Enhance your organization's website even more with Google Site Search.

Index content linked from a specific page or Sitemap

If you don't already have a Webmaster Tools account, add your site to Google Webmaster Tools. Make sure to add and verify all your sites, including subdomains. You should do this using the same Google Account you use for Custom Search.

You can ask Google to crawl a specific page or Sitemap to discover links to other pages on the same domain. All new pages on the same domain as the specified page or Sitemap will be added to the index, and will be crawled and indexed. In addition, Google will periodically revisit this page or Sitemap to discover and crawl new links.

To request ongoing indexing of content linked from a specific URL:

  1. On the Control Panel, on the left-hand menu, click Indexing.
  2. In the URLs linked from a page section, type the page(s) or Sitemap(s) containing links you want Google to discover.
  3. Click Add.

Each URL Google discovers and crawls in this way counts against your indexing quota. If you exceed your quota, Custom Search won't index discovered URLs until quota is freed up.
