Discussion in 'White Hat SEO' started by fullwall3t, May 14, 2015.
If your articles are unique and of good quality, you don't need to worry, just allow google some time to index your pages properly. Some link building together with social signals might as well help.
I'm assuming your site is new. Just give it some time and submit a sitemap.
Also, check to ensure the following:
Are all of your pages that you've submitted returning a 200 ok response (in other words, do the URLs work)?
Are the other pages blocking web crawlers?
Is the page easy to access?
Yes my site is few days old. Yes i have submited the sitemap, should i submit it again in future or will "google take care of it" ?
And to those 3 questions: YES, NO, How can i find that out?
Thanks a lot for feedback
you have most of the features in google webmaster tool, if you are using wordpress by any chance you can install some plugin and automate sitemap submit. Also your site is new so it takes some time month,two or more if you are doing white hat SEO.
With a site that new the indexed pages might vary by day for awhile. Keep building good, unique content and submitting routine site map updates to Google if you make major site changes. Also, setup you RSS with Feedburner. Need to get some good links pointing at your site so Google knows you exist.
Submitting the sitemap once is enough.
By "is the page easy to access", I meant are you internally building links to your other pages (linking your relevant articles together)? Although, since you don't have many pages, this shouldn't be an issue (although it's a good idea to get started on inter-linking early) unless there are absolutely 0 links to the pages that aren't indexed, but this is something the sitemap should take care of.
Again, just give it a bit of time.
Ranking and indexing are different things. Google rarely indexes everything from a site. Once the algorithm crawls your site and identifies it for what it is, you should expect about 3-5 days for indexing. It doesn't mean it will rank. It's possible that the pages will get an artificial boost to gather data, and once the algorithms gather data, you then rank naturally. If the site is generally junk, then it's not worth the resources to rank any pages for any more data.
Usually Google is indexing new created links during 2-3 weeks. In case you have less links that before, they might be dead.
When you sit down at your computer and do a Google search, you're almost instantly presented with a list of results from all over the web. How does Google find web pages matching your query, and determine the order of search results?
In the simplest terms, you could think of searching the web as looking in a very large book with an impressive index telling you exactly where everything is located. When you perform a Google search, our programs check our index to determine the most relevant search results to be returned ("served") to you.
