How to get indexed in google within 48 hours

Most of the time people ask me they’ve created a new blog/site and it’s been months but google didn’t index it. I usually ask them to be patient and wait for google to index the site manually. But what if you’ve created a site for a cause or some limited event that you don’t want to miss a single visitor from google?

For an example, your company is going on a trade expo and has created a special website about that. Usually people don’t remember domain names and they prefer to google that and to see what google is saying about that website. For new bloggers, it’s a great thing to appear on google search results and most people give much more value to a site that’s listed on goog.

When I created DhakaSALE and shared with a business contact; he googled the site and no results were found. The expression was like “If it’s not on google, then it’s not worth sharing.” -the site took nearly 2 months to appear on google search but now I’m able to get a new site indexed in google within 2 days ~that’s 48 hours. Here are some steps to do that,

Content

Just after you registered your domain and created a site, it won’t call any search bots until there’s any content. You have to create some content or at least the first page. The site also has to be crawler friendly and you must use valid codes for your site HTML. You can validate your website HTML with W3C.

Meta data

Create Meta data for your home page. Write a good relevant title description and 10 good keywords. A good way to do that is to brainstorm the concept of your site. First determine what’s your site about? For an example, your blog is about “Cheap graphics cards.” Now try to write down 10 most important topics you’re about to cover. These 10 topics are the blog category and 10 keywords.

Now point out which 3-4 topics you’ll write most on your new blog. Those will be added on the description. Write a description within 150 characters that covers 3-4 of your important keywords. Finally take top 2 keywords to be added as the title. Example,

Title: Make money online with a better blog | BlogKori
Description: A blog about professional blogging, make money online and creating a better blog. The specialties are in social networking and web design
Keywords: make money online, better blog, blogspot tutorials, blog optimization, social traffic, readership

If you’re using wordpress then use the All in one SEO pack plugin to do the meta thing. If you’re using blogger or any other platform, then read this guide about meta.

Invite the crawlers

Now everything’s set on your side, it’s time to invite those crawlers. Submit your site on major search engines such as google, yahoo and msn. Sign up for webmaster tools and submit your sitemap. You can create a sitemap with wordpress with google XML sitemaps plugins; blogger sitemap is located here: yourblog.blogspot.com/atom.xml; go to this site to create a sitemap for your regular website.

Now submit your website on directories and bookmark your site on couple of social bookmarking sites. Now each time you submit your site on directories, a human visitor will come to your site to check the site. When you’ll add your site on bookmarking sites, automated robots will visit your site. These are the indications to major search engines that this site is worth adding to the index.

Human influence

You can ask your friends to visit the site and link to it. Ask them to comment, take poll and bookmark it. Create squidoo and hubpages about your site and promote that page with social bookmarking sites.

Now days, human influence is taken much more seriously by search engines to determine the popularity of a site. Human interaction can index a new site even within hours after launch. Create post about the new site from your other sites and link to it.

It’s not guaranteed!

Yes it worked for me and couple of my new domains but it’s not guaranteed. Google sets the rule of the internet and it’s up to them if your site will appear on search results or not?

Killer guide to get regular backlinks to your blog

As we all know, links are the main currency of the internet. The more backlinks you have, the higher you’ll get ranked. The more sites linking your blog means you’re getting more traffic over time and better page rank.

On this article I’m going to tell you about building even more backlinks to your blog. Links that point to your blog homepage using directories; and the way to build links for internal pages using social bookmarking.

Directory submissions

I think you all know about directories and what they do? Directories are the part of web 1.0, the time when people used to find sites using directories. There are lots of directories on the internet and the more you submit the more traffic you’ll get. Submitting on directories will give you 1 backlink to your site each, so this is a cool way to get more links.

Start by using this cool list called AddUrl.nu. This guy has made a list of almost 1000 SEO friendly directories. Look at the current stat, 989 directories. If you can able to submit your link to all of them that means you’re getting 989 new backlinks to your homepage!

To start submitting, create a notepad file and add your blog URL, title, description and keywords in it ~you’ll need this info on every submission!

Now start the directories one by one and submit your blog.

Faster submission

I know copying the texts may bore you within minutes. Here’s a great tip for firefox users. Go to firefox tools > options > privacy tab and select, ‘Remember what I enter in forms and the search bar’

Now after a few submissions, firefox will know what to enter in the form. Just press on the down arrow for each field and you’ll have the data (no need to copy-paste again and agian!)

Reciprocal links?

When you submit your links on the directories, there are few options like a paid listing for $5; free links; free links with reciprocal. A reciprocal means you have to link to their directory to get a link from them.

Now if you link to that directory, they’ll put much more interest in your site and they’ll add your blog into the directory faster. Sometimes you have to give a link before you can get one. It’s not a bad thing to link to those directories.

You can create a new blog page or post with the directory links (the page where you’re putting the reciprocal links) If you’re linking a lot, you can create different pages for this job. My tip is to keep 30-40 links on each page to be on the safe zone.

Social bookmarking

Social bookmarking can help you a lot to get better search rankings and traffic. You can submit your articles to different bookmarking sites that will increase the links of internal pages. This method is old and it requires a lot of effort to submit your post to each of them one by one.

Faster bookmarking

When there’s a will, there’s a way! You want to submit your site to bookarking sites and you want to make it faster; here’s the solution. Go to this site called SocialPoster. This site will help you submit your post on 79(till now) social bookmarking sites.

Now select ‘Frame submit’ and choose the type of sites. I choose the dofollow option. That means I’ll be submitting the post to sites that share the search rank. Click ‘Start posting’

The site will be inside of the special social poster iFrame (like a toolbar on top) You must have an account on that site to post your link.

Some special notes

Submitting your site to directories won’t give you a backlink instantly. It could take few weeks or month to get listed. To avoid a brain stroke, try to start with small by submitting on 10-20 directories a day.

Social bookmarks are fast and they’ll pass very low SEO values but more hot traffic. It’s better to ask your friends to add your post on social sites.
