordPress comes with a built-in feature that allows you to instruct search engines not to index your site. This feature is automatically enabled when you launch a new WordPress website. So it would be best if you manually disabled it. All you need to do is visit Settings » Reading and check the box next to Search Engine Visibility option.

How to Get Your Website To Show Up on Google

You want your website to rank on the first page (typically with ten website listings). Depending on your business, you must employ search engine optimization and SEO strategies to improve your ranking.

1. Conduct a thorough SEO audit

To ensure more tremendous success in the future, now is the time to conduct an SEO audit of your website. This will give you a clear view of where you stand regarding the following:

  • On-site optimization
  • Off-site optimization
  • Keyword selection

And that is just the start. Learn how to do a manual audit here: https://www.seomechanic.com/how-to-perform-seo-audit/

2. Add keywords to your website content

Keywords can be a single word or a short phrase of up to four or five words. These should be terms that are relevant to your site and that people are likely to use when they search Google.

They need to be relevant to what your site is about.

3. Use meta-tags to add more keywords

Meta-tags are hidden code — visitors to your website don’t see them, but the Google search engine “bots” that scan your site will pick them up.

You can add these meta-tags to your site if you have a web design program or know how to code HTML.

4. Find keywords that aren’t overly competitive

We suggest you use Google’s free Keyword Planner to figure this out.

This keyword research tool lets you gauge the popularity of particular search terms and the competition you face by using them.

Highly competitive keywords can have tens of thousands of websites fighting over them, so you are less likely to wind up on page one of Google if you pick these.

5. Seek out backlinks

Web pages that contain links back to your site: A significant factor for search engines is quality organic backlinks. It’s what search engines are looking for.

If multiple websites link back to your website, Google gives your page higher credibility and search ranking.

6. Create a listing for your site on Google My Business

This tip is for brick-and-mortar businesses with physical locations.

Google My Business links your site to a map listing, so when people look for your business or search using keywords related to your business, they will find a Google map listing and can click through to your website for more information.

7. Have content that is relevant to your business

Use articles or other material specific to your products and services. Don’t use filler that is only loosely related.

Google’s algorithm ranks sites with original, relevant content more highly than those with content repeated elsewhere.

8. Analyze your technical SEO

My free SEO report is an excellent resource to baseline specific URL search engine performance. We also give you a long checklist for improving your website’s SEO.

Bonus tip: SEO Maintenance

Once you’ve optimized your website to get to that crucial first page of Google, you can’t stop; SEO must always be managed.

As soon as you’ve climbed to page one ranking, your competitors will be after you with their SEO strategies, seeking to knock you off the top.

Or customers might start searching with different keywords.

The bottom line: Your website will need continual SEO review to maintain your search engine ranking.

  15. Charlie says:

    Hey Hrishi, My advice would be to check your email for messages from Google Webmaster Tools and review your analytics and statistics. There was a lot of fluctuation in search results the last few weeks. You can always ask me more detailed questions in my forum. ~ Charlie

    Thank u Sir for your kind response. I have checked my email many times but no mails from Google webmaster regarding this. Even there is such message in my Google search console.

  17. Chris says:

    Hi Charlie! Thank you for your post, as well as some of others from your blog! They have been very helpful! If it is not too much trouble may I ask you a question?

    I am helping out with a new website. The website is less then two months old and thus has the fitting domain and page authority associated with a new domain.

    However, for some reason our spam score, according to MoZ is a 9. This seems odd, because we only advertise through social media, and do so fairly successfully (one post every week or so & professionally edited pictures). Our website does not have a blog, yet. So, I was wondering what google is punishing our site for.

    Currently if you type in our company name, the website url will not show up first in Google. But, it will in yahoo, AOL, Bing, Duck Duck Go etc.

    We do not have any major backlinks at this point — actually I do not believe we have any, but our website should still come up because the name is unique — as it does in every other search engine except for Google.

    Any idea what could cause such a high spam score? Or is there a reason our website is not showing up as the first result (our facebook page shows up first). The name is not competitive at all.

    Thank you for your help and keep up the good work!

