The most important parts of blogging are crawling and indexing. If major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing don’t crawl your site, no one else can find your good content.
Imagine what blogging would be like if Google didn’t know about it. So we must keep an eye on how our blog is indexed. If your blog isn’t indexed correctly, you’ll have problems in the future.
In this post, I’ll show you a simple way to get Google to quickly index your post.
Why do we have to manually index our site?
Google needs some time, about 24 to 48 hours, to add your new post to its index. If you write a tutorial about something, you can easily wait a while for Google to find it.
But if your blog is updated in real time or is about news, you need to make sure it gets indexed.
For instance, you read about Google’s new algorithm in the news and wrote about it on your blog. All of your competitors’ blogs also talked about it. After an hour, his blog was indexed, he had a lot of page views, and Google Adsense helped him make a lot of money. But what about you? Without traffic, you won’t make any money.
