Now if you are interested in getting your blog indexed then you may have sometimes heard about “submitting blog links to search engines.”
Here I want to tell you that it’s an old idea…
Before there were less no. of blogs so submitting a link worked and the search engines used to add the links to a new blog. But now with the increase of blog’s that function has become slow.
So if you submit your blog link today then your blog will get indexed after a week or too. The period may increase to a month too.
The best way to get indexed is linking your blog to another blog which has a good reputation in front of Search Engines.
You can start writing 1 or 2 articles for some good Guest Blogs so that you can link your guest post to your blog. This will then tell the Search engines that your blog is a new one which is not indexed yet and by seeing the reputation of the guest blog the Search engine crawlers will come and index your blog links.
Alternative, but still it’s an effective way to get your blog indexed:
Writing for guest blogs need some good hard work as they will accept only the best things submitted to them and you will also have to wait some days to get your article accepted by the guest blog.
So, if you want an alternative way then you can start commenting on some reputed blogs…
By doing this you can also get your blog indexed by the search engines as they crawl the comment links too.
There are also many other benefits of blog commenting…
These 2 methods are the most famous ones at this time as it takes only a few hours to get indexed in the search engines. To check if you are indexed or not; you can either go to Google.com or Bing.com and copy paste your blog link.
