Understanding URL's indexation status

Congratulations, you've successfully set up everything! Now, in your URL manager, you'll be able to see all the URLs that have been recovered through the scan of your sitemap.xml.

It's crucial to understand the different URL statuses to make the most out of this data. Let's dive in and learn about the various URL statuses and their significance.

Not indexed

If one of your URLs have the "Not indexed" status, it means that your URL haven't been indexed by Google yet. 

Don't worry, now that you've got FlashSERP we got you covered. Our crawlers will automatically detect non-indexed URLs and mark them as "Sent for indexation". You should see them appear in the SERP soon enough (under approx. 48h after the first scan).

Note: If you do not wish to index that specific URL or a bunch of them, you can deactivate them (learn how to do so with this tutorial).

Sent for indexation

Indeed it's pretty straight forward but it's important to note what it really means. If a (or multiple) URL is tagged by the "Sent for indexation" status, it means that we've sent that URL for Google to index. 

It could mean two things:

  • If it's a new¬†URL, it will be added on the SERP under 48h

OR

  • If the URL¬†was already indexed, it will be updated.¬†Like after updating the content or if you added structured data to it.

Once the indexing process finished, our crawlers will automatically mark your URLs as "Indexed".

Note: You can manually send URLs for indexation, head to this tutorial to learn about it.

Indexed

That's the one that you want to see on ALL your URLs (excepting the ones that you've decided to deactivate of course).

It means that your URLs have been indexed by Google and are ranking on the SERP. Congrats! ūüėé

Note: We're constantly updating the status (more or less on a daily basis), hence you'll always have the latest status appended to your URLs. Pretty neat right?

Deactivated

One of the best feature of FlashSERP, is that you can deactivate a URL (or multiple) for indexation. Meaning that Google won't fetch your page and index it on the SERP.

If one of your URL have been marked as "Deactivated", it's because you've decided to mark it as such. Please note that we'll never deactivate URLs on your behalf without any consent from you.
