8 Basic SEO Tips to Index & Rank New Content Faster

Learn how to submit a URL for indexing, how to tell Google which pages you want indexed and ranked, and more.

URL Inspection

Google has several tools and features that make it simple to submit a URL for indexing. The new URL Inspection tool in the Search Console gives us an easy way to submit URLs and tell Google which ones you want them to crawl and get them index instantly. So, it automatically puts that page into their priority queue for crawling, meaning these pages will be indexed faster than others.

Sitemaps

One of the best ways to get indexed is by using a sitemap. If you're not already doing this, it's one quick and easy thing that can guarantee your site will show up in Google search results. Use these simple steps:

-Add all URLs for each page on your website into a new Sitemap file; make sure they are formatted correctly with an XML header like <url><loc>http://www-site1/page2</loc></url>. Include metadata such as description or keywords about what visitors may find when visiting your website. This helps in letting Google know where it can find you in case of an update or change.

There are numerous ways to make your site crawl-able by Google, and one of the easiest is just updating your robots.txt file with a list of directives telling them where sitemaps are located on your website in order for it to be indexed easily.



In the new Google Search Console, there is an additional report called Search Console Sitemap Report. You can go in there and submit a sitemap of your site to Google which will help them index it more efficiently for when people are searching online on their search engine.

Google Indexing API

With Google and Bing releasing new APIs to help speed up the crawling process, indexing could take place much more quickly. An API can be used by a search engine to crawl 100s or 1000's of URLs with just one submission. This helps both users, as well as SEO specialists who rely on proper indexing for their work, and is done faster than ever before.

When you publish new content, the first thing to do is make sure that your site links back in. This will ensure important pages are not orphaned without any incoming traffic and it creates a more pleasant user experience for website visitors who might be looking around on various parts of your page.

When you publish new content, one basic step would be ensuring all other areas have some sort of link-back so they're not left alone with no outside interest or attention coming their way.

Google crawls throughout the web in order to gather relevant and updated information. When a website links to another site, it tells Google two things: that they need to crawl this link sometime in the future, and that it needs more weight when determining how valuable this page is based on other websites linking back.

Update old content

One way to make your site more useful and engaging for readers is by linking older content with newer articles. You might do this on the homepage, or you could go back through old posts and find a relevant spot to add links as well!

One great strategy that can help improve your website’s usefulness for customers is an in-depth link between new pages of content added recently and those from years ago. Linking up recent blog posts with past ones will create continuity within what visitors are reading, which has been found helpful when navigating long pieces of information online because it gives them markers they recognize.

You need to be proactive with your SEO. Remain on the lookout for keyword opportunities, and utilize them! One of my favorite techniques is using this search operator here where you type in keywords that are relevant to your content. This allows you to find those pages on the site that contain information about what you're looking for - making it a perfect target candidate when deciding which page from our older posts should get some love through linking back out there again via off-page optimization tactics

One easy and effective way to find out keyword based content on your site that you want to update is using google search operators. Type in a keyword and add site:website.com to find out any website that is based on your target keyword and link your content to it.

Share socially

When you have new content, sharing socially has a high correlation with increased rankings. However, when people share their work on sites like Reddit and Hacker News where they add actual links to the site that Google can easily crawl then this activity is even more powerful because these are external signals as opposed to just internal ones.

Really obvious step: social shares correlate highly with higher ranking in search engines so post away. When posting on aggregators such as Reddit or Hacker News make sure you include an 'external link' which works even better than adding one from within the blog itself since it's coming from outside sources.

Generate search clicks

Imagine you share a URL on Twitter. Instead of sharing it directly to the link, imagine that instead you post your tweet with an embedded Google search result for relevant keywords in order to rank higher and drive more traffic back to your site. People click the link and are taken straight away to what they wanted-your website, but through google search results.

Target query deserves freshness

When you're creating new content, think about how long it takes to rank your work. If there's a term that Google wants fresh results for and the user is searching specifically on that topic (for example "shopping near me") then targeting those queries with updated information can help boost rankings faster than if I was just trying to target general topics like shopping in general or all trending searches.

When picking keywords when crafting articles, make sure they are relevant terms which Google will favor over other individual words because of their importance at present time; these include search phrases such as “Shop Near Me” where users may be looking for stores nearby open now rather than an article containing unrelated information but published more recently.
