A page is indexed by Google if the Google crawler (“Googlebot”) has visited it, examined it for content and context, and saved it in the Google index. Pages that have been indexed by Google will appear in search results (if they meet Google’s webmaster guidelines). While it differs, it appears that Google crawls a site and assigns authority to the domain in as little as 4 days and as long as 6 months. When you publish a new blog post, website page, or website in general, there are a number of factors that influence how easily Google indexes it.
