Why registered DOI not being searched up in google?

Hi,
I have registered the DOI for the journal’s articles successfully. They are successfully being searched up in the metadata search on crossref. Why the DOI are not being searched by the google search engine? Kindly help.
Thanks in advance.

We don’t have any formal relationship with Google so registering content with us does not get fed directly to Google.

Most DOIs are eventually picked up by Google’s web crawlers and therefore are indexed for Google web searchers. However, we don’t have any influence in how or when that happens. It’s also not clear whether the DOIs are picked up from Crossref’s site or from the publisher sites. You would need to consult with Google directly on that matter.
