If you don’t know what you’re doing, it can take forever (if “ever” ever even comes) to get your website indexed by Google. (And, if your web site is not indexed by Google, you basically do not exist online.)
If you’re not indexed by Google, the only people that will ever find your site are people that you actually give the URL (your website address) to and they type it into their browser correctly.
We have several ways of getting indexed pretty fast here at Local Online Advertisig Baton Rouge that can get your website indexed in a couple of days, and sometimes in a couple of hours.
The main way that Google finds new websites is by links. Google follows links to sites, and therefore you need to get your new web site linked to by some established websites that Google “crawls” (or reads) regularly.
When the Google “spider” crawls the existing website and finds the link to your website, it will follow it. Then, finding new “content”, Google will index the information on your site, and now you will exist in the mind of Google. (And trust me on this, Google IS the Internet for all practical purposes.)
OK, so who’s gonna link to a brand new website? Well, if you know other people with successful websites, you can ask them to link to your new site. Then, the next time their site gets crawled my the Google spiderbot, you’ll get indexed. So, the more successful their web site is, the more often it will get crawled, and the sooner you’ll get indexed.
Be sure to stay away from low-rent websites, like gambling sites, porn sites, and the like, because their reputation will affect the way Google sees your site.
Another way of getting your new website found by Google is to “bookmark” your link at some of the social bookmarking sites, like Digg, StumbleUpon, del.ico.us, Propeller, etc. These sites get crawled several times a day, if not hourly, so your new website can show up real fast sometimes.
Another great way to get indexed fast is article marketing. Submitting an article (or several) to article directories like Ezine Articles and Go Articles will not only get you indexed, but will provide a valuable high page rank link to your site as well as some traffic if your article is good.
Press Releases are another great way to get your site indexed quickly as well. And another benefit of press releases is that many of the popular online press release sites have a strong PageRank of their own and can pass some “link juice” to your site.
At Local Online Advertising Baton Rouge we use all of these tools and more to get our clients indexed fast and on to Google’s Page One as quickly as possible.
