How to get Google your crawl your site fast


In a recent article, I shared with you the Infobunny process of getting an article indexed fast. The basic principles to get Google to crawl your site are to really tell the page crawlers that you have published something new and interesting. And not just to tell them but to tell them with authority. You want to be shouting out loud to get Google to crawl your site and index you fast. 

Below you will find the Infobunny 8 Point Checklist to get the spiders interested in you to get you crawled as fast as possible. But there is something you must understand. Fast indexing of a site comes automatically with having an established domain.  A new site will always take longer to index than a site with a consistent publishing and content creation record. An established blog has backlinks, it has regular visitors, it has organic traffic. These are all signals for the Google bot to visit and keep visiting without you having to complete any of the 8 steps below. Build you sites reputation, publish consistently and use the Infobunny 8 Step Checklist, That is how you get Google to crawl your site faster.

Google Indexing Explained

Indexing web pages and articles is the process of making your content available to search engines. You create a new article and then your invite google to crawl and index your page. Once you are indexed Google gets to work and adds you to the SERPS. Obviously, the quicker Google crawls your page the better.

1/ Before you even begin your article

Do your keyword research. How will visitors find you, what is your audience searching for? Select your keywords and keyword phrases carefully. Add then throughout your article with variations.

2/ On-page SEO

Have you implemented H1, H2, H3 tags? Are your images named? Do your images have alt image text? Are you using your chosen keyword or phrase in the article title and subtitles where possible? Have added a killer meta description?

3/ Share, share and share some more

Social sharing is really the beginning of the process to get Google to crawl your site. Because by the nature of their popular social media pages tend to be very good signals for the Spiders to crawl your page as they point to you. Likes comments and shares reinforce to Google that there is something worth indexing at the end of the link.

4/ Share your shares

You have already shared your post to Facebook, Twitter Etc. Share your shares to your lesser socials to give them more influence.

5/ Ping your new page

Pinging more than likely be covered on publishing if you are using WordPress because it is part of the setup. If your platform doesn’t automatically ping when you publish then just visit a good Ping service. We recommend Ping Farm or IndexKings.

What’s a Ping?

Ping is a basic Internet program that allows a user to verify that a particular IP address exists and can accept requests. Ping is used diagnostically to ensure that a host computer the user is trying to reach is actually operating.

6/ ViralContentBee

This tip fits into Number 8 on the checklist and involves Steemit

Steemit really is a runaway train when it comes to getting Google to come and visit your site. 

Here is an example of how Steemit can be used to get the Google Bots attention

I have an article on Infobunny called The Facebook Habit. Last I checked it was ranking page 1 in the SERPS position 2. I wanted to test and see if I could get this article to move up to position one. So I headed over to Steemit and created another blog on the same Topic. This time called Facebook Addiction – 8 reasons why you have a social media addiction – Infobunny

Check the screen capture below

The newly created article has not only indexed on Google but is appearing in the SERPS at 43. The indexing process and SERPS result were gained in just 1 hour. The idea of this article is just to create support for my main article. We want it to rank well so we implemented our Steemit Blog SEO strategy. We just used different keywords so it wasn’t competition but was still related and linked to the main event.

If a site is indexing on Google in an hour or less then Google loves that site. It has authority and clearly has the Google spiders constantly crawling its pages. And these spiders are diverted and sent back to my main article here on Infobunny.

    Great tips, but THE MOST IMPORTANT:
    Be on Google+, have several pages there (up to 50!!! are allowed) and join as many Google+ communities as well.
    Immediately, after your blog post is life, post it to all these Google+ sites and pages and communities.

    I have a problem with one of my sites it has been got a penalty so I send recognition to google and they remove the penalty from my site but my sitemap is not getting submitted, what should I do?

    • Dexter Roona

      Are you using SEO Yoast to generate a site map. You then add and test your sitemap in the Google Search Console

    All of the things you shared here certainly work Dexter.
    But what I think is submitting a sitemap to Google is the most effective way.
    Although it takes some time for Googlebot to crawl our website you can push the bot by fetching and rending tool in GSC.
    I personally use this method to get my pages indexed in just 2 mins.
    I have shared my experience with my readers on my blog here at http://victorvijay.com/submit-url-to-google-index/
    This can be helpful for your readers too.
    Either way thanks for sharing, Dexter.

    • Dexter Roona

      Yes you are correct we are doing that as well. We mention this process in the big blue graphic at the bottom of the article. I will add this process into the article when I get a moment.

    In the last time when I use fetch like google, the new article it’s not indexed immediately, need some hours or even 1 day. Before, with this option, the indexing was very fast! Do someone know why this happening?

    • Dexter Roona

      Its just a request to index, normally it happens quite fast, pretty much straight away for Infobunny but I think it probably helps to have a good well-structured blog that Google likes. I have a newer niche site that I have created and it took over 24 hours for the last post that I created there to get indexed.

      Thanks for the question, if you find any reasons so the slow indexing let me know.
