    Hey guys,

    I've been lurking around in the forums and I decided to the take the adsense micro-niche strategy to get some cash.
    As we all know the strategy needs a good steady flow of traffic
    and a good page rank so getting index by Google is the most important part to the strategy...

    Well I've been waiting for Google to index me for about a week now.
    Before I even launched the websites I had everything done
    and uploaded to FTP as soon as possible so I'm kind of obsessed over time efficiency.

    So I proudly finished the websites and launched two pages,
    while doing so I blasted them with about 2,000 backlinks...

    Now it's time for the waiting game and I'm getting very impatient.

    Its only been a week I know but still I've heard of people getting indexed in one hour or so.

    So I would like a white hat method of getting indexed quickly.
    If there's no way then I would like to know of the black hat way but I most likely wouldn't use it.

    Anyway thanks lots for helping out a newbie!
    I hope to make many contributions to the forums once I get to learning
    while getting my hands dirty. :p

    Are you indexed for anything right now?

    Check info:yourdomainname and see if you're showing up in the index.

    Additionally, I think you may have shot yourself in the foot by building 2000 backlinks before you're even indexed.

    That likely triggers some Big G alarms right out the gate. In the beginning you should start building your backlinks by hand to create the appearance of organic backlinking. You see folks on here talk about blasting websites with backlinks and they are all blasting established websites.

    Great.......

    No I'm not index now. I know about the "site:" code to look for indexing...
    Yeah I feel like an idiot now.

    But how long does it usually take to get indexed by Google to begin with?
    And again I guess the first question stands on how do I get indexed quickly.

    I'm still new at all of this, but I created two sites - one with Wordpress and one with Weebly. I knew the Weebly site was going to be more difficult to get indexed and it was. I built a few hundred backlinks by hand and my sites got indexed after 7 days, with only 5 back links showing up on each site. It was very discouraging. Then after about 16 days I had around 30 backlinks showing up.

    Also I used this Page Rank checker after I got indexed and it shows you where you are, even if you are number 200 or 300.

    It's at seoserp. On the left you will see top 1000 serps checker. That is the shiznit! It's been the best checker so far, it found my site in the 500th position.

    I hope that helps out. I hear of people having sites and backlinks showing up after a few hours, I have not had that experience yet. I must be doing something wrong, I have 100's of backlinks and less then 30 are showing up on both sites.

    The amount of time it takes to get indexed varies greatly. You'll hear reports from a few hours to several weeks.

    It generally takes longer for a new domain to get indexed. I usually wait around 3-5 days to see new domains indexed.

    Most people who want to get indexed immediately start to submit their website to a few social bookmarking websites, ping their website numerous times and finally do some very light backlink building (remember we need to be very organic at first).

    Double check that your robots.txt is not blocking anything and make sure you don't have any nofollow or noindex meta tags on your pages.

    Check Y! and Bing and see if you're getting any traction over there.

    I use G's Webmaster Tools because it has a nice feature called "Crawler Access" which shows you the last time G's spider hit your website.

    If you don't want to do that then you can check your Apache logs and track down G's spider IP addresses.

    With all that said, you may be in the sandbox. :-( I would suggest starting over with a new domain (on a new IP block) because you could quickly migrate everything over and "look fresh" in G's eyes.

    So, how about round 2?

    Hmm yes it would be horrible if I was stuck in a sandbox...
    But I doubt that since I do see some activity on the Crawler stats on the site
    and after checking the Crawler Access tab I do see that a spider crawled through
    the site yesterday.

    Perhaps I'm being too impatient...

    I mean I remember I did get another site indexed after a month but that was just
    from letting it lay around with the sitemap submitted...

    This is after all just the first week. Hopefully Google hasn't sandboxed this site.
