How to Get Indexed Faster by Google & Check Indexed Pages

Every webmaster is generally aware that his or her web site pages must get indexed by the search engines, in order to show up in the search results when a specific keyword search is performed by the user on the search engine. There is no better way to let the internet crowd discover your website than it being indexed by a popular internet search engine. Google is one of the most commonly used search engines. And hence, it becomes very important for you to know if your website is attracting Google search engine bots or has reason to distract them. Google may have indexed your pages, failed to index your web pages, or it may have penalized your website, in which case your web pages will not be part of a Google search result.

Google Indexing

 

So you must be wondering as to how does Google indexes your web page. And whether all of your web site content is indexed by Google? Moreover, how could you tell if any and how many web site pages have actually been indexed by Google? These are some of the crucial questions that one should answer in order to improve the search position of your website. Remember: every single page is important in this regards.

The times when Google indexes your website pages may largely be different to different sites and sometime pages within a website, because of a variety of different reasons…

Site Structure

You must pay great heed to different pages within your web site to make sure they are easily accessible to the search engine bots. One of the crucial aspects to this is to produce a sitemap page. A sitemap links every single page within a website that must be indexed by the Google bots. It is recommended to have a link to a sitemap on the home page of your website (check out our sitemap for this site here). When you provide a quick way to the Search Engine crawlers to access deep pages within your web site using a sitemap right from your home page, it helps the bot crawl faster and hence index faster. However, there are contradictory opinions with respect to said utility of a sitemap. It is said that a sitemap page does not really help in indexing even though it is a tool that comes to help in multiple “other” forms.

Incoming Links Building

Google gives importance to the number of links pointing to pages in your website from different web pages on the internet. Apart from the numbers the quality or page rank of a site is also very important. Therefore, getting incoming links from higher rank sites helps in improving indexing and improving your websites Page Rank. And with higher Page Rank Google bots index your website faster than other sites with lower Page Ranks.  The incoming links must be scattered and pointing to different pages within your website and not just the home page. It is crucial to a quick indexing that every single page on your website has a minimum of one incoming text link.

Remove Session IDs

Google bots are unable to decipher session Ids. Therefore, they confuse Session IDs as different pages with same content. Hence, it is recommended to remove session IDs!

Use Robots.txt file

A robots.txt file for a web site on the hosting server allows the search engine crawlers to include and exclude specified pages from crawling. While creating Robots.txt it is essential to ensure that the Google bot does not get blocked accidentally. Indexing becomes faster when certain unimportant pages are excluded from indexing process.

Remove Text within Images

Google crawler is not capable of recognizing text inside images.  Hence, do not use text inside image file. Use plain text instead for a crawler to recognize and index links, names and content.

Use Static Pages

Search engine spiders are not able to crawl web pages as efficiently as they are able to crawl static pages. Dynamic pages are the ones that have “?” character in their URLs.

There are a variety of methods to find out if a specific page on your website is getting indexed by Google or not.  The best and most simple one is to check that through. Go to Google.com and search for “site:  yourdomainname”. All the website pages indexed by Google will be listed in the search results page.  You may want to use GoogleAlert.com to be automatically notified when a page is indexed by Google instead of checking each page manually. GoogleAlert.com helps you know when pages mapped by a sitemap on your site show up. Even though the email notification is not instant or happens at the same time when a page is indexed, it still helps automate the process.

Being indexed by major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, etc is an essential element for visibility of a website and every page within a website. However, this is easily achievable with a close attention to the different facets of indexing discussed above to get sufficient exposure to your website and the resultant rise in free organic traffic generated by the websites.

Are you targeting buyers with your SEO?

When you are trying to make money online then really you are trying to target the right audience all the time. That can mean choosing the right websites to display your ads on, the right joint venture partners to join with, or the right keywords to try to get traffic from, but what is the perfect keyword for your product or service?

Keyword Research

This is where most people go wrong, they want the biggest keywords they can find, the ones with the most searches possible. If the keyword they found doesn’t have 30,000 searches a month then they aren’t even going to waste their time with it, the problem is you should be looking at the keyword itself not the number of searches it gets (check out this Market Samurai review if you want some software to help you dig deeper into keywords). A keyword is a link into the mind of the person typing it, based on what they are searching for then you can get an idea of exactly how close they are to buying, and it is the people who are just on the verge of buying that you want to target.

Convincing a person that they want the product you are selling is hard work and most of the time not very successful, the key to making money is to find someone who needs what you have to offer and then giving it to them. That’s why if you are selling iPads then there is no point in trying to rank for the term ‘iPad’ which must get millions of searches a month, instead a keyword phrase like ‘where can I buy an iPad’ is much better, then you know they are ready to buy.

Let someone else educate the person about the features of what you are selling, and why they should buy one, then when they move off that other person’s site and type in the second keyword looking to actually buy one then you can be there waiting to profit! As you don’t need to convince them to buy then your conversion rate will be a lot higher and you’ll probably make a lot more money than you would with a more generic keyword phrase.

Another great reason to use the longer keywords is because they will be a lot easier to rank for in the search engines, and a lot cheaper to bid on if you are using PPC, combine that with the increased conversion rate and it is easy to see why ‘buying’ keywords are the perfect keywords to target.
