Once you get the URL status on Google Search Console, click to test the page by clicking on “Test Live URL” button.

If you get the message “URL is not on Google” it means that the URL was not yet indexed on Google and you need to ask Google to index it or wait until the Google crawlers get to your website.

Once you test the page with Google Live Test, you will see if the page is available, is mobile friendly, it has rich snippets, etc.

If the page is available for Google, the page will be indexed in Google next time the Google crawler will check your URL, click on “Request indexing” is available to force a crawler check in the next minutes.

If everything works okay. The page will appear on Google in the next minutes.

Note! If the snippet is changed on your page after the page is indexed, you need to request a new index. Google will not send the crawlers again on the same day so you will probably see the new snippet in the next days.
