How to make Google index a guide?

Postby EOM on Thu May 23, 2019 4:03 am

Hello,

I've created guides with D2H (responsive theme) and uploaded them on our site. However, when I do a Google search on the site, it does not return any guide pages.

In Flare I specify a sitemap, but I cannot find this option in D2H.

So my question is what do I need to do to make Google index my guide?

Thank you!

Hello,

DocToHelp does not generate a sitemap. Search the web for a solution!
Kind regards,

Google doesn't require a sitemap for it to work, but it finds your site either by you telling Google to index your site, or by discovering your site through incoming links. This is, however, not an immediate process. Google says it can take several days or even weeks for your site to get indexed:

If memory serves, the more often your content changes, the more frequently Google will re-index your site.
