    I recently started a new web 2.0 campaign. The goal was to set up 100+ quality 2.0 sites.

    By quality I mean sites where:


    • All dummy content is deleted
    • Internal welcome messages are opened
    • All relevant profile info is filled in
    • An avatar is uploaded
    • And for sites that support it an about-me-page is added

    I always do this when I create campaigns as it greatly improves the stick rate of the accounts.

    But here comes the interesting part when it comes to indexing.

    I set up the accounts in two steps.

    First I focused only on signing up and verifying the email address if needed.

    Then after three weeks I checked to see how many of the web 2.0's that where indexed. It was 6 sites out of 119, so just 5%. No indexing services where used.

    Next I logged in and nursed the profiles with all the additional details mentioned above.

    Now all the web 2.0's had a profile page or an about-me-page, an avatar uploaded and dummy content removed etc.

    The text I used for the about-me-page or profile page was 4 sentences spun 10 times on sentence level. Not just word replacing but actual rephrasing. Then each sentence variation was spun on word level. It read well and do not look spammy. A profile images was also added next to the text.

    There is a lot of debate on the effect good content have on indexing. So I decide to wait three weeks to see if just updating these profiles and adding a single quality about-me-page would have an effect. Still no indexing services where used, so this is pure natural indexing.

    After three more weeks 28 of 119 sites where indexed. That is 23.5% of all the sites indexed by pure natural indexing with no articles added at all. That surprised me.

    Now I am in the process of adding articles and will add 5 articles to each web 2.0. I expect that even more sites will get indexed naturally as the articles are added, but it is still to early to say.

    Anyway I thought that this find was interesting as i believe most experience natural indexing in the range 5% - 8% for web 2.0's.

    Nursing these sites and adding a quality about-me-page makes G00gle less likely to ignore them and increase indexing dramatically.

    Having 23.5% of the sites indexed before you even add content or turn to indexing services are well worth the trouble IMO.

    I get the sarcasm :). Feel free to use any tool you like or do it manually.
