How do web pages get into Google’s index?
Step 1: Google crawls web pages with Googlebot
Before a web page can be listed on Google’s search result pages, it has to be discovered by Google. Google uses a web-crawler with the name ‘Googlebot’ to discover new pages.
Step 2: Google indexes the pages
Step 3: Google ranks the pages
After rendering the page, Google tries to understand the content of the found web pages. Depending on the content, the quality of the content and other factors (such as the external links that point to the web pages), Google will rank the pages.
What you should do now
For that reason, it is important that you deliver your web page content in plain HTML to search engines. The easier search engines can parse your web pages, the more likely it is that your content can be indexed correctly.
To make sure that your web pages can be parsed by all crawlers, check your web pages with the website audit tool in SEOprofiler. You can create your SEOprofiler account here:
