With the implementation of the Indexing API, every website owner can immediately let Google know when a page is added or deleted. This way, Google can plan when the page will be re-indexed, which in turn can improve the quality of user traffic.

Currently, the Indexing API can only be used to index pages that have a JobPosting or BroadcastEvent link embedded in a VideoObject. For sites that contain many pages with limited lifespans such as job postings or live video streams, the Indexing API ensures that the content in search results is always up-to-date, as it allows the latest information to be delivered individually.

Here are some of the things you can do with the Indexing API:

  • Update a URL: Tell Google about a new URL that needs to be indexed, or tell them that the content on a URL you previously submitted has been updated.
  • Delete a URL: After you delete a page from your server, tell Google so that we can remove the page from the index and not try to index the URL again.

These are just a few of the benefits of using the Indexing API to index your website. How to index your website with the Google Indexing API? The process is actually quite simple, because this time we are using tools, but what you need to do is create a credentials.json account.

How to create a credentials.json account for Gindex

Step 1: Please log in to the Google Cloud Console, then activate the Indexing API. Then just create a project for your indexing api here :

For example, here I created a project called Tutorial Indexing Api, if you have already just press Create. Then you enter the Menu Project that you created earlier.

Step 2: Please create a service account, like the example image to create a service account that will be filled in the credentials.json file**

For the form service account details, you can follow the example image above.

Step 3: If you have created a service account, just click on that email, which will take you to the Keys menu.**

Step 4: Please select menu Keys > Add Key, then select JSON. Then automatically later your json key will be downloaded. Next, just change using your Text Editor or Notepad. And enter it in the credentials.json file.**

How to Use Google Indexing API with Gindex Python

Indexing a website with the indexing API is actually pretty easy, especially if you use the Gindex tool. Gindex is a Python script that can index a website using the Google indexing API. With Gindex, you can send a single URL, delete a URL, or send bulk indexing by taking URLs from a sitemap.xml.

First, make sure you have Python 3.8 and Git installed on your system. If you do, simply clone the repo by typing the following command:

git clone

Then, open the directory by typing this command:

cd Gindex

Next, before running the tool, install the libraries first by typing the following command:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Once all the libraries are installed, edit the credentials.json file and fill in the file with the service account JSON that you downloaded earlier.

Now you can run the tool by typing the following command:

( if you are using Windows and are not familiar with python, just download run.exe in and double click it, it basically just compiled version of file )

That's how you index a website or blog using the Google indexing API. With the indexing API, you can send notifications to Googlebot about the latest changes to your website faster. This will help Googlebot to crawl your website faster.

Remember, this does not affect your website's ranking. If you want your website to be in the SERP, build high-quality content and increase relevant and high-quality backlinks.

I hope this helps!

Here are some additional tips for using the Google indexing API:

  • Use a service account JSON file. A service account JSON file is a special file that gives you access to Google APIs. You can create a service account JSON file by following the instructions on the Google Cloud Platform website.
  • Use the correct parameters. The Google indexing API has a number of parameters that you can use to control how your website is indexed. For more information, see the Google indexing API documentation.
  • Be patient. It may take some time for Googlebot to index your website.

I hope this helps!
