This article is written by Jon-Marc Spatcher on Search Engine Optimization about How to Get Indexed by Google.
So, you have set up your website, and created a few posts to put on your blog. The whole thing is looking just how you want it to but no one is actually seeing it. Frustrating isn’t it!? The reason for this is pretty simple – Google.
People are not getting directed to your site because they are using the biggest search engine out there. In order for your site to be found by the Google spiders you need to ‘index’ it with them. This isn’t to say that the search engine will not find your brilliant new site eventually but it speeds the whole process up and you want to get people there as soon as possible.
It really is pretty simple to get indexed with Google too. If you type Google.com/webmaster into your URL you will go to the site. You need to register if you do not already have a Google account. If you do have an account, then you can log in through this.
Click through to You ‘Add Site’ and you will then need to verify that you are indeed the site owner. You do this by one of three methods – uploading an HTML file to your server, adding a Meta tag from your home page or linking to your Google analytics account. Congratulations – You are indexed!!