  19. Hector Jayat says:

    It is in fact difficult to know if google desire to help you or not, because if you enter a long tail keyword like this, and google shows 1,5678,908 results and yuo see that only 1page and 2ndd page shows website with that exact keyword and the from page 3 and on start to divage and stat showing nonsense results,
    For instantce, let’s say you are lokking for a long tail keyword like this:
    a b c, then right after 3rd page, and some time even from page 2 you start to see thing like:
    a X b c
    a XY b
    a XY c
    a XYZ c

    is where you say what is the sense of google to shows you 1,5678,908 is only about 20 results makes sense and the other 1.5Million is only garbage.
    To be honest I will never understand go the google algorithm works. I’m tired of that

  20. Charlie says:

    Hey Hector,

    I know what you mean! Depending on the search phrase, often times Google will shut down its results after 10 pages. Though if its a hyper competitive industry it will trail on for many many pages. At the end of the day the most relevant results are on the first couple of pages. Are you having issues with your site ranking deeper in results?


  21. I made seo on my wordpress site while searching my keywords my home page link willbe displaying not that post link why what was the problem with.
    my blog is jumbletalkies.com

  22. Charlie says:

    Hey Avinash,

    Its possible your post and homepage are targeting the same keywords. Hope that helps!


  23. James says:

    My question is how come I have multiple posts on the first page of Bing and Yahoo, but nothing on the first 10 pages of google??

  24. Charlie says:

    Hey James, Bing and Yahoo function under a very similar algorithm while Google is completely unique. There are more ranking factors involved in Googles versus Bing and Yahoo. Hope that helps! – Charlie

  25. Hello Sir,

    You have written a Nice and Detailed post . But I want to ask a question.

    Why my blog suddenly disappeared from Google search engine results. They haven’t send me any information or warning related to policy violation. I have Tried to submit it again and I have Fatched it as Google but still it is Disappeared from results.

    What should I do Please reply me ASAP


  26. Charlie says:

    Hey Abhishek, At the moment Google is going an update, so its possible it will be back in results soon. but the best thing to do is to wait a few days before getting nervous. Also I would avoid repeated fetching. Hope that helps! – Charlie

  27. Amy says:

    You seem rather knowledgable so I thought I would ask if you know what is wrong with my website on google search. I used to have an https: because I worked through wordpress.com who automatically assigns you one. moving to self-hosted now, I only have http: I have installed analytics through monster insights (not sure if that is relevant). I don’t understand why, but when I search for my website in google search only an https: version comes up and it won’t let visitors in because it isn’t an https: website. Any ideas?

  28. Charlie says:

    Hey Amy,

    It can take a long time for Google to update your site in their index. A quick fix is buying an SSL cert form your current hosting provider. Thus its a moot point to wait for the reindex as all the links will work. Thanks for stopping by!


  29. I would like to know what the problem is with my wix site. It doesn’t get found on google search. I have tried to do all that I read up online on SEO. Including using your SEO engine to check and then do as advised, but the result is still the same. I am already indexed on google. But nothing yet.

    What can I do or is six not google friendly?

    There’s some impressions and a few clicks in my webmaster tools console report. But still it’s not showing in serp results for the main keyword.
    I think maybe it’s because of the website age. Does the age of the website impact on seo?

  41. Charlie says:

    Hey Guys,

    Yep! Age of a domain is a factor. But, if its not showing up, it could be because its too new.

    I am new to SEO and trying my best to understand with my small business(service). I constantly see people having issues with scam reviews or something of the sorts. I was trying to find ways around using google places or such. Maybe you can ease my mind to dive in.
    Also I hear a lot in creating blogs to stay relevant with new material to rank higher. Is this the only way of doing so? Someone I talked to said what Google is really looking at is being listed and fresh new content. Is this the best way to look at SEO?
    Like I said I have been reading a lot and trying to catch on, but make the right moves.

    My company is Pantiepads, and we produce period underwear. A few weeks ago when we indexed it I searched for Period Panties or period underwear and would see my page on google page 6 or 9. Now it’s completely not showing up at all when I search for those words.

    I moved my website from http to https in mid of Feb 2017; the ranking of some keywords recovered within two months but from last week, my website showing abnormal behavior. All keywords rank were dropped and went out of 100/200, after four days the ranking revert but again it went down after 3 days. I am unable to understand why this has been happening with me. I received no penalty etc from google nor I made any SEO activity.

