Let’s get started with section 1

Before getting into the process, I will show you how to check whether your blog or even blog post is already getting indexed or not in Google.

Open Google.com and in the search bar type ‘site:bloggingnavigation.com’ you can type any domain with the extension of your choice. I have taken Bloggingnavigation.com as an example.

As you can see in the image below, the bloggingnavigation.com is shown and it means the website has been indexed by Google. Also, look at the number of results, [About 190 results] that means there are 190 pages that have been indexed on Google from Blogging Navigation.

Sitemap is a kind of file that can be accessible via a Link after being created. A sitemap includes all the URL of the websites and whenever the new page or posts are added, the same will be added directly to the sitemap that makes it easy for Google crawlers to be aware of new pages.

There are some plugins available in which you can create your XML sitemap for free. Yoast SEO, RankMath and Google XML Sitemap are the popular WordPress plugins that help users create a free sitemap in just a few clicks.

Once you generated sitemap using any one of  the plugins, you will be given an unique URL that looks like https://bloggingnavigation.com/sitemap_index.xml

Now, login to your Google search console account. Choose your website property for which you want to add a sitemap. On your left side, you will see the option sitemap under the index. Click on the sitemap and you will be requested to provide your sitemap URL generated using the plugin.

Just copy and paste the sitemap URL and hit the submit button. That’s the process. Your sitemap will be submitted.

Within a few days, your website will get indexed on Google. You can check the index status of your website by following the easy manual method I mentioned above.

Add the Article Links to High Authority Social Bookmarking Sites

Most of the bloggers think the social bookmarking submission process is no longer a trustworthy link building task. Maybe the task won’t help SERP rankings, but submitting your newly published links to social bookmarking sites may help quickly indexing your blog posts.

There is no point submitting the URL to all social bookmarking sites out there. Ensure to check the authority of the sites and then add your links there.

Reddit, Digg and StumbleUpon are good social bookmarking sites where you can add your post links as bookmarks to gain quick indexing.

Try Interlinking to Keep your Readers Stay for Long Time on your Blog

If you are publishing a blog post on your blog, ensure to find out similar posts on your blog and then interlink for relevant anchor texts to the similar blog posts.

Doing such interlinking tasks make your readers not leave your blog just after reading one single post. The visitors may be used to reading other posts too, if the interlinking is well handled in your posts.

The process decreases your blog bounce rate as well as help the blog posts get quickly indexed on Google and other popular search engines as well.

Add Social Media Sharing Buttons To Your Blog Posts

As you see in the image, I have enabled social media sharing buttons below the blog post as well as on the left hand side.

A blog post with good social signals (number of social media shares that the post gets) will easily get indexed on Google in no time.

There are too many plugins available in both free and premium versions to enable the social media sharing buttons on your blog. Get one best plugin and activate it on your blog to gain social media shares and get your blog posts instantly indexed on Google.

Participate in Facebook Groups Weekly Promotional Threads

Nowadays, almost every blogger owns a Facebook group on behalf of his/her blogs. So, you have to search for the groups related to your niche.

On every FB group, once in a week, the group admin runs a promotional thread in which other group members can post their blog post URL to gain shares from other members.

Join in such groups and ensure to know about the group promotional thread activities, read the regulations as well and drop your link there to get maximum shares. Your blog posts may get indexed sooner on Google.

Post Blog Contents in your Blog on a Regular Basis

You need a good amount of blog posts to be published in your blog on a regular interval to gain authority among your readers as well as from Google crawlers.

Websites or Blogs with high authorization scores get indexed quickly on Google compared to blogs with very low authorization scores.

If you publish interesting yet quality content in your blog regularly, it does give your readers trust and they may keep on visiting your blog to read more stuff. Google will also consider such blogs as good one and offer fast indexing.

Submit your Blog to Blog Directories

Blog directories sites are almost similar to social bookmarking. Possibly, you can submit your blog URL to the best directories to gain authority and fast indexing your posts on Google.

Make sure to check the DA and spam score of the directories you submit your URL. Also, check whether the directories you add URL to are somewhat related to your niche or accepts categories of your niche.

Submitting your links to spam directory sites gets your SERP rankings down. Sometimes it will get your links de-indexed in Google. So, submit your link, only if you find the directory an authorized one.

Mobile-Friendly Blogs Easily get Index on Google

It’s hard to find people using desktop or PC to browse the internet. After the smartphone evolution, the usage became less. So, the blog or website you develop must be mobile-friendly as well as well optimized for mobile devices.

Google loves posts and pages that are optimized for mobile devices when it comes to indexing and ranking. So, if you focus on building your blog, work better on the mobile optimization tasks.

Before trying all the said strategies in both the sections 1 and 2, there should be a WordPress setting you need to check. Otherwise, whatever you do, your blog posts and blog will not get indexed on Google.

Firstly, your WordPress blog should allow your web contents to be visible on Search Engines.

Login to your WordPress blog and on the left hand side menu, click settings and then click Readings. In the page, you will see the option called Search Engine Visibility, ensure to uncheck the option to let search engines crawl your content.
