There is no specific timeframe for when your website will appear in search engine results. Assuming you registered your site with Google Search Console (GSC) and Bing Webmaster Tools (BWT), it may take days or weeks for your website to be indexed by search engine crawlers. Adding and managing your sitemaps and robot.txt files are helpful in expediting the indexing process.
Additionally, it is advised to perform the following tasks:
Register your website with GSC and BWT
- Submit your XML sitemaps.
- You can additionally add your HTML sitemap in the footer section of your website.
Sign up for Google Analytics
