What is Submit URL?

Submit the URL as we send a link of the site to Search Engine - as a request for its bot to crawl the content of that website.

In the previous Google Search Console, the url submission had a separate page to do, since mid-2018, when Google announced the removal of the URL submit Tool, they turned this feature into Fetch as Google.

In Bing with the Bing Webmaster Tool admin, it is called Fetch as Bingbot.

From 2019, the new interface of Google Search Console is no longer Fetch as Google, instead it is URL Inspection with 2 main features:

  1. Test URL drive: check if a page has Google Index and check its mobile-friendliness.
  2. Request Indexing: Require index page if it is not yet indexed or you want it to index again after changing the content of the page.

Why must submit the URL to Google?

Usually, when your website is on the air - it is crawled by the Search Engine Bot and indexed (index).

Search Engine bots will need to fumble around every nook and cranny of the Website (the parts you allow it to track). So when you create a new page, or change the content of the old page ... the Bot will automatically detect and update it, send the latest data to Search Engine.

If everything goes as above, then Submit URL is a redundant job, because Bot has automatically done everything already.

But, in fact, the Search Engine Bot doesn't usually update as soon as you write a new post or change content, quickly it may take a few hours but slowly it can take a week, sometimes it fails so it doesn't bother indexing new posts. or an update of the old post.

How quickly or slowly the Bot updates depends on whether you optimize SEO On-Page, such as creating an exact sitemap and submitting it to Google Search Console, or organizing SEO standard content, SEO standard links, internal link building. good (Internal links) ....

So, even if it is automatic, the Bot still has many problems that make it unable to index fast!

Submit the URL allows us to 'send a request' to the Bot that it needs to Crawl and Index immediately on a Page without waiting for it to automatically grop for updates.

Submit URL 2019 is still effective

In fact, Google does not allow us to send the URL to the Bot to manually ask it to index, but Google translates it into a feature part of the Google Search Console.

When you perform Fetch as Google (currently Request Indexing), Google notices that ‘This only sends your request to the bot index waiting list'But it doesn't affect the early indexing or the Bot prefers indexing before other links.

But, in fact, in the experience of most users, sending the Submit URL request will help Bot index a page faster, or when the page content changes, submitting the URL for Request Indexing will also help the latest content. update on Google faster.

While Google doesn't recognize that Request Indexing will help with quick indexing, you'll find most of the latest SEO guidelines - reputable, recommend us to do this after writing or editing the content of the old post.

Simple - Because it works, we do, who cares what Google says!
