  1. Hello, Thank you so much for getting in touch.

    In case you already have your sitemap submitted to Google Search Console, every time you create a new post or page it will be included in the sitemap, then Google will see the changes and crawl your sitemap to index all the new pages/posts. This is an automated process and doesn’t require your intervention.

    If you want to know how to submit your sitemap to Google Search Console, please follow this guide: https://rankmath.com/kb/submit-sitemap-to-google/

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

  2. In my case I do both. Rankmath will update the date in the sitemap and Google will know that there is an update in your post, but I also do it manually from Search Console to speed up indexing.

  3. if your updated post is time sensitive i.e. you need it indexed right now, because tomorrow the post will be outdated, I would suggest using Search Console and submitting the post for reindexing. When it comes to non-time-sensitive content that you just updated, I would let google reindex the page on its own. it will periodically visit every known page on your website, as long as the page is in the sitemap or google can find it via a link leading to that page

  4. One of the other benefits of regular posting, whether new or updated, is that the google crawler ‘expects’ to see regular additions and its crawl schedule adapted to suit.
