hi I’m rohan gavai I’m going to tell you three things you can do to get your pages indexed lightning fast on Google .
what do I mean by indexed being indexed simply means that Google has visited your page installed the content ready to put it in the results page in front of its users ,
but it doesn’t know when you add a page or update one so when you add or update a page it’s up to you to tell Google and make sure it takes a look and uses the very latest up to date version.
there are three possible scenarios great not perfect and disaster great Google has the latest version of your page uses that to decide where to rank you?
it ranks you top and shows you front and center two boatloads of users and sends tons of people to your site .
not perfect Google hasn’t seen the latest version of your page it’s relying on the old less good version to judge your page .
so that page ranks lower fewer people see your content in Google and so less people visit your site from Google .
disastrous Google doesn’t even know your page exists so it can’t include it in the results at all Google never shows your amazing content to its.
users and nobody visits your page from Google’s results that’s a disaster to illustrate here’s some examples of how fast Google finds new content on some major sites .
we can see for sites the Guardian target writers and Eventbrite I’ll start with target as you can see Google found only 5% of the pages they published on the first day it found 75 percent by day 7
that’s a full week where they’re not fully indexed where these pages are not attracting traffic after a week it seems ok but 3 out of 10 pages still not getting over it even into week 2
that’s a phenomenal lost opportunity Eventbrite even worse almost 50% were still not found by Google
after 2 weeks that’s half of their content which hasn’t been found by Google and cannot be shown by Google to its users
that’s a phenomenal waste here writers they give up for 15 percent of Reuters pages Google seems to have stopped looking after day 2 and
will probably never find them all of those sites are losing traffic sometimes slow can be deadly to for time-sensitive content you can’t wait a week after a week
news is dead and that page becomes a complete waste of your time so look at the Guardian you ought to be like them get most of your content discovered
that first day and all of it by the end of the first week or you could even do better and get every single page discovered on the day it was created or updated
so you want to make sure that Google knows your page exists and that it’s up to date with the latest and greatest version as fast as possible .
every time you update it and it’s up to you and it’s really easy and I’m going to show you three things you can do the last one is the most important and
the most effective and I’ll demonstrate how it works tip 1 add a link to the page you created or updated in a page that already appears a lot in Google
which one though the home page is a great candidate Google has a look at that first every time it visits your site
but adding too many links to your home page isn’t a great idea either for Google or for your users and you can’t link to every single page
on your site from the home page so have a look in search console order the pages by impressions descending and add a link to a page that Google already likes
make sure it talks about something related to the page you want to index because you need to make sure that pages
that link to each other are related and talked about similar topics tip number two add an XML sitemap it sounds complicated but it really isn’t Google
has a look at the sitemap before looking at the site itself to see what it should be looking at first it acts as a kind of signpost to Google to point it in the right direction.
it contains what’s called the last modified date so Google looks at that it sees when the page was last modified and it will immediately
go and see the ones that were modified most recently or since it last visited them if you use a CMS you’ll want to install an extension or a plug-in in WordPress
I use Yoast it’s really good for the sitemap and it’s also great for SEO in other CMS’s find an extension or a plugin
that has the last modified date for the reasons I just explained if you don’t use a CMS you can always create your own by hand
but it needs to make update every time you update your content once you’ve created an XML sitemap you add it to search console here’s
the little diagram to show you how to do that a nice thing about search console is it shows you last time Google looked at your sitemap
if you haven’t registered your site in the search console do it now it’s free and it’s very important and it’s essential to this last tip
that’s the most effective and the most powerful simply tell Google about the change and ask it to come and have a look here’s a real-time demo Here
I am on my site and I’m going to create a new page there we go and I’m prepared that title earlier on Jason Barnard indexing pages on Google
rather fast using search console before I create it I’ll just quickly check that it’s not in Google already there we go no results found
for so on and so forth so now I publish it new page never seen before Google doesn’t know it exists didn’t exist before now it exists
it’s pretty boring page but we can go to search console and if I copy paste the URL in there Google goes and has a look to see if it’s already got it in the index and it
doesn’t we knew that but here we have the confirmation and I have this button request indexing I click on that and
I’m asking Google to go and have a look at the page to see if it wants to index it now the testing to see if the live URL can be in duck
it means that needs to go to the URL pick it up get the page then go back and see if it can put it in its index or not and as it says on the screen
this might take a minute or two it actually takes a little bit less than a minute but in this context of trying to do this in real time
that minute does seem just a little long but if you’re a little bit patient you’ll see that Google will finish this testing and it will figure out that it can index the URL and
then it will submit it to the index so if we remain a tiny bit patient there we go we’re submitting the request and Weavin that we’ve requested sorry the indexing of the page
I’ve understood that so now I can go back and I can see if this page is now in Google’s index and for the moment it isn’t
but if we wait I see if we take off there slowly slowly slowly my connection obviously isn’t as good as it should be and it’s found my podcast
but not that page there we’ve got it and we can see here if I visit the page that that URL is exactly the same as that one and that was in real time
so that’s how you can get a new page indexed incredibly fast or an updated page re-indexed incredibly fast and make sure that Googlers got your latest pages and
the latest version of your pages for it index there you go so now you know why it’s so important to get your new and updated pages indexed by Google quickly and
how to do it don’t wait for Google to find your page by chance it may take weeks or never happen in either case you’re wasting time
and you’re losing traffic so make sure all pages have a link from a relevant page on your site that’s already shown in Google results
add a sitemap to your site and submit pages to search console when you update them and a little secret if you have a small site you can ignore the first two and just submit through search console
but logical internal linking is good for ranking and then XML sitemap means that you have a safety net even if you forget to submit manually Google will find the new or updated page and
it will just be a little bit slower but you can forget you don’t need to submit it systematically please do remember to like to share and to comment on the video thank you very much see you next time
