How to Get Google to Index Your New Website & Blog Quickly

Whenever you create a new website or blog for your business, the first thing you probably want to happen is have people find it. And, of course, one of the ways you hope they will find it is through search. But typically, you have to wait around for the Googlebot to crawl your website and add it (or your newest content) to the Google index.

So the question is: how do you ensure this happens as quickly as possible? Here are the basics of how website content is crawled and indexed, plus some great ways to get the Googlebot to your website or blog to index your content sooner rather than later.

What is Googlebot, Crawling, and Indexing?

What is googlebot?

Before we get started on some good tips to attract the Googlebot to your site, let’s start with what the Googlebot is, plus the difference between indexing and crawling.

  • The Googlebot is simply the search bot software that Google sends out to collect information about documents on the web to add to Google’s searchable index.
  • Crawling is the process where the Googlebot goes around from website to website, finding new and updated information to report back to Google. The Googlebot finds what to crawl using links.
  • Indexing is the processing of the information gathered by the Googlebot from its crawling activities. Once documents are processed, they are added to Google’s searchable index if they are determined to be quality content. During indexing, the Googlebot processes the words on a page and where those words are located. Information such as title tags and ALT attributes are also analyzed during indexing.

So how does the Googlebot find new content on the web such as new websites, blogs, pages, etc.? It starts with web pages captured during previous crawl processes and adds in sitemap data provided by webmasters. As it browses web pages previously crawled, it will detect links upon those pages to add to the list of pages to be crawled. If you want more details, you can read about them in Webmaster Tools Help.

Hence, new content on the web is discovered through sitemaps and links. Now we’ll take a look at how to get sitemaps on your website and links to it that will help the Googlebot discover new websites, blogs, and content.

How to Get Your New Website or Blog Discovered

So how can you get your new website discovered by the Googlebot? Here are some great ways. The best part is that some of the following will help you get referral traffic to your new website too!

  • Create a Sitemap – A sitemap is an XML document on your website’s server that basically lists each page on your website. It tells search engines when new pages have been added and how often to check back for changes on specific pages. For example, you might want a search engine to come back and check your homepage daily for new products, news items, and other new content. If your website is built on WordPress, you can install the Google XML Sitemaps plugin and have it automatically create and update your sitemap for you as well as submit it to search engines. You can also use tools such as the XML Sitemaps Generator.
  • Submit Sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools – The first place you should take your sitemap for a new website is Google Webmaster Tools. If you don’t already have one, simply create a free Google Account, then sign up for Webmaster Tools. Add your new site to Webmaster Tools, then go to Optimization > Sitemaps and add the link to your website’s sitemap to Webmaster Tools to notify Google about it and the pages you have already published. For extra credit, create an account with Bing and submit your sitemap to them via their Webmaster Tools.
  • Install Google Analytics – You’ll want to do this for tracking purposes regardless, but it certainly might give Google the heads up that a new website is on the horizon.
  • Submit Website URL to Search Engines – Some people suggest that you don’t do this simply because there are many other ways to get a search engine’s crawler to your website. But it only takes a moment, and it certainly doesn’t hurt things. So submit your website URL to Google by signing into your Google Account and going to the Submit URL option in Webmaster Tools. For extra credit, submit your site to Bing. You can use the anonymous tool to submit URL’s below the Webmaster Tools Sign In – this will also submit it to Yahoo.
  • Create or Update Social Profiles – As mentioned previously, crawlers get to your site via links. One way to get some quick links is by creating social networking profiles for your new website or adding a link to your new website to pre-existing profiles. This includes Twitter profiles, Facebook pages, Google+ profiles or pages, LinkedIn profiles or company pages, Pinterest profiles, and YouTube channels.
  • Share Your New Website Link – Once you have added your new website link to a new or pre-existing social profile, share it in a status update on those networks. While these links are nofollow, they will still alert search engines that are tracking social signals. For Pinterest, pin an image from the website and for YouTube, create a video introducing your new website and include a link to it in the video’s description.
  • Bookmark It – Use quality social bookmarking sites like Delicious and StumbleUpon.
  • Create Offsite Content – Again, to help in the link building process, get some more links to your new website by creating offsite content such as submitting guest posts to blogs in your niche, articles to quality article directories, and press releases to services that offer SEO optimization and distribution. Please note this is about quality content from quality sites – you don’t want spammy content from spammy sites because that just tells Google that your website is spammy.

How to Get Your New Blog Discovered

So what if your new website is a blog? Then in additional to all of the above options, you can also do the following to help get it found by Google.

