Google not indexing new sites as it used to

Hello.

All my previous sites have been indexed in couple of days time by building backlinks from different older sites, social bookmarking, submitting sitemap, etc., you know the drill.

The last site of mine that was created two weeks ago still doesn't come up with any result in Google when doing site:example.com. When I log into webmaster tools I see that my sitemap info says how urls have been submitted, almost all of them (25), but next to indexed urls is one big 0.

Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

We have the same issue with a new subdomain, it's usually a pretty quick process with subs but our most recent one has not shown up despite adding a few very strong backlinks. On the other hand one of our established blogs gets pages indexed in less than 5 minutes....

I am currently experiencing a major spike in googlebot crawling. Anyone else noticing a shift in activity?

It's been one week since I received the message that they have reviewed my reconsideration request (told them that this domain of mine could have (perhaps) been spammy in the past), and still nothing, not one single indexed page, despite writing original articles day after day, for almost 4 weeks now, and getting backlinks from older sites, the yahoo says that I have more than 2100 inlinks and has indexed 10 of my pages, and I believe this should be more than enough for google. To make irony even bigger the blog that I started a week ago has already one page indexed in google despite having low quality content, and just couple of articles. I definitely do not like what big G is doing lately with all their "innovations"...

I am seeing major crawling (50% of the pages daily) but not indexing as fast as I'd like.

My website used to be something else earlier..Those caches still exist. However, now, over the past 1.5 months, I have written close to 77 posts on the new blog. Sad, it has not been indexed so far :(

Weird, 20 of my new pages (last week) indexed in the past 24 hours. A few, however, were indexed as soon as I did them. We're talking minutes

@Walkman
How long has your website existed? From what people have been reporting here, it is those with new websites (not new pages alone) who are seeing this issue. One of my older sites still sees pretty quick indexing..

Not sure where you came up with this assessment. ::confused::

My testing always includes a wide variety of factors, including aged vs. new domains.

As others said, the crawling has picked up again, but the actual indexing and re-ranking is still super slow compared to what I'm used to.

What I mean to say is that from what people have been complaining here, the problem with super-slow indexing has predominantly been with newer websites.

As I had already mentioned somewhere earlier, one of my own website is two years old and is not seeing any issue.

My site's index is still old. It's been online for nearly 10 years.

It took a week for my new website to be indexed, but four weeks on its still very hard to find in Google SERPs. Yahoo indexed nicely within days. Bing still knows nothing!

For a new website the number of indexed pages is decreasing. Is a little weird.A little more.

Anybody seeing a change since the latest update? For example, my home page's Sitelinks include a page that it hasn't linked to in 3-4 months.

My new site is doing really well in the Yahoo and Bing SERPs, they've placed it perfectly, but something is really up with Google, its indexed the pages a few times over now, buts its progress in the SERPs is complete crap.

Apparently my site has a page rank of 2, but theres lots of #*$!e sites 'under construction' etc.. before you get to mine down at position 300+ (for its best keyword)!

I've read through the Google guidelines with a fine tooth comb to figure out what might be penalising it. I've now done a 'reconsideration request' just so that a real person might spot something wrong. I'm wondering maybe its penalised for being to perfect!

At the moment, I can only conclude that Google algo has messed up.

Has anyone launched a website in the last 6 weeks which is appearing in the Google SERPs correctly?

[Conspiracy]Funny how this has happened soon after Bing got some decent search results. I wonder if Bing worked out how Google works and used it for its own SERPs before deciding to use the information to mess with Google.[/Conspiracy]

Something may be happening. This morning, a "site:www.example.com/*" search yields less than half of what it normally does. My actual pages still seem to be ranking though. I hope this is indication of an update.

Seeing this too on site:www. if you do it without that its fine, seeing this for all sites so think there is a bug

Google's is adding the new websites, just waiting for Google to apply some ranking to them in the SERPs.

My new pages are sometimes added minutes after. So fast sometimes google caches the draft version, but then other pages haven't been indexed in 2-3 weeks. So I don't know, hit and miss. All are linked equally internally

I've seen an upturn in some rankings on a 3 month old site of mine that just would not rank for anything...

Did stretch to the limits of being too aggressive for it and think it did pay... Now on the 3rd page of some very competitive keywords from being after the first 1000 results... Not bad at all.

By aggressive I mean more quality links than it used to be needed a year back when starting a new sites... Funny enough without any indexing rate change (according to the GWT graph).

One other site launched at the same time with only about a dozen links so far is nowhere to be found still...

My top keyword has now moved from 400+ to position 15 today. So maybe things are happening.

I think everyone is in the same boat here. I have had a new site online for about 2 months. Site has 1,900 pages and google has only indexed 135 of them.

Before i created a site with good content and a few dozen quality inbounds of the same size and it indexed 95% of it about a month.

Problem is google owns the net and they know it!

Google is still showing a page on my home page's Sitelinks that it hasn't linked to in almost 6 months. Is anyone else seeing anything that ridiculous or is it just me?

Tonearm - I think there is something horribly wrong inside Google right now. And it's a shame that the media covers every new Google product like little schoolgirls, but doesn't pay any attention to what's happening with their core search product. The only product that makes them any money.

I was just about to tell a client to "Block" a sitelink for a similar reason - and then, late this afternoon for me, Sitelinks updated.

My new site have all pages indexed in all TLD Google searches,excepting .com

On .com site: command return only 5% results.

On the other hand,when i search a particular url (entire url path of a page) on .com , the page appears.

This is meaning is still with a lot of supplementals on .com , targeted market ?

Or could be a Caffeine bug?

Sounds like a site: operator bug - I often see them - see [webmasterworld.com...] - this one you're seeing does sound extreme.

I don't think it's a bug...I think there has been serious change in the way Google indexes the results..

Since the time this thread was created, I had started a new Wordpress site..I have quite a few high ranking websites linking to me now, and everytime I write a new post, it is indexed in Google by the time I open a new tab and type "site:sitename"..It's that quick..

But the one other website I had written in this thread late last year is still having problems..Right now, links are indexed till Feb 11th.. :(

I have verified other new sites in my niche,the same situation. I think it is very possible to not be a bug.

Can good quality links resolve the indexing situation?
