Checking If Your Site is Indexed by Search Engines
1 min read
To see if search engines like Google and Bing have indexed your site, enter "site:" followed by the URL of your domain. For example, "site:mystunningwebsite.com/".
By default, your homepage is indexed without the part after the "/" (known as the slug).
The results show all of your site's pages that have been indexed, and the current Meta Tags saved in the search engine's index. If none of your pages appear, it means that your site has not been indexed yet.
