SERP Propagation

There seems to be no fixed time for this to happen. Getting Google to crawl your page and to index it is pretty easy to do by making a request in Google Search Console.

My experiments have shown that this can happen within 24 hours but it could take much longer. When you submit a request for a page to be indexed in GSC it is also easy to check that it has been indexed by making another URL inspection.

A further observation is that a page submitted in sitemap but not specifically requested to the indexed was reported as being included in the Google index but did not appear in a SERP when a non-ambiguous query was made. In this case there seemed to be a positive correlation between the request for indexing and the inclusion in a SERP. I cannot be sure that this is the case.
