SEO-related changes you make on your website are not immediately reflected in search engines. Google, for example, normally takes from a few days to a few weeks to crawl and update this information in the search results.

Google Search Console is a free-to-use tool developed by Google that will help you speed up the process! To manually request Google to index your website pages, follow the steps below.

1. Open your Google Search Console account. Insert your domain and click Continue:

2. Verify your domain ownership by creating a given TXT record in your domain's DNS zone. Give the new TXT record 10-15 minutes to spread across all servers worldwide.

3. After 10-15 minutes, go back to Google Search Console and click Verify. You will see the following message once your domain is verified:

4. Once your website is verified at Google Search Console, click URL inspection on the left. Enter the URL of the page you'd like to index and click Request indexing:

Repeat this step for the rest of the URLs you want Google to index.

NOTE: The URL should contain WWW only if the WWW prefix is enabled in your website's general settings
