A Google spokesperson has confirmed (opens in a new tab) that the search company will be testing the new IndexNow protocol as well.

Websites can now get content changes easily discovered and indexed with IndexNow, a new protocol from Microsoft Bing and Yandex that notifies search engines when content is added, updated or removed on a website.

ContentKing supports Real-time IndexNow

Instantly index your content with Real-time IndexNow.

ContentKing can now notify supported search engines of content changes for you in real time.

And the best part? You can benefit from this without ever needing to do anything.

Using real-time monitoring, ContentKing tracks every change happening on your site. Each change is then instantly assessed, and if selected criteria is met, will be automatically submitted to IndexNow.

ContentKing tracks every change on your website and will notify search engines in real time.

If you have a large website with several million URLs you could wait days or even weeks for search engines to know if:

  • a new page was added
  • content was updated on key pages
  • redirects were implemented

Now you don’t even have to wait until after a crawl to submit new and updated content to IndexNow. ContentKing will take care of it for you.

Configure and customize which changes to submit to IndexNow

There’ll be smart defaults for which changes do or do not get submitted to IndexNow. But you can also configure and customize this to fit with your needs and priorities.

Customize which changes are submitted to IndexNow.

This could for example be:

  • submit pages with a title change, but only if the title is unique on the site and is the correct length
  • submit newly published pages, but only if they have a title and meta description present
  • submit only pages with the highest traffic or highest revenue
