How to get a Website Indexed Fast
|Get Indexed Fast
What does getting indexed mean?
The search engines keep a cache of every web page in their
In English, this means: The search engines make a copy of
every web page they visit and put in their records… ummm, I
think that’s what I mean.
When you use a search engine the results list relevant
pages to your search, usually ten results per page.
Each result includes a live “link” to the page, and a
“cache” or “snap-shot” of the page, recorded the last time
the spider visited that page, at some time in the past.
If you wish to get a website indexed, first you must have a
website… preferably a real one that you own, not a “free”
website a’ la Geocities etc.
It only costs about $8 to register a domain name, and about
$5 a month for cheap hosting, while $10 a month will get
you very good quality hosting.
To get indexed fast, I recommend you start a blog on your
site. This can be with any blog software, but I think that
WordPress is the best…
If you get good quality hosting, it will include cPanel and
Fantastico scripts. In fantastico scripts are about 50
scripts you can automatically install on your server with
one click… and WordPress is one of them. The alternative
is to manually install wordpress yourself.
Once you have built the basic barebones website (Main page,
˝ a dozen content pages, and a sitemap linking them
together, it’s time to get indexed in the search engines.
You can “submit” your site to the search engines if you
wish, but that is too slow.
Here’s where the blog comes into play… post articles or
messages to your blog on a daily basis, and don’t miss a
day for the first few weeks at least. The posts must be
interesting, and relevant to your site.
Configure your blog to automaticlly “ping” the blog
directories every time you publish a new post.
Here’s what happens… Google, Yahoo, MSN and the other
search engines are always looking for fresh content to
serve up to their search visitors or clients, and one place
they look for fresh content is in blogs. Search engines
absolutely love blogs, because they are dynamic — updated
on a regular basis by their owners – as apposed to normal
website pages which largely remain static – unchanged for
months on end.
If you update your blog every day by adding fresh articles
or other content, the search engines will notice, and they
will soon be visiting your blog every day like clockwork.
I include a link to my regular website pages by adding a
link to either my homepage or sitemap, in the sidebar
(menu) of my blog.
The second best thing Search Engines love after fresh
content is “links”… they will literally die for links, and
if they find a link anywhere that they’ve not seen before,
they make a record of it, then follow to to where ever it
may lead… and if the link they find is on your blog, you
better make sure it leads to the sitemap of your website.
Double check that it does, by clicking on it after you make
Yahoo and MSN will list your website pages as soon as they
visit them, and will usually index them within a few days.
As soon as they are indexed, people can find them in search
And that’s how easy it is to get indexed fast.
