How to Index a Website in Google Search in 24 Hrs [Case Study]

Google1 100x100 Update: This post was originally published in 2012, and is re-published with updated information on 26th July 2014.

Having a website today is an essential part of online presence and it’s important that people or target customer can find your website by your brand name in search engine. Many businesses already started adding a blog with their website for faster indexing and for more exposure from search engine and social media. Here in this article, I’m going to help you get your site in search engine within no time.

Recently I worked on Two websites, one for my client and one for myself. Challenge was to index a website in Google within 24 hours. This is not an easy task but not tough too. A proper strategy will help you to put the website in search engine within 24 hours or may be a couple of hours.

You can try this with any new domain you have bought or any site which you created but you are not getting any traffic from search engines. very first, step is to check if your site is indexed in Google or any other search engine or not. Go to Google.com and type site:domain.com

Replace domain.com with actual domain name (ex: shoutmeloud.com) and check if site is indexed or not. If there is no results, it’s time to work on following given step and get your site in Google. Here is a screenshot for above query:

What is indexing of a website?

I know many people here are not aware of the term indexing. Indexing in SEO means, making search engine keep a record of your WebPages in search engine. We should target all major search engine (Google, Bing). Usually when a search engine bot comes on your site, it starts crawling and based on “index” and “Noindex” meta tags, it adds pages with “index” tags in search engine. This is the way you also control what pages from your website should be in search engine. You can watch below video from 5.27s to learn more about how search engine works:

Here is the synopsis of strategy which I used to put both the website in search engine within 24 hours. Apart from Onpage SEO optimization like meta tags, meta keywords, meta description and On site SEO (Noindex, nofollow) robots.txt, sitemap main strategy was put the website in search engine in few hours.

Well, before you try to index a website (new), make sure you have your content ready. As you don’t want Google bot to come and just crawl your empty homepage. As I mentioned above, make sure you do all basic On site SEO and then work on the below method to  get your site indexed fast.

Guide to Index a Website in Google within hours of time:

Well, this strategy should work with all website as we will be using external sites to send crawler on our site. Though, it all depends how fast Google update the new indexed pages, or if you are doing this for your client, you might like to check index status in all countries to check for data replication delay.

Submission to Blog networks :

We talk about blog directories and blog networks and most of SEO expert they were the things of the past, but it’s not that true. Even today it works. But like old time, you should not submit your blog to every blog network or blog directories. Instead submit your blog to selected blog network and directories. Avoid link exchange blog directories!.  I have created a list of 23 most important places to submit your website over here.

To start with:

Blogcatalog:

This is one of my favorite because this blog network drive lots of traffic and link back to my blog always.

Sitemap Submission :

Sitemap is created to help search engine crawler to effectively crawl your blog. Make sure you have created your or client sitemap. Now submit sitemap to Google/ Bing/ Yahoo / Ask and popular search engine you can think of. Read:

Commenting Dofollow/Comment luv

Since it was a paid job and had to get it done within given time frame. I added almost 30+ comments for both the blog on comment luv blog. I didn’t checked for dofollow or nofollow attribute. But what I did was, commented on popular and high traffic blogs. This confirmed that search engine bots will follow the comment link and will land into my blog and that’s what happened.

Popular website Stats program :

IMT Website Submitter

How many of you know about Websites which keep stats of domain or show the price and value of any domain. This is a nice way to get your site indexed. Though submitting to multiple stats site is not easy and we can use free tools like IMT website submitter. All you need to add link and anchor text and IMT submitter will submit your site to sites like who.is, “website stats” and other such sites. Here is the link : IMT Website submitter.

Social Bookmarking submission :

This is another method which is very effective. Though somehow within 4 hour my website was in search engine and I didn’t had to go for social bookmarking submissions. If you wish to start, you can start with Google Plus, Stumble Upon, Facebook (Public share), Twitter for faster indexing of your content.

