This test is a little different from the last one – before I published two new pages and had both fetched & then render requested. Whilst this seemed fairer – as both pages were ‘seen’ at near-enough the same time – the fact that this was instigated directly via search console meant that the speed at which it took place wasn’t a fair/true representation of what the process is “in the wild”.
In this one I still want to ensure that both pages are picked up by GoogleBot at the same time – but without fetching each – this is where this page comes in. The two links below are pointing to the test and the control (note that, it’s important) so when I run an index request on this page, they’ll picked up, but I won’t force the indexing.
Let’s see what happens, shall we?
