Getting your pages indexed in Google search results is critical if you want to start driving organic search traffic. If you’ve just created a launch jack or a vital piece of news you’ll want to ensure your article is indexed as quickly as possible without waiting 5-7 days to see results. Here is a few of my best tips for indexing your pages in Google within minutes without expensive software.
Google Plus Sharing
Once you’ve created and optimized your post you should share your post on Google Plus. On a brand new website with no previous posts I was able to index a new post within less than 6 hours. On this blog, IMRhys I was indexed within a few minutes.
There are two options for sharing content to Google Plus. You can manually create share your post or you can use the free auto-publishing tool from Hootsuite. The auto-publishing tool requires you to create a Google Plus page for your website and will then auto-publish your blog feed to Google plus pages.
Hootsuite offers both free and premium accounts although the Google Plus auto posting feature is currently available on free accounts. If you haven’t created an account before you can sign up for a free account here. Once signed up you’ll need to “Connect with Google Plus”
WordPress Video Site Map
This is a really good way to index your posts and pages within an hour or two. If you’ve got an established website with authority then you can expect results within minutes. This method isn’t talked about much in other blogs but is a very effective way of indexing your pages in Google within minutes.
You’ll need to install a plugin called “Google XML Sitemap for Videos Plugin” and then activate this.
Now in your new post or page simply embed a Youtube video related to your keywords. For example if your post was about making money online you’d find a video that ideally includes those keywords in the title and subject. You could always create your own if nothing is available. For some older sites, any video will work.
Proceed to post or update the page or post on your blog.
Now locate the Video Sitemap Plugin you just installed and click “Generate Video Sitemap” which will then say it’s been completed and would you like to “ping Google” to which you will choose “Yes”. Now wait a few minutes and go to Google and check if your content has been indexed.
The best way of doing this is to use, site:YourDomainHere.com/Your-Keywords-Here
Now you can remove the Youtube video if it’s not relevant to your post.
Ping services offer another effective way to let search engines know of your existence. This method is better suited to new websites and blogs that might have just been created or were expired domains that have been repurchased.
Pingomatic is one of the best tools for pinging multiple search engines are once with Pingler following close behind. There are thousands of other services like this online but these two have been tried and tested by myself.
Ensure when using a pinger you add meta data such as a description and your keywords as you don’t want search engines to index pointless pages such as privacy policies, disclaimers etc.
There are many different providers in the indexing software market and to be honest it probably warrants it’s own post (stay tuned) but indexing websites and software offer the ability to quickly add web urls to which they will index them within a few days or weeks.
For example if you’ve just bought backlinks from a vendor on Fiverr you may want to add them all to the indexing service and they will try their best to get them indexed. After all backlinks that aren’t indexed are much less effective than those that are.
Over the years I’ve used many different companies for indexing web pages but the number one recommended site is, Indexifcation.
