Here are some tips for quick indexing pages of your website on Google

How to check if your WordPress website is indexed on Google or not?


Before you index a site on google, it is worth checking out, as Google may already be behind you.

Here’s a quick hack, to verify your website is indexed on Google. Put the following in the search box:

You will see what content and pages are already indexed on Google. If Google has already added your site, your site pages will appear in the results that Google has indexed:


If your site does not appear, it means that you have to do it yourself.

Prepare content for your WordPress website

In order for Google to notice your site, you need to understand its requirements. Google can call the online library that contains information about everything. As with any library, the Google divides information into categories, so it is easy to find.

Consider This:

What if we get a book on the subject of design from a library but after opening it, we see that it is empty? What should be done? Maybe put the book aside, because it is useless.

So does Google. If its bots visit your website, and it’s empty, it just lays it aside. That’s why the first step is to fill the site content. All website pages must have useful and unique content. Then the indexing of your site will be a success.

Creating and adding a sitemap for your WordPress website


When you create worthy content, the time comes to draw the attention of Google. The best and quickest way is to create a sitemap. Recently, we published 50 Most Useful WordPress Tips and Tricks for Beginners.

Do not worry, it just sounds scary, actually create and upload a simple sitemap. To do this it is best to use a special plugin. At the top, plugins like Yoast, Squirrly SEO, and even Jetpack has this option.

Before you create a sitemap, you should do a few things.

Check your WordPress website in Google Search Console

You surely have a Google Analytics account already, but many people forget to set up an account in the Google Console, the Search (previously known as Google Webmasters).

If you submit a sitemap to Google, you should start it with the test site. If you do not have an account yet, it’s time to create it.

Submitting your sitemap to Google

After connecting your site to Google Search Console, it is time to submit your sitemap. Fortunately, it’s very simple.

Sign into Search Console and locate the menu item Crawl → Sitemap.


In the upper right corner click on the Add / Test Sitemap.


You will add a URL parameter of your XML sitemap.


Then add the URL (which should look something like this: and add it.

That’s all! Now Google can examine your website and determine it in some category.

You can stop reading now, but our goal is to help you index your site quickly. We want to share a few tips that will help you to attract the attention of Google.

Start getting traffic to your WordPress website

Even if your site isn’t indexed by search engines yet, it’s still considered “live,” and your visitors can access it through direct links or social media shares. Here’s the interesting part: Google search is evolving! It’s not just relying on website content for ranking anymore.

Google can decide if your site deserves faster indexing by looking at the direction of traffic. Suppose people find their way to your site organically, even before it’s officially indexed. As a result, Google will index your site faster since it’s valuable and relevant to searchers.

Also, there are several ways to attract visitors for faster indexing. Removing no-follow links is one of those ways. Googlebot crawls the websites before indexing them on Google.

Nofollow links simply tell search engines not to follow them for ranking purposes. This means that, ultimately, Google will not index the page with those links. Removing nofollow for internal links within your WordPress website can improve SEO. Thus, you must ensure that all nofollow internal links are removed. For that, all you have to do is search for and remove the rel=“nofollow” link property. You can use the WordPress block editor or just the HTML code itself to accomplish this.

Social networks

This may sound not very modern, but the use of social networks and the buttons can bring a lot of traffic to your site.

This is the reason why we insist that the content should be the first step if you want to attract visitors.

Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn can help you with this.

Blog Commenting

Using blog commenting technique for building backlinks is almost dead. Although life in it is still warm, but this method is not suitable for a solid SEO strategy.

However, leaving really useful comments in the top blogs on your subject is a great way to attract visitors to your new site.

Harsh Agrawal used this method to index website in 24 hours, so it is definitely worth a try.

Too many comments in the blogs in one sitting can be regarded as a scheme to attract attention, and it can do more harmful than help.

Participation in groups in social networks

There is no limit on the number of groups in social networks, to which you can join. Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Plus have a wide selection.

Look for the group on these platforms and join the favorite. When you get some success in those groups, you create an opportunity to share a link to your website that will attract few visitors.

It is a bit time consuming but can pay off over time.

Start creating your own links

Publication of guest posts – This is a great way to build some high-quality links for your site, even if it is not even indexed on Google.

If you do not write very well, then there are a couple of other options:

  • Practice writing content for your blog until you cannot write a guest entry for your sphere of blogs.
  • Find a freelance writer or content manager and work with him. Most writers do not pay for posting in their blogs. But building a good relationship with them, you will have more chance of getting a high-quality link.


Once you have directed traffic to your site and submit your sitemap, go to the Google Search and try to find your URL again.

If your site is indexed, we congratulate you, if it is not, carry on with the activities!
