SEO: Fastest Way to Get a Site Indexed

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!

The Wrong Approach

First, let’s take a quick look at what not to do, in order to get your site listed. Every search engine has some option for manual site submission. There’s usually a link hidden away somewhere that reads something like “Register your site with Google/Yahoo/whatever”. You can then enter your website’s URL and submit it to be indexed or “crawled” by the search engine in question.

There are even services that offer to submit your site to search engines for you.

Doing either of these things, manually submitting the site or having some software or service provider submitting it, is a complete waste of time. After manual submission, it can take days or even weeks before your website actually gets indexed and what’s the point in having your site submitted to hundreds of search engines no one uses?

Here’s What to Do Instead

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 is this a good thing to do? The more popular and frequently updated a site is, the more often it gets visited by search engine spiders. Google sends it’s “bot” to those sites every few hours or even more frequently to make sure they have all the new content listed in their search results. Now, if a link to your website appears on such a highly popular site, the Google bot will see that link, follow it and find your site. And since it was linked to from an important website, your website will get indexed soon thereafter.

The Nuts and Bolts of How to 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.

Bookmark Submission
Bookmark your site on delicious, mixx, folkd or any of the other few hundred bookmarking sites out there. The links on bookmarking sites get posted instantly and search engine bots are usually not far away.

Submit Some Articles
Write an article and submit it to an article directory.You can place a link to your site in your “bio box”, “about me” section or signature of the article. Submit the article to ezinearticles, articlesbase or goarticles and it’s sure to get picked up by the search engines quickly.

Following any or all of these tips, your new site will be listed on Google within a few 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.

If you try and go the way of the spam, you’ll only piss people off and probably get a few accounts banned along the way as well. All in all, not really worth it.
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.
