To check if Googlebot will index a given URL, you can do the following:
- Use the URL Inspection tool in Google Search Console: This tool provides information on how Google crawls and indexes a specific page, including any crawl errors and indexing issues.
- Fetch as Google: This feature in Google Search Console allows you to submit a URL to be crawled by Googlebot. After the crawl, you'll receive a report on any crawl issues and the status of the URL in the Google index.
- Check the robots.txt file: The robots.txt file is a standard used by websites to communicate with web robots, including Googlebot, about which pages or sections of the website should not be crawled.
- Check for noindex meta tags: If a page contains a "noindex" meta tag, Googlebot will not index the page. You can view the source code of a page to check for this tag.
Note: It's important to monitor the status of your URLs in the Google index and address any crawl or indexing issues promptly to ensure they are properly indexed by Google.
