Great! You finished writing your blog post…now what?…Want your post to show up on google results?
If you do, you will need to manually add your post URL to google’s URL submitter tool.
This is a very easy “to do” type of thing 🙂
What’s great about this, is that it will help your post get noticed by google without you waiting for the google bots to crawl to your blog post.
In this short post, I am going to share with you the steps that are needed to index your blog post.
In this example, I am taking my “Top 10 FREE feminine WordPress themes” blog post. It is currently not indexed on google yet.
Feel free to open a new tab window so that you can follow along! 🙂
If you want to check if your blog post is indexed or not, Simple copy and past the title of your blog post and see if your blog is showing up in the results.
If it doesn’t then your blog post isn’t indexed yet.
Now you will need to go to the google URL submitter (which can be found here) to submit your blog post URL
Past you blog post URL into the “URL:” box, Check the “I am not a robot” box and then click on the “Submit Request” Button bellow.
That’s it! You successfully submitted your blog post onto google’s index. You will see a confirmation message like this:
Now you just have to wait… After an hour or two try to type into google’s search bar your blog title that you submitted in google’s tool.
It is supposed to show up after a while 🙂
For me personally – It took a few hours. (I submitted it at 4 pm and I saw my site indexed by 9 pm)
