This is a technique I discovered a few weeks ago on how you can get your newest blog post get indexed by Google in less than one hour, well, in fact, not actually an hour but in just a matter of minutes, and you don’t need any third party indexer to make this happen because all you just need to use is the Google Web Master Tool.
I am assuming that everyone has access to Google Web Master Tools, if you still have none, I recommend you to get access now, its free anyway and you can start by going to this link
Now Lets Start!
Step 1: Go to “Fetch as Google”
In the left side menu of Google Webmaster Tools, just look for Crawl > Fetch as Google and you will be sent to the page where you can get your newest blog post to be indexed by google
Step 2: Input your URL that need indexing
You will see in that page a text field. Just copy and paste there the permalink that you need to get indexed then click “Fetch” or “Fetch and Render”. Any of the options will do, and if you don’t need your site to be rendered, just click “Fetch”. Also, there is no need to enter the whole URL, just the permalink as what you can see in the image below. (in this example, I will use my then recently published post https://www.wpislife.com/wordpress-speed-optimization-3-actionable-tips-to-achieve-sub-1s-page-speed/)
Step 3: Request Indexing
You will now see the url of your new article in the list as shown in the image below. The next thing that you have to do is click the “Request Indexing” button
A pop-up will appear and will ask you what kind of indexing will be performed by google:
Option 1: Crawl only this URL
Use this option if you will not need to index the links in your post. You have a monthly quota of 500 submissions for this option
Option 2: Crawl this URL and its direct links
Use this option if you also want to index the links in your post. Just make sure to use this wisely because unlike the first option, you only have a monthly quota of 10 submissions for this option
And that’s it! You can now see from the list that indexing has been requested for this URL, and all you have to do now is wait for a few minutes
So after a few minutes (around 2 – 3 minutes in my experience) you can start checking the url in Google Search Bar to see if your newest post has been indexed already.
Voila! It’s already been indexed. No more waiting for several days or weeks before your newest blog post gets indexed by the Big G!
Just notice however that from the timestamp, it says “4 hours ago” when in fact the article was published just a few minutes ago, I think it has something to do with time zone issues, but I really have no idea about that.
I tried doing it again on one of my another then newest post after I got it published. The article got indexed immediately after a few minutes using this trick, though the time stamp says again the same thing
Anyway, I really don’t care what the time stamp says; as long as I am able to get my articles get indexed by Google immediately, I really have no issues with that.
