    Hi,

    I used to use SEO indexing services in the past and now that I'm back doing IM again I find that my ranks go up even though I'm not using indexing services.

    Is indexing a waste of time? It appears Google gets around to finding everything in a week or so anyhow.

    I'm considering GSA SEO Indexer since its a one time pay but any tips or adivce would be helpful.

    Thanks BHW

    Yeah I see results almost immediately without indexing on some of my sites. Let it be. :)

    IMO indexing services have always been a waste. Building a tier 2 will get your links indexed. Anything that doesn't require a tier 2 is strong enough to get indexed on its own.

    Indexing is a waste imho. If it won't rank without it will get de-indexed later.

    I posted the (Mod Edit: URL contained affiliate links) here on this. It shows that GSA SEO indexer is a total waste of time and that building a tier for indexing has massively dropped in efficiency recently. One of the indexing services used in the case study was able to get over 90% of links indexed.

    First, let me say I appreciate you conducting a case study on this topic and sharing it with us. But, based on my own personal experience, I have to partially disagree with you on the idea of tier 2 not indexing. Your case study states that Express Indexer is the most effective method of indexing with an indexing tier being second. That's the reason I'm in PARTIAL disagreement. I can not speak to EI's performance because I've never used it. But what I CAN tell you is that a fleshed out indexing tier WILL work. It just may not be as simple as you expect. My tier 2 usually consists of GSA blasts, Social Bookmarking, PUBLIC Blog Networks, and social signals. Through this method I've never failed to index a tier 1 link (except for Evernote, which I found won't index under any circumstances).

    Nice, are the public blog networks from a service on here? The indexing tier in the case study was more towards stuff mentioned on the GSA Forum and was only meant to have SER links in it, basically a few month back it was getting really good indexing rates.

    I have a new one planned with similar to what you are saying, I have a source of social signals, social books marks and SER but not public bookmarks, rather than using them all togeather I want to try and use individual batches on them to see if any single element has the best indexing rate or if it is all working togeather.

    Yes, I use Lover's PBN service here on BHW. I'm not yet convinced its safe for a money site, but I've been getting good results using it as a tier 2.

    I remember that name from some stuff I tried in the past, I will give it a try, cheers mate :).

    I know I am being lazy but I don't suppose you have the link bookmarked or something?

    Not a waste of time, if the link is not indexed its useless.

    Yes, it is a waste of time.
    Quality links usually get indexed within some days.
    Moreover, better to try Tier- 2 link building rather indexers.

    Today you can easily get indexed, if you aren't, then something is wrong with you code/content. Either way link indexing services is not required to get indexed, even on a brand new domain.

    Exactly this.

    If you are using tiers it makes more sense to use an indexing service on your lower quality links as they point to the quality links and will send spiders their way.

    IMO it is worth to put your effort.
    There are many sites and article takes more than 2 weeks to get indexed. If you are looking to get ranking fast You have to get indexed soon.

    Exactly :). I haven't managed to find any super quick indexing services since they were patched out in the middle of 2015 but indexing is still important.
