One SEO professional asked John Mueller during the Question and Answer segment in a hangout about a new e-commerce site launch.
They are debating on how many pages they should go live with initially. Since it’s a new domain, they are worried about Google indexing only a smaller portion of the site at first.
What is the best approach here?
John answered that they have this covered in their e-commerce documentation on this. Google has actually looked at this problem with a variety of internal teams.
John thinks everyone had a different idea of what approach to take.
They have three or so options in the documentation that they can choose from.
John recommends double checking on what you want to achieve, and how this should happen.
Also, regarding e-commerce websites, if you are trying to get these products into Google Merchant Center or Google Shopping, then there may be different considerations than if you’re just launching a website on its own.
Again, the e-commerce site documentation is something you should definitely check out in this situation.
