Exactly 22 hours ago I reported to my opt-in list that my latest site VideoCameraUser.com was officially launched. Exactly 22 hours later, I searched Google and the site has been fully indexed displaying all pages so far.
Some meetings commanded my attention today from 2pm on so I don’t know when exactly the pages became visible on Google, but for sure at 9am this morning Google had not picked them up yet.
That’s okay though. Anything withing the same 24 hour period is good with me for getting a brand new website indexed and listed…and is particularly a good turnaround for a new domain name.
How did it happen?
Pretty easily, but probably the most important five steps I took included:
1. Choosing a domain name that is related to the content I would be talking about.
2. Supplying a core of pages that would be interesting enough to Google to pick up.
3. Adding Feed Burner, which is now a Google product and Google loves when you use their products!
4. Optimizing the site so that Google’s spiders would have an easy time of crawling the pages.
5. Adding a few links on some of my own websites that get a lot of traffic.
Actually, there’s no magic in this and it’s nothing new. It’s the same thing I do with any website I launch. And, isn’t that one of the greatest things about the Internet? That you can follow the same process over and over again and it works year after year.
What’s the fastest you’ve ever had a new website become visible on Google? Care to share any nightmare stories about getting a new site or an old site on Google?
Just remember this moment. There were no videos on this website yet and it took a full day to get the site pages indexed. Let’s see what happens when I add our first few videos and how I use Video SEO to make it happen.
