Starting a new Blog? The main problem for most of the new blogs is Google will not index their pages easily. Google not indexing your pages means you are not getting any traffic. No traffic means no business.
So what’s the best way to quickly find yourself indexed in the search results? Is the answer through paid search engine services?
There are lots of services available online who will make your website get indexed in search engines but I never suggest Paid services as it is wasting money and you will not be able to know they are using loyal methods, sometimes it makes your blog or business to get banned by Google, so never go for it. You can easily Index your web-pages by search engines with less efforts by following these simple tips.
Google bot crawls every website to gather information, but preference will be there for high page rank websites only. For new blogs the page rank will be at zero. So there are fewer chances that Google bot come and search and collect your pages. It’s your duty to make Google bot to crawl your site.
Sitemap is the collection of all your web-pages of your blog, it is generally an XML document, hosted on your web server. No XML knowledge needed to create and submit these sitemaps. For wordpress lots of plugins offering instant XML sitemap generation service, Google XML sitemap is one such solution for sitemap submission.
There is one more step left, submission of sitemaps. You can make use of Google, Bing or Yahoo webmaster tools to submit these sitemaps. Register there and enter your sitemap URL and submit site map to search engines.
Attracta Free SEO Tool
I prefer attracta for various reasons, it create and submit sitemaps, checks google submission and SEO scores of the webpages. Though it is not completely reliable try it as it is a free service.
Use Free URL submission services
You can go for manual URL submission It is time consuming, as you need to submit one by one. Try to submit URLs of your top posts, which can bring you good reputation, literally not possible to submit all website pages by this way.
Create and Update Social Networking Pages
This not a new technique, share posts on social networking sites and adding your blog pages to social networking profiles will increase SERP rankings. Dare to think beyond Facebook and twitter, try other new sites like delicious and quora.
Try Adding Fresh and Quality Content
Google and Alexa like fresh and quality content, adding content regularly is more beneficial. Content creation is not easy, so what new bloggers can Do? adding the old content with minor changes to it. But never try to Spam the Search Engines.
Submit to Blog Directories and Bookmarking Sites
Start submitting your blog to various blog directories, at least try adding to top sites similar to Technorati. As these blog directories have high page rank and popularity search engines visit their pages more frequently, your links get indexed more easily and quickly.
I suggest using social book marking sites is always a great help. Try adding blog posts to BizSugar, Blokube and similar sites.
Though guest blogging is not an easy way to get back-links, search engines and Alexa prefer author links. These back-links make your blog to get high page rank so Google bot crawl your site more frequently. Stop blogging at one place and do guest blogging on Blog-o-sphere.
Following These simple steps will make Google and other Search Engines to easily Index your web pages. Try them and see the outcome.