    Hey Helen, It should bounce back after your site is updated through the search index. While securing your site might seem like just adding an extra s to http. It actually is a bigger deal. Don’t give up! – Charlie

    How much time a new site take to appear in search engine.

  86. Charlie Rose says:

    Depends on your market an the search term you are trying to rank for. In general your site should be indexed quickly but it takes time for search engines to assign a 1 to 1 association in regards to specific search terms.

  87. eDataEntry says:

  88. Alvin says:

    Good day Charlie, your article has helped clear lots of my doubts. Wonderful information shared.

    I’ve followed your guidelines in identifying why is my website not being indexed by the search engine (mainly Google) but last I checked my website wasn’t penalised or anything as it is still very new.

    Is it because my domain was used by some other parties who abused it before me as I found multiple spam-looking keywords when I registered for Google Search Console.

    Hi Charlie,

    Thanks for the detailed article.

    I think targeted traffic is what we need to grow business so even if website is showing from non sale oriented keywords it’s not going to help alot.

    Dear SEO Mechanic,
    I had worked on a client’s website and it disappeared from Google, but finally it performed well on coming back. I think sometimes Google is re-organizing how they can serve the pages better.

    Thanks for the insight.

    Hi, Nice post but could you help me with my issue please? My website got hit by Penguin 2.0 in 2013 and a disavow file was submitted but the site never recovered, anyway, now we do get loads of traffic from long tail keywords but nothing from the main ones. In fact the homepage never shows up in search results for our main keywords. However, if I change content on the homepage, it starts showing up at position 70-80 but only lasts for a few hrs and then vanishes again.

    Is the penalty still going on?

    Hey Charlie,

    Thanks for your good suggestion. When I submitted my web link on: “http://www.google.com/addurl/” this box, after 30 minutes later I saw my site on Google result page for my 2 targeted keywords. But after 10 hours later my site again vanished from search result. I optimized my all pages by using my targeted keywords. Can you please help me how can make it visible again?
    Note that; my site is visible for other keyword that is not my targeted.


  134. Charlie Rose says:

    Sometimes you get a short lived bump. But you won’t hold the position unless your site has the authority to do so. Then you go through the slow crawl of moving up up from the bottom. But its a good sign that you were indexed. Also, if you have time sign up for our SEO forum and ask more detailed questions. Link: https://www.seomechanic.com/register/.

    Question, I recently updated this site http://coolgadgetstobuy1.blogstop.com/ which was ranked 4th page in google however since i updated it and created more links, it disappeared . Whats going on?

    Charlie, Great post! Thanks for the helpful information. I was curious – our site https://www.ceo-search.com is not ranking for the keyword “CEO Search” I know this is a competitive keyword, but I would have thought that it would at least show up in search results. I get nothing even when I type in the full URL in Google. Any ideas? The website is a few months old. Thanks for the help!

  151. Charlie Rose says:

    Hey Mike, How long has your site been online?

  152. Emman says:

    I am trying to rank my first site. http://www.luxuryrealestatebrokercalifornia.com
    It has about 300 pages but after two weeks , only 3 pages are indexed.

    Is that long to indexed a page?


  153. Charlie Rose says:

    Hey Emman,

    That is a competitive industry but also for new sites and domains it can take months to see good indexing. Unfortunately its not instantaneous.

    Try to manual ping search engines when you post new articles or use an auto ping plugin like pushhub to boost search engine crawls on your blog

  159. I’ve been experimenting lately with deep internal linking of my articles published some two years ago, and most especially editing many of them to reflect my current voice on the topic.

    I started doing this on my first blog which I started some four years less 3 months ago, and have take this practice too a new blog I just started recently.

    The results has been nothing short of amazing, bounce rate reduce drastically and from what I observe, search traffic has been improving too.

    I’ll see what I can make out the rest tips you shared in this guide, hopefully I can handle some of them. Really, they’re not basic SEO techniques, these are advance tactics……but I sure get some muscles too…

    Thanks for always leaving nothing out, you’re kind of big deal really.

  162. I suggest you remove your site on the google then you submit it again. Think this simple me method will work for your.
    I once had that issue and i did the same and it worked right away.

