Getting Indexed by Google
You register your website with Google and within a few hours Google will come to your website to pick up the sitemap and done! You have a sitemap! Right? No sitemap, no indexing of your website.
Then, wait, wait and wait. Nothing! Google comes and picks up the updates of “sitemap.tar.gz”. But you are not part of the index for weeks on end. Why? It's because your website hasn't been indexed. Eventually Google may index a few pages but indexing your whole website? That's another story.
Google's indexing secret
What's the incentive for Google to index your website? None. Inspite of Google's best effort in diversification, Google makes money only one way: “AdSense”. Before Google can serve ads that are relevant to your website, Google needs to index your website.
- Sign up for Google's “AdSense” and you will be indexed within 24 hours. Not just a couple of pages, your whole website will be indexed.
- You will need to evaluate if adding “AdSense” downgrades the content of your website versus having your full website being indexed by Google.
