How to Start a Google Crawl?


(Emilio F Castillo) #1

Its been a few days and I’ve not seen google crawling our forum. We have the main domain site map in google webmaster tool and have read on this forum that a site map for the sub domain is not needed. We current host with Discourse.

  1. How can I tell if Google Crawled our site?

  2. Where can i see a report with the results of the Crawl?

  3. What, if anything, can I do to initiate the Crawl?

You can force a crawl at Google Search Console and see general crawl stats at Google Search Console.

Thank you very much. This is helpful.

And this search with 132 results looks ok for me.

I am trying to do this for another community I have with Discourse:

Getting a “redirected” error and then I requested an indexing…is there anything else I should do?

http will indeed redirect, try https

Your first port of call for anything google related should be the Google Webmaster Tools.