  163. Charlie Rose says:

    Nice insight Kombo. Depending on the severity and size of the site this can help. Either way once you remediate the spam issue your ranking will improve in Google and other search engines. It’s during the infection period when you are going to be removed.

  164. Very Helpful Article. But the problem is my website is showing in google search but all the new pages i am making like sub pages or different pages and after i make i submit to google and i fetch as google then i request indexing but after some time when i search in google i can not find my page listed there and it shows error. Can someone help me in fixing the issue ?

    Looking forward for kind support.

  165. Charlie Rose says:

    If the pages were recently published or targeting similar keywords it might not show them right away. How long ago did you create the pages?

  166. Chris says:

    Non of these seems to apply to me. I have used google webmasters tool to fetch the site (including internal pages) and requested for index. Only the homepage (which was indexed when the domain was parked) is showing on google search and it is still showing “this domain is parked by godaddy…”

    The site URL is https://www.teeground.com

    Do you have any idea why this might be so?


  167. Charlie Rose says:

    How long ago did you launch your site?

  168. Chris says:

    That should be about 2 weeks ago.

    I noticed something interesting though; when I search the site with the query I normally use (which is teeground.com) the old result shows up, but when I search the full URL or use site: operator, the site shows up with the correct title tag and meta description, along with other pages that have been index.

    It seems Google is caching their SERP with regards to search queries, and this could also mean that it takes a long time for them to purge their cache and update with the correct data.

  169. Charlie Rose says:

    Yes it can take some time. Especially with new websites or one’s with very low authority. From a consumer standpoint the internet is instantaneous. But from the business side it can be very slow. Check out this blog post on how Google’s Algorithm works. It’s a light read.

  204. Charlie Rose says:

    Give it at least two months if its a fresh business and domain name. It takes time for Google to crawl and index a site and then assign pages to specific search indexes. How many pages does your site have?

  205. Thanks. It has four ‘pages’, but our WordPress template has ‘FAQ’ and ‘Documentation’ which look like pages when you browse. We have lots of files in our File Manager that we hyperlink to from various pages.
    How it is possible for “site:ncl-mon.nhs.uk minutes” yields many more hits than the CSE? Surely it is doing the same thing?

  206. Charlie Rose says:

    Hey Andrew, Please share your domain name again. Or confirm your site is: ncl-mon.nhs.uk This thread is getting a bit confusing.

  213. My business partner’s wix website suddenly stopped showing in Google searches a couple weeks ago. We did a SEO on wix and were informed that indexing was successful. It also shows now using command “site:www.bettyfox.net”

    Is there still a delay until Google search again lists it? It still doesn’t show up.

  214. Charlie Rose says:

    yes it can take weeks to get indexed and if the site is really large it can take months. Sit tight!

    It actually helps me a lot…
    Nice work…

  220. Hi Charlie,
    I was bothering you a couple of months ago but my issues still has not resolved. Do you have any idea why google search restricted by site “site:ncl-mon.nhs.uk” picks up everything in my website (therefore Google has indexed our site), however my CSE misses nearly everything?
    A worked example is 6 hits if you google for “site:ncl-mon.nhs.uk degludec” but 0 hits if you type “degludec” into our CSE https://cse.google.com/cse/publicurl?cx=003056909452703581833:pofpqrwrutm

    Does this seem odd to you?

    Thank you for the this extremely informative post. I’m new to off-page SEO and I’ve been trying for the past months to rank the site I’m working for http://www.hostelbay.com but I find it extremely difficult. I’ve tried several techniques and keywords, though I’m starting to believe that if the industry is very competitive then it is very unlikely to manage and get it to the first page. Please advise on how to win the competition. We’ve also created an exclusive product and still it is very hard to bring it first. I really feel frustrated with this situation :/

    So, it seems I need to go to University just to get a damn page up. Porn sites seem to have no problems getting indexed, or seen. Seems google has it’s priorities all messed up. Weeks to index a new site ? When I submitted my website, it was there 15 min later. Mind you, it’s not shown up in google search since. And why is it indexed in 3 other search engines if it’s so bad?, and ranked No. 4 ?. And how come I always have a different page show in google search, anything but the INDEX. Just a few Questions.

