I have a server with routes in English and that I moved to Portuguese. For example,
https://ginja.org/schools now redirects with a 301 to
https://ginja.org/escolas. I set up a canonical tag too:
<link rel="canonical" href="https://ginja.org/escolas">
I submitted a sitemap on the Google Search Console mentioning only the permanent page. It shows
Success, Last read 22 Nov 2021:
The sitemap was taken into account because some new pages appear in the list of URLs and some duplicate pages (with canonicals and without 301) did merge. But three days later, 301 redirects only, such as this pair of pages, are still not merged. I would like to increase their PageRank by merging them as soon as possible, because these two pages are among the top of clicked pages:
How long does Google take to merge 301 pages, and when do I need to worry and take further action?
Following an answer, I checked indexing and the page was crawled between 22 November, when the sitemap was last read, and the time of this post:
In case this was a race condition, I checked again the performance of pages and it still shows
https://ginja.org/schools on third position. In any case, I requested indexing again and maybe that will solve the problem.
