How to index new blog on Google quickly

When was the last time you went to a website directly to get information

without searching for it? With the advent of a digital world, billions of

information have been made easily accessible using “Search engines”

and as you read this, Google is still the No1 search engine with about 4.3

billion users worldwide, huge right! With these values, most businesses

and websites want to be ranked high on Google and if not even gaining a

high rank,at least getting Google to index their blog quickly is


When people search using keywords, Google employs its index to fetch

the relevant content match for the search. This simply means if your blog

isn’t indexed on Google, then you are missing out on 4.3 billion users

that have the opportunity to see your blog which in other ways can be

disastrous to your blog.

Organic search traffic is so important to your blog’s growth that it claims

53% of your site’s traffic( Meanwhile, these stats don’t

count if your blog doesn’t show up in search results at all.

How do you get your new blog indexed by Google?

You have two choices.

You may decide to take the slow approach just to sit back and watch

after publishing a post for it to happen naturally, this should take you

two weeks and sometimes, months and this is not fun.

Or you may decide to make it happen now which will thereby give you

more time and energy to put towards increasing your conversion rate

and promoting great and beneficial contents.

And If I were to choose , I’d rather have my site indexed as fast as

possible because it will create more time for me to build my audience.

What is Google Index and why do you need Google to index your blog?

Google Index is a collection of all web pages that has been Crawled and

Identified by Google. If your blog is not Indexed by Google, then it is

100% not going to appear on Google search and you won’t have any

organic traffic whatsoever.

So How does Google Index?

Google discovers new web pages or blog posts by crawling the web, and

then they add those pages to their index. They do this using web spiders

called bots.

Do you find some strange words here? Let’s break them down.

● Crawling: This is the process of using hyperlinks on the web to

discover new contents.

● Bots: These are Google’s software that systematically searches the

web for new content by following links,they do the crawling.

● Indexing: The Process of storing every web page in a vast database.

So whenever a search is made, you are asking Google to return

everything related to the search from their index and here, we have

millions of content to be displayed. This is where ranking comes in to

fetch out the most relevant and if you were thinking indexing and

ranking are the same, then by now you should know they are different.

Indexing is showing up for the race; ranking is winning.

You can’t win without showing up for the race in the first place


How often your blog is indexed can affect your blog performance in

search results and you would also want to make sure your latest content

is available for those searching and for the bots too all the time.

So here are steps to take in order to get your blog indexed as quickly as



Step1 1: Confirming if your blog is already indexed.

Unless you have a new blog, your blog is most likely to have been


If you are not sure,here is a simple way to find out:

Go to Google and search . if Google knows your site

exists and has already crawled it, you will see it in the results.

Step 2: Submit your blog to Google Search Console

Google Search Console is a free platform created by Google to help

publishers and bloggers check their sites indexing and how visible they

are on Google.

In order to make use of the Google search Console,

1. You need to sign up with your Google account at Google Search


2. Then, add a new web property, enter your site name.

3. Verify your blog by using the verification tool provided and adding

it to your blog. This code can be added to the theme’s header.php or if

you are using a child theme, you can insert it using plugins like Headers

and Footers for WordPress.

As soon as this verification takes place, it will be a sign to Google that

your site exists.

Ste 3: Submit your sitemap

Your sitemap is a file where you tell Google and other search engines

how you have organized the content of your website. Although search

engines can examine your site without this file, they can do so more

intelligently when you have a sitemap in place.

Using sitemaps is particularly useful for large websites, very new

websites or sites with pages that are not well linked together, and

probably sites with rich media content.


You may already have a sitemap, created automatically. For a blog owner,

most platforms provide you with an RSS file,which you can also submit as

a sitemap. Check your hosting service or blogging platform support to

see where this file is located.

Step 4: Install and set up Google Analytics

Google analytics measures stats about your website like visitors, time

spent on the site, what pages they looked at and where they are from. To

set up Google analytics, here are few steps to take;

1. Visit

2. Sign in with your Google account.

3. After you log in, then click Sign up.

4. Enter your blog/website name , then click get tracking ID.

5. If you are using wordpress or other CMS requesting for your

Google Analytics tracking ID, just paste the tracking ID.

6. For the WordPress plugin Google Analytics by MonsterInsights is

really easy to set up.

7. After downloading the plugin, ‘Authenticate’ it and it will walk you

through the rest.

Meanwhile, if you are not using WordPress and you are required to paste

it manually, all you need to do is to copy the code written on Website

tracking on the analytics page and paste on all your website pages.

Step 5 : Create a Content Marketing Strategy:

Writing a content marketing strategy that is centered on search results is

a good one, but that’s not all. According to Content Marketing Institute:

Those with documented content marketing strategy:

● Are far more likely to consider themselves effective at content


● Don’t feel too challenged when it comes to every aspect of content


● Are able to justify spending a higher percentage of their marketing

budget on content marketing.

In addition, keeping your focus on goals, a documented content strategy

also helps your site get indexed by creating new pages of content.


According to Hubspot’s “ Notanother state of marketing report 2020’’,

60% of content marketers said content is very important to their overall


Another study found that companies that use content marketing enjoy

conversion rates that are six times higher. A very cogent reason why you

should get your blog indexed on Google.

Step 6: Use Internal Links on your blog

Internal link which refers to you linking to other blogs on your website is

another great way to get indexed on Google and it increases your

position in organic search results.

One very obvious way of internal links is your website navigation. Ensure

it is in such a way that it is easily understood by Google.

Step 7: Check for Google Crawl errors frequently

This is a very Important step as it helps in maintaining your indexing

frequency. Checking it at least once a month is highly encouraged.

To check for crawl errors

1. Open search console

2. On left click on settings

3. Then Crawl stats.

4. Then open the report.

Step 8: Ensure pages that shouldn’t be indexed are not.

Pages such as Thank you page and Duplicate blog content shouldn’t be

indexed. Here are highlighted steps to achieve this

● Blocking a page from being indexed using robots.txt

● Using a nofollow or noindex links

Step 9: Updating Old contents.

From everything we have learned so far;


Everytime you update a new blog, Google wants to crawl it more often

and a good way to capitalize on this is to frequently update your


All that indexing, and new information means that updating your old

posts can increase your organic search by 111%.
