Search Engines are the best inventions in this virtual world of internet. Each and everyday more than billions of people are using them to find whatever they want. Search Engines are the bridge between site owners(bloggers) and Readers (Viewers). If there were no search engines then users must used to type your site URL and then only they can land to your page. But search Engines made all these tasks easy by Indexing all content from Internet and then helping searchers to find accurate information or service.
How Search Engines work ?
Whenever a term or word searched in Search Engine,search engine scans its whole index to find some content which is relative to the given terms and keywords. If it found something relative to the searched term in its index then all matched results will be sorted and shown according to the keyword density and Page Rank.
What is meant by Indexing of a blog ? Why It is So Important ?
Blog Indexing is nothing but ‘Making search engines to keep your blog pages in their Index’. As I already said while showing search results, search engines looks its own index only. If your blog page is not indexed means your blog post will not appear in the search results and you will not get a good exposure. So its very important to get your blog Indexed.
How to ensure that whether my blog is indexed or not ?
You know whether your blog is indexed or not go to search Engine first and then search like this site:yourwebsite.com
Replace Domain with your website name like site:bloggingpeople.com or site:abc.BlogSpot.com.If you found at least 1 result also,then it means that your site is indexed by that search engine.
If you find no results or only few results then here are tips to get index all your blog pages quickly and Easily with free of cost.
Create some valuable content before asking for Index of a blog
Don’t force search engines to crawl your empty blog.Do post some posts with some valuable content before asking for Index. Because search engines index blogs to fetch information and data,they don’t came to your blog just for promotion purpose..!
Submit sitemaps to search Engines using webmaster tools
Submitting the sitemaps helps search engine crawlers to index your site quickly and easily. Another advantage of this one is if your blog have any problems (such as robot.txt) while indexing, you will get notified through the webmaster tool. If you do not submit sitemap and do not use webmaster tools, you will never come to know about the crawling errors.
Use ping bots to send update Information
Ping bots are used to send the update information about your blog to all the search Engines. It informs the search engine bots that your blog is updated or changed. Then search engine bots will come to your blog to index the new page.
Add meta tags and meta keyword’s to your blog
Meta tags and Meta keywords are the basic’s of a blog SEO. These helps search engines to know about your blog. Meta tag is nothing but description of your blog in few sentences and the meta keywords are the words or terms which describes your blog niche. These meta keywords plays the very important role in your blog page rank also. According to your keyword density your blog will feature in search results.
Using the proper meta tag and meta keyword is good practice to make search engines to index your site quickly and correctly.
