As you know, the Google Indexing API only is reserved for job posting URLs and live stream events. But that might change as we have been speculating for a while. Gary Illyes from Google in his Reddit AMA also mentioned that Google is testing this as well.Gary Illyes wrote "Currently we're testing our own limitations with the indexing api as well as the usefulness of pushed content vs pulled. We don't really have anything to announce just yet."This was in response to Yoast announcing integration with Google on submitting content to them. Gary added to that "As for Yoast, I don't want to step on anyone's toes (e.g. our Indexing API PM), but it may be that he over-announced some things."We know Bing is onboard with pushed content over pulled content but it sounds like Google is not there yet. Someone then asked Gary if Wix uses that indexing API and Gary said "As far as i know, yes, they're the only early testers. Though they're also making stupid ass statements about it..."It would … [Read more...] about Will Google’s Indexing API To Allow All Content Types?

Fetch as GoogleBot, Indexing API & methods to get your site recrawled by Google Back in 2010, I appeared on a Whiteboard Friday with Rand Fishkin talking about ways to get your site content indexed quickly. When I originally wrote the first version of the article you’re reading (first in 2010, 2nd update in 2015) Pubsubhubbub (now referred to as Websub) was the technology du jour. At the time, Google recommended publishers implement it by submitting their feeds to a public PuSH hub or by building their own. Me on a Whiteboard Friday session in 2010. Today, I have less hair but fortunately for us all there are better and faster indexing options in 2019. If the subject of PubSubHubbub is still of interest, it’s good news for you; Google still support this mechanism for content discovery. Fortunately we have more effective options to play with in 2019, so the update to this article focuses its attention elsewhere. Fast indexing options in 2019 In 2019, these are the … [Read more...] about Fetch as GoogleBot, Indexing API & methods to get your site recrawled by Google
A few months ago, Google introduced the Indexing API specifically for job posting URLs. It is hopeful to some that Google will open it up for more reasons. But Google's John Mueller said on Twitter "I don't think that's coming anytime soon."I don't think anyone expected more to come from the Indexing API so soon anyway. When it first came out, Google initially said very little about it and down played the whole thing. Well, it seems like no one should be excited because we are not going to be seeing Google expand this Indexing API in any other way, any time soon. Forum discussion at Twitter. … [Read more...] about Google: Indexing API Not Coming Anytime Soon
Yesterday we reported how Google released the Google Indexing API specifically for job posting URLs but if you look closely at the wording, the API can be expanded well beyond just job posting URLs. I asked John Mueller of Google about the possibility of Google expanding the Indexing API beyond just job posting URLs and he said "I don't know." Well, we'd expect that kind of answer from him.So I dug deeper and he said "I don't know how how far we we can take that." But the wording of the API pages makes it sound like it will be expanded to other areas and I know Google, espesially John Mueller, hates to preannounce things. He said "Yeah, I mean it's it's something where we we need to see how how it works out first." So maybe we will see this used in other areas but for not, I guess they want to see how it works with just job posting URLs.John also said this is a brand new API and has nothing to do with the real time indexing API from a couple years ago or other APIs.Here is the … [Read more...] about Google On Expanding The Google Indexing API
Eric Enge and the Stone Temple Consulting team embarked on a quest to find out: How does Google index tweets? Their findings, which were released today, helped find out more information about indexing process could help figure out how much influence Twitter has on the ranking process. The Intial Data Collection Process First, the team attempted to find out how many tweets Google has in its index by running a site:Twitter.com search: Enge stats that the 6.2 billion pages listed on this search is about two weeks’ worth, if we go with the 500 million tweets per day sent on average, according to Twitter’s IPO filing. Breaking this down further with a custom range site search for each month from January 2012 to June 2014, the average monthly number of tweets indexed is about 1,868,600. However, Enge reminds us, the site search isn’t 100% reliable: “First, the disclaimer. The site: query is known to be rather imprecise. However, even allowing for a large degree of … [Read more...] about How Does Google Index Tweets? A Study by @StoneTemple
