  10. This is absolutely perfect to start with. It’s a very important thing to know if your blog has been indexed. My younger actually had a challenge of indexing not quite long, he was complaining that his traffic dropped. Later we discovered that he submitted his sitemap twice or so. therefore, knowing your blog’s indexing status is a very good and wonder idea to follow. Great job Desanmi.
