We have disabled the “Request Indexing” feature of the URL Inspection Tool, in order to make some infrastructure changes. We expect it will return in the coming weeks. We continue to find & index content through our regular methods, as covered here: https://t.co/rMFVaLht6V

The tool was disabled on October 14th 2020 for ‘infrastructure changes’. It returned to our screens on December 22nd, so that was 69 days for our SEO team without something that they’d usually use daily. We’re now delighted to be able to say to our clients that all new sites will go back to our usual process to make sure that they can be displayed proudly in search results.
The impact of this tool returning comes back to help our new website clients as well as our ongoing SEO clients, who will no longer have to wait to see the effects of the work we do!
