Hello, my name is Ali, and I have a blog that is two years old, and there are more than 10 very old articles that Google does not want. I archived these articles, and more than once I manually archived the article from the webmasters, but the problem persists. What should I do
Hi @alishrif541. Just out of interest, how do you know Google isn’t indexing your pages? And why is it so important? Are there links to those articles within your site?
I understand your concern about the older articles on your blog that Google seems to be ignoring. It can be frustrating when your content doesn’t get the visibility it deserves.
In addressing this issue, I’d like to offer some suggestions to help you improve your blog’s overall performance. However, I would like to mention that it’s essential to focus on providing helpful information and engaging in meaningful conversations rather than simply inserting backlinks in comments. Building relationships and trust within the community can lead to more valuable and organic backlinks over time.
Content Quality: Start by reviewing those older articles. Are they still relevant and useful to your audience? If not, consider updating or rewriting them to provide fresh and valuable information. Google values quality content.
Keyword Research: Ensure that you’re targeting the right keywords in your articles. Use keyword research tools to identify relevant and high-traffic keywords in the dog-related niche.
On-Page SEO: Optimize your articles for search engines. Pay attention to meta titles, descriptions, headings, and keyword usage. A well-structured article with proper SEO can improve its visibility.
Internal Linking: Within your newer articles, consider linking to these older ones where relevant. This can help Google discover and index them.
Backlinks: Building high-quality backlinks is essential for SEO. Reach out to other dog-related websites and offer to guest post or collaborate on content. Organic backlinks from authoritative sources can significantly boost your blog’s visibility.
Social Media Promotion: Share your articles on social media platforms and engage with dog-loving communities. This can drive traffic and encourage discussions around your content.
Google Search Console: Use Google Search Console to submit your sitemap and request indexing for specific pages. This can help speed up the process of getting your articles recognized by Google.
Remember that SEO is a long-term game, and it may take some time for Google to reevaluate your older content. Also, be sure to focus on the quality of your content and user experience as these are critical factors for SEO success.
Regarding your blog, you can mention it naturally in your comments or discussions when relevant. However, avoid over-promotion, as it can be seen as spammy behavior. Instead, aim to contribute genuinely to the conversation and offer insights or advice related to dogs. Over time, this can lead to organic backlinks and increased visibility for your blog.
I hope these suggestions help you address your content visibility issues and improve your blog’s overall performance. If you have any more specific questions or need further assistance, feel free to ask.
