One of the comments left on a recent post was from a fellow wanting to know, how to get my site listed on google ? I responded to his comment, asking if he meant ” how to get my website indexed in google” and he never did respond so I am assuming that is what he meant ?
Any way there are 6 hacks that I used to get my blog indexed and get better rankings faster. In fact the last few blog posts I wrote were indexed withing a few hours of using my methods .
You certainly do not have to implement all of them but the more you do use the faster you will get a blog noticed.
Use List Based content
Have you ever noticed in Google search return that you always see titles like “My Top 12 Free Methods top Rank ” or “11 Online Part time Jobs From Home“. This is list based content.
It seems to rank better in Google, so I recommend using this method a few times a month when writing content. Basically just format your topic, title and post in list form and you will be indexed faster than normal.
Use Internal Links
Google and Bing both favor a blog post or web page having internal links, and rightfully so. When people visit your page, you want to give them a method, other than using your menu to navigate to relevant content they may be interested in.
The best practice is to link a word phrase that will point your visitor and Google throughout your site. Search engines will reward you if you are doing this correctly.
Don’t just link to a post for the sake of adding a link to your page . Say you write a post on “Raised bed gardening for beginners ” you could ink to an article say “beginners gardening tips” because this would be relevant to search engines and visitors.
Use fetch as Google
If you have Google search console, and you should if it is only to verify the ownership of your site.
Google fetch enables you to submit an URL so it will be cued for indexing.
This way you do not have to wait until the next time Google crawls your site to find new content.
Basically what you are doing is giving Google a nudge, asking them to take a look at your new post. While you are there you might as well submit your sitemap.
Use a Amp results WordPress Plugin
AMP is a Google project that has been in the makings for a few years. I think it was started in 2016 and stands for Accelerated Mobile Pages.
I used to use the Jetpack wordpress plugin to accelerate load speed for mobile pages. Basically what the Amp results plugin does is simplify your page or post.
Mobile users will get your content fast because your content is stored and served to your visitor through the Google cache. We all know how load speed can effect indexing and rank when dealing with Google.
In my opinion not only does this help with getting your page or post indexed faster, it also helps with ranking your page on google.
Bing webmaster tools
Bing webmaster tools is pretty much the same as Google webmaster tools or Google search console, same thing. Approximately 15% of internet users are currently using Bing and or Yahoo as their search engine of choose.
Yahoo is not technically a search engine , but is a web platform that has a search engine and is powered by Bing .
Any way, the point is , passing up 15% of the search traffic would be silly to say the least. Submit your URLS to Bing webmaster tools because you want to get them indexed quicker, to be seen on Bing and Yahoo.
Post to Google +
Posting to your Google plus account can dramatically speed up having your content indexed on Google almost immediately.
If you share new content on Google+, chances are that Google will index the page very quickly.
Rumor has it that new URLs are crawled almost instantly. This makes complete sense as part of the purpose of Google+ was to replace Twitter when creating Google’s Realtime Search.
In the old days, if you wanted a website indexed you filled out a web form and waited several weeks. Today, it’s as simple as pressing a +1 button.
It seems like a lot of extra work to implement these 6 hacks. Honestly after you have done it a few times it only takes a few minutes to complete. Try it and see the results, your posts and pages will get indexed it Google search faster than ever imagined.
