How to Get Google to Index Your Website?

In order to get traffic from Google, you first need to get indexed. If Google doesn’t know about your website, you will not get any organic traffic.

Step 1: Sign up for google search console which is a free service from Google which allows you to see your website similar to how Google see’s your website. They give you a glimpse, and show you things like, what errors you may have, what pages are they indexing, are they even crawling all your pages, because if they are not crawling your website that means they can’t index it.

Step2: Create an xml sitemap. If you have a WordPress blog, it’s quite easy. You can use the Yoast SEO Plugin which automatically create an xml sitemap for you. The good part about the Yoast SEO is that every time you update your website, it updates the sitemap automatically.

Step3: Submit the sitemap to Google Search Console so that Google can continually read all the changes that you are making to your website, and every time you add a page or delete a page. Google will know and will make the necessary changes on their end.

By following these easy steps, you are likely to get your website indexed in Google, your new pages will get crawled faster, and you should get more organic traffic in the long run. By doing this, you are not going to get traffic right away, as Google does not rank new websites at the top. It may take 4 to 8 months to see much better results compared to not doing this.
