    Hi guys, I have a business directory that I've been building for the last few months & I have a few questions for anyone who knows about sub domains, how to get them ranking well & indexed fast.

    My first question is, can you get sub domains indexed really fast? It takes me between 2-7 days at the moment. I sell these sub domains to businesses for a small monthly fee. So I need to get these sub domains indexed asap. At the moment I place the URL of the sub domain on my home page to help get the site indexed asap, is there another way I can do this? I would prefer not to have the sites on my home page as it does let my competitors see my new clients & give them the chance to contact them.

    Also is there any tricks to getting your sub domains to rank well? I'm aiming to target low keywords but building multiple sites targeting each keyword the customer would like to rank for, a keyword example would be "plumber Ringwood". Which is not a very competitive search. I've been using scrapebox to blast the sub domains but I haven't seen any results, it's only been a few days though.

    Another thing I've noticed is that when I create multiple sites with the exact same content except the town name. For example "plumber Ringwood" "plumber Blackburn", some of these sites rank well but other times you can't find them, it's like they're banned. Then they will re-appear a week or 2 later, I'm thinking it could be a duplicate content issue. But I can see my competitors are able to create multiple sites, changing just the town name & get a good ranking on Google within 1-2 days after they've built the site & placed the URL on the home page.

    So what I'm trying to achieve is a network of websites using my business directory. I need to be able to get these sites indexed asap & get these sub domains ranked above my competitors. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks!

    Pinging the sub-domains works for me... If it doesn't for you then just post an article or two in a site and ping the article with a backlink to the site. Seems unnecessary though as just pinging seems to do the trick.
