How to make your website show up on Google

How to get your website found and indexed by Google?

The easiest way is to use Google Add url service. Unfortunately it doesn’t give you any control about the indexing process – the way that Google looks at every page on your site and saves them in it’s server for people to search from.

Google also offers another free service called Google Webmaster Tools (GWT). We recommend using it because it allows you to:

  • Submit your site to Google
  • Control updating rate and force Google to revisit your site (by re-submitting your sitemap)
  • See when Google has visited and indexed your site
  • See how users reach your site (incoming links and keywords)
  • Get Google’s view of your site
  • Diagnose problems (broken links, duplicated page title)
  • etc.

Submit site to Google: Webmaster Tools

To use the Google Webmaster Tools you first need to sign up. After signing up you can add the address of your site (http://www.mycompany.com). When the address is added Google asks verification from you to confirm that you really are the owner of the site. You have to choose HTML as verification method that gives you a code looking something like this: “googlef52f1d814b8972e9.html“.

Future tasks – get to the top

Once indexed you have half way to go. It requires a lot of work to get to the top in Google search results. The way to get to the top is to promote your site – promote it in popular blogs, websites and sites of your friends. Let them write about your site and link to your site. But of course the prerequisite for that is that the content of your site is valuable and interesting. We’ll write more about how to make it to the top of Google in a further post.

  1. Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    • I am currently using WordPress.com on this website. So I strongly recommend you to use WordPress.com or that you buy a host at for example: Hostgator.com, and setup a WordPress blog there. Since you can install plugins, change the PHP- codes and a lot more!

      So this will probally be the best thing you’ve ever done!

      But, I could also say that Blogger.com – Is a really good platform that you could use it’s hosted by “Google”. Feel free to try them out, they’re both free!
