The first things that all new and prospective website owners want to know is how long it takes for new website to see real organic results on Google. The scene is that you are a business owner and you have just launched your new website to the world; therefore, your position on search engines like Google is important. It should be easy for people to find your website using your business’s name or your product.
You don’t have complete control over how and where your website will show or shows up in google search; however, on the other hand do you know that you have more power than you are thinking you have. The process of Google ranking your website, and then displaying it in search results is automated. Sometimes it takes months before your website is listed or before any changes you make are reflected in your search results.
The question that comes first to mind is – How do you make sure that this happens as quickly and soon as possible?
Indexing and crawling of a website depends on many factors. In general, nobody can make predictions or guarantees about when or if your URLs will be crawled or indexed, but here are the basics of how website is indexed, plus some few ways to get to your website to index your content sooner rather than later, but remember, there is no set time for Google specifically to initially rank your website, the time taken can vary depending on:
- How famous your website is
- Whether the content is crawl-able
- How pages interlink that is site structure
You can cover the first bullet using social media, blogging, and email marketing and the second bullet has more to do with how your site is created and how clean the code actually is. A well-optimized website contains a sitemap that shows the search engines just how the pages interlink.
Here are some great ways as to how can you get your new website discovered by the Google:
1. Create a Sitemap: A sitemap is like any other map. It lets Google know where it should go to. Sitemaps provide the data to allow crawlers that support Sitemaps to pick up all URLs in the Sitemap and learn about those URLs using the associated metadata.
2. Submit Sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools: The first thing that you should do with your sitemap for a new website is to take it to Google Webmaster Tools.
- Simply create a free Google Account.
- Sign up for Webmaster Tools.
- Add your new site to Webmaster Tools.
- Go to Optimization and select Sitemaps and add the link to your website’s sitemap to Webmaster Tools to tell Google about it and the pages you have already published.
3. Install Google Analytics: This has to done for tracking purposes; however, it certainly might give Google the idea that a new website is on.
4. Now submit Website URL to Search Engines: Submit the website’s URL to Google by signing into google account and going to the Submit URL option in Webmaster Tools.
5. Create or Update Social Profiles: Google crawlers get to website via links. Therefore, make some quick links by creating social networking profiles for your new website or adding a link to your new website.
6. Share Your New Website Link: After you have added your new website link to a new or pre-existing profile, share it in a status update.
7. Bookmark It: Now use quality social bookmarking.
8. Create Offsite Content: To help in the link building process, you should get some more links to your new website by creating offsite. Please note this is about quality content from quality sites, you don’t want useless content from useless sites because that just tells Google that your website is spammy.
