How to reindex a site

To make sure that changes to your site are displayed in the Yandex search results faster, notify the indexing robot:

  1. In Yandex.Webmaster, go to Indexing → Page reindex.
  2. Enter the URL of the updated page in the field.
  3. Click Send.

The Yandex robot will visit the specified URL as a priority the next time it accesses the site.

You have reported a page included in the search

The changes will appear in the search results the next time the search database is updated, that is, within three weeks.

You have reported a new page
When the robot crawls the page, it loads it into its database. It will be displayed in the search results if it matches the user's search query. For more information, see How the Yandex search works.

An error occurred after sending a page for reindexing

If after some time the status on Indexing → Page reindex changes to Error, this means that the robot failed to index the page and update the information about it in the search database. Make sure that the page is accessible to the robot and the server returns the response quickly enough. Then send the page for reindexing.

Tell us what your question is about so we can direct you to the right specialist:

Make sure that:

  • The pages can be accessed by the robot (use the Server response check tool).
  • The information about pages is present in the Sitemap file.

  • The Disallow and noindex prohibiting directives and the noindex HTML element in the robots.txt file prevent only technical and duplicate pages from indexing.

If you followed the instructions when deleting the site pages and more than two weeks passed after the last crawl by the Yandex robot, fill out the form below:

If you used a 301 redirect, the robot will gradually track redirects and the old pages will disappear from the search results as it crawls the site. For the robot to learn about the changes faster, send the pages for reindexing.

If you used a temporary redirect (with the HTTP status code 302 or 303), the search may contain pages with the old URLs. You can check the configured redirect using the Server response check tool.

If the page URLs change because you changed the site's domain name, the search data update may take more than a month. Check if mirrors are configured properly.