  • Setup Your RSS with FeedburnerFeedburner is Google’s own RSS management tool. Sign up or in to your Google account and submit your feed with Feedburner by copying your blog’s URL or RSS feed URL into the “Burn a feed” field. In addition to your sitemap, this will also notify Google of your new blog and each time that your blog is updated with a new post.
  • Submit to Blog Directories – TopRank has a huge list of sites you can submit your RSS feed and blog to. This will help you build even more incoming links. If you aren’t ready to do them all, at least start with Technorati as it is one of the top blog directories. Once you have a good amount of content, also try Alltop.

The Results

Once your website or blog is indexed, you’ll start to see more traffic from Google search. Plus, getting your new content discovered will happen faster if you have set up sitemaps or have a RSS feed. The best way to ensure that your new content is discovered quickly is simply by sharing it on social media networks through status updates, especially on Google+.

Also remember that blog content is generally crawled and indexed much faster than regular pages on a static website, so consider having a blog that supports your website. For example, if you have a new product page, write a blog post about it and link to the product page in your blog post. This will help the product page get found much faster by the Googlebot!

  1. Another tip that works well is to put a NON SPAMMY link to your new site on an existing high traffic (and frequently Googlebot-visited) site.

    For instance simply doing a short blog post on one of the other sites you manage. Something like “Hey as you know I have been working on Well we launched it today and you can get the new whatever here: NEW WHATEVER (link).”

    To me this is secondary only to submitting a sitemap in webmaster tools.

    Here’s another pro tip – I wouldn’t even bother posting to Reddit or Delicious unless your content is epic and your title is catchy.

    • Delicious isn’t so bad, but I typically don’t mess with Reddit. They can smell self-promotion from miles away and they jump on it pretty agressively!

      • Aggressively I mean. Typing too fast this morning. :)

      • Great blog post. I’m starting a new site on spelling and trying to figure out how to get my site up top for “how to spell x” searches. I’ve heard a twitter feed running on my site will get Google to crawl more often since Google sees the content changing frequently. Is this true?

        And yes, it’s “aggressively” and not “agressively” ;) –

      • David Scarpitta Nov 20, 2014 at 10:20 pm

        They can do more than sniff it out, that community have users propped up in front of a PC and intravenously fed while awaiting the slightest instance of self promotion. I would have more luck sitting on Hollywood Blvd pretending to be famous than posting there.

    • Dau dua nguyen Dec 25, 2014 at 9:19 pm

      I think we can ping our website to quick index.

  2. Great article as always Kristi, and I could include some guest posting or article directory submissions as part of my arsenal, it’s something I don’t do yet!

    • Just make sure they are good article directories – some allow just about anything, and those aren’t the kind you want your link sitting on!

      • Matthew Ponder May 01, 2015 at 7:11 pm

        Hi Kristi!

        Your blog post has really helped me out! Iv’e been trying to figure out how to get our company found on Google and really embracing technology.

        My question is, which article directores do you suggest?

  3. Yep, this is all stuff you can easily do yourself. It really annoys me when I see seo’s offering those awful “indexing sertvices” – I mean why pay for such a service? I elaborate don this issue on my blog at

    • I’m not that into the indexing or mass submission services. Really you just need the top three search engines – some of the rest populate their index from those anyway.

    • I know that your post comment is from years ago, but to clear things up, seo indexing is a lot more involved than just submitting sitemaps. For instance, crappy, poorly optimization content won’t index. Internal site linking has a special technique depending on where the money/service posts/pages are. Most seo specialists come to the table with powerful pbns and outside links that pretty much responsible for all of the rank climbing. Then there’s site auditing and citation auditing…

      Yes I definitely agree with you that all businesses online should learn how to optimize their websites, at least start with quality content, but many company website owners don’t have a clue about how the internet works let alone have the time to learn it. In my honest opinion, hiring a good SEO analyst is a very smart business decision, especially if you dedicate that person as a staff member with full commitment.

      Just my thoughts :)

      Otherwise, awesome article content as always!


  4. Brent Pittman Jul 23, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    I’m going to try submitting to All Top and its lists…it could only help right? Any google penalties for doing this?

  5. I would also add that you should include ‘share’ buttons on each of your blog posts, so that people who find your content can share it with others, and also alert search engines in the process.

  6. Frantzdy Romain Jul 23, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Found this very useful for a web I just launched. Befoe we were able to get our early users using “Growth hacking” now to implement this and sees where this takes us. Thanks again.

