How to check if you Google can index your web pages
If Google cannot index your web pages correctly, the rankings of your web pages won't be as good as they could be.

| Google: websites that are crawled
often do not rank better
"In a Google webmaster hangout, Google’s John Mueller said that a high crawl frequency does not mean that a website will rank higher. [...]
It’s not true that if a page is not crawled regularly that it won’t show up in rankings at all. In general, we try to do our crawling based on when we think this page might be changing or how often it might be changing."
"On Twitter, Google’s John Mueller was asked how Google looked for rich snippet spam. According to John Mueller, Google detects rich snippet spam through algorithms and manual spam reports."
"[Google's Gary Illyes] said that the timeline [for Penguin] is by the end of the year and as far as he knows, that timeline has not changed. [...]
In regards to the next version of Penguin being real-time, Gary said that he can't guarantee it. However, the plan is for Penguin to be real-time [...] There might be a chance that Google will have to push the refresh without it being real-time. But the plan is for this next release to be real time."
"The NoIndex directive in Robots.txt is pretty effective. It worked in 11 out of 12 cases we tested. It might work for your site, and because of how it’s implemented it gives you a path to prevent crawling of a page and also have it removed from the index. That’s pretty useful in concept. However, our tests didn’t show 100 percent success, so it does not always work."
Google updates its ranking algorithm for mobile results
"As announced some weeks ago, Google has updated the ranking algorithm for mobile results. Websites that use full page app install interstitials won’t be considered mobile friendly."
