UPDATE

Google's indexing issue is now resolved - new content being indexed

Google posted on Twitter earlier this morning that the issue is resolved:


What happened. It appears based on what I am hearing from Googlers that the search engine had some sort of issue getting new content into their index. So either Google had a crawling issue where they weren’t able to crawl new content, or more likely Google was crawling new content but was not able to fully index and process that new content due to some sort of bug or backlog.

If you posted a new piece of content yesterday, Google would have taken several hours to index that content. Now, Google is back to indexing new content, especially on sites that update often, like news sites, within minutes.
