How to Verify If Google Has Indexed Your Website

If you own a site or a weblog, or both, you’d probably want Google to know you exist. I mean, Google knew YouTube existed and copped it for a whopping $ 1.6 billion dollars. I’m sure you could do with, half of that kinda cash lying about someplace. So to get there, you need to have to get your site or weblog indexed in Google as a beginning point.

Note: I know many of you still have problems acquiring indexed in Google for your web site or blog. I will cover that topic in future.

How To Verify If Google Has Indexed My Web site

Fire up your browser and go to Google. Now, variety in the url of your site or blog into Google’s search box either like http://yoursite.com/ or http://www.yoursite.com or yoursite.com. Each variation of the url may possibly bring up distinct benefits so attempt all of those. If you get a result, you’re IN! You’re now in Google’s database exactly where someone who occurs to search for your name or the name of your site, will find it in Google. For this example, I will be using Common Motors’ blog (bet ya did not know General Motors’ had a weblog, did ya?). Why General Motors as an instance? I just like the color of its web site.&#13
Alternatively, you could sort in web site:http://www.yoursite.com or internet site:yoursite.com to see if it’s indexed. This unique syntax tells you how many of your pages Google has already indexed and are displaying up in its database. Do not fret if yours isn’t indexed yet. If your site is fairly new, it’s really probable that could be the reason why.&#13
Now, if your internet site is indexed, what you’d almost certainly like to do next is find out, how much Google truly knows about it. So, sort in info:http://www.yoursite.com or, info: followed by any of the other URL variations I mentioned above. That should bring up a page which looks a thing like this:&#13

Google shows a few clickable hyperlinks which you can click to get more information about your web site. You will see a link to Google’s cache of your URL. A cache is a copy of the page that Google indexed. You can click on ‘link to’ to see who’s linking to your site and so on (a tool that I would suggest you use to uncover out who’s linking to your internet site is MarketLeap’s Link Popularity Verify at [http://www.marketleap.com/publinkpop/]. It really is totally free to use and very helpful indeed).

Let’s just try clicking on Google’s cache and see what pops up. What you are going to see is a bit of info that Google tells you about when it last indexed your internet site and at what time.

Tip: These ‘in the know’ about search engine optimization takes benefit of Google’s cache feature to have it spider their sites regularly. Here’s how you can do the same:

If you have a entire lot of pages on your internet site, Google’s bots will never ever normally index all of it in one go. It will spider your internet site a bit at a time and return to index some a lot more.

What you do is verify Google’s cache a couple of occasions more than a couple of days to see how typically Google’s bots ‘pays homage’ to your website. As soon as you get an idea of its frequency, update your content before Google’s bots returns. Do this on a regular basis sufficient, and Google’s bots will comprehend that your site is 1 that is regularly updated. What takes place then is the bots will keep a typical schedule of visiting your site.

Taking benefit of this truth, spot a link in your web site or weblog (now being aware of fully properly when Google is coming more than for a visit), that points to your own item page, which could be a direct response web website or an order page (these sites hardly rank properly in Google simply because of its lack of content). This sends a surge of site visitors from your blog (which is now on a regular basis visited by Google) to your product’s web site (hardly visited by Google). That’s traffic you in no way had to spend for.

There’s a lot to search engine optimization than meets the eye, but it is vital to any person performing enterprise on-line to recognize it. I’ll be covering far more on this topic along the way and pointing you to resources that will maintain you properly up-to-date on how to hold you internet sites extremely ranked and bringing in steady site visitors.
