Discovered - currently not indexed

Website owners often come across with various Google indexing statuses, each presenting its own set of challenges. One status that frequently frustrates website owners is "Discovered - Currently Not Indexed." In this article, we'll delve into the status, uncover its underlying causes, and provide actionable strategies to boost the visibility of your website's content.

Understanding "Discovered - Currently Not Indexed":

When Google's web crawler discovers a new web page, it undergoes a process called crawling, where it analyzes the page's content and determines its relevance and importance. However, not all discovered pages are immediately crawled or indexed and included in Google's search results. The status "Discovered - Currently Not Indexed" indicates that Google has identified the page but has nit yet actually crawled the page to assess the content. This isn't necessarily a huge issue, as eventually Google will decide to crawl the page, however the time you need to wait for this to automatically happen could be many months.

Why Does "Discovered - Currently Not Indexed" Occur?

Several factors can contribute to the occurrence of the "Discovered - Currently Not Indexed" status:

  1. Technical Issues: Errors in the website's structure, server configuration, or robots.txt file may prevent Googlebot from properly indexing the page.

  2. New or Updated Content: Google's indexing process may prioritize indexing new or updated content over older content. As a result, older pages may remain in the "Discovered - Currently Not Indexed" status temporarily.

Strategies to Improve Indexing and Visibility:

  1. Content Quality Optimization: Focus on creating high-quality, unique, and valuable content that provides genuine value to your target audience. Conduct regular content audits to identify and improve low-quality or duplicate content.

  2. Optimize Metadata and On-Page Elements: Ensure that each page has unique and descriptive title tags, meta descriptions, and headings. Optimize on-page elements such as images, internal links, and structured data markup to enhance relevance and crawlability.

  3. Improve Website Performance: Enhance website speed, usability, and mobile-friendliness to provide a better user experience. Google prioritizes fast, accessible websites for indexing and ranking.

  4. Submit Pages for Indexing: Use Google Search Console to request indexing of specific pages that are not being indexed. This can prompt Google to re-crawl and index the requested pages more quickly.
