I love when I write a new article and as soon as I publish it Google index’s it.

Having your articles showing up on Google Search Engine as you publish them is really great. For the past month I have got 15% of my traffic from Google according to my Google Analytics statics.

This resulted in:
181 Visits
7.41 Pages per visit
13 minutes 24 seconds Avg. Time On Site
29.19% Bounce Rate
11.89% New Visits

So it is really important to have your articles indexed by the number 1 site on the web, Google.

My Proof

The screen shot below is a post that i had written some days ago. After I wrote it, I went to Google and search for it and I found it.

Steps That I Used

After making this blog, I went and Add My URL To Google so that my blog could show up in search results.

Google says they “updates its index on a regular basis”. With a week or so my blog was indexed on Google’s Search Engine. With great unique content, blog commenting and forum submission I was able to achieve a page rank of 2/10.

Step 1: Necessary Plugins

Google Sitemaps In the list of My Favorite 18 WordPress Plugins is the Google XML Sitemaps. This Google XML Sitemaps plugin will generate a special XML sitemap which will help search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask.com to better index your blog.

<li><strong>What is XML?</strong> XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a set of rules for encoding documents electronically. XML’s design goals emphasize simplicity, generality, and usability over the Internet. It is a textual data format, with strong support via Unicode for the languages of the world. Although XML’s design focuses on documents, it is widely used for the representation of arbitrary data structures, for example in web services.</li> <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XML" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Information Source Wikipedia</a>

All in One SEO Pack This plugin generates META tags automatically. You can override any title and set any META description and any META keywords you want. So for each article you can insert your own keywords. So I would recommend you install the All in One SEO Pack plugin to your WordPress blog.

Step 2: Google Webmaster Tools

Google Webmaster Tools is where you will add your site and then submit your site map so that Google crawl your site and index your blog. This will also help Google to know when you have published a new article and will come back to crawl your site and show the new article in search results.

    Indexing articles in Google search is very important specially for the new blogs. But it takes a lot of time to index in Google, sometimes it takes around 48 hours to index. Indexing fast is very important otherwise we loose good amount of visitors. These points will certainly help!

      You are right Sanjib Saha. If your article is not indexed fast on Google then you could be missing out on traffic that could have generated some leads.

      Thanks for your input on my article.

    Google indexes my new post minutes after I published it. I think Google always crawl my site as I publish new posts regularly.

    It was really nice tips you’ve shared to make a post indexed quicker. Did you forget to mention Ping services? Or they are not that important to help your post indexed?

    Thanks for sharing but I am using thesis theme do I need to install ALL IN SEO pack ? Cause thesis has built-in seo features

    Nice set of tips – very easy to understand and follow.

    I just helped start a new blog, and usually follow the steps you listed above, with the exception of adding the URL to Google. I also use a different SEO plugin, but to each their own.

    Within a few days, I did a search for the new blog and noticed that Google had begun indexing the site. Besides adding the URL to Google, the only addition I did was auto-publish the posts to Twitter, which I believe Google visits. Twitter is definitely useful for getting links to your posts in the mainstream.

    Hey Kharim, On my WordPress.com blog I have a page rank of 4 but my Blogger blog isn’t showing any rank. And what’s strange is that they are both one year old:) But I don’t really worry about page rank too much. Since Google Caffeine was introduced I am seeing a lot more organic search traffic on both of them. It’s so interesting to see the things that people actually search for in order to find me. My YouTube channel sends a lot of traffic based on search results too.

    Thanks for all of the info!

    Btw – thanks for joining BloggerLuv

      Thanks for the comment Ileane. Not sure why your Blogger blog doesn’t have any PR. You might want to check that out even though you say you are not really concerned about it.
