3 Tricks to Get Your WordPress Blog Indexed in Days
Getting your WordPress blog into Google can seem impossible. Some bloggers can get their WordPress blog into Google in a matter of hours, while others take weeks or months. While Google does not reveal its exact algorithm for indexing, there are some methods that have been proven to work for many bloggers.
Of course, many bloggers think that first thing they should try to get their WordPress blog indexed is to submit it to Google. There is actually a lot of different opinions on this point! Some bloggers think the Google look upon this favorably, and other bloggers think that hand submission will not help at all.
My opinion is that it does not seem to hurt your rankings, but Google knows that it's you who is submitting the blog. What they want are votes of confidence from other established websites or blogs. That's why it's better to forget about submitting your site to Google and to focus on getting backlinks from authority sites.
1. Not everyone has established sites, however, there are sites out there that accept your content on their site. Article directories are one example. If you submit an article to an authority site like EzineArticles.com with a backlink to your site in the author's resource box, the chances are good that you will get indexed fast.
2. Another strategy that works well is to write great content and update your WordPress blog on a daily basis. There is no perfect formula for this, but we do know that Google loves new content! If you can write a few posts to show that your blog is going to be a useful resource then the chances are that your WordPress blog will get indexed.
3. Another effective method is to submit your RSS feed to RSS feed directories. There are RSS directories out there that inform services that your blog has been updated. This can improve your chances of getting indexed. Some useful sites include Feedagg.com and Feedage.com.
If you've tried one of these methods and still have not made it into Google then do not give up. Usually a combination of a few of these will be effective. Also, its worth your while being patient as it's not unusual to wait a week or more to get indexed! Still, following the methods above you'll find that you get indexed quickly and often.