  246. Charlie Rose says:

    Google takes longer and has more requirements than other search engines. A lot of SEO is based on trust which is fostered over time (not just content). ~ Charlie

  260. Charlie Rose says:

    How long has your site been online?

  261. Alex says:

    My site (http://www.lazyladx.com/) is pretty new around 2-3 months old, but the content is comparatively more and I am getting a good amount of traffic through Facebook with the help of influencers. I knew that search traffic will be pretty low as the content is not related to search queries, but I never expected that it will be almost 0%. Few of my links appear in the search result but only if it already had more than 5K views and even that on page 2 of Google. I have already implemented most of the tips mentioned here. I guess just have to wait for more time.
    That being said, Just wanted to know what should be the next course of action to increase search traffic and appear higher in search result?

  262. Charlie Rose says:

    Hey Alex, Just keep publishing relevant content, building backlinks and targeting specific keywords. But in the beginning waiting is a big part of the SEO process. ~ Charlie

  263. Álvaro says:

    My problem in my site is that some times i try to rank pages with new article on google and do not work …I mean,the new articles do not appear on google search engine crawling.

    I don’t know what happens because the URL is indexed by google. I can find the pages ranked on Bing and Yahoo search Engine , but not on Google. Can you help me about the matter?

    My site has been online for 2 years.

    Very useful post. Thank You !

  264. Charlie Rose says:

    Thanks for the comment! Is your issue with really new content or old content as well? ~ Charlie

  265. Hello Charlie Rose bro.
    I’m confused on my blogger site. I created a blogger site. My blogger site is not working properly in google, I have researched my keyword and chosen low comparative kw. I have also submitted in webmaster tools, analysis, generated sitemap for my blogger site with google website.

    I hope you would be kind enough helped me.
    Thanks for reading
    Note: This is my first comment without social site. You’re really luck. Ha Ha Ha

  266. oh Sorry.
    Can I do my blogger site optimized and get top rank by competing with paid site?

    Created before 10 days but google has been submitted 5 days ago.

  269. Poppy says:

    thanks for the info. great site and information.

  270. My problem is ONLY with Google. My site is indexed with Google and has been for 15 years now. A couple of years ago Google decided my website’s homepage was worthless. For many years I ranked in the top 10 for the search term “St Croix” on Google. I currently rank in the top ten for my main keyword, “St. Croix” on every other search engine. On Google, my home page doesn’t even come up in the top 500 results for St Croix, and that’s what the whole website is about!

  271. Charlie Rose says:

    Hey Kent! Thanks for the comment. Sounds like you have a penalty buried somewhere with Google. It could be form a bad link profile or outbound links on the site. When did this first happen? ~ Charlie

    my website is not showing on google search results. please help me.

  273. John Sloane says:

    Good article.
    I think I have a problem and it is that my website on TrafficTravis shows 100’s of website backlinks from one competitor who incorporated my domain name by simply adding a “my” in front of it.
    All other tests are fine so this is all I can think of. Change articles daily and so on.
    Can this be the issue although all those backlinks do not show at Google only at TrafficTravis.

  280. Vlad says:

    Hi Charlie.

    Thank you very much your thorough post. This is very useful info to me.

    However, have you had the experience where you’ve got a page that ranks on the 1st page for some queries and it suddenly disappears – and say you change some letter casings in your query and it appears again?

    Today I searched from several computers, with different profiles, and with/without incognito on, and from some of them the result would not appear at all and on some it was 2nd or 3rd.

    Like I said, it was from incognito as well, and sometimes only the letter casing for the exact same query mattered.

    Do you have any info on this?

    Looking forward to hearing your input!

    Best regards!

  281. Charlie Rose says:

    Hey Vlad, Was it a new page that you published? ~ Charlie

  282. This is a very useful website. This article is really helpful. Thank you so much for sharing this great knowledge.

    I just create a website about two days old and have one post only. I submitted sitemap through Search Console but still can’t see my website in Google search. Is that normal?

    Yes totally normal. It can take up to 8 weeks to start seeing traction in search engines. ~ Charlie

    No it was not. Some pages go as far as 2014.

    It does not happen with only one page, but multiple. The blog has about 800 posts with 1000+ words each.

