What is the Google index?

How do you get your website indexed

Given time your website should be indexed automatically. If you still feel it has not been indexed you can request Google to crawl an index your site within the Search Console by clicking "Fetch as Google" in the left hand menu. The index report, also in the left hand menu, will also show you how many of your pages are currently indexed.
