I have an unhealthy obsession with being considered the world's BEST internet marketer. I'm highly active on social media and love a good debate.

This week’s link tip is going to show you how to get pages indexed by Google, quickly.

I’ve broken it down into 2 sections:

  1. Pages on your site
  2. Pages on other sites that you’ve built links on

Why is this important?

  1. More content indexed = more traffic potential.
  2. Google does not index every page you’ve built links on. If those pages aren’t indexed, Google doesn’t crawl your links.

In other words, it does nothing for your rankings.

 

1. How to Get Content Indexed Quickly

99% of my client’s have issues with content indexation. How do I know?

Two ways:

  1. Do a Google search for site:yoursite.com
    • The number of results returned are how many pages are indexed
  2. Check Google Webmaster Tools
    • Under the main Dashboard you will see a report on indexation (Submitted vs. Indexed)

Google Index Rate

 

Google Webmaster Tools has a feature allowing you to input a URL for Google to “Fetch”. After submission, your content will be indexed almost immediately.

Here’s a live example from an article I published a few days ago. Right after I published the post I took the URL and did a Google search.

 

How to Get Links in Google

 

As you can see, the post was not indexed.

However, after submission in GWT, the post was indexed a few minutes later.

 

Index Links Step 1

 

Here’s how to do it…

  1. Log into GWT
  2. Navigate to Crawl Fetch as Google
  3. Take the URL you’d like indexed and paste it into the search bar
  4. Click the Fetch button
  5. After Google had found the URL, click Submit to Index
  6. On the pop up, click Crawl this URL and its Direct Links

fetch-as-google

After 5 to 10 minutes paste the URL into a Google search – your content will be indexed.

 

2. How to Get Links Indexed Quickly

Google indexes “real” sites regularly – if you’re a white hat SEO this isn’t something you need to worry about.

If you’re building links on PBNs, deleted domains or buying links, this can be a concern. It’s a waste of your money/time to buy/build links and forget about them.

I keep an Excel document with a list of every single link built. This ensures all links get indexed and I get a max return from the effort.

 

a. Social Bookmarking

Indexation grade: A

Social bookmarks are links from highly crawled sites like StumbleUpon, Diigo and Reddit.

If you’ve got your own accounts, use these. If not, use Rank Crew. They provide 30 social bookmarks for $4 and 50 for $5.

The bookmarks are 100 times better than Fiverr gigs and they’re not spammed to death with garbage sites.

 

b. Google+

Indexation grade: A

Google+ is the fastest and easiest platform to get your backlinks indexed.

I use my personal Google+ profile to index about 50% of my site’s backlinks. That includes links built on private blog networks.

 

Using Google+ To Index Backlinks

 

You don’t need to worry about a “footprint” – I have a network of over 200 sites and have never been de-indexed! I mean, think about it. Have you ever been featured in a guest blog or link round up (aka real links) that didn’t insist you push the link through your own networks?

No, you haven’t.

For each of my clients I do the same thing. I use their profiles (plus a couple of burner profiles) to index almost all of their backlinks. It works.

 

c. Ping-O-Matic

Indexation grade: C

Ping-O-Matic that sends “pings” to search engines to notify them that your blog has been updated.

It’s a great tool because it’s fast, free and easy to use but results vary. It generally takes 3 – 7 days for links to be indexed with this tool.

Closing

The key is pushing links through sites with high crawl rates. Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr are also viable options.

  2. Hey Ryan excellent article. My backlinks at stumbleupon and delicious etc are not indexed yet by google although I’ve made them 2 months before. Should I share them on G+ profile to get indexed faster or should I use GWT and fetch them…? Can you help me here?

  4. More great tips from Ryan! I got profiled on a well established blog a few years ago and I noticed they changed over their subdomain url. So even though the original article about us was indexed, the new one was not! Had to google this to remind myself of the process and glad I found this article!

  5. I have used these all methods but backlinks for my website have not indexed in Google. We can’t submit backlinks for our website in Google webmaster tool. Please give me some other way. It has been 20 days.

  6. Thanks Ryan for sharing this wonderful information. I saw alot of people saying to buy some services on BHW for backlinks indexing… though they are all blackhats, My Question is, If we use Google ADDURL service to get third party pages indexed, is it safe ?

  8. hi Ryan
    great post but dumb question from me

    when you say put your back link into google plus to get it indexed what exactly are you `putting in`?

    – the url the link connects to?
    – the html for the link?
    – some other string?

    i don’t know what to do

    yours dumbly

  9. Ever experimented with adding an external link to a back link you want indexed on a page on your own site and hitting crawl all linking URLs to index it? Also other Rank Crew Gigs, I’d assume you don’t use em, but are they legit?
