Step-by-Step Guide: Building a Google Index Checker

If you’re a website owner or a digital marketer, you probably know how important it is to have your website indexed by Google.

It’s the first step towards getting your website to appear in Google search results. But how do you know if your website has been indexed? That’s where a Google Index Checker tool comes in handy.

In this blog post, we will show you how to build a Index Checker tool using SERP API.

What is SERP API?

SERP API is that allows to access search engine results pages data programmatically.

SERPHouse allows you to retrieve data from Google, Bing, and Yahoo search engines. With these, you can automate many SEO tasks, including keyword research, competitor analysis, and rank tracking.

Why use SERP API to build a Google Index Checker Tool?

It is best option for building a Google Index Checker tool because it provides accurate and up-to-date data.

Google changes its algorithm frequently, and if you use a tool that scrapes Google search results, you may get inaccurate or outdated data.

API also provides data in a structured format, which makes it easy to process and analyze.

Getting Started with SERP API from SERPHouse.com

To start with SERPHouse, sign up for an account on their website. They offer a free plan that allows you to make up to 100 monthly requests. If you need more requests, you can upgrade to a paid plan.

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive an API key that you can use to access their API. You can find the documentation on their website, which explains how to use API.

Building the Google Index Checker Tool

To build a Google Indexing Checker tool, you need to request Google to check if your website appears in the search results. Here’s the code snippet to do that:

Request to google

Let’s break down the code. First, import the requests library, which allows us to make HTTP requests. Then, we set the api_token variable to our API key from SERPHouse.com, and the domain variable to our website’s domain name.

Next, we construct the URL to make a request to SERP API. We use the site: operator to search for our website in Google’s index. and use api_token in the URL to authenticate a request.

Then make the request using the requests.get() method and store the response in the response variable. We then parse the JSON data using the response.json() method and store it in the data variable.

Finally, we check if the "organic" the key exists, and it is not empty. Then print a message saying that Google indexes the website. If it’s open, print a message saying that Google does not index the website. If the "organic" key doesn’t exist, we print an error message.
