If you need to get a page indexed in Google quickly

If you need to get a page indexed in Google quickly, I’ve previously recommended using Google Search Console’s URL Submit Tool. However, according to an article in Search Engine Journal, if Google is not indexing your content, it’s your fault and you need to diagnose the reason why it’s not being indexed. The URL Submit Tool should not be necessary if you use one, two or even all three of these techniques:

  1. Link to the new content from a high-level page on your site;
  2. Ensure all new content is added to your site map instantly and automatically;
  3. Include new content in an RSS feed available to crawlers.

We use all three, and most pages appear within 24 hours, but I’m sure experiences will vary!
