Once your Mosaic site is live and you have checked the site and redirects are working correctly, you may want search engines to re-index your site, to update the entries that users will be searching for.
This is an advanced feature and is not essential because search engines re-index sites regularly anyway. However, for important sites, and to protect search rankings, it is useful to do this as soon as possible. To request Google Search re-indexing, use Google Search Console (login with Google account required; see also information on Wikipedia). Other major search engines provide their own methods for requesting re-indexing.
Submitting updates to the Google Search index falls outside of the Mosaic web service, but local IT Support Staff can assist. The Mosaic platform provides technical support in several ways: site Visibility settings control the robots.txt file, and, for each visible site, a Sitemap file is provided at /sitemap.xml for submitting a list of all site pages to Google.
The Mosaic platform itself uses its own internal search to provide searching on Mosaic websites, using the Solr search engine. Content added or changed on the platform is updated in search results every hour.
