Google Tips

Add Your URL to Google

Did you just write a scintillating post that you can’t wait to share? Submit its URL to Google. This should get it indexed faster than waiting for Google to next crawl the web. Instead of hoping that Google eventually stumbles on your page, you’ve done something positive to get that URL promoted.

You’ll need a Google account. Using Chrome is probably the best idea. Once you’re signed in to your account, search with Google for the terms “submit URL to google.” You’ll land on a page called your Search Console. Enter the URL, click the box that says you’re not a robot and you’re done.

Getting your post indexed quicker doesn’t mean you’ll rank higher in search results. That’s an entirely different matter. But submitting a URL to Google is something you should do for all important pages you’ve recently posted.