  7. This is bs , I create website wordpress default hello wolrd only and is index a couple hours . After 1 week more google bot crawling . It doesn’t have any plugin and submit this and that. Lot of seo guru is born .but non of undrestand of the google it self.

    • Really? I’ve had new WordPress sites that I didn’t do anything with but create them sit around for at least a week or two before they made it into search (even when trying the search). So you must be doing something extra… or you’re just super awesome like that!

    • self hosted or ? Big difference…

    • I think you are talking about a blog that is hosted in
      This post is talking about a blog that you host with a paid hosting provider.

      • It’s true. I’ve tested it and it was a big difference between a self hosted WordPress and a blog.

  8. Kristi Hines,

    Brilliant, awesome, excellent article. I just somehow get visitors to my blog but never knew of these methods of getting Google to index it faster. I am setting up 5 sites in the next few weeks and will surely use ALL these tips.

  9. Something everyone seems to miss is if its a blog put the meta tag from Google plus on the blog showing the business as a publisher then your personal account as the author… its really easy to do and worth buckets. It also means your g+ pic will show up alongside your content in search.

    • Ooh, good point Andy – thanks for adding that tip!

      • Kristi, have you written on this topic or can you elaborate here on how this works?

    • Andy, excellent idea! I always was thinking that I shouldn’t forget to do it once I have a blog.

      Right now I have a site and I plan on eding a blog. So I shouldn’t forget about about this great little feature :-)

  10. Thanks for this post, although I’ve always wondered why even after building links through social media and on related blogs have not really impacted on Search Engine Indexing!

  11. Awesome post Kristi!

    When you’re getting 10 or so organic visits per day on a new site and most keywords are not provided, do you think this is just a mix of bot traffic, friends, and related webmasters – or a sign that your site is indexed and shows up for some real long tail phrases?

    • It’s hard to say.. Webmaster Tools does an OK job of filling in the gaps of the keyword not provided, though it takes longer to get the information vs. Google Analytics.

  12. Terence Chang Jul 25, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    Kristi Hines I found the best way to get Google to index a webpage is to post it to a blogspot blog with link to the page and share both link on G+.

    I was able to get a total new page index under as fast as 3 minutes to 3 hours.

    I will try if Pinterest will break the record. :)

  13. Good work, I will agree with chang that posting the link to google+ and blogspot will mke it more quicker.

  14. Hi Kristi, thanks a ton for the link to the XML sitemap generator. People using Blogger should find this super helpful! Great post.
    Btw – just voted for you in the Small Business Influencer Awards (again). Have a great weekend.

  15. Great post Kristi. Another quick way to get a blog indexed is to update your ping list. I have a ping list with about 160 or so services in it and it can greatly increase your index time.

  16. I hadn’t thought about Technorati. I didn’t think those submissions were done anymore. On your advice, I dusted off my old account and added my new blog, but the submission message warns to expect a great delay in review. Have you heard anything lately about turnaround times? Is Technorati still all that helpful?

    Thanks, Kristi! I love your stuff!

  17. Thanks for the tips Kristi! I would say the best way to increase crawl rate is by creating fresh contents regularly on your site. I’ve a blog that updates weekly and Google usually indexes my new blog posts within minutes after I’ve published the article ;)

  18. Another way to get your site noticed by google could be to comment on another blog (such as this one, for example). Funny that! As people above in the comments have mentioned, squidoo can be good for us sometimes.

  19. Very helpful tips you have here. Just need to be careful this time on building links. Make sure you don’t violate google’s webmaster guidelines.

  20. William Wightman Oct 21, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    Thanks for the article. I know it may vary from site to site, but I got here googling “difference between crawling and indexing search results”. What I was really looking for was the length of time before Google indexes site and it shows up in search results, after being crawled. Any idea?

  21. Kris Angeloff Oct 25, 2012 at 5:28 am

    Another way that is not mentioned in the article is to make use of Pingomatic and “ping” each new page or post when you post it.

  22. I have found this blog via Google. This is really a nice blog and I have bookmarked this blog for my future resources. Thanks for sharing this information– I think this is really helpful for the SEO people. Even it helped me a lot. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. Love to see more from you.

  23. Thank you for your nice tips. If I change the permalink of a post and want to re-index it, is it possible?

  24. Thanks for these amazing tips. I do think that posting a link to the site on on Digg, Twitter, Reddit, Google Plus and some other social media sites gains more attention of the crawlers and help us in indexing our URL.

