  • Crawling is still not available, today is 24 Oct 2020, but when I submit a URL and click on LIVE TEST, I get "URL is available to Google", so this is not impacting crawling URL to index in realtime. Also, try per say, you can filter by date and see if the page is available in search results or not.

  • Its almost the end of 2020 and its not yet fixed! I am wondering if the Pandemic has made the progress slow! Lets hope its fixed soon, I am able to get my website post crawled via the sitemap.xml and the crawler bots visit my site often, one trick I see is if you click on TEST LIVE URL, the post are getting crawled....
