Google Index Parts

Google's John Mueller said again that Google does not index parts of a page - like the header versus the footer versus the main area of the content.

Google told us this numerous times including back in 2019 when we covered that Google does not index parts of a page independently.

John has clarified this once more on Twitter saying "We don't index pages in parts." He said for some "embedded content, like images, can get indexed separately though" but he added that Google doesn't index all images.

Here is that tweet:

There are many SEOs that believe Google indexes parts of pages, Google does not do that.