  25. Excellent tip.. Along with Google, you can consider other search engines as well even though the percentage traffic is less compared to google.

  26. I’ve just pushed out a new blog and was trying to index it fast. I did all the steps above and now Google indexes my blog quickly.
    PS: Time plays a major role. You cant index any new blog within a proper time limit.

  27. Are people seeing any results with adding your site to Delicious, StumbleUpon, etc? I thought this form of back linking was pretty much dead. I’d love to hear some real results from this, if anyone happens to have any. Thanks!

  28. Kristi,

    Great article. Do you have any suggestions on a company/service to help me accomplish the steps you suggest? I’m not very technically adept and will undoubtedly get frustrated trying to accomplish these things myself. Therefore they won’t get done and I understand the need.


  29. I consider myself moderately educated and experienced in the creation of websites, and how the internet works as a whole, but there were still some important tips I didn’t know until I read your article!

    Thanks for the value, as what I learned here (Google XML plugin, as well as other resources listed), will help me when I am creating a new website for a client.

  30. Asa Griggs Candler Feb 13, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    Really a very good article. I am going to implement many of the things you have mentioned in my website for getting it listed and indexed by Google and other major search engines

  31. Some 2-3 months back my webpages used to get indexed in very short time without any effort but now things have changed they get indexed after 2 weeks. I hope after trying above mentioned steps my website will get some benefits.

  32. Great article. I done pretty much all that, and had site up about week and half now. It is just starting to show on google search. So hopefully it will pick up more soon.

    • I also have a forum that is starting slow too. First time really doing a forum. I need some moderators for it. I guess I will see how it goes.

  33. I never thought that even nofollow links from Social sites could prove to be a signal for Search engines. Nice post.. Thanks for guidelines.

  34. Hi,

    Very nice and informative post, though I just launched a new website but it still not indexed in google webmaster tool after 2 weeks.

    Any idea, what could be stopping it?

    Thanks in advance

  35. Hey, I just launched a tutorial website. I do know how to get a website indexed by Google but the problem I am phasing with this website is that, it get’s Indexed by Google and shows up some time on fourth page but other times, It just gets out of Google Index.

    I use Firefox and I always check my website ranking by doing a private search. I don’t know why is this happening.

    Any, suggestions will be highly worth.

  36. stuart McCloud Mar 28, 2013 at 8:28 am

    Have submitted a site map etc, but still no new indexed pages :( We have about 350 pages still waiting to be indexed! Great article though!

  37. Hi Kristi,

    This is the information i really needed. I have 4 sites and 3 new one within the last 3 months. With new sites taking time to index, i have just today added a blog page to all three. SO with your advice i can now add them to the suggested sites. Thank you!!


  38. Awesome info Kristi! I’ve just set up a new website and was trying to figure out exactly how to get it indexed quickly with Google. This article is exactly what I was looking for!
    Thank you so much :)

  39. Nice post. I understand something much more difficult on unique blogs everyday. It is going to generally be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a bit some thing from their store.

  40. Ranap Sianturi Apr 08, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    My site just get indexed after 3 days using this tips, this is awesome btw. Thanks a lot

  41. Thanks for this post – i really needed to get my sitemaps sorted and you explained it clearly.

    I came here because my content was being scraped from my site to a number of blogspots and they were indexing much faster than my site – in fact even in omitted results when searching paragraph chunks using quotes in the search, my site was still not being picked up even after using a few of the methods listed above plus others,

    Hopefully this will speed up the process,


  42. Hi there, thanks for the article. One question regarding using the XML sitemap plugin for google – I’ve activated it and generated the sitemap – I assume this is now on my server and visible to google. BUT do I need to also create an actual, visible “site map” page/link on my website and manually submit that to google?

  43. The techniques were very helpful. I was not aware that creating social profiles will help get my webpage indexed.

  44. Our site was down for more than a month and got de-indexed, is it possible that we’ll have re-indexed and get our position from google serps?

  45. How to i get to know the site is indexed or not

    • Webmaster Tools should tell you (especially if you submit a sitemap). Also, you can go to Google and type the following, to see what Google has indexed:

  46. What a great article. I am printing this out and using for future references. Had no idea about the XML sitemap. Really great post!! Thanks so much!

  47. I loved this post. I was confused why my post is not cached yet..As you have mentioned in you post, can I submit my every new post to Google? Does it has any negative effect?

  48. Great article Kristi,
    I did setup my new blog and it has been just 4 days. Though it is not appearing in search results yet, when I do a site:myblogname it does show all the pages of my blog.Hope things are progressing well.

