Bugs: Indexed URLs Keeps Decreasing in Webmaster Tools
« on: February 12, 2018, 12:05:18 PM »
My Webmaster Tools shows no messages or errors with my website sitemap, but the number of URLs that are showing as indexed by Webmaster Tools keeps changing.

Webmaster Tools shows, as of Friday (3 days Ago), 12,240 "submitted" URLs. As of that friday, 3,639 are indexed. This was after I resubmitted the site map on that day.

The number of URLs indexed has just drop to 2612 Today, While the Submitted URLS is still 12,240.  please as anyone come accross this and what is the solutions to it ...

That is very common. Google does not index many urls any more.  They only take a few.
I seen it across all my forum sites.

well, yes.  the numbers WILL decrease as google PROPERLY indexes your pages. That was the whole point of adding the canonical URL value.

Now, pages which were indexed separately, because they had slightly different URLs are correctly indicated to be the same page, despite the different URL.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

What you should do is go to Google's webmaster tools, and find the new Search Console. It will actually show you exactly how many links are indexed, how many have been ecluded, and why.

For example, I see my forum has 34.8K links indexed, 128K links excluded, of which about 120K because of correct use of noindex and canonical tags.

 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
