After writing many articles about SEO Tips, I’ve had lots of readers asking me how to get indexed by Google faster.
If you have a blog and you’re keeping it updated on a daily basis or on a weekly basis, it is very important to get your blog posts indexed faster by Google.
Every Blogger wants their new posts to be crawled and indexed by Google but it’s not as easy as you think.
There’s no guarantee if Google will even crawl them or not, but if you try to do it in the right way than search engines will surely index your posts. Keep maintaining your blog for the entrance in search results.
How To Get Indexed By Google:
If you want to understand why your new posts are not crawled by Google than take a look at the points below. In this 900 words post, I’m going to share the tips on how to get indexed by Google and other search engines.
1. Optimize posts with relevant keywords
Whenever you published a new post, Google bots will jump on your post. If you have optimized your post with relevant keywords than your post will be crawled soon, If not than it will take a time to get your new post indexed.
It is important to use relevant and long-tail keywords for your posts to get indexed and better ranking.
I have talked a lot about long-tail keywords in my previous post.
2. Submit your blog sitemap
Keep updating your blog sitemap every time you publish a new post. It is the quickest method to let search engines know about your new content.
It is the basic step and should be done because if you submit your blog sitemap on Google webmaster tools and Bing Webmaster Tools, it will get you indexed faster.
I have been searching for a good WordPress XML sitemap from quite some time and have asked about it from many bloggers. Everyone is recommending Google XML sitemaps WordPress plugin and is the best option.

3. Interlink your posts
Instead of focusing on what do you want to rank for, you should focus what you are already ranking for.
Everyone wants to get crawled their pages faster but it depends on many factors. You can still increase your index rate and search engine ranking by interlinking your new posts to your older posts.
Interlinking your posts will help in many ways:
- Interlinking posts will help search engine bots to effectively index the deeper pages of your blog.
- It will help to reduce bounce rate
- Smart interlinking will help new visitors who came from search engines to browse more pages of your blog.
- It also increases the user experience and average time on the blog

4. Comment on other blogs
Blog commenting is the most powerful method to let search engines know about the new post of your blog because when you comment on CommentLuv enabled blogs, they will allow you to show your recent blog post with your comment.
Other than getting indexed faster, Commenting on other blogs has a lot of other benefits too which soon I’m soon gonna discuss briefly.
I do comment on top blogs in my niche daily not only to get indexed faster but to build a relationship with my fellow bloggers and here’s my post on how to increase the number of comments on your blog.