    Google Webmaster Tool (index status) si yet to show any number there,

  49. Thanks for these tips. I have implemented them, however, I still don’t understand I added a link, but I can’t see it. However, I believe that the social profile links will get my website indexed as soon as possible. Thanks!

  50. I’m always looking for more ways for both my blog and my website to rank higher in search engine rankings. Feeling a little intimidated by that huge list of blog directories. Will have to sit down one day and submit my sites to them :)

  51. Great article as always Kristi, and I could include some guest posting or article directory submissions as part of my arsenal, it’s something I don’t do yet!

  52. Great article. I’ve written some great content for my site and it’s indexed on Bing already, but Google is taking its own sweet time to index my site.

    I’m hoping some of these tips can make them move a little faster. Thanks!!!

  53. My favorite way of getting a new blog post quickly indexed is to share it on my Google Plus business page and profile. This seems to really expedite the indexing process.

  54. Yeah!
    Thanks for this cool article..
    Just started a new blog and was searching for all the essential basic info.
    Found this very helpful !!
    Thanks Kissmetrics :D

  55. Zakelijke Energie Oct 08, 2014 at 9:55 am

    I was just wondering if there is any way to get a notification when a google bot crawls your website. I mean existing websites that has new content.

  56. Is there a way to know what are the pages currently indexed?
    I haven’t found nothing so far.
    Further, what happen to page written in more languages, are all the different language summing up?

  57. Thanks for the info, I am pretty new to SEO and finding out lots of new information all the time, and its quite overwhelming.
    Should I just index one page of my blog or should I submit each new page of the blog for indexing?

  58. David Scarpitta Nov 20, 2014 at 10:17 pm

    Well, these are some helpful tips to help get it “indexed quickly” though getting indexed and getting ranked are totally 2 different things. There are literally thousands of sites everyday that get indexed but only a handful will rank with continued efforts.

  59. Richard Gilbert Dec 01, 2014 at 9:28 am

    Just what I was looking for, My website is a month old and is index in Google but its not showing up the rankings at all looked right up to page 30. Yet only 3 days ago it was on page 8 for a set off keywords related to my business. Does anyone have any idea why this is?

    Another problem i am having is my title tags are not showing as they should at all keeps showing my domain name in the title. All my on page seo is done, I have built over 50 sites before never has this ever come up as a problem.

  60. This is awesome! Definitely didn’t know about the free site submission tools.

    Thanks for sharing

  61. Our site was down for more than a month and got de-indexed, is it possible that we’ll have re-indexed and get our position from google serps?

  62. I personally think that the ‘Fetch’ option provided in the GWT is really very helpful for faster indexing, particularly for new blogs. A blog not having a lot of backlinks can certainly use this feature for faster indexing.

  63. Michael MIner Jan 02, 2015 at 7:12 am

    As a video marketer I would like to add that you want the title of your YouTube video to be a main keyword search term, so here in Utah when I post a video on YouTube I want to title it something like “Utah Video Production Company” or Utah Web Marketing Videos” then when I add my URL in the description (Make sure to include your full URL including http://) your link to your website will also have your main keyword search term as the title of your video linked to your website in the description! This is super link juice and helps tremendously!

  64. Technoratti is no longer a blog search engine, they’ve become an advertising media firm, you can buy ads and sell advertising space.

  65. The way I got on Google in 5 minutes was first creating a site map and some basic SEO friendly pages. Create some content and now your ready to roll. Submit your website to search engines to crawl and create a few comments or leave your website address on a few trusted websites. Now your noticed.

  66. I have made almost all this steps and i still struggling with no indexation. I bought my domain and it still has some links. Could that cause my problems?

  67. Beautiful! I went through most of these steps and now I’m indexed. I’m not high in the page rankings yet but good to know that I’m out there now. Greatly appreciate the useful tips
    I actually detailed me going through these steps on for the site and some of the issues I experienced, including some problems with getting the sitemap to work on Google and Bing webmaster tools. Ultimately I used Yoast for the wordpress plugin and it fixed the problems.

    Again, thanks so much!

  68. It’s important that one should post regularly as Google crawls a website according to a time difference of blog posts and other activities. So, overall being regular is key to fast indexing and these tools comes handy too. Awesome post

    • I completely agree with your comment, I notice a slight drop in rankings after about a month without any updated posts. Regularly publishing new posts and internally linking your posts and pages does really make a huge difference!


