If you read my blog, you will see that I have quite a few articles about SEO, and how I’m getting free traffic from Google and other search engines.
Today, this post will teach you how to get your website on google in 30 seconds. Around 30 seconds it usually takes, but sometimes can take a bit more or less than that.
Yeah, I know it sounds impossible and probably a lot of people that already know this will hate me for revealing this method.
Don’t worry. This is not another black hat SEO technique that teaches you to create fake backlinks for your website or trying to sell you a magic ranking software. It’s free, it’s fast and approved by Google.
How Much Traffic Can I Get From Google?
Google is the most popular search engine and also the site with the highest volume of traffic in the world. And Alexa only shows the data from the main Google.com domain, but Google uses local domain extensions for every country (Google.ro, Google.in, Google.de, Google.co.uk, etc.) so the traffic is even higher than that.
I don’t have exact stats about how many won’t search queries Google processes, but according to searchengineland.com, in 2016, they estimate that Google handles at least 2 trillion searches per year.
But I don’t love Google only because it helps me to find any site I’m looking for on the web, but I also love Google because it also gets me free traffic from its result pages.
I’m only a small fish in a big pond, but some people made millions online thanks to SEO and the free targeted traffic received from Google’s results.
Other people have seen a business opportunity in this, and they have build companies that provide search engine optimization services. Some companies are paying a lot of money for this kind of services because if they are in a very competitive niche and they manage to reach on the first page of Google, they hit the jackpot and the investment is well worthed.
How To Rank on Google
But how can we the “small fish” benefit from Google and receive traffic from the search engine results when the competition has become so high in 2016?
There are keywords with an insane amount of results and the most popular keywords are searched in Google by millions of people every month.
The good part is that even if you have a website in a high competitive niche, there are always keywords you can target that don’t have as much competition. To find those keywords, I use a free tool from Google called Google Keyword Planner.
Google Keyword Planner is a tool provided for the people who intend to advertise their websites using Google’s advertising platform called Google Adwords, but it’s also a very useful tool for making an idea about the volume of a specific search keyword, to find related keywords or the keywords with less competition.
Even though the Keyword Planner will show you a “Low”, “Medium” or “High” competition for some keywords, that is only based on the number of Google Adwords advertisers bidding for that keyword.
Let’s assume I want to rank for “How To Get Your Website On Google” ( that’s the keyword which this post is optimized for 😀 ).
I will first go to Google Keyword Planner and see if there are people searching for this exact keyword.
In this case, there are between 1000 and 10000 people who are searching for “how to get your website on google” every month.
That’s a good amount of traffic for a single keyword if you ask me.
Next, I will try to see how competitive this keyword is.
To determine the real competition level of a keyword, I first go to Google and simply type the keyword in the search box.
That’s a lot of results.
However, the number of results is not too relevant and in most of the times doing this will only discourage you to go for a specific keyword since Google will usually display all the available pages, even though the results on the next pages are not very targeted for the searched phrase.
What I do next, to get a better idea of how many results I will need to outrank, is to type the following in the search box:
allintitle:”how to get your website on google”
This query will return only the pages indexed by Google that have this exact phrase in the title of the page.
Much better, right?
If there are less than 500 results and if the pages displayed on the first page are not from some very high authority sites, I usually go for that keyword. If not, I get back to Google Planner and try to find other variations of that keyword with less competition.
It’s not a guarantee that you’ll be able to get on the first page of Google even with a low number of results, but with a better content, quality backlinks, and a more SEO optimized post, you might have a chance.
Anyway, since the purpose of this post is not to teach you how to do keyword research (I wrote a bit more about that in my post about Amazon Niche Research ), I will get back to the initial purpose and teach you how to get your site indexed in Google fast.
While most of the new bloggers struggle and wait weeks to get a new post indexed by Google, I recently discovered a technique that allows me to get my posts in Google in no time. In fact, that’s extremely fast and it only takes around 30 seconds until you can see your URL indexed in Google.
If you are an established blogger or an SEO person, you might already know about this. If not, I’m just glad to share this with you for free because you are reading my blog.
What do you need to make this method work?
This only works with your own website.
It doesn’t work for forum links, YouTube links, sites built with website builders or other free platforms where you don’t have FTP access or access to the HTML code of your website.
You will also need a Google account. This is free and you probably have one already.
Once you have your Google account, you need to go to Google Webmasters (also known as Google Search Console). Click the “connect” link from the top-right side of the page. On the next page, you will see your websites list if you’ve already added your website.
If not, click the “Add a property” button.
Then add your website URL in the pop-up that shows up and click on “Add”.
On the next page, Google will ask you to confirm your website by downloading an HTML file and placing it to the root of the directory where your site files are located. You will need to use an FTP client for that or you can also do that using the file manager of your Cpanel (if your web hosting company uses Cpanel).
If not, you can click the “Alternate Methods” tab to find a few other alternative methods for confirming your website. I think uploading the HTML file or adding a meta tag inside the head HTML section are the easiest ways.
Once you have verified your account, you should see it listed in your Google Webmasters account.
How To Get Your Website On Google Fast
Now that you have your site added and verified in your Google Webmasters account, click on its URL to access more options.
On the next page, Google will provide a set of statistics if you had your website added by some time. If your site was just recently added, it will take some time till Google will collect some information about your website. Anyway, that’s not what interest us right now. You just want your new post indexed fast by Google.
From the left side menu, click on “Crawl“, then on “Fetch as Google” submenu.
Next, in the form from the center-top of the page, paste the slug of your post like in the screenshot below (do not include your domain name). If you have a brand new website and you want the home page to be indexed, just leave that field empty.
The next step is to click the “Fetch” button from the right side of the input field.
Your URL will appear in the list of submitted URLs but has not been submitted yet. To send the URL, click the “Submit to index” button.
Next, you should see the following window.
Tick the captcha verification box and select “Crawl only this URL“. This will tell Google to only crawl the submitted URL, while the second option will tell Google to crawl the submitted URL and all the links found on that page.
If everything is OK, you should see “URL Submitted to Index” message under the “Status” column instead the “Submit to index” button.
Don’t worry if you also see a “Redirected” message. Either the URL status is “Redirected” or “Completed“, your URL has been successfully submitted to Google and it will be indexed very fast.
Now, if you want to check if Google has indexed your website, open an incognito window (CTRL+SHIFT+N for Google Chrome or CTRL+SHIFT+P for Mozilla Firefox) in your web browser. If you open Google in an incognito/private window, the web browser won’t allow Google to save a cached version of the search results to your web browser.
Type the following in Google’s search form to check if your URL has been indexed.
Of course, replace “marketingshot.com/how-to-get-your-website-on-google” with your URL. Also, remove “http://” from the URL.
In about 30 seconds, your URL should be indexed on Google. Refresh the page if doesn’t pop up the first time.
Even if Google had this function since a long time, not many website owners know about it.
Instead of waiting days, weeks or months for your site to be indexed on Google, you can now use this simple technique to get your website listed in Google’s search results almost instantly.
