Google announced Wednesday night that it has finally fixed the deindexing problem that has been plaguing websites for a week.
Here’s the tweet:
Google inadvertently dropped pages from its search index as of April 4. Three days later, Google said it had fixed the problem, only to backtrack a day later, admitting that it had not been fully resolved.
In a series of updates throughout the week, Google said it was still reprocessing pages and hoped to resolve the issue soon.
If any of your pages were de-indexed during this period, you may see a loss in traffic, revenue, sales, conversion, and overall metrics.
It is not clear what caused the problem (Google does not clarify) or what part of the index was affected. We just know that it was substantial and took days to fix. What this episode did demonstrate is that the Inspect URL and Send to Index feature in Google Search Console worked for those who forwarded the removed URLs to the index.
