SUCCESSFUL INDEXING OF YOUR BLOG/WEB PAGE IN SEARCH ENGINES

All bloggers usually do many things to get indexed by search engines. They use many key words, some times use blackhat techniques like keyword stuffing, keyword hiding,content duplication etc. It is very important that each page or each post we write in a blog must be indexed in search engines. Indexing a page is an important step in successful Search Engine Optimization. Today I will discuss about three simple methods to index your page.( don't worry, I will bring more to you soon…). Believe me, these are extremely successful. Never think about an overnight jump in Page Rank, but over a period of time these methods will help you a lot.

Ways to improve performance and downloading time of your blog

INDEX A BLOG

These will help to Search Engine

Make a Crawl friendly Blog or Website by improving download time

You had to look very seriously to the design and downloading time of your website and blog. Usually  newer blog templates are made with  multiple frames, complex designs and Flash which delay the downloading time .

Why a blog or website to be downloaded quickly?

When we look to the crawl rate of most blogs, the spiders or robots from different search engines crawl a maximum of 40% and leave the pages immediately. This results in skipping the essential Keywords,resulting in poor Page Rank. Such sites will never come to the search results of a particular keyword.If the downloading time is less, then the Search engines crawl your sites more efficiently.

Majority of internet users in different countries especially developing countries ,using low bandwidth. So if the downloading time of our page is more than expected, then we will loose a wide audience from these places.

Always remember: “Design for Robots and Write for Humans

One more important factor we had to keep in mind that, If a new visitor can access you blog very quickly then he will spend more time in viewing your site. Such a visitor will never hesitate to come back to your blog.  Remember TIME IS PRECIOUS FOR EVERYONE.

How I know whether my blog have Crawl problems?

I have found a new solution for that. You can analyze the performance of your blog by using two simple Tools, One is A TIMER and other is A FREE CRAWL ANALYSIS FORMULA. You had to use both. ( click here to Download a Free Copy of Crawl Analysis formula. It is essential to download because it will find out whether there is any need of a  change for your webpage)

FIRST STEP:timer

Just click here to check downloading of your blog/webpage with  TIMER . This will lead to a page where you just enter your website/blog/webpage address and click. Yourself can note down the time taken by site to get download fully. Now refresh again and note down the reloading time. Write the FIRST DOWNLOADING TIME ( in seconds) and RELOADING TIME (in seconds) separately in a paper. We will use this in next step.

SECOND STEP:formula

Now open the downloaded FREE CRAWL ANALYSIS FORMULA. As you can see here, it a simple excel based formula which you can download from here. It will tell you, whether you had to restructure your website or blog or not.

All that you had to do is  to enter the FIRST DOWNLOADING TIME ( in seconds) and RELOADING TIME (in seconds)  ( this you have noted in first step) in the space given in this excel sheet. You had to repeat the same in three different days. This will help to analyze in different downloading speeds. when you enter both data in the space provided and press enter, then in the last tab, it will show what you had to do with your webpage. As default, “ No Action Required” will appear in that space. If your webpage need any change, then it will show other wise “ No Action Required” will appear there.

How to Restructure your Webpage:

Consider these simple suggestions to restructure

1.  Avoid complex scripts in the webpage design.

2.  Use less advertisements slots.

3.  Reduce multiple frames in your blog

4. Using Basic Google Blogger templates in your blog is excellent for reducing downloading time. ( But Google Blogger templates not have Search Engine Optimized title tags in order to get higher rankings. So it is always advisable to change the title tags in the Google basic blogger templates. How to change the Title Tags in an ordinary Template to Search Engine Optimized title tags? Read this article and follow simple instructions)

5.  Avoid linking to Websites or Blogs that already block the crawling of Robots. Google Robots consider your webpage as a crawl blocking one , if your page already point towards a Robot blocking website.

6. Always reduce the total number of outgoing links from your page. Google Crawling is more successful in pages with less than 100 outgoing links. The total number of links include  the links from each advertisement slots also.

7. If all these efforts make no result, then consider changing your Template.

All the best.You may be interested to read :

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?
