Ultimate Demon, like many other tools comes with a built in “ping” utility. It’s a very powerful way of altering other interested websites (mostly blogs) that you have new content that they might be interested in.
Back in the day, this was often enough to get your content indexed, and sometimes even ranked. Not so much any more.
The Tiered Linking Solution
Ultimate Demon of course allows you to create tiered link structures, the idea being that the first layer is a powerful authoritative link set that points directly to your site, the second layer “powers” up the first by supplying it with its own authority. The third layer is an indexing layer, effectively ensuring that the second layer is discovered.
Traditional link pyramids such as those created by Ultimate Demon do this very well, but there are less spam filled ways to get your direct link profiles found and indexed. Particularly if you are only creating a few links, say less than 100, and creating them over time. Then read on to see other ways of surviving the “link spam” jungle without contributing yourself.
The Issue At Hand
What Does Indexed Mean?
First, we should perhaps explain what we mean by the term “indexed”. Basically, every single time that you write a blog post or change something on your website you want the search engines to know about it. The reason is that this will allow people to find your freshest content and freshest updates to your website because surely you do not want people searching for whatever it is you offer to be given out of date information?
What Google does is it sends out its spiders across the web to check for changes to websites. These spiders then report back that changes have been made, including what they are, so your own individual index is then changed on the search engine database to reflect that.
Getting Your Content Indexed Quickly.
So, let’s say you have made some changes and clearly you want to be indexed as quickly as possible. Well, there are several things that you can do right now that will help to speed up the process.
Your XML Sitemap.
First, you need to have an XML sitemap in place and to then submit this to Google via their Webmaster Tools section. If your website has been constructed using WordPress, then creating this map is very easy as there are various plugins that you can download that will do it all for you. However, if you use something other than WordPress, then it is still easy enough as there are various websites that will produce one for you as the coding can be quite complex, so this makes sure that everything is absolutely fine before you submit it to Google.
If you need any help, then Google can certainly point you in the right direction as it makes their life so much easier when this sitemap has been submitted to them, so they are only too happy to help.
Use Social Media To Your Advantage.
Google loves social media and they have actually placed even more importance on the connection between your content and the likes of Facebook with recent updates to their search algorithm. What you need to do here is to post about your updates on your social media profiles and really let the world know, which means your contacts and friends list, that some change has been made to your website and they should go and check it out.
However, with this you need to go a bit further and try to encourage people on your social media to share your link via their own profiles and to submit comments. The reason for this is that Google love to see what is being discussed and shared on these sites, so they then place some added importance on those updates. If you do it right, then you can be indexed in next to no time, but you do need the network to achieve this.
Get Google Themselves To Help You.
Yep, Google can also help you with getting your content indexed and the key is to go to their Webmaster Tools section and check out a feature that they have on there called Fetch. The idea behind Fetch is that it shows you what their very own spider sees, but it then advises you on what you need to do in order to get it to index things faster.
It will teach you how to optimize your content better, to understand links better, and to quickly troubleshoot any additional issues that have been identified. By doing this, you will then find that Google will pay more attention to any changes that you then make and any new content will be indexed faster than ever before.
To use Fetch you really need to do the following.
First, log into your Google account, or if you do not have one get it set up as it is free and easy to do. You then need to go to the Webmaster Tools section and link your domain to that account. Once again this is easy to do and then click on your domain within this account.
When you do this, you will see a list of options down one side and look for the option that says “crawl” because in there is the link to Fetch. When this opens you simply enter the URL of either your website or the URL that contains the page that has been updated and then hit that Fetch button.
After this has been done, you should see an option to submit to index and of course you need to click on that to allow Google to do their thing. Out of the two options you should then think about only really using the “crawl only this URL” option and the listing will then get a green tick beside a box saying that it is completed.
That really is all that you need to do with Fetch although, as we indicated earlier, there are additional options available that will help you to optimize your content. However, if you want to stick to the basics and just get things indexed faster, then that is all you really need to think about doing.
Having your content indexed is extremely important. Without it, you will find that it becomes harder for people to even be aware that you exist and they will certainly have difficulty in finding your listing online. Do not allow yourself to slide into obscurity especially when you can do things that cost you absolutely no money whatsoever.
Follow the tips listed above and you will see a difference not only in getting your content indexed at all, but also the speed at which it happens.
Ultimate Demon’s Part In This
It is still preferable to use automation to find and create powerful first tier links, particularly if you are supporting a great number of sites. Doing it by hand, creating hundreds of relationships is rarely possible.
Most webmasters are incredibly selfish and will not link out to new sites. If they link out at all (and some don’t) it’s almost always to established authority sites that are not in direct competition with them for traffic or sales.
Google has instilled a great deal of fear in webmasters who are now running scared of creating outbound links to “bad areas”, so most don;t create outbound links to any site that isn’t already a very well established authority.
In short, without using Edwinsoft’s tools or similar, new sites stand virtually no chance.
It used to be bad, Google’s deliberate campaign of fear mongering has made an already selfish way of working almost a “closed shop” where newcomers with new ideas are actively discouraged.
Links still represent more than 50% of your SEO potential. Creating your own is about the only way in there is. But for all that, it doesn’t have to be, and indeed shouldn’t be a spam exercise with hundreds of thousands of redundant indexing links created. 2 tiers should be ample, use the methods above to get indexed.
