What Is App Indexing?

App Indexing is one of the most beneficial Google features that allows your app to appear on search engine result pages (SERPs). Mobile apps are quite different from websites. Google or the other search engines can index a website even if you don't make any technical developments or concerted marketing efforts. However, when it comes to mobile apps, the indexing process is different. To index an app and its content, it needs to be downloaded first. Due to this difference, we can think of a mobile application as a closed book until it gets indexed.

Firebase Mobile App Indexing

Firebase was acquired by Google in 2014. Put simply, Firebase is a mobile and web application development platform that allows your app to appear in Google search. In order to use Firebase app indexing, you need to set up Google Search Console and Google Analytics and verify the ownership of your website and mobile app. The next step is to make sure your website's content and all the links exist on your mobile app as well. Thus, you can take advantage of your already indexed website. Finally, follow the Firebase guidelines for IOS or Android devices to complete your mobile app indexing.
