How to get google to index your site

The eye of Google is always vigilant on what happens on the Net and almost all sites (except for those that are part of the deep Web) automatically end up in the results of his research. However, in some special cases, the engine that deals with scanning the Web in search of new information does not perform its work in a timely manner.

Here come into play the tools that Google has made available to webmasters and that allow you to recall – so to speak – the attention of the search engine by directly reporting the addresses of the sites (or individual pages) that do not appear still in the SERP, ie in the pages with the search results.

Eye, these tools should be used only if your site does not appear among the results of Google searches or if some pages are listed in non-updated versions (containing information now obsolete), do not serve to improve the positioning: that is far from the speech ! Having clarified this fundamental concept I would say that we can move on to the point and see together how to index Google site. It is not difficult.

The official tool for reporting new (or updated) addresses to Google is the one available on this page. You can use it to report sites of which you are an administrator or a third-party site / page, it does not matter.

How does it work? It is so intuitive that it would not even need to be explained. All you need to do is connect to it and sign in with your Google account. If you do not have a Google account yet, find out how to create it by reading the tutorial I have dedicated to this topic. It’s free.

Once logged in, type the address of the site or page to be reported in the URL field, copy the security code (captcha) in the box below and click the Submit button to send your report.

As specified at the beginning of the page, not all URLs reported are added to the Google index and there is no certainty about the time taken to acquire information. In short, it is not said that the report is successful. However it is one of the very few roads we have to communicate directly with the Google search system and, alas, we must be content!

It is possible to index the Google site also through the Webmaster Tools, which, however, are exclusively dedicated to those who own a website. You can not use them to report sites on which you do not have full access.

To add a site to Google Webmaster Tools, linked to the page I just linked to you and click on the Access Webmaster Tools button, then type the address of your site in the text field located at the bottom right and press on button Add a site.

At this point, you must verify your identity by proving that you are really the administrator of the indicated site. To do this you can upload an HTML file on the site (the exact instructions are in the Recommended method) or you can use one of the methods shown on the Alternative methods tab, such as inserting an HTML code to the home page of the site or use Google Analytics. If you have a personal blog on the WordPress platform, for example, you can verify your identity by copying the HTML tag provided by Google in the Tools> Available Tools> Google Webmaster Tools field of the blog management panel.

Once the verification is complete, from the pages of your site “in feed” to the Google scanning engine by selecting the item Scan> View as Google from the left sidebar and clicking on the Recover button on the page that opens.

By taking advantage of these simple tools you should be able to “wake up” Google and allow your site to appear (but not to go up) in search results. To position yourself better on Google it is necessary to make a lot of effort and have a bit of luck: find some advice about it in my guide on the subject.
