INDEX YOUR BLOG PAGES IN GOOGLE WITHIN TEN MINUTES

Grab a better page rank from Google:

It is very easy to get indexed in Google, I should say with in ten minutes. What effort you need is just do two things.

One is the Installation of Installation of Google Verification Meta tag in your blog and other is Submission of Sitemap to Robots.

Search engines use a spider to reach out into the Internet to find new and updated websites. When a page is published, the spider stumbles upon the page depending on what is published on the page.

So indexing your blog and submitting a sitemap favors the robots to crawl and in the end all your WebPages will get indexed quite easily and thus search engine optimization can be achieved.

Lets see how these can be done quickly. So start counting….

Picture1

Installation of Google Verification Meta tag in your blog

 

Step A

Click here to go to GOOGLE WEBMASTERS TOOL login Page, Login using your Google Account and Password.

Step B

dashboard

After login, you will reach your DASHBOARD in Google Webmaster Tools. Never confuse this Dashboard with your Blogger Dashboard. Here you had to enter the Name of your blog starting with http……, (in the Yellow highlighted area in this picture) and click on Add site.

 

 Step Coverview

Now you will reach a page that look like this. Here you can see your DASHBOARD- Overview. You blog or webpage name is also there and below that you can see, in Pale yellow tab, “ Next Step”.  Click on “ Verify your site” which is in blue color.

 

 

 dash Step D

When you click there, then you will reach a page same like this. You can see the Verification Status is UNVERIFIED. Now go to the “Choose Verification” tab in the same page and select “ Add a Meta Tag”. Then immediately below that you will get a Meta Tag for your blog. Copy it in Note Pad.

 

 

Step E

Don't close the page or don't click on any thing.

Now listen carefully.

Open another Browser window ( Internet explorer, or Firefox) Go to www.blogspot.com and open your blogger account .

You will reach “DASHBOARD”, now go to “LAYOUT” and take “EDIT HTML”.

As a precaution, just download a copy of your template to your computer. This will help to reinstall your blog if you do any mistake in editing HTML.

Copy the meta tag from Notepad and paste it in your site's HTML in the first <head> section of the page, before the first <body> section.

When you look into the EDIT HTML section of your blog, you can see <head> portion within the first few lines and its better to paste the Metatag just below  that.

Now save template and View Blog in a new Window.

finalStep F

Now Go back to your Google Webmaster page and Click on Verify. If you had done everything correctly, then the page will look like this.

Now your blog or website is ready for indexing.

Don't close this Google Webmaster Dash Board Page.

Don't logout. Because we will now Submit a sitemap of your blog or website in the next step.

 

Submission of Sitemap to Robots

 

What is a Sitemap?

Sitemap, as the name indicates, is a map for the Spiders or Robots to Crawl through the page and help the search engines like Google to index your page based on that.

There are two types of sitemaps. The first type of sitemap is a HTML page listing the pages of your site and other is XML Sitemaps - usually called Sitemaps.

Creating and submitting a Sitemap helps make sure that Google knows about all the pages on your site, including URLs that may not be discoverable by Google's normal crawling process.

Sitemaps are very  helpful if your site has dynamic content,and has pages that aren't easily discovered by Robot during the crawl process

Sitemaps are very useful if your site is new and has few links to it. In general, Sitemaps will help Google to know more about your blog i.e.,how often the pages on your site change,the date each page was last modified etc.

Google adheres to Sitemap Protocol 0.9 as defined by sitemaps.org

 

How to make a Sitemap?

Now a days there are several free and paid software available in internet to automatically generate sitemaps. These software are applicable in huge websites with multiple pages and user interfaces.

I suggest you to use your FEED URL as your site map. Do you know how to make your Feed URL?

The below given is my Feed URL, you can make similar Feed URL by replacing the name of my blog.( replace the purple in color and bold)

http://businessvartha.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

(http://yourblogname/feeds/posts/default)

Note your Feed URL in a separate paper and Go To Google Webmaster Dash Board Page, and look in the “Overview”( the step F in our previous method) and select Sitemap

sitemap

The page will look like this. I have pointed a portion with red ink arrow where you had to enter the Feed URL of your blog.

Never enter full, instead you had to enter the balance portion of your site’s Feed URL. If you have done correctly, then the status in that page will show “pending”. It will take only  five minutes, depending upon Google network  to get approval for the site map.

Relogin after two hours and you can see that your blog is verified and the number of pages approved through Sitemap.

Very interesting, Isn't it?

If you have streaming images/ads in flash format or a redirect you might have to add code to your feed url. The standard format would not work for me, so appending code (a query parameter) to my feed URL had showed site map submission was a success.

This is explained at blogger know how: http://blogknowhow.blogspot.com/2009/02/submit-blogspot-blog-sitemap-to-google.html

Komarraju Venkata Vinay said...

Thank you for your reply. As you have seen I use a wordpress blog and in this post on getting indexed in Google, meta tag cannot be added to the wordpress blog for indexing as it is done in blogger. That is what I asked help for.

Awesome post! :)
Thanks for the info!

Hi,
I followed your steps..
I logged in after 2 hours,i did not get any sippets from my blog on the webmasters tool's dashboard.. but the status of my blog was showing approved.
now i log in again,it shows a red 'X' mark in the status..
pls help me

Kris said...

dear Nakshatra, Sometime it will take one day due to huge traffic in google analytics. So please wait for another 12 - 24 hours and later you see the submitted sitemap. if you still see red X mark, then You may submit another sitemap like this: http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?orderby=updated
OR simply putting this "rss.xml" in the place of site map.there is nothing wrong in submitting these two in additional and once approved you may delete the other with error messages.

N@k$h@tr@! said...

Hi,
I again followed your steps and resubmitted. But i still got this error..
General HTTP error: 404 not found
We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit.

Kris said...

Dear Nakshatra, I think you added the whole link " http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?orderby=updated"
Please notice that in the place where you had to type, should contain the portion after " http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/". This is because, your blog name is already present on the left side of that type in bar. After typing the said balance portion ,just submit. I mean, feeds/posts/default?orderby=updated OR rss.xml
BEFORE DOING THIS, PLEASE INCLUDE AN ARCHIVE WIDGET IN YOUR BLOG AND A LABEL WIDGET ALSO IN YOUR BLOG, IN THE FIRST PAGE.If you still feel trouble, please feel free to ask us. Thanking you for the patience

N@k$h@tr@! said...

Hi,
I had added everything correctly only.
Also,my labels are archives widgets are on my blog since a long time

Nisar said...

Nice info. I was having doubts about the sitemap. Gonna use your method and test it out on my blog. Thanks.

Kris said...

Dear Nakshatra, Hopes that your problem is settled now. If you feel that you have done everything perfect, then please wait for another Crawl by Robots.

please help

Reetha ( Businessvartha) said...

Dear Rocky,You have nice blog. We have inspected your site map :Please take care that posting any blog post before current date or deleting any previously posted article may show error in SiteMap. In such cases, just delete the previously added site map and place new site map and submit. Please note that, you should give some time for the search engines to Crawl. We suggest you to try any one of this as your Site map.

Reetha ( Businessvartha) said...

Dear Rocky, Please reduce the amount of outgoing links and reduce multiple frames and FLASH based widgets. Then please apply again. You may need to apply two or three times as the Spiders take time to crawl two or three times to notice the changes you made. Thank you
Reetha
