Oftentimes I’m asked how to quickly and easily index a website in Google’s search database. For some this can become a painful experience – as in some cases new websites can take quite a while to be recognized by Google.
Today I’ll be focusing on one tip in order to remedy this problem. Use Twitter to get your site indexed by Google.
Twitter to Google
Twitter is an extremely powerful tool. It has the potential and ability to update thousands of people with one click of button – as well as spread links you’ve chosen to share. This is where Twitter can become helpful in indexing a new website. Much like a popular website has great linking power – a popular Twitter profile also shares this same capability. Twitter accounts with thousands of followers routinely generate hundreds of clicks to any link they post and share. Twitter profile pages also begin to gain increased weight with Google as they gain a following.
Tweet That Link!
In my own experience if I post an article to a blog – then Tweet the link – that post will be indexed in Google within a matter of minutes. Now it must be understood that this is partly due to the blog popularity itself – and its exposure to Google – but when that link is displayed on my Twitter profile – it gives Google one more area in which to find that post or website.
This is where social groups and networking become so incredibly powerful amongst Twitter. If you’ve developed a network of friends who Tweet the links you share – your reach and potential will be magnified beyond measure.
