Google has acknowledged an ongoing problem with its search engine indexing that is slowing down the indexing process for some websites. In an update posted early Thursday morning, Google said it is “investigating an issue with indexing in Google Search that’s affecting a small number of sites.” The company said affected websites “may experience slower than usual indexing times.”The indexing problems started around 11:30 pm ET on Monday night, January 31st. Since then, many website publishers, content creators, and news organizations have reported issues getting their newly published content indexed and surfaced in Google search results. One common issue was content not getting indexed despite receiving initial signals like impressions and clicks in the Google Search Console. With this issue confirmed, publishers experiencing delays in getting content indexed and appearing in Google Search should rest assured that they’re not the only ones affected.
