Why indexing every page on Google will ruin your domain authority
After seeing the Page Index Report on Search Console, many of you might be horrified to see the number of unindexed pages and scramble to index every single page to gain maximum exposure on search engines. However, this approach can be counterproductive and lead to several issues, ranging from search engine penalties to legal and privacy concerns.
You don’t need to index every single page on Search Engine.
Even Google warns their search console users not to expect 100% index coverage.
In this article, we discuss the reasons why you should not index every page on Google and highlight the benefits of a strategic approach to indexing.
Reasons to Avoid Indexing Every Page:
Duplicate content can harm your search engine ranking, as Google may interpret it as an attempt to manipulate search results.
Irrelevant or low-quality content decreases user experience and can negatively impact your website's overall search engine ranking.
Indexing private or sensitive information exposes users to privacy breaches and identity theft.
Limited resources mean that indexing every page would slow down the indexing process for more important and relevant pages. Temporary or under-construction pages do not provide valuable information to users and waste indexing resources. Also, Administrative or utility pages clutter search results and are unnecessary for the general public.
Search engine penalties can occur when indexing low-quality, spammy, or irrelevant pages, impacting your website's visibility and ranking.
