I have a question, I would love some input… here is the simple version…. friend had a super old website built in WordPress with hosting that was somewhere else. I did all the stuff to get them back in control on their own WordPress install with their hosting company of choice. I did all the correct Domain & DNS stuff to get her pointing in the right direction and fixed up the SSL to active again. I created a ‘Under Construction Landing Page’ with Elementor and made it the home page. Had a little countdown timer and such, something I normally in the past have just used a simple under construction plugin for but this time I wanted to be cool and use Elementor. Makes sense right? Super simple stuff. The new website took me about 3-4 days to bust out and has been live for about 5 days now BUT! When I do a search for the company name on Google…. Mr. Google man still wants to show “We are building a brand new website! We are very excited for you to see! 0Days. 0Hours. 0Minutes. 0Seconds. undefined. undefined. undefined. undefined.” The same day I made the website live I configured Yoast on all the main pages. Is it that I really am just not giving it enough time to propagate?
I also have a second site from last week that I did the same process with and I am still showing under construction in the meta data of the snippet in the Google search.
Have you submitted the sitemap to Google and made a request to crawl the site?
No probs mate – if you ain’t done this before it may give you a brain ache! 😉 But once you get it in your head you’ll be flying next time you need to do it!!
I have done it before
Ah cool.. Easy pie then.
Also with the sitemap, sometimes just sharing it on Twitter will get Google to go back and re-index. You just need Google to come back.
You might not have cleared your cache.
If you don’t need Yoast in the future, you can also try this one: https://nl.wordpress.org/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/ Use it for every client site
It takes time for Google to index your site. Have you set up Google Webmaster Console?
If you do so, I think you can submit a site map and ask for priority indexing.
