My Site doesn’t appear on Google: what to do?” This is one of the most frequent questions I hear from beginners new to SEO (search engine optimization). First, let me explain what makes your page “pop up” or make it rank higher in the SERP – or search engine result page. In this article, we will discuss what you can do to make sure that Google sees your site when someone searches for a keyword related to your page.
A Google robot called Googlebot is the one that indexes your site. This robot visits your site and takes note of all the relevant keywords in the content on your site. When it indexed your site, it sends back details about your site, including the URL and a link to your site in the resource box. The link to your site is called a linkback. The link backs to your site from other sites that link back to your site.
You may wonder why the algorithm that Google uses to index your pages is different from the rest. Most Internet businesses follow what is called the White Page algorithm – which places less emphasis on the actual page number and more emphasis on the title tags and meta tags related to the site. This means that a site with fewer pages can rank higher in the overall scheme of things. However, Google has an internal ranking system which is based upon the total number of links that point to each individual page.
One way to help your site be indexed more quickly is to add a relevant list of keywords to your site. This helps Google and the other search engines understand what your pages are about. It also helps you to rank for those terms more easily.
How do I get my site indexed faster? The best way is to submit your site to as many directories as you can. In addition, it’s important to submit your site to as many search engines as you can. For example, go to Google, type in the URL of your page, and click the search button. Note that you’ll need to submit your URL to all of the major engines, as well as to any directories that may be related to your niche.
Can I increase the ranking of my pages by bookmarking them? Yes, you can easily increase the ranking of individual pages by bookmarking them. However, bookmarking the entire site will not help your pages to rise in ranking.
What to do next? There are some steps that you can take to help your site rise in the search engines. First, if you have internal links pointing to each individual page within your site, remove those links. Then, try to submit your site to as many different directory listings as you can.
This can increase your site’s visibility in the search engines. Finally, another thing that you can do is to submit your site to a link directory. Some of these directories allow site submissions for free. Others charge a nominal fee. Note that the more links you have out there pointing back to your pages, the better off your site will appear overall.
Does my site still appear on the search engine results? Yes! You just need to make sure you have the text relevant to your site and the keywords that you are trying to rank for in the first paragraph of the title of your website. For example, if you are selling handcrafted jewelry, the title of the page should include either the words jewelry (such as “jewelry”) or handcrafted (such as “handcrafted jewelry”). Also, ensure that you have the proper page title and description in your meta tags.
Does my site still appear on the search engines index? Yes, if you have only one page and one keyword in the title and one sentence in the meta tag for that page. If you have multiple pages with similar content and one of them has a keyword in the title and another in the description, then you should not have a problem. However, if you have hundreds of pages, then it is often a good idea to create index pages for each of your pages and to place the keywords in the title and in the description in order to allow the search engines to find them.
Does my site work with the other major search engines? Yes! Most people use Yahoo and Google, but these two engines are not the only ones that you can submit your site to. Other search engines such as Ask, AOL Search, Netscape and Ask Jeeves all allow you to place links on their search engines, so be sure you submit your site to all of the search engines that you wish to be listed with.
