Simple Practice Professional website




  • Julia Howland

    My website has only been up for a week and I'm having the same problem. Does anyone's website come up in a google search? I figured maybe it's to be expected since my website is new, but I'm very concerned that a site that's been up for 2 months doesn't show up.

    Hi Sarah and Julia,

    I’m happy to provide some clarity about your Professional Website appearing in the results of search engines, such as Google Search.

    Since Google Search and other search engines are third-party services, we can't guarantee search results. Google indexes the web on a rolling basis, and updates can vary in time, anywhere from days, weeks, or longer, due to the size of the internet. Because of this, we cannot provide a definitive timetable on how long it'll take for your website to appear through search results.

    If you’d like, you can edit the Online Discoverability (SEO) of your website to change how it can be found in a search engine. To do this, navigate to Settings > Professional Website > Customize your Website > Edit Website > Online Discoverability (SEO) and update your Page Title and Page Description.

    Additionally, the foundation of the Professional Website is designed to help optimize SEO, and our team will continue to add enhancements that will help improve your site's performance and online discoverability.To learn more about customizing your Professional Website and find answers to frequently asked questions, see Setting up your Professional Website.

    You can also consult this guide from Google for more clarity about how Google Search works: About Search Console.
