I've talked about how to get your website indexed faster by Google; but how about your blog?
If you've recently launched a blog, you may find you're not getting bombarded with traffic right away. You may not even be indexed 6 weeks after launch. Never fear, there are some easy ways to get found faster. For example, this blog is brand spankin' new and yet it was indexed only one day after launch!
And a week later? Everything was indexed!
How can you get your blog indexed quickly?
Here are a few (relatively easy) ways to get your blog found faster on Google, and then by searchers:
Write. A lot.
Just by virtue of the fact that you have a blog, you'll be indexed faster. Google loves fresh content, and the more you can provide, the better!
Link, link, link.
- From your other (well established) web properties
- From a blogpost
- From a blog roll
- From other blogs in your niche
- Simply by adding your site, you're “listing” it with Google
- Add a sitemap
Sharing is caring.
Share your content on all of your social spaces; not only will you gain more traffic, but there's something to be said for the power of linking via social media.
And there you have it, ladies and gentlemen! Try all of these ideas and you'll have your blog indexed and getting traffic in no time!
