How to Submit URLs to Google to Quickly Index on the New Google Search Console



Google recently removed the URL inspection tool that helped the users submit any URL to Google’s index. Yet the site owners can use the Search Console’s Fech & Submit tool to submit URLs to Google. Alternatively, the users can submit a sitemap file and notify Google.

But now the New Google Search Console is taking over. The tool won’t be available after Mar 28, 2019, as Google is advising the users to use its new URL Inspection tool instead.

The URL Inspection tool is a recent addition to the new Search Console that comes bundled with the Index Coverage report providing a more detailed URL-level analysis. This is much improved from the previous crawl reports and gives SEO professionals precise details.

The feature is present below the Performance under Overview in the left sidebar.

Submit any URL and click Test live URL. The Test URL feature further adds more power to the URL Inspection tool that can see the rendered page, detect page resources that couldn’t be loaded as well as JavaScript errors. The live test will not load the embedded resources in order to provide quicker insights. But while indexing, the resources will be taken into account.

Google allows site owners to only submit up to 10 individual URLs per day. There is no information about the count being altered on the new search console. Also, the crawling is not done immediately after you place the request as it may even several days for a successful request to be granted. The main drawback of submitting URLs via Search Console is that people who have their sites verified can only submit URLs.
