    Google has brought back the request indexing tool within the URL Inspection features of the Google search console. The tool has been out of action for the last two months (69 Days to be precise). It was expected to be back before the holiday shopping season but missed it. Thankfully, it has come back right before Christmas.

    Request Indexing

    Google announced on the official Twitter handle Google search handle –

    “We’re glad to announce that ‘Request Indexing’ is back to the Google Search Console URL Inspection – just in time for the new year!”

    They also reminded the webmasters that instead of submitting a large number of URLs, one should submit a sitemap if they have many URLs. However, they also said that submitting a sitemap does not guarantee indexing of the pages.

    The Request Indexing feature was so badly missed by SEO and webmasters that they started talking about it in every forum even though Google confirmed that indexing wouldn’t be affected in any way. As the tool is back, webmasters can submit their URLs of newly created pages or old URLs where the content has been recently updated to get the pages in Google’s index quickly.
