Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Google has only "indexed" ... 35% of my articlesI am inclined to say that this has more to do with GSC reporting than with de facto indexing. Do some exact-text searches on assorted pages and see if they come up. (To ensure that I am not talking out of my hat, I tried it with my three most recently posted pages--the newest being 9 days ago--and verified that they are all in the index.) If some pages don't come up at all, you will need to verify that they have all been duly crawled. In fact, you should have seen a full crawl within 24 hours after Google first learned of the new site's existence.

You never mentioned a sitemap
GSC also kept putting up old link DB. For example, one day they would post my 13,000 plus Pinterest links, then the next month they would not. Next month there are 7,000 Pinterest links etc.
I can't figure out the logic. Google has that sitemap since day one, they keep revisiting it and still not indexes.
I have decent links about 200
It wasn't Lucy asking those question it was me.Yes, the questions I asked were more prosaic (and if they were answered, I can't find it): Has the entire site been crawled--preferably all at once, immediately after its discovery--and can specific content be found in the index?
My site, 10,000 pages on WordPress, too large for Googlebot to even spider completely once.
They have found 10,000 pages that never existed
Most of the pages 60% are noindex. I needed them up at the beginning of the site because it ties together as a complete package.
Those links are a representative sample of all the good links I received freely from other bloggers, writers and sites over the course of 15 years. If it works, I will continue with the Redirect 301.
Your site was comparatively small, so Googlebot was able to spider it two or three times

Quotemarkup. If you don't see the Quote button, you can type [ quote] and [ /quote] manually (omitting the spaces, of course).
Psst! Reading these replies will be a whole lot less confusing if you put the stuff you're replying to in
Where's the quote button?There are two ways to attain it. One is to click Post Reply instead of Quick Reply. I have never personally used this options, as it's several millimeters further away, but it does get you the full Post window with formatting options. The other is to click Preview after composing (part of) your post. This, too, has all the formatting options.
