Google Search Does Look For New Registered Domains For Discovery
Google’s Gary Illyes confirmed that Google does have a look at area identify data for discovery of latest domains to incorporate within the Google Search Index. He mentioned this on the 9:40 mark into yesterday’s Search Off The Report podcast.
Gary mentioned, “we’re taking a look at area data for discovery however that additionally simply means
that we might uncover the area identify.” So for those who launch a brand new area, since 2005, when Google turned a registrar (they did not begin promoting domains till 2014), Google will know when about new area data.
Google would not essentially learn about subdomains or subfolders, Gary mentioned “nicely, relying how the DNS is about up.” Which means, generally Google can choose it up from the CNAME data however typically not. Gary wrote:
So for instance in case you are broadcasting within the DNS data the CNAMEs that you simply arrange for… the CNAMEs are a particular document for… in DNS which lets you map customized authority bits to IP addresses. So you possibly can do subdomain.instance.com maps to instance.com after which the server would know the authority bit is subdomain.instance.com, then serve one particular useful resource on the server and you’ll arrange your DNS to promote these CNAME data after which we would be capable to uncover them.
But when the DNS is about up, I’d say correctly, then these will not be marketed. So mainly, you simply get the A document, which is the principle document for a website identify, mainly maps the area identify to the server’s IP deal with. And that is how our domains usually are arrange. Mainly, simply the A document, when you find yourself asking for the area document, not all the opposite subdomains as nicely.
Since 2004, the search engine optimisation group thought Google did discover new domains to index by way of this methodology anyway. So this isn’t actually new, it’s about 20 years outdated. 🙂
