If you have never built a website, you may be asking yourself, “What is Google Indexing?” Every website builder wants their website showing up on the search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. Google Search is used the most, so you want them to know about your pages. Once they discover your site, they have a formula to determine if the pages will be indexed and where they will rank compared to other sites like yours. If they have your pages indexed in their database, it is a good thing. When you rank high for quality popular keyword searches, you get free traffic.
This page is just a basic introduction to getting indexed and being found on the search engines.
Google Index Education
If you have ever bought a domain (your own dot com) and didn’t make your contact information private, they you have probably received a bunch of emails about page 1 of Google. Ignore all the emails from others about getting your site found on the search engines and focus on providing good content. You can start your google index education later.
Making sure that your website is ready to be found before Google crawls your website is the key to getting found on their site. If you are building your website with the free website builder tool mentioned on this website, then the settings should be set-up correctly. If you haven’t built a website yet, start one for free with the banner link at the bottom of this page.
Do you know about the <site:domain> command?
Go to google.com and type in the search bar “site:anydomainurl” and click search to see what pages google has decided to add to their index for the domain you are searching. There is a site command search tools training module you can watch on this page. This also works on yahoo and bing search engines. For new sites, you may only see a portion of the pages. For developed sites, you could see thousands of pages in the index.
You might be tempted to do this a lot for your new domain. It takes time and will happen if you keep focusing on adding great articles to your website. Don’t worry about the daily rankings. There will be a time when you get pages ranked very fast.
