Instant Indexing for Google


Get your website’s pages, and content crawled immediately! Use the Instant Indexing plugin to beat your competition and rank higher.


Note: Google recommends that you use the Indexing API ONLY for Job Posting and Live Streaming websites. However, it works on any type of website and many of our users have seen great results already. Please proceed with caution.

Whether you are a novice blogger or a seasoned SEO – you know the importance of getting into the Google index. It is the very first step before your website can see any organic traffic coming from Google or any other search engine.

If your pages don’t get indexed, your website is essentially invisible to Google and all the visitors – visitors that would otherwise “see” your website in the search engines.

So, it is pretty important that your new content gets crawled/indexed fast, and it is equally important for your already published content to get updated in Google as well.

How do you do one or the other? Or, how about doing them both?

Enter the Instant Indexing plugin by Rank Math

When you publish new content or update old content on your WordPress website, the Instant Indexing plugin sends a crawl request to Google using the Google Indexing API.

The result? Almost immediate indexing of your content. Here is an example.

There are a lot of plus points of having your content instantly crawled and indexed by the search engines, but, here are a few major advantages of using the Instant Indexing plugin:

  • Rank faster – Have that awesome content you know users will like? Get it in front of your audience faster.
  • Increase your chances of ranking above your competition
  • Keep search results up-to-date
  • One-time Setup
  • Automatic Submissions
  • Manual Submissions
  • Excludes Custom Post Types
  • Send request to remove Post from Google SERPs
  • Get Current Post Status
  • Compatible with Any SEO WordPress Plugin
  • Bulk Submissions (Up to 100 URLs)
  • Completely FREE.

There is just no reason not to give it a try.

Can I use the plugin without Rank Math?

Yes, you absolutely can. You can use the Instant Indexing plugin with any SEO plugin you like. But, we recommend using the Instant Indexing API plugin with Rank Math SEO for best results.

Can I submit pages that do not have Job Posting or Livestream structured data?

Although the Google Indexing API officially supports pages containing Job Posting and Livestream structured data – it is officially recommended to use only on such websites. But, it can be used with any website. But, do proceed with caution if you are not comfortable with this.

Will my pages and posts get indexed instantly?

Technically, yes. That’s what the plugin is made to do. But, please note that we guarantee instant crawling using this plugin. Whether or not Google will index your content after crawling is and always will be in Google’s control. They have the final say in what they want to appear in their SERPs and what they don’t.

Great plugin, but it doesn’t have one of the most important features!As you know and it is included in the plugin description, this is a sensitive feature and Google does not like spam requests.The plugin should add a feature that has a checkmark before the content update to determine whether the plugin should send it to Google or not.Otherwise, you have to go to the settings and disable and re-enable it every time, which wastes a lot of time

<!– wp:paragraph –> <p class=””>I tested it, the code works but it doesn’t index quickly, it takes 2-3 days to index without this module, it indexes in 3-4 hours, to be precise, very disappointed with this module. site here</p> <!– /wp:paragraph –>

It’s a good plug in but before using it, you should read the thread Indexing API Quickstart from Google (please search it since I can’t add link here): “The Indexing API allows any site owner to directly notify Google when pages are added or removed. This allows Google to schedule pages for a fresh crawl, which can lead to higher quality user traffic. Currently, the Indexing API can only be used to crawl pages with either JobPosting or BroadcastEvent embedded in a VideoObject. For websites with many short-lived pages like job postings or livestream videos, the Indexing API keeps content fresh in search results because it allows updates to be pushed individually.” So it’s not made for every business. Do it at your own risk.

Works very well. But be careful what you use the plugin for.