    Best Regards,

    Nice blog, many people wonder why suddenly their website went out of Google, I think you gave answer from every angle which can help beginners. Thanks

  290. Srikanth says:

    Try to add more content pages with related keywords, not too competitive though. As Charle wrote in this post, competition also a major factor to think while preparing keywords.

  291. Abu Zafor says:

    It was really helpful reading. I am Struggling such issue with my new website which is 3 weeks old. Now I realize It’s not appearing on the google search using keyword because of “Brand New Website”. It would be great if you take a look of my website and do a quick review in one sentence.


  292. Charlie Rose says:

    Hey Abu, It takes search engines a bit of time in the beginning to analyze and index your site. Give it some time and keep writing content. ~ Charlie

    Hi Charlie,

    That’s really an interesting article that perfectly indicating the important ranking factors that needs to be focused if the website is not ranking on Google.

  294. Maya says:

    hey Charlie,

    i am working on a wordpress theme. Did a lot of off page work with target keywords blogging etc but URL is not ranked with that target keywords except that one “car classified theme” only.
    my other target keywords in which my URL haven’t appear in search results from the beginning e.g
    “Automotive WordPress Theme”
    “Car Dealer Theme”
    when i add “classified” with target keyword they appear on top 2 3 positions in google
    “Automotive Classified WordPress Theme” which is actually not a keyword, have no searches
    what could be the reason????
    i hope you understand my problem

    can you please checkout my Url, its content and specify the main reason.? it will be a great support from you sir
    will be thankful!

  295. laurent says:

    Good Evening,

    in my website name in the Google search engine i don not see
    my website link there any more I only see the google my business
    ad and have to type out my website in the browser to go to my website.
    Can you kindly advise the reason for this.

  296. Mimi says:

    Hi there. Such a great article. We have been on google for about 2 months with this website and it doesn’t seem we have started getting any organic results. We pay for google shopping ads( which does wonders) as well as display ads (which are nice and cheap), and we are in a very competitive market. We were wondering since we are at almost 100 website visits per day, how do we could optimize to get on their organic page? We understand the first page would be pushing it this early, but I think the only way to see our page now is by putting our business name in google or when our ads populate. We would love to know when we will stop paying for every sale we make..

  297. Charlie Rose says:

    Give it time it takes a while to start seeing your website in search results.

  298. Charlie Rose says:

    Sounds like you are making great progress. But give it some more time before worrying too much. just keep making content.

  301. Maya says:

    please answer my question as well sir

  302. Charlie Rose says:

    It could be for a number of reasons but mostly due to content or age of page. Beef up your on-page content and give it a bit of time. It looks like you are trying to rank a Themeforest page so not sure of how much control you have to make granular changes. ~ Charlie

  303. Maya says:

    yes i am talking about the themeforest link, one of the SEO expert suggest me to change content and remove classified word from it, i did it and change all the content but no results. can you please check it out and suggest any other changes in content as per best practice.
    will be grateful.

  327. Thank you sir it was a great piece of content, but What are some factors that google uses to ban a site my content is copy paste content so is this one of the factor that google uses to penalize my site. and how can we know that is our site banned or penalized by google.

  328. Charlie Rose says:

    Besides being notified by Google, through Search Console, its a bit of an investigation process. The best thing to always focus on is useful and original content.

  329. I have a problem that is somewhat different than you. My site appears in direct search. But in google analytics, I find that visitors come to my site from Facebook only. Not from a search result. Can someone please explain this?

  336. is my site is under crawl

  337. Charlie Rose says:

    Sounds like your site is relatively new and still being indexed. Has it launched in the last few months?

  338. Charlie Rose says:

    Probably still being crawled. Unless its older than 3 months. Then something is probably wrong. Check out this list of Common SEO Mistakes.

    Hi Charlie,

    Recently, we revamp a new website for my client. My question based on indexing while searching the brand name on the Google, my client site not showing except few old URL’s. I submitted Robots, txt file, sitemap and other essential stuffs so can you guide me what is the reason behind this?


  340. […] Indexing throughout the internet is not universal. Because of technological innovations, they have improved the frequency of their results over the years. However, each site is different. […]

  341. Charlie Rose says:

    When did you launch the site?

  342. Charlie Rose says:

    Glad you found it useful!

