Hey Igor,

You can google this "site:your_site" to see the indexed psots by google.
For example, site:ajeet.dev

Quoting from this site: shoutmeloud.com/google-crawling-an...
"In layman’s terms, indexing is the process of adding web pages into Google search."

If you use "site:your_site", you will get a list of your indexed posts/pages/categories/etc that are indexed by google.

You should also read this article - how search engine works :)

Just did this today at work. We were researching something and my coworker suggested using "site:further_query" method. Much thanks for sharing Ajeet!

On a side note if you tried

You would get all the subdomains that are indexed by google.
