TYPO3 Extension GoogleIndexer

ABSTRACT

Our solution allows for faster indexing of pages and removing them from the Google index. Until now, we had two options to notify Google search engine about a new page. The first method was using Google Search Console. The second, more time-consuming method, was waiting for the Google bot to visit the page and index it. Do it faster and in one step in the TYPO3 administrative panel.

Google provides an indexing service called Google Indexing API that allows developers to submit individual URLs directly to Google for crawling and indexing. This API is designed for specific use cases where websites or applications require immediate indexing of new or updated content. The Google Indexing API helps website owners or developers ensure that their content is quickly discovered and indexed by Google's search engine. By using the API, developers can request Google to crawl and index specific URLs, which can be useful for time-sensitive or dynamically generated content.

Main function

  • Button "Update" - Inform Google about a new URL to crawl or notify them that the content on a previously-submitted URL has been updated.
  • Button "Remove" - Once you have deleted a page from your servers, please notify Google to ensure the page is promptly removed from our index and to prevent any further crawling attempts on the corresponding URL.
  • Button "Check status" - Obtain the status of a request by checking the most recent time Google received each type of notification for a specific URL.
