Many SEOs may notice the changes in the way Google index both your website as well as backlinks, some are still building backlinks and don't know that their links won't count.
Yesterday is the 30th day since I notice the problem with indexers, while I get my links indexed by only 4-7% after 1 month. I didn't use 1 indexer but using multiple at the same time for my Tier 2 backlinks. This rate used to be about 30-50% after a month submitting to indexers.
Google announced the issue last few days but it is not quite the problem we are facing.

Now we must acknowledge this problem and together find the way that works the best. What I recommend you do at the moment are:
- Stop using indexers, that will save money, we will wait till they sort it out.
- Focus on content and internal link building
- Focus on technical SEO
- Doing more gues post on sites that frequently indexed (remember to check for indexing frequency of guest post sites before you order)
- Doing forum commenting
- Doing social signals
- Some SEOs doing manual indexing using blogger or Google sites (paste all your backlink into a new page built on them then submit to GSC). You can try this too.
In general, everything looks more whitehat and will cost more

I’m testing a indexer on my client behalf the first link did index, but I just to make sure before I recommend it here. Second everyone should check site maps and use proper schema, last way is to test Reddit do follow links to index your links, someone has offered to help me test it, but I’m waiting to see indexor result first.

As far as I know, reddit is no longer giving do-follow links? what indexer are you talking about?

I certainly agree with you, I always hate google wait for some miracle to happen and things get normal - Google won't fix this index problem - especially with backlink indexation. I don't know what we have to do now, consider black hat lin building dead?

I think many indexers will find out the way but it would take months, and will it release, it will be expensive. The SEO cost will increase as well.

my honest opinion, never use linkprocessor. It says one month subscription, turns out they charge you monthly and you can never stop it again. They've been charging me for the last 3 months, I tried to contact them but they never answered.

I don't know about other indexer though, if anyone knows trusted and proven one, please do let me know. Thank you

If you pay with CC, call your bank/use your app and block their payment, it's easy 1 day thing
Same if you use paypal, 1 click and it's done with authorized payments

Did that. The bank said they couldn't stop it. The seller must be the one to stop it. Crazy

What tool do you use to check indexing frequency?

You submit a bunch of links to an indexer.
And you check your Ahref or your GSC after 1 day, after 3 days, after 1 week, after 1 month to see how many links are indexed..
If you submitted 100 URL and get 15 indexed, then the rate is 15%.

And do the same with same kind of links with another indexer... And compare ;)

It's a problem with mass link building tools like GSA. Mostly I build links on PBNs and let G index the links whenever they feel like it. Usually anywhere between 1 day and 2 weeks depending on the authority of the domain. I keep my PBNs alive with new content.