Guest posting:

If you budget is high or you have patience, prepare 5-10 quality posts and ask your fellow blogger on the same niche to publish on their blog as guest author and enjoy the backlink. If you doing it for a client, buy 5-10 articles and do the same. Along with backlink it will also help to get some traffic for your blog. Try to guest post on popular , high page rank and regularly updated relevant website.

Ping Services:

Ping services are another one great effective way to notify search engine for your existence. Pingomatic  is one such tool which you can use to notify multiple service at once. Though WordPress has default feature to ping services, but giving it a shot for the first time won’t hurt. Another one which you can try out is Pingler.

If you are using WordPress, you should check out : WordPress ping services.

And here is the result with in 4 hours :

Above screenshot is done for one of my website and I just tried indexing that parked domain site for the testing purpose. So, kindly avoid the meta description shown.  But for your website, make sure you add meta description and all other SEO details. You might not like search engine to index useless pages and part of your Website.

If you enjoyed reading this, here are few more suggested articles:

I also suggest you to create a profile on Google+ and add your website link or share your link publicly. This will also be very helpful, as Google started following Google+ links really fast.

There are more to it, but that will make this post lengthy and boring. Meanwhile I will  love to hear your feedback about this post and any tactics you would like to append into the post?

    I read about this some years ago in Problogger website. I actually used this and it worked. But for my new site, I am just scared since Google doesn’t want us to make backlinks too fast. The blackhat community tried doing the case study on what happens when backlinks are made quickly for new domains after the last Google update. . They said its no more working. In fact, the site you used in your case study is not on the first page of Google.

      @Nagul
      For that you should update your Ping list and also create and submit site map to Google. Ensure that you use deep-linking method, and that is link Post A to Post B and so on. Add related posts at the end of blog post, which will help search engine bots to crawl your blog effectively.

    Harsh, many thanks for giving us a great idea to index website/blog within 24 hours in Google – the master-blaster of all search engines. Apart from all of your quality tips on Google indexing, one should first and foremost check whether their content is good enough for his/her visitors or not. Also its is always recommended to publish original, first hand content which should be purely a brainchild of any blogger. Anyway, thanks again for maintaining this tech blog. Regards.

    I totally agree… I once did an assignment and it took me under 24 hours to get the website listed in top 10 results on Google search. Social websites do help a lot in providing the required exposure to the search engines.

    I have experienced that guest posting is one of the most effective ways to get indexed. But first, I’ll have to add my site map to Google.

    In most of the posts like this a have seen that most people say that Social Bookmarking helps, but in my case it does not, except for Facebook. I didn’t see any traffic source coming to my blog from any of the social bookmarking sites, but I do get traffic from Orkut and facebook.

    In-spite when I become active in Yahoo Answers my traffics boozes like anything. So what I learned in the 3 month of my blogging experience is Social Networking sites do help but Social Bookmark not as much.

    But I am just 3-4 month old blogger so may be I am wrong. May be after sometime I will get benefit of it.

      U r Absolutely right Geek…
      I totally agreed with you

      Social networking sites is best because many people engaging there for sharing their thought with friends than social bookmarking websites….

      If we go for digg, twitter etc., our mutual friends are excepting to retweet and digg the story so you have to concentrate in that also…

      So it’s become easier to find people and making traffic to our blog in social n/w sites….

    Im doing all the process that you had said for my website without knowing some of them is a good one for indexing..

    Hello Harsh,
    SEO is the main and most important part of any website or blog because without SEO website and blog can’t be visible in the search engine.You are right that feed submission and blog submission work nicely to get PR improvement and also for traffic driver.
    As my opinion your ways are really worthy to get SEO.For bloggers I would like to suggest professional theme like Thesis and some SEO related plugins like ALL in One SEO,XML map,Smart Links etc.Even anchor texts can improve page ranking.
    These efforts should be made to get high volume of traffic,I mean SEO.
    Thanks.
