Many webmasters are frustrated when they see that their pages will not appear on Google. Before falling into this state of distress, it is necessary to perform an analysis to determine whether there is indeed something they are doing wrong, or they simply let time pass and wait to be naturally indexed by the search engine.
First you must remember that there is a period known as the Sandbox. It is a period of time, varying in extent, for which Google will not include the newly created domains within the results pages. The aim is to ensure the permanence of these domains over time, preventing spam, and allow webmasters to work a little more firmly on the quality of their websites before offering to the public. How does the sandbox? Not exactly Google has made a statement in this regard but it is estimated that between 4 and 8 weeks, this time it takes for the new domain to appear listed. If your site was just created, therefore there is nothing more than to wait to get on Google.
Check the status of robots.txt. A simple error in this simple configuration file, without further avoid Google from indexing your site. If you have made changes in it, and then verify that indexing does not appear, there is probably “no” inadvertently tracking page by search engines. The solution: ask an expert to repair this file, upload to the server and wait for Google to index it again.
Worst case scenario: a penalty. Honestly, every webmaster knows if they have committed acts prohibited by Google. Let us see an example. If you have too many links in the footer, or a section too nourished “friend sites” where listings appear objectionable sites, it is necessary to correct the mistakes and send a letter using a form created by Google for that purpose to search for requesting reconsideration of the penalty. After correcting the errors will appear in Google, in the usual positions.
