This is a question of many wonders, most have speculated from time that you have no say over whether your new website r blog will be indexed by Google and or whether you will show up in search results. Even though most people believe this, In our experience there are best practices to help make sure this happens quickly and in time.
Here is the quickest way to get Google to index your new website or blog (Follow the steps below and you are all good to go):
1. Add Meta Tags & Descriptions
This is very important, you have to have the title of your website as well as meta descriptions and your keywords in the <head></head> section of your website. This will help search engine bots (Not just Google) to better understand your website and how it is intended to be displayed in search results.
2. Create A Sitemap
As the name implies, a sitemap is basically a map showing all the pages/posts on your websites in a properly listed manner. It serves as a guide to help better understand the structure of your website.
3. Confirm Your Site With Webmaster Tools
You want to get indexed quickly, and you want as many pages indexed too so I imagine the best way to get this done is to notify Google of your site and submit a sitemap to Google while you are at it. You can find the page at Webmaster Tools. You have to confirm ownership of the site before you can do much with it so make sure to do that as per the instructions immidiately.
4. Register For Google Analytics
For your own tracking purposes, it is very important to add Google Analytics codes to your website. This way, for every new visit to your site, not only you but Google is also aware.
5. Register Social Media Profiles
You want people to know about your new website quickly and you want them to be able to find it. The quickest way to do this (as you currently do not exist in search) is to use Social Networks. Register a page for your business on Facebook and be sure to add a link to your website in the required field. Rinse and repeat the process for other Social Networks like Pinterest, Twitter, Google+, Delicious, Instagram… As many as you can think of. The links may be “nofollow” but they go a long way.
6. Build Links To Your New Website
You want to bookmark your new website with places like Stumbleupon, you want to remember to add your blog url when you leave a meaningful comment on a friends blog. What you do not want to do however is buy spammy links or run through this process a bit too fast. Be gradual and be natural. Add a link back to your new website when you register on a new website.
7. Be Patient
Google has been known to index new sites and discover them on their own anywhere from 2 day to 2 whole weeks, some website never even make it to the index for poor content, lack of proper navigation and other atrocities like spam. You do not want to be one of these websites. So follow the best practices and continue to add fresh content in the case that your new website has a blog and you can be sure Google will get around to indexing in its own time.
When you do get indexed, your customers will soon be able to find you via search and you should begin to see more organic traffic from there on out.
