5 Ways to Get Your Blog Indexed by Google in 24 Hours

Get your blog indexed by Google in 24 hours! There is a lot of conflicting search engine optimization information available, especially when it comes to trying to beat the natural ranking systems and having your blog rank high in Google right from the start.  While it’s possible to make a blog and have it indexed almost straight away, most people go about doing so with a poor overall strategy for success.

Ranking high on Google requires long-term thinking, and going out to win everything in the first day will often see you wasting time and opportunity without getting anything in return. However, it’s very much possible to be indexed by Google in 24 hours or less.

1: Submit your blog to Google

You’ve got to submit your new blog to Google before it can be indexed. Some free blogging platforms will submit your blog for free, while others, especially self-hosted blogging platforms, require you to do it yourself. Either way, it’s an easy 5-minute job that can be done alongside other, more time consuming tasks.

Use the Google webmasters tools to verify your site at google.com/webmasters. Add your blog site by clicking the “Add a site” button. Then type in the domain name you wish to add, and click “Continue”. You will need to verify that you own this siteby adding a Meta Tag or Uploading a HTML file to your server root. After verifying, Google will display a confirmation page.

2: Submit your blog Sitemap to Google

If you are using WordPress, install the Google XML sitemap plugin that creates a sitemap of your blog that search engines can read. You now want to add your blog’s sitemap to the Google Webmaster tools. Click on “Site Configuration” and then “Sitemaps” > “Submit a Sitemap” and enter the name of your sitemap.xml. 

It will take a few hours for the sitemaps to be analyzed and added. Then you can return here and make sure there are no errors, see how many URLs are being indexed and the time that Google last visited you. Even without the sitemap you will begin to get a list of the top search queries that your site is being found for, incoming links to your site, and the keywords that Google thinks your site is optimized for.

By verifying your site and adding your blog’s sitemap, you are telling Google your blog has arrived and it will quickly be indexed.

3: Use social bookmarking to generate links right away

Social bookmarking services are a great way to generate links to your new blog in record time. From simple community bookmarking websites to the giants of the web, submitting your website to social bookmarking services like StumbleUpon, Digg and Twitter can help you generate powerful, natural linkbacks. Log on and “favorite” your blog, and be sure to encourage your friends and colleagues to do the same.

4: Post on forums

Get your blog link in your forum signature and start posting it on as many forums as you can. Of course, spamming is never a good long-term idea, but some smart, relevant forum posts are a great way to bring in new SEO juice and links for your new blog. For some reason, Google tends to prioritize websites that are generating links already, so get out there and create as many as you possibly can for your new blog.

5: Install SEO plugins

Most blogs will come with a SEO plugin preloaded like WP-SuperCache or All in One SEO or Yoast SEO plugins. Search engine optimization is essential for generating blog traffic, and without putting time and thought into your SEO efforts it’s easy to lose what could be a great opportunity. Even though we’re focusing on short-term SEO speed, it’s good to think long-term right from the beginning.

Five ideas that take hardly any time will ensure you get you new blog seen and indexed by Google within 24 hours.

    Hi, great article – actually i need some help at this moment, because i am extremely frustrated with the fact that one of my sub-domain is NOT getting INDEXED since past 1month…

    I’ve my site – om-nanya.com & i started an autoblog – autoblog.om-nanya.com about couple of months back… I’ve done ezine submissions, posted in numerous forums, built back-links, submitted my blog to Google, digg, buzz.yahoo, delicious, stumble but no use…

    It has 28unique posts – it showed probs with robots.txt file – i never had one, so i created one & gave full access to Adsense and Googlebot crawlers… yet no success

    Can you check this sub-domain & predict what’s possibly wrong – http://autoblog.om-nanya.com ?

    FYI: Adsense is showing public service ads!! Damn…

      I can’t figure out why I was automatically indexed and can successfully search my shetrekkers.wordpress.com site but my shetrekkers.blogspot.com site won’t come up even when I put the complete address in google search. I have added it to the index, spammed other posts, and enabled my site feed. I also added it on Facebook and have the name plastered everywhere. I just don’t get it. How can the one company who creates blogger not index it as easily as wordpress. I would use wordpress if it were more user-friendly…I just get frustrated using it!! Blogger is so easy to use.
      Anyway…help…I don’t want to be stuck with wordpress!!
