How to speed up site indexing - 18 effective free ways

Как ускорить индексацию сайта - 18 эффективных бесплатных способов

How to speed up the indexing of the site - this question can often be found on the webmasters forums. Very much depends on indexation: the position of the site in search engines, the number of visitors from them, the popularity of the resource, and, ultimately, the profit from the site. I have compiled the methods that I have tried to promote websites and which are really effective in improving and speeding up the indexing of a site by search engines.

By focus, all methods can be divided into two categories - internal site optimization and work with external factors. On financial expenses - free and paid ways.

How to speed up site indexing - free ways

1. Create a sitemap for Google (sitemap) in xml format. To create html and xml maps for your site, use the online generator , which processes up to 500 pages for free. After generation, save the sitemap to the root of your site in xml format. In order to feed the xml-map to the Google search engine, you need to register an account in the Google Webmaster Service , and then in the Sitemap menu add a link to your xml-map like your_site / sitemap.xml. After registering with this service, you can configure the Russian language interface. According to my observations, after adding sitemap to Google, the robot of this search engine starts to visit your site more often and better index it. In addition, Google for Webmasters offers many useful options.

2. Create an html sitemap in 1 click from the main page, which contains links to all pages of your site. If there are a lot of pages, break the sitemap into several pages. Place a link to the site map on all pages.

3. Register with the Yandex.Webmaster service and add your website, which will allow you to track the indexing of pages on the website by Yandex, as well as use other useful functions.

4. Registration in directories - if you have not registered the site in directories, I advise you to do it. You can search for directories by typing the query "site directory" in any search engine. This is a very long and laborious process. You can buy the program Allsubmitter with directories database, which greatly facilitates the registration in directories. You can order a run through the catalogs. You can use special registration services in directories:

5. Organize RSS feeds from your site and register your RSS feed in RSS directories. This allows you to publish announcements of your materials on other sites.

6. Write an article (or rather several) and publish it in the article directories. To find article directories, simply type "article directory" or "add article" in any search engine. In the article, place 2-4 links to the main page of your website or to internal pages.

7. Competent internal linking is very important to speed up site indexing. All pages should have 2-3 links to the main page. Duplicate the menu. For example, if you have a horizontal menu at the top of the site, then duplicate it at the bottom. Make additional links to the main sections of the menu on all pages of the site.

Post a list of the most popular site materials (for example, in Wordpress this is solved by the Most Popular plugin), as well as a list of recent entries. At the end of each article, make a few links to similar materials. In addition to improving indexing, it will increase the number of pages viewed on your site (if you have Wordpress, then use the Related Articles plugin). Try in the text of each page to refer 1-2 times to other articles on your site.

8. The rule of three clicks. Navigate the site so that any page of your site is accessible no further than 3 clicks from the main page.

9. Try not to make drop-down menus on scripts and flash, this makes it difficult for search engines to index the site.

10. Add a site to the form for adding search engines: Add a site to Yandex Add a site to Google Add a site to Rambler Add a site to Aport Add a site to MSN Add a site to Gogo doesn’t make sense to add, since the Yandex search base is used.

11. Add a site to ratings: Add a site to Rambler Top 100 Add a site to Rating

12. Add a site to directories: Add a site to Dmoz - choose the appropriate category, and look for the link "Suggest URL" in the upper right corner. Add a site to the Catalog - choose the appropriate category, and below look for the link "Add site".

13. Add a site to social bookmarks. A big plus of social bookmarks is that you can add internal pages of the site to them. Each service must register.

To make it easier to add site pages to social bookmarks, use the services of , and also set the buttons for adding to bookmarks at the end of each article of your site from the One-Button or One-Way services. This will allow your visitors to add their articles to their social bookmarks themselves. Such English-speaking services are and . I recommend adding each worthy article from your site to social bookmarking services.

14. Write an interesting article on your site, and post it in social news services. Each service must register.

15. Try to avoid the .info and .org zones when registering a domain, as it happens that Yandex does not index them well.

How to speed up site indexing - paid options

16. Buy links to the home or internal pages of your site (depending on what you need to index) on the Sape , Xap or CLX link exchanges (now irrelevant). This is a very effective way. To get the maximum effect, I recommend buying links from sites hosted in Yandex.Catalog (for Yandex) and in Dmoz'e (for Google). The fastest links are indexed from the main pages of sites. The higher the performance of CY and Google PageRank on purchased sites, the better. In order to avoid misunderstanding, I recommend manually browsing the sites where you bought links.

17. Write an article with links to your site and publish it on the stock exchanges articles Seozavr , Xmest , Liex . The advantage of this option is that you can quickly find a lot of sites and post an article on them.

18. Write and pay post articles on sites of similar subjects. Find sites that are ready to place your articles, you can on specialized forums. The advantage of this option is that you pay for posting an article once.
