Google index status is 0
When checking your Google Webmasters Tools, also rebranded as Google Search Console, you might see that your Index Status is 0 (zero). This can be alarming for webmasters and for SEO specialists. Though we don’t exactly have a control on what and how many Google should index, it is a best practice to submit a sitemap via Google Search Console. If you already did, check if it is updated (sitemap).
Another thing you can do is to go to Google.com and type the following: site:[yourdomain or URL here].
Example: site:https://www.webinbangla.com or site:http://localhost/wp/webinbangla or site:https://webinbangla.com
Yet while trying to be one, check the following:
sitemap (as mentioned earlier)
robot.txt (make sure your entries are correct and not blocking Google)
.htaccess (make sure your entries are correct and not blocking Google)
WordPress setting (make sure you allow search engines to index if you are using WordPress)
You can also use the Fetch as Google feature in your Search Console to quickly index a page. Though Google does a great job on indexing your webpages, using this feature can just speed up things.
Now the solution, I did this test right after I published this post. Therefore this post was updated or republished after doing the test below.
