How to Get Google to Instantly Index Your New Website

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Do you want more organic search traffic to your site? I’m willing to bet the answer is yes – we all do! Organic search traffic is critical for growing your website and business. Some research claims around 53% of your site’s traffic can be attributed to organic search. But the stats don’t matter much if your site doesn’t show up in the search results at all. How do you get your new site or blog indexed by Google, Bing, and other search engines? Well, you’ve got two choices. You can take the “tortoise” approach – just sit back and wait for it to happen naturally, but this can take weeks or months. (Trust me, I’ve been there before – not fun.) Or you can make it happen now, giving you more time and energy to put towards increasing your conversion rate , improving your social presence — and, of course, writing and promoting great and useful content . I don’t know about you, but I’d rather get my sites indexed as quickly as possible because it gives me more time to build my audience. These strategies are exactly how I grew this blog to over 600,000 monthly visitors as fast as I did! Want to do the same thing? Stick around, because I’m spilling the beans on everything I’ve learned about SEO and how to get your website indexed fast in this step-by-step guide! I’m going to walk you through how to get Google to index y our website quickly, which will bring you more organic search traffic and higher rankings. Let’s get started! Why Do You Need Google to Index Your Site? First, the obvious answer. If you want your site to show up in the search results at all, then it needs to be indexed. However, you don’t want your site to be indexed just once. You want the search engines to keep re-indexing your site. Search engines like Google don’t just update automatically. They rely on spiders — little bits of computer code that each search engine sends out to “crawl” the web (hence, “spider”). You want an efficient, frequent crawl rate. The spider’s job is to look for new stuff on the web and update the already indexed version of your site. That “new stuff” can be a new page on an existing site, a change to an existing page, or an entirely new site or …

Since its roll-out, we use it almost daily at Go Fish Digital to diagnose technical issues at scale for our clients.
