    I've noticed a lot of my blog comments are taking an age to be picked up by Google. Will there be any kind of penalty from Google if I submit each of the URLs for the comments each time I need them to be crawled?

    Yeah, that's pretty good footprint. Be patient or do not do SEO at all. Without patience you can't get anywhere in this field nowadays.

    I figured as much. Should google crawl pretty much every crawlable page eventually then (if that makes sense)?

    Yes. And if it won't index it, it means it's shit.

    When you use Google's submit to index tool, ask yourself: Is there a reason why you, the webmaster of the domain on your account, would know about that page and submit it to index manually?

    There is basically only one reason why a "white hat" webmaster would submit a page to index, which is that it's a post that is actually on the domain associated with that account.

    There are some exceptions. Some plausible reasons why you might manually submit a page on a different domain to index include:
    • If you are openly affiliated with another website (for example, the company that owns The Onion also openly owns Clickhole
    • It's an official public listing about your business, such as an official company LinkedIn or Facebook page
    • Someone else took their page down because you filed a takedown notice, such as a DMCA notice, and you want to remove the (now 404) page from Google's index
    Sticky this. These days, the links that actually seem to be worth buying seem to index in under 15 minutes. Maybe a day maximum.

    I think I've had this exact exchange of comments with you before, now that I think about it.

    There is no problem with doing this. That's why google makes it available.


    A footprint of what, lol? Having a website? There's nothing wrong with footprints unless it's a footprint of you doing something you're not supposed to be doing. Heck, just being indexed at all is a footprint. Using Google's own indexing tool to get indexed isn't a violation of any Google policy that Google is going to penalize you for.

    They only crawl pages that they know about. If they aren't being alerted to the existence of your pages in some way they will never find them.

    If you aren't doing anything you shouldn't be doing you could set up a google webmaster account, submit the site and use fetch to index your pages.

    Footprint of you creating backlinks on purpose in order to rank higher in serps and thus for your personal gain = Breaking ToS of Google.

    Using the same GWT account to force index/crawl dozens of pages with your link on them (And I really doubt OP was planning to use separate Gmail with separate proxy for each of those) = Footprint.

    And Google really doesn't create tools for the purpose of helping you to rank better and get more money in their stead. :)
