A publisher asked Google’s John Mueller via Twitter about Google Search Console (GSC) reporting 5xx error on their site. This article explores possible reasons why GSC will report having received 5xx errors and solutions.
“I am getting server error (5xx). My new posts are not indexing. Any suggestion to FIX this?”
The publisher then posted a screenshot of the GSC message:
GSC links to a help page that says this:
“This section of the report describes whether the page can be indexed by Google.
However, a positive result is no guarantee that it will appear in Search results.
Appearance in Search results additionally requires that the page and its structured data conform to quality and security guidelines.
