Built a new website recently? In that case, one of the crucial first steps is getting it indexed by Google and other search engines as soon as possible. If your website has not yet been picked up by search engines, you’re obviously missing out on lots of juicy traffic. In this article, I will show you the fastest way to get indexed for free and get those visitors rolling in!
How Not to Do It
Every search engine (Google, Yahoo, Bing and others) lets you submit your website manually. There’s usually a link hidden away somewhere that reads something like “Register your site with Google/Yahoo/whatever”. This option lets you enter your website’s address and basically politely ask the search provider to come by and have a look at it.
There are even services that offer to submit your site to search engines for you.
Avoid both of these things. Manually submitting your site to a search engine is a waste of time and using a service to have it done is a waste of money. Manual submission can get your site indexed, but it can take weeks for it to happen and the services are really just relying on you knowing nothing at all about SEO.
The Right Approach
Here’s how to get your site indexed super-fast, in a nutshell: Make sure that there are links on popular sites, pointing to your website.
Why do you want to do this? The more popular and frequently updated a site is, the more often it gets visited by search engine spiders. Google crawls such sites on a daily or even hourly basis, adding new content and sites to the index. The thing is, when Google crawls the site and there’s a link on there, pointing to your website, the “bot” will follow that link and discover it. And since it was linked to from an important website, your website will get indexed soon thereafter.
Ok, great, but how do you do this?
Signatures in Forums
Register with a forum (or use one you’re all registered with), write some posts and add a link to your site in the sig-line. Just do yourself and everyone else a favour by only posting interesting and relevant stuff and not doing it in a spammy way.
Sign up with Digg, delicio.us or some similar social bookmarking site and submit your URL to them. It will get listed instantly and even if the users don’t respond to your submission, the search engine bots will.
Use Article Directories
Simply write a short article on a topic relevant to your site and submit it to a free article directories.You can place a link to your site in your “bio box”, “about me” section or signature of the article. You can even take the same article you wrote and submit it to more than one directory.
If you do all of the above, your site will probably get indexed in a matter of hours. Though I also want to caution against abuse of this kind of strategy. Don’t create a spammy sales-site and submit each and every page to Digg. Don’t write a crappy, “empty” article and submit it to article directories. Don’t annoy people on the forums by posting irrelevant comments and having an obnoxious collection of links in your signature.
These things will not only hurt your reputation and prevent people from clicking your links, they will most probably also get you banned from the respective sites and with that, you’ll lose those backlinks as well.
So, just remember: Even if your main goal is to get the attention of search engines, never forget the actual humans involved in the process as well.
