When IndexNow was first introduced by Microsoft Bing in October, it was not but at a degree the place the taking part search engines like google we co-sharing URLs – however that’s now not the case. Collaborating IndexNow search engines like google, which remains to be simply Microsoft Bing and Yandex, are actually co-sharing URLs.
Meaning if you submit a URL by IndexNow that’s submitted by Microsoft Bing, will probably be immediately shared with Yandex as nicely. The identical works the opposite method, submit a URL to Yandex and Microsoft Bing will get it immediately.
Plus, Microsoft stated that you just now not have to make use of https://www.bing.com/IndexNow?url=url-changed&key=your-key or https://yandex.com/indexnow?url=url-changed&key=your-key to submit the URLs, you need to use https://api.indexnow.org/indexnow?url=url-changed&key=your-key and the URLs will likely be shared with Bing and Yandex.
If Google does plan to undertake it, I believe webmaster/website proprietor adoption will explode. Proper now, Microsoft stated 80,000 web sites have “began publishing and reaping the advantages of quicker submission to indexation” by IndexNow – however in November that quantity was 60,000 and all by Cloudflare’s integration (which we use right here by the best way). So it appears adoption has been gradual?
However Microsoft launched a IndexNow WordPress plugin so hopefully that may assist somewhat?
In any occasion, the important thing new items listed below are these three factors:
(1) IndexNow’s protocol is now co-sharing URLs with taking part search engines like google.
(2) api.indexnow.org can now be used to submit URLs to.
(3) IndexNow us now utilized by 80,0000 web sites.
