3 Sure-Fire Ways To Quickly Get Indexed In Google

Your new website just launched but it's not showing up in Google - what gives? You already worked so hard, and it has to show up. You see a ton of other websites, but not yours. How does the process work?

When websites first reach the web, search engines (specifically Google) will send their crawlers to scout the web; adding websites as it finds them.

Unfortunately, Google may take days or weeks to find your new website. So how do you get your website quickly indexed in Google? Follow these three sure-fire tips and you'll be indexed in no time.

1. Submit your website to social bookmarking websites


Social bookmarking websites are ones which allow you to submit web pages and other media to share with others within the community. Due to their high amount of traffic and activity, Google loves social bookmarking sites, regularly crawling these websites.


Because Google crawls these websites so often, submitting your new website to social bookmarking websites will mean Google will quickly discover your website and thus head over to begin crawling your website.


A few websites to submit your new website to quickly get indexed are:


  • Digg
  • Reddit
  • StumbleUpon
  • Delicious
  • Mixx


2. Submit articles to article directories


Article directories will help your site get indexed fast. It  is the key to begin ranking well without all the wait. As part of your content campaign, write additional articles to be submitted to article directories.


Article directories are constantly being crawled by Google spiders due to the high amount of activity from people submitting articles. As articles are submitted, again, Google crawls the website including the links back to your own website.


These links pointing to your website within the article tells Google to go check out your own website in which it then begins the process of adding your website to search engine results.


Although there are thousands of article directories, the following are the best to quickly get indexed by Google:


  • eZineArticles
  • GoArticles
  • ArticleBase

3. Submit a site map to Google Webmaster Tools


A sitemap is a file which shows the structure of your website. In the simplest terms, it shows the hierarchy and interlinking between each of the pages on your new website. For search engines such as Google, it makes it easier for search engine spiders to crawl through your website, increasing the rate in which your pages are indexed.


Google offers a service called Webmaster Tools to keep track of your website but most importantly, for our purpose, it allows you to submit a sitemap.


Because Webmaster Tools is apart of Google, any sitemap submitted to the service will quickly be crawled and thus your website will be indexed within Google.

Using these three ways, you have a sure-fire way to quickly get indexed in Google. With each new website launch, go through each of these and submit your content to social bookmarking websites, article directories and sitemaps to Google Webmaster Tools.


By doing these three things, you will soon see your pages begin to pop up in search engine results without the anxious wait.


How-To Get Top Search Engine Ranks In Google


Out of all the search engines, Google is still the king.


The majority of searchers use Google to find what they're looking for which is why so many businesses and websites aim specifically for Google.


Reaching a top position is sometimes difficult but if accomplished, a torrent of traffic with be sent to your domain.




Competition is fierce online, the web is ever changing, search engines modify their algorithms and you're stuck in the middle of it.


So how do you reach top rankings in Google? With these tips:

long tail keywords

1. Aim for long-tail keywords and phrases


The long-tail is a term that relates to the tail end of searches.


Instead of going after a single keyword which may have thousands of competitors, targeting long-tail keywords and phrases will only pit you against a few.


Although there are less searches overall, the visitors from these queries will be highly relevant and ready to engage your website.


Aim for keywords and phrases that have anywhere between 3,000 and 30,000 searches a month - you're pretty much guaranteed to reach top positions with strong content.

2. Build a ton of backlinks

Backlinks are indicators that others find your website valuable.

Generally, backlinks are created by other website owners but there are still ways to build your own.

• Comment on other blogs

• Guest post an article

• Write on web 2.0 websites

• Submit your website to social bookmarking sites

• Test out article marketing

• Create a great video and share your links

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of various ways to build backlinks to your website.

Each additional backlink will give your website more weight, allowing you to reach higher levels in search engine results.


3. Keep search engine optimization in mind


Search engine optimization are ways to make sure search engines, like Google, will be able to correctly read your content so you can rank for the keywords you're aiming for.


There are two main forms of search engine optimization:


•        On-site

•        Off-site


On-page relates to keywords within your title, content, links, tags and many other elements that make up the page.


Off-site are elements such as backlinks and popularity of your content.


The simplest way to keep an SEO friendly website is to write naturally but also remembering to include keywords so you can rank high within Google.




These three tips will start you on your path to gain high search engine rankings within Google.


The key to all of these is to create great content. Great content will compliment every one of these tips as people will find your website highly relevant and worthwhile.


Google loves websites people love - create something great and you'll be rewarded with top rankings and a high amount of traffic.
