Creating a blog is very easy, but writing articles and getting indexed might proved tough. The success of every blogs lies on how the Search Engines find, rank and index it. On average, it takes 2 – several days to get indexed on Google and other Search engines while at times, it might take 24 hours. The point here is that we should build a blog that will be easy for our visitors to view and also easy for Search Engine bots to crawl.
In this blog post, I will be discussing with you 5 simple tips you should do to make your blog/website get indexed faster and easily.
Tip #1: Create and Submit an XML Sitemap
Although if you do not do this, your blog or website will still get indexed by search engines but to make it quick and easily crawled, we need to create an XML sitemap. It is very easier with WordPress. All you need do is to install a plugin for that. For me, I use the Google XML Sitemap for this blog. You can install it right from the Plugin page of your WP Dashboard or click here to download it from WordPress Plugin page.
However, if you do not use WordPress, you can also use an XML Sitemap. Go to XML-Sitemaps.com to create one for your website.
Then after creating this sitemap, you should then submit them to these three major search engines for better and faster crawling and indexing:
Go to the above websites one after the other, create an account if you do not have one yet and submit your blog/site’s sitemap.
Tip #2. Blog Commenting & Forum Posting
This is one of the most effective type of link building which most bloggers are leaving out. Commenting on similar, authority blogs can boost your traffic, and rank on search engines because search engines will see your blog as a useful one. Let most of your blog comment be done on dofollow blogs. However, do not spam any blogs all in the name of getting indexed, backlinks and traffic. If you do, you might just be wasting your precious time because the blog owner might just delete your comments. So make a meaningful comment while leaving a link back to your blog. Make sure you put the link in the URL box and not in the comment body.
Just like in the blog commenting, forum posting is also effective. Go to different similar forums in your niche, make some good posts or articles, contribute to threads meaningfully, and leave your blog link in your Signature. This way you will get trusted readers to your blog and also getting a one-way backlink to your blog, hence getting good rank on search engines.
Do not spam any blog or forum, it will only get your post deleted, and all efforts will be wasted.
Tip #3. Use AddMe.com
Once I bought a new domain name, I usually use www.addme.com to submit the new domain name to different top 20 search engines. This way, it is easy and with no time, the domain will get indexed fast.
Tip #4. Use IsMySiteIndexed.com
Within 24 hours of using ismysiteindexed.com, your blog will get indexed by Google, Bing and Yahoo. Although, the site is designed in other to know if your blog or website has been indexed by the 3 top search engines (Google, Bing and Yahoo). The site get crawled hourly by search engines, so when you check to see if your website is indexed, the search engine spiders are immediately sent to your website. Using this alone is usually what it takes to get your site indexed quickly.
Tip #5. Use Socail Bookmarking Sites
Make use of the various social bookmarking sites like Digg, StumbleUpon, Mixx, Delicious, etc to get indexed on search engines fast. This is effective because social bookmarking sites are always updated so search engines bots tend to crawl them regularly.
Those are the simple tips you can use in getting your blog/website indexed within 24 hours of creation. I want to believe this post is helpful, if so, share it with your facebook friends, twitter followers and in google+ circles.
