Google not able to index new content, again
by Barry Schwartz, SearchEngineLand.com
August 8, 2019

Google is having issues indexing new content again and the URL Inspection tool is also having issues.

Google has confirmed that as of earlier this morning it is unable to index new content across the web. There is a bug that Google said is “impacting some sites.”

But it is bigger than some sites. From our view, this seems much larger than just “some sites.” Clearly Google is eager to fix any indexing issues, because Google wants to surface the most recent content from publishers. For Google to not show breaking news from the Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal and other popular magazines is something Google probably isn’t too happy about.

What it looks like. If you try to search for content from a popular news site and then filter to only show content within the past hour, you won’t currently be given any new real content from that site. ....

URL Inspection tool bugs. Related to this, Google said the URL Inspection tool within Google Search Console is also having issues. Google said on Twitter, “We recommend waiting for this issue to be resolved, and then checking the URLs later on. Thanks for your patience & sorry for the inconvenience!”

So if you want to try to manually submit your URLs to Google’s index through the tools inside of Google Search Console, you would be out of luck.

Again? Yes, again, Google had issues indexing new content back in May 2019 and also in April had an issue where Google de-indexed many sites back in April 2019.

If Google is not able to index your new content, and if a lot of your Google traffic comes from fresh content, then your traffic will likely see a decline through the duration of this bug. This may also have an impact on your Google Search Console performance reports, so keep that in mind as well.

Google's indexing issues are resolved

Google’s indexing issues are resolved and Google is once again able to both crawl, index and rank fresh new content within minutes. Google has now officially confirmed this and our tests seem to show that this is the case.

A large part of this issue has been resolved - in particular, the URL Inspection tool should be working normally again. We're currently still working on resolving the remaining issues and will update here once we have more to share. Thanks for your patience!

This issue is now resolved. Thanks for all your feedback along the way. Wishing you all a calm weekend!
