3 Tips to make Google crawl your Site more often

8 03 2010

There are thousands upon thousands of blogs on the internet, covering every niche imaginable. Because of this, there is a lot of competition out there. Bloggers all have a variety of techniques they use to direct traffic to their site. However, most people will agree that nothing beats organic, natural search engine traffic.

Any web page on the internet is picked up regularly by Google and ranked in order of relevance. Google crawls some web pages more often than others, depending of relevance, backlinks, etc. The pages that are indexed quickly are referred to as ‘authority’ pages. If you want your webpage to be indexed more often, you need to increase it’s relevancy and value.

So, here are a few tips for getting Google to crawl more often;

  • Update your Content regularly – Google, or any other search engine for that matter, won’t crawl a site often if it’s not updated regularly with unique content. Pages with duplicate content are indexed very slowly, if at all. The content should be informative, and include some targeted keywords (remember to keep your keyword ratio under 2%).
  • Interlink your posts – i.e. link from one page to another, inside your website/blog. This makes it a lot easier for Google to navigate through your site, and therefore index your pages quicker, and more often
  • Google Reader – Enter your RSS feed into Google Reader, as if you were a subscriber reading your blog. This makes Google search your site more often for updated content, because it needs to publish updated content in Google Reader.

For the one tip, what if you already have like 100+ subscribers in Google. Should you still add it to your reader?

Yes, definitely – The more subscribers you have to Google, the more people will be able to see your website through their Google Reader as well, so not only will Google crawl your site more, but you’ll get additional visits from your subscribers.

Hope that helps 🙂
