What is Google Indexing API?
Google Indexing API allows you to notify Google when you add, update or remove pages on your site in order to make Googlebot update its index. This way, Google schedules new crawls, keeping up to date with your content on SERPs, which improves your Website traffic. Below we highlight some of the things you can do with the indexing API.
What can you do with the Indexing API?
You can perform the following actions using the Google Index API:
- Update a URL: Let Google know you have a new URL or updated content on your Website so it can crawl it ASAP.
- Remove a URL: Notify Google that you have deleted a URL on your site. This way, Google will de-index the page and won’t waste your crawl budget on it.
- Get the status of a request: Check the last notification you sent to Google about a specific URL.
- Send batch indexing requests: You can send up to 100 calls in one request asking to update, index, or eliminate your pages. This reduces the number of HTTP connections you have to make.
