Previously we discussed what web crawlers are. Now we are going to talk about how to attract them, and why you want to do that. When you create a new website, or update your website, you want people to be able to find your site. The easiest way for people to find your website is through search. However, achieving top status in search results takes several things: time, and dedication. Part of getting your website in search results is getting indexed by Google very own web crawlers. But what makes web crawlers want to index your website? Here is how you can invite Google to index your website.

 

Create a Sitemap

A sitemap is a list of pages within a website, think of it as a website’s table of contents. Sitemaps tell Google and other search engines what the contents of a particular website are and how often they are updated. If you are unsure of how to

install a sitemap, we suggest installing the Google xml sitemap plugin, which will automatically create, update, and submit your sitemap to search engines.

Once you have created a sitemap you will want to submit it to search engines. Start by submitting your website’s sitemap to search engine webmaster tools. To start, create a webmaster tool account with Google, then submit the link of your website’s sitemap. This alerts their web crawlers and invites Google to index your website.

 

Create and Update Profiles

Another way to invite Google to index your website, is to create and update social media profiles. Web crawlers use links to your website in order to find your website. So, by creating social media profiles for your website, and linking it to your website, you will invite Google to index your website faster.

 

Share Your Link

Sharing the link of your website on social media is another great way you can invite Google to index your website. Create a steady stream of social media updates with links pointing back to your website. This will not only invite Google to index your website, but also help create traffic. Web crawlers track social behaviors online. By sharing the link to your website, you alert them. You should also start bookmarking your website on social bookmarking sites like stumpleupon or delicious.

 

Create Fresh New Content

Creating fresh new content on a regular basis is also a great way you can invite Google to index your website. Running a blog is a great way you can maintain your content quota, and also engage with your customers. Aim to update your blog at least once a week if not more. Web crawlers like fresh new content because it helps them provide more relevant search results.