  343. Ray Cheselka says:

    Hi Charlie!
    Great article. It’s tough with all of the content out there to make something unique on this topic, but you crushed it.

    I recently wrote a post about a specific case I had with a MIVA website. There was a noindex x-robots-tag at the server level, something I hadn’t seen before. I ended up finding it through Search Console, requesting Googlebot to fetch it.

    I thought you may be willing to add this to the noindex tag section with a note that it could be at the server level to help users experiencing an issue do more research. I walk through some of the things I looked at to identify the issue, and noted my solution.

    If not, you may enjoy the read if you stumble upon this issue in the future. I’ll be keeping an eye out for more of your posts!

    Have a great week!


  344. Charlie Rose says:

    Hey Ray great insight and article. Next time we edit the piece I’ll see what I can do about making it a resource link. How fast did the problem resolve once you repaired it?

  345. Ray Cheselka says:

    Thank you Charlie, I really appreciate that.

    Once we got that X-robots-tag off of there, it started appearing in branded search almost immediately. Non-branded search phrases started ramping back up after a day or so.

    Although that’s great, their site was still noindexed for a bit. I’m eager to see how much of a setback this will be when comparing historical data, and how long it will take to get them back up to par. On the bright side, that will probably result in another blog post! haha


  346. Charlie Rose says:

    Technical SEO errors like that are the hardest to find sometime. But its also something that should be non existent unless you are doing some really custom development. Kudos on tracking it down What made you decide to look on the server?

    Have a great day thanks again

  361. Charlie Rose says:

    Yes thats the right thing to do. The common misconception is that your site shows up immediately. Unfortunately that is not the case. It can take as long as 4 weeks before you see any movement in SERPs.

  362. francis says:

    Since panda and penguin updates, seldom small websites ranks. You will notice that majority of your searches first page are amazon, ebay, etsy, alibaba and other big companies. If america today is not busy with their own troubles in their own backyard google might be sanctioned for anti trust. Rather focus your marketing on social media. Good Luck guys.

  363. Charlie Rose says:

    I would say this is true for some search results but not all search results. When it comes to geo search small business websites does great. Thanks for your insight.

  388. Charlie Rose says:

    That will happen with Google. It takes longer to define what your site is about because it uses other factors besides just on-page content in the beginning.

    My website is old more than 40 days I am working on less competitive keywords. the problem is I don’t find my all keywords in google webmaster tool. A few of them I see on webmaster tool. are my keyword still not ranked or there may be another reason that my keywords not appearing on webmaster tool?

  419. Charlie Rose says:

    I would view the page source and make sure its actually in it. Then sometimes when you search your own name Google creates their own titles. Your title is mostly a suggestion to search engines. In the end Google can add whatever they want.

    Hi Charlie,
    Thanks for the info. My blog/site used to get lots of search traffic from google. For the past one year or so I see a drastic decline in google traffic. No idea why ? Do you think it is because of my keywords -keyword market is very competitive ? Any help or advice would be highly appreciated.

    site url: http://www.thepicky.com

    But for a couple of months the blog is not appearing for many search terms that it was for earlier.

    Also, my other blog is two months old and have only four posts published and all four posts are indexed in google but two posts are not appearing in search.

    Can you please let me know the possible issues & anything that I can do to resolve the issue.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have been adding new blog posts very rarely as I have been working full time on other job & doing blogging part time.

    I was wondering because my site was appearing in Google for many more search terms earlier and now suddenly it is not.

    I have not done any link building yet should I go ahead and make few links like blog commenting, web 2.0, forum posting etc. or it may harm my website?

    Why have Google results become such crap?
    Here’s a hypothetical example the results I am seeing nowadays:

    1) There is an artist who has a website where you can buy his paintings. It is simple and clean without a bunch of bs text.

    2) There is also a click-bait website “all about” the artist with a bunch of crap articles.

    Conclusion: The crap site will rank higher than the artist’s own website.

    Google is now giving more credence to sites with articles about that something more than they do the real something.

    Somehow Google thinks those results serve the end user. Google has become about the same as Yahoo in my mind. The other day I searched a very specific key phrase and all the Google SERPs were for the EXACT opposite of what I was looking for.
