How to Get Your Site Indexed By Google [in under 60 seconds]

Over the last couple weeks, I have been working on getting a few long tail keywords ranking on the first page of the SERPs (Search Engine Results Page). Part of that effort has been to tweak the onsite SEO.

Things like the:

  • Meta Title
  • Meta Description
  • In context content, i.e. the body of the web page

I want to ensure that the long tail keyword that I am targeting is included and used in the right places. Once the changes are made, Google needs to “see” those changes and take them into account.

If you want to make the same changes to optimize your on page SEO, you can force Google to crawl your page immediately. In my case study, I made changes and the site was crawled within 6 hours.

(Keep in mind this site mention in the case study has over 400 referring domains due to blog commenting and this 6-Step Link building plan so it may get crawled quickly.)

Here is what you can do to accelerate the process:

Once your page is indexed, you still need to wait for some time for the search algorithm to be updated. It might be 10 minutes, 2 hours, or 2 days – no one knows and I bet it varies based on the niche.

If you prefer to read about the process, here is the official documentation from Google.

    Do you know any way of quick indexing the links we build in Web 2.0, or any other sites?

    Great timing, Doug. I just started to use the fetch tool yesterday, and I still have plenty of questions. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks For Sharing Doug, I Have been using this Technique from past few Months, One Thing Which i was not aware of was that We Can Also Re-index Pages If We Have Made Any Changes to Them.

  • Thanks, I’ve just discovered it. I just fetched one of my links, let’s see if it works 🙂

  • Thanks Doug I was wondering if there was a way to speed up indexing!

    Quick question to you or your listeners – what is your preferred tool / website for checking SERP / keyword rank for your URL. (I sometimes battle to find my position on google at the start of SEOing).
