Ok, so you have a neat new website which needs to get listed in Google search results? I have some tips for you on how to get this done and, to be more specific, I can tell you that Google bot will crawl your website before you finish reading this, you just need to follow my tips.
First of all, you need to get crawled. If you’re using WordPress, I have a good news for you, your blog is already pinging “the right spot” every time you make a new post. But if you’re not using it, don’t get upset, we’ll get you there. Consider reading the tips below if you want to know how to ensure SEO best price for your site. You should use one of these ways to get crawled:
Yes, you can just add URL to Google. Google “add URL ” and the first result will be an “add URL ” page where you can submit your website for a scheduled crawl by the Google bot.
They are getting crawled all the time so if your website will be there. It will get scheduled for a crawl too.
Google “pingomatic” – it’s a great tool originally designed for blogs but it will get Google bot on any website in no time, just enter your URL and submit.
Google “webmasters” and you’ll find Google webmaster tools; add your URL there and you’ll get crawled in the next 24 hours.
Any of these ways will get your website crawled by a Google bot, but how can you know that it was there? Well, you can check your log and look for something similar to this:
yourdomain.com:80 18.104.22.168 – – [15/Aug/2010:17:09:38 +0300] “GET /index.php HTTP/1.1” 200 6124 “-” “Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)”
It means that you have been crawled. Now you’ll need to wait to get indexed; you can check if you got indexed by searching for your URL like this: site:”yourdomain.com” if you get any results, this means that you got indexed. However, it doesn’t mean that anyone will be able to find your website. You should be able to find your website when searching for “yourdomain.com”. It should appear as the first result, this means that you got listed in the search results, congratulations! 😉
