    Question Search Console Issue


    Dear Webmasters,

    Hope all of you are doing well.

    I was looking at my websites search console and I noticed that my website have only 4981 URL's indexed, whereas I have around 10,000 URLs, can someone if you let me know why is that, is there any bug from google search console or what?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Best regards,

    Hello,

    In all likelihood, no. Chedders made a few great posts recently about why, sometimes, Google is slow to fully index a site:

    Check the replies in these threads:
    Estimated speed of local data updates at google
    Google URL Index

    Were all these pages indexed before? Have pages dropped out of the index?

    Google is always a little vague about why they do this. Sometimes it's a penalty, sometimes it's just that they're de-indexing pages that are too similar, etc etc: https://support.google.com/webmaster...er/40052?hl=en

    No, this number is figuring out for quite a few times more exactly around 7-8 months. Does google notify you or gives any warning about penalties, because I was ranking well with that keyword for few months and I just noticed that this month my page that used to appear on google with that keyword is not appearing anymore? (WIRED).

    Thank you for your information.

    Go and check crawl errors then work on it. Try submitting sitemap again. May it will refresh your website data.

    Type site:mysite.com into Google and it will show you how many URLs are indexed by Google

    Were they pages getting any traffic? Look at your landing pages traffic and find out what pages are losing traffic. Check to see if those pages are still indexed. Take note as to what kind of page it is, it may help you figure out why they aren't getting traffic.

    I know you have probably checked this, but are the deeper pages on your site set to noindex? Are other parts of your site excluded in robots.txt?
