How to get your Website Indexed on Google

By Nadya Khoja

The term “Google Rank” is one that you’ve probably heard quite frequently. If you’re not sure exactly what it refers to, but you know that it’s important, then this infographic will certainly be handy for you. Your “Google Rank”, also known as your Page Rank (PR) is measured on a scale of 0 to 10. Your goal is to increase that number, and the best way to do this is with quality backlinks.

What is a quality backlink?

Simply stated, a quality backlink is a link that goes back to your website, which comes from a credible source. So if you’re trying to increase your PR, you need to try to get other sites that rank really high to mention your site on theirs.

How is this done?

In order to get quality backlinks, you need to produce content that other people want to link back to. Good quality content is absolutely key, and that means it needs to be well researched and original. A good method to follow is called P.E.A.C. which stands for Practical Value, Entertaining, Awe-Inspiring and Credible. If your content contains these 4 elements, you increase the chances of it getting shared and linked back to.

How can you check your ranking?

In order to know your page ranking, you first need to set up a Google Webmaster Tool account. Once this is set up, you need to submit your site and check crawl stats. By registering your website with this tool, it essentially alerts Google that your site is alive and that Google needs to mark it.

Every time you update a page or add a new page, it’s a good idea to submit it to be crawled. Follow the rest of the steps outlined in the infographic below to make sure your sites are getting indexed, and to improve your Google Page Rank.
