I recently made a new category on my 1 year old website last night.

Google indicators posts from my other categories pretty quickly, but the post from last night hasn’t been indexed.( It has been over 12 hours)

The post isn’t long( I was just testing and curious to see how it would rank ).

I also omitted the new category from proving on the wordpress homepage( via functions.php) because I changed the post template for that category to not show a featured image and thought that because I removed the featured image for that category, posts wouldn’t appear neat appearing on the homepage.

Any ideas on how long it could take for google to index the new category+ its posts, or perhaps I did something wrong with the post template and it’s not indexing because of the template change?
