Google Indexing Made Easy, Yeah Right?
That is the Big Question we are going to tackle in this Blog Post Article.
Particularly, we are going to focus our attention towards Google since that is the Search Engine that is used more frequently and the great powerhouse with vast amounts of data and information as opposed to the other Search Engines like Bing, Yahoo, or even Ask.com.
Many people recently have been asking me how to get their Website Pages/Posts Indexed on Google Faster for the Search Results and for their presence to be better known on the Internet.
I know that some of you are just building your Websites out and are fairly new to this and thinking shouldn’t I wait til I have several Blog Posts Published and then worry about the indexing part later? Well, the sooner you do the Steps I have listed before, the better you will be in the long run. Besides, if you keep to it as part of your daily routine, this will become second nature to you soon enough. 🙂
Not to worry, it has been brought to my utmost attention that since Google Plus came around, things were Updated, and along with that New Changes made to their Overall Website Layout.
I shall provide you all I know with the following Walkthrough on How To Get Your Website Pages/Posts Indexed into Google easier and faster.
But, before we can get into the Indexing Aspect of your Website, you must ask yourself 1 Question beforehand.
Did you remember to get your Website Verified properly using Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools Verification Meta Tag Codes?
Please take a few moments and review if you have done the Steps mentioned here on getting your Website Verified.
Upon reading the information and implementing it, you may now continue onward with the remainder of this Blog Post Article.
Okay, now we shall proceed into the Fun Part of my Blog Post.
Alright, let’s get to it.
1) Go to: www.google.com
Click on Sign In as seen in Below Picture.
Simply Type in your Gmail Username and Password.
Click on Enter.
You should then see this.
Click on My Account.
Here’s another Method you can do.
Go to MyAccount.Google.com
Here is the Screen you should see Below as mentioned in previous method after Clicking on My Account.
2) Go To The Middle where it says Personal Info & Privacy.
Click on Account Overview.
3) Next, you should see the Following Screen.
4) Click on View Dashboard.
5) Enter Your Password on the Next Screen.
6) Once inside, this is the Screen you should see Next, the Google Dashboard.
7) Scroll down and you should see WebMaster Tools.
Click on WebMaster Tools.
It should drop down and say Most Recent Site like the below picture.
8) Click on your Website link here as in above picture indicates.
The Following Screen should Appear.
9) On Left-Hand Side. Then, Click on Crawl.
10) Then as it drops down more features, Click on Fetch As Google. You should see the following next.
11) Copy/Paste the ending portion of your website after the domain name .com/ .net/ or .org/ into the White Rectangular Text Box, Click on Fetch underneath it.
See the Following Fetch As Google Do versus Fetch As Google Do Not! example picture below.
You will have 3 Different Status.
Complete – Green Check, this is the one we want.
Temporarily unreachable – This is due to Copy/Paste of my entire Website URL attached when really we are only after whatever is after the Domain Name be it .com/, .org/, or .net/. Exclamation Point in Red Warning Status.
Redirected – Pretty much the same concept scenario as in the Status Temporarily unreachable Status. Exclamation Point in Yellow Caution Status.
12) To the Right, Click on Submit To Index after the Status says with Green Checkmark Complete. The following screen should appear below.
13) Click on Crawl only this URL.
Description: Single URL. This option recrawls only the URL above. You have 499 submissions remaining of your 500 Monthy Quota for this choice.
Wow! How about that, pretty sweet of Google to offer us that. 🙂
The other Method is Crawl this URL and its direct links.
Description: Multiple URLs. This option recrawls the URL above and its directly-linked pages. You have 10 submissions remaining of your 10 monthly quota for this choice.
I would choose Option 1, Crawl only this URL since most of the time I am sure all of you will be Posting more than 10 Blog Post Articles per Month.
14) This is the Final Confirmation you should see below after hitting the Go Button.
Status: Complete and to the right of that URL Submitted to Index.
Bonus Feature mentioned here aside from just having your Googlebot type being Desktop Option, you can also choose it to be Mobile: Smartphone too.
When you Click the Drop Down box where it says Desktop to the Left of Fetch, you can also Select the 2nd Option which is Mobile: Smartphone to help get your Website Pages/Posts Indexed for this as well since many people are using smartphones to access website content.
You would then need to do Steps 11-14 again for this separate function of your Website Pages/Posted being Indexed in such a way that even the Mobile Smartphones can pick up on it as well aside from just the Desktop Option. 🙂
That is simply all there is to it in terms of getting your Website Pages/Posts Indexed on Google Search Engines. 🙂