  69. Indeed this information is good, when I applied it to my newly developed website, it was indexed with in 24 hours. Else I have heard that sometimes a site might not be indexed even after 6 months, as that happened to my friends website. I have referred this article to him. Hope he will also get indexed in google. Keep it up….

  70. Hi Kristi: thank you so much for this great article! Hey I have a quick question: I’d like to start a blog, but don’t know if it’s as simple as creating another link on my website, you know a tab saying “blog” or whatever? What do you think? And can you think of a better tab title than blog? I can’t right now anyway. I wish you the best of luck with your business! Thank you in advance, Patrick Weill

  71. I am doing off page seo. Rarely update my content on blog or article websites. But my website pages is not index. It is true that i have to submit content on my website to get well indexing or you have any suggestion for index the all pages ?

  72. Great information, thanks for sharing this. I have one issue; google has indexed some link starting with https, I don’t why? Any idea anybody? Thanks Regards

  73. Awesome post. I tried all the tips listed above an hope they will be of help. Cause have been having problem with traffic and indexing lately. Almost gave up.
    So! Thanks again for sharing this with us.
    Looking forward for update on this topic soon.

  74. I recently just learned about pinging. What are your opinions on pinging a new blog post, or should you let it naturally get discovered?

  75. Thanks for helpful article i have download and installed Google XML Sitemaps plugin for my word press blog and Working is Awesome.This plugin must for beginners in word press blog.

  76. I have Submited all of thing like Sitmap Verified my website like TAg mangger and othere verification but till now i dint get index :(

    its almost 2 weeks done

  77. Hi
    Good job!
    I got a question! I have disabled my RSS because of the website that steals other websites contents by rss!
    However I get alot of server errors in GWT because of disabling RSS!
    What should i do? is that ok if i keep disabling the rss of my website?

  78. What do you think about content uniqueness? Great article, btw. I think for getting your site well indexed in a long run, one should also consider uniqueness and genuineness of your website content. No copy and get a unique site.

  79. +Usman. glad you raised that point.
    Over the course of this year many search bots have started to focus, not just on content, but the quality of content. Now whilst quality is subjective, unique content is easily measured and is an important concept in getting seen or not. Matters not if you are a commercial website or amateur blogger, if you produce [or worse, reproduce] crap you will slide into oblivion.
    For what it is worth, a hint for commercial sites trying to reach the Chinese consumer, not only is Content vital, but intimacy and relationships are key, the move now is towards one to one relationships to build loyalty and ultimately sales of course.

  80. I have recently created a blog on blogger but my problem it Google is not indexing them. I created and submitted a sitemap on webmaster. Shared post on more than dozens of website. Where as my another 5-6 day older blog on different websites like wordpress, weebly is indexed within 3 days. Should I need to change any setting in robots.txt or somewhere else. Is I am missing something in blogger? Please help!!

    • Hi
      You’d probably need to add meta tags into blogspot script. Inserting tags such as meta name, meta title, meta keywords (long tail), meta author. These will help in getting your site shows up in searches. These efforts are only the tip of an iceberg. Good luck.

  81. Hello,

    I really enjoyed your article and it has helpful information. I’m a very new notary public and also work part time in an office. Due to a limited budget, I set up my website on go daddy and even though I’m not thrilled with it, it will have to do for a year or two. I need to get my website indexed by Google and plan on following your tips.

    Is it really necessary to blog when your in a field such as mine. Truly, I do not know what I would blog about since all information is confidential and appointments are fairly short.

    Any help you can offer about this is appreciated.


    • Kelli,

      Blogging is important, even if (for example) all you want to do is sell stuff.

      I’ll wager you do have stuff to say. You might have confidentiality things, but if you change names, refer to people in a different POV (him/her, a client, etc,), or write in general terms, you should be OK.

      I would talk to a lawyer, to make sure though.

      The point is, write. Quality content is important!

  82. Got to find a new trick to tell google to index my new page…but cannot find the tools option in webmasters….!!

  83. Thanks for the article! We used some of the tips for our new website and got google indexed within FIVE HOURS. We had read that it would take much longer than that, and were pleasantly surprised.

    For those wondering how we did it:
    Our website has only been up and running for four days.
    We submitted our website to google by using google webmaster and adding the meta header HTML code to our wix website five hours before we got indexed.
    We posted a link to our website on Facebook and Twitter (which had no followers, mind you)
    We also posted a link on our google+ page. I think this helped a ton. After we did this part, the website was indexed in only an hour. (Also no followers on google+)

    That’s all we did !

    Thanks for the tips!
