The whole idea is to manually tell Google about your content by introducing the link (s) you just added to their search crawlers. Within a few minutes, your content will be available in search for as long as other factors remain constant. I have personally used this procedure on clients’ websites and the results are great!

Why Force google to crawl websites?

It’s obvious that having your website content indexed in Google and other search engines increases traffic. In situations when Google takes a long to show your content in search results after publishing, you may consider forcing Google to crawl your website.

Wait until the process is completed. Wait for a few minutes and search for the same URL or post title in Google search. Your newest posts should be visible in Google search results in the next few minutes if not seconds.

Note: You need to have marked your site, and any other URL with an index tag. Marking your URLs with no index tags won’t help you achieve the results since Google search robots will ignore all URLs marked as no-index. More on Asking Google to recrawl your website URLs.
