The strategy I’m about sharing with you can get your blog post indexed, ranked and well positioned in search engines.
It took me about 5 months to truly master the act of content marketing. If you are serious about profiting from the internet using content, then you need to consider this article critically.
There are goldmines to pick as you read along. Just keep your mind open and discover the importance of quality content.
Importance of Fast Indexing
When your article goes live, it depends on you to make it public and viewable by targeted audience. You cannot dream of ranking on Google’s homepage, unless if you get indexed first. Indexing also helps Google and other search engine to determine how relevant and interesting your content is.
While some blog posts are buried and only to get indexed in about 7 days, you can get yours up and running in 24 hours or less. I’ve actually indexed my new posts within 2 hours.
Now that you know the importance of fast indexing, let me share with you the 5 smart ways to make it real.
1. Write Quality Content (WQC)
Quality content is very important. That is the only food that search engine spiders consume. You may have had your breakfast of egg and bread this morning, search algorithms also have their food. They eat quality content.
So, it’s not enough to write articles and blog posts. You have to make them sticky. Ask any successful blog owners how they survive in a competitive niche, and they would tell you that the quality of their content is the edge.
Whenever you write quality content, devoid of spun content, you get an upper hand to get faster indexing. Search engine spiders are constantly scouring the entire web, desperately looking for fresh, original, and interesting content. Stay away from spun contents, 2% or 20% of spun content can get your blog banned and hinder your indexing.
2. Submit Your Webpage On Digg (SWD)
Digg is a powerful social media site. It’s actually the #1 in the series of web 2.0 site around. It’s user-edited and can help you index your blog posts and articles fast. Search engine spiders and robots love Digg and they visit Digg every single minute (if not second).
I actually use Digg to syndicate my fresh content, and within 24 hours, you’ll observe your article on Google’s homepage, especially when the competition is less. So, get digging and watch how it works. It’s free, you just need to register and click on submit link. Then, copy your published blog post and paste it. Add your description, click submit, and that’s all.
3. Target Keywords Creatively (TKC)
Keywords are sign boards that give search engine spiders the direction they need. How do you feel when you’re traveling without a direction? You can’t possibly get to your destination unless you are properly guided.
Therefore, before you write your blog posts, research your keywords first. Every step above requires a direction to enable search algorithms fall in your favour. I employed this strategy whenever I make new posts on my coupon blog that features free sittercity coupon codes and 6pm discount deal. These keywords get reasonable searches monthly, so Google took note of them.
Whatever niche you are, find the best keywords and target them. If your niche is gardening, keywords like gardening tools for moms, gardening tips etc, should all appear in your article title.
Put the keywords in your Title, description and twice within the content of the article. But make sure it’s natural and not stuffy. I mean, insert your keywords naturally, avoid spam contents, and you’ll enjoy the rewards of faster indexing.
4. Syndicate Your RSS Feed Address (SAF)
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. As the name implies, it’s simple to automate, and can get your newly published post on Google fast.
As a blogger, make sure you locate and submit your feed url to feed sites. This way, whenever you publish a fresh content, that is of high quality, with keywords and proper density, you would get indexed automatically even without knowing.
Aside submitting your feed address, you can also ping your feed in order to notify other popular and high traffic sites, with fabulous PageRank. The more places your feed appears, the easier and faster you get indexed automatically. To locate your feed address in WordPress, add (/?feed=rss) at the end of your blog address.
5. Comment on Pagerank 6 Site (CP6)
Google values a link that comes from an authority site. What you should do each time your blog posts go live is to locate PageRank 6 sites in your niche and comment frankly. By being frank, it means you won’t be trashed when your comment is moderated.
So, look for PageRank 6 sites and above and get syndicated. It doesn’t matter if the site is do follow or no-follow, just make sure it’s on your niche. For instance, if you have a technology blog, you should make comments on TechCrunch consistently.
This way, Google spider would pinpoint and index your site.
The above 5 ways can get your blog posts indexed relatively fast. Bear in mind that there is nothing like quality content. Don’t be in a rush when writing your content – it’s the first and best approach for fast indexing and ranking. Take action today and meet me at the top of Google!
