How to Quickly Index Articles by Google Search Engines. Write SEO friendly articles regularly is an important part of your blogging site, but another important thing is how your writing can be read by others. While social media is on the rise more than ever, Google and Bing are still number one as a way for people to find your content.
Google and Bing will naturally crawl your site regularly to index your content. Prepare your sitemap file and configuring the robots.txt file will also help in this process. But below I will show you a little little trick on how to get your content indexed faster with Google and Bing, but in this article I will provide tutorials for Google and in the next article for Bing. I use this technique when I publish new content as well as when I re-write or update large content that is new.
I’ll also show you some ways to verify that your content is indexed.
Method I: Make use of Google Fetch Tools
Fetch as Google is a diagnostic tool that allows you to simulate how Google crawls or creates a URL on your site. It can also be used to submit URLs to get your articles indexed. Google Fetch tools can be accessed for free inside Google Webmaster Tools (GWT).
Follow the steps below on how to submit your URL for indexing using the Google Fetch Tool.
Click to your domain in GWT. If you haven’t registered your site or blog on GWT, please read the tutorial below.
Click the “Crawl” menu and click on “Fetch as Google.”
Enter the URL of your page or post that you just wrote or updated that you want to get indexed. And then click the button on “Fetch”.
Then click the button on “Submit to Index”.
Now you have two choices. You can choose Google Crawl only URLs or you can Crawl URLs and direct links. You only have so many posts available to you each month.
Crawl only this URL : 500 posts available per month
Crawl this URL and its direct links : 10 posts available per month
I would suggest “Crawl Only this URL” unless you are submitting content that has interrelated content that has also been recently updated. Then press the “Go” button.
Then you will see a green “Complete” status and you can verify the time and date the URL was submitted. It keeps logs so you can always reference back when submitting new content.
And that’s how to get your articles indexed by the Google search engine. There are other ways that are easier and faster to index Google’s articles, and this method is one that you should apply compared to the old method above. In addition, this tutorial method is a new version of the latest version of Google Webmaster Tools Search Console.
Method II: URL Inspections
Google Webmasters Tools has now updated its appearance and features. When you enter on the page Google Webmasters Tools, You will see a new button at the top next to the help button in blue and says “Use New Search Console”.
Please click on the button and you will be taken to the “Google Search Console” with a new interface and improved new features.
Now to get your articles indexed faster by Google, simply enter the URL of your new article in the search bar at the top of the URL or click the “URL Inspection” menu on the left sidebar. And then press “Enter”.
Let Google crawl your URL until it shows results. If your article has not been indexed by Google then the status will show “URL is not on Google”, and if it is indexed then Google will give the status “URL is on Google”. Next, click on the words “Request Indexing”.
You can also do this with old articles that have been indexed if you make changes to your content to ask Google to update your new article page.
Google’s indexing process will usually take about a day and can be even faster. But this way your articles will be indexed and appear much faster in search engines than waiting for Google to automatically index your articles.
See if the article is already in the Google index?
After you have done the above process, the last thing you need to do is check whether the article is actually indexed by Google.
The way : Please copy the URL of your article and type it
Site: in the Google search engine field and put the URL of the article after the colon and hit enter. If your article is already indexed by Google then Google will bring it up, but if not then your snippet article will not appear. Below is an example of an indexed article.
To see if it’s already on the index or not, it’s best to check after half an hour or so. This is not certain because your URL is still in Google’s crawl queue, results can be fast and can be slow, but the slowest is one day to my knowledge.
And please don’t ask, in what order the articles are in this way. This depends on the quality of the article, your competition and your keywords. Here I only provide guidelines for your articles to be indexed immediately and this is not to make your article position in the first page position of Google search.
That’s a guide on how to quickly get an index from Google, I hope the article above is useful for you, and you get your new article indexed by Google directly. For the Bing search engine, please refer to the next article. 🙂
