Getting Indexed Fast On Search Engines

Page RankWhen you create a new website or blog, you’re anxious to see some results and if you don’t do anything to get noticed it could take time for the search engine spiders to find you and index you. Optimising for search engines will help you get indexed faster. Here are a few tips to help you get noticed quickly.

Submit Your URLS to Search Engines

Here are places where you can manually submit:

Social Bookmarking

Go to sites like Digg, Stumbleupon and and bookmark your site. These sites will bring traffic to your site as well. You can also get traffic and attention by trying to get noticed on places like Technorati, Twitter and Plurk. Be sure if you have other sites, you link from them to your new site thorugh blogrolls or link pages. Blog about your new site as well on your other online homes and write a few articles for article sites with links to your new site in the resource box. Spending a bit of time getting search engines to notice your website could shave days or even weeks off the process of getting organic search engine results.

    Hi Sean,

    These are all excellent suggestions. I think nothing beats having lots of content and sharing it as much as you can through the social bookmarking sites and the social networking sites.

    Also, it really helps if you have a small team of dedicated friends to help share your content. 🙂

    • That is a good idea Jazz. Do you think we will get indexed faster on search engines if we do share amongst ourselves too? and if we share our posts and then those people share our posts is this seen as duplicating content? (I am trying to get my head around it all)

  2. Can there be any negative effect in case you submit the site and it has already been found or has been submitted previously? How can you avoid that (if it does damage to your ranking)?

  3. There is nothing more powerful than networking.

    I have found the power of social media to be amazing

  4. In the past I have manually submitted clients’ new sites to Google, Yahoo and MSN. I find that they sites get indexed fairly quickly.

    I don’t think I’ve ever written an article on one of my blogs about another of my blogs. I usually include a a blog roll that references the other sites but never an article. I think I’ll give that a try soon. Then promote the article and see if I get an upswing on the other blog as well. Nice tip.

  5. Hi Sean

    This is really great advice, you are always so resourceful. I can see how this will all work but I haven’t had the experience yet of linking, blog rolling etc as I have yet to get stuck into my blog and really get it pumping!

    I look forward to start blogging on Twitter and Digg and building more of my network.

    Thankyou Sean

    I can see that manually adding your url will be beneficial…but how long does it normally take for the spiders to list you?

    Great advice here on getting indexed quicker. Will be using these tips sooner rather than later I suspect 🙂

  8. Does your site ever get re-crawled? If you submit your post for quick indexing and then you make a change to some content or further optimize your page – should you re-submit the site, or will the search engine bots pick up the changes – and if they do – how long does that take? I understand that if you update your site regularly you will get visited more often by the bots, but do they check over your whole site, or just the bit they have been notified about?

    • Basically, if you are publishing new content regularly, the search engines will be spidering the site regularly. As far as I am aware, they will crawl the entire site upon each visit.

  9. Thats great to hear – I like going back to old things and readjusting some wording and adding different pictures and trying to clean up the SEO and implement any new philosophies
