How do I get my blog (blogger)indexed?
I have just started my own blog, it has three posts and I plan on adding a couple more posts in the next few days. As I'm completely new to blogging, my question is; how do I get Google to index my blog. I've read all about site maps, and despite trying, I honestly can't figure out how to add one to my blog. All answers will be gratefully received.
I don't think you need a sitemap for your blog to be indexed. Just submit it to Google and it will be picked up. I could be wrong but this is how it was when I did a blog on Blogger about a year or so ago. It's indexed and ranks fairly well.
To index it in Google there are few simple steps.
1. Goto Google Webmasters and add new site.
2. Verify the website by adding code or uploading file.
3. Create a free sitemap at http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/ and add it to Google Webmasters.
Your blog will be indexed in some days(usually 1-4 days)
Mittalmailbox, I don't know what you mean by adding code or uploading file. (I really am a novice)
actually it is very easy. When you will use webmasters Google will give you a file to download. upload it to your web host to verify.
Ok thanks. Now how do I upload to my web host.Sorry to be so dumb, this all so new to me.
I would like to know how you are blogging. Are you using world press, blog spot or any other( give blog URL) . To upload you can use Filemanger in your hosting control panel.
I'm using blogger but I have paid the ten dollars for .com address.
oh I see. then you don't have to verify. just visit webmaster, add website and it will be verified automatically.
Your website has already been indexed and google has found 11 pages so far, of your website. Also, Your site has pagerank 0 currently, that means it should go up on next pagerank update.
Not sure if you can upload files on blogger hosted site but if you look at google webmaster tools, you can find different options to verify your website.
As blogger and webmaster are both from google there must an easy way within blogger to verify your website for google anlytics and webmaster tools.
Also, you can use bulkping, which pings to different websites and search engines. That will give you free backlinks too :-)
You have a nice website BTW.
