While you cannot forcibly improve indexing and Google’s crawl rate, there are some things you can do to get Google to visit your site more often. Before you look at the steps I have outlined below, make sure your site is actually indexed by Google. If not, you’ll need to visit Google and add it.
The problem is that getting Google to index your site correctly and efficiently is not a simple task. Below you’ll find 4 tips that can help you with that.
1. Let Google Know You Exist
Google has a submission form that you can use to inform it about your new site. Don’t!
The best way to get Google to discover and index your site is to get a backlink from a reputable website. This is more efficient than the tool because any spammer can use the tool, and they do!

2. Optimize on-site factors
You need to make sure that your on-site factors are optimized if you want Google to crawl your site correctly and to index all your pages and posts. This includes:
– Correct HTML code
– Correct permalink structure
– Efficient internal linking
3. More authority links.
Good search rankings and organic traffic comes from two main factors: quality content and quality links. Lots of quality content and lots of quality links.
Focus on getting links from related websites, and preferably from authoritative ones. A link from an authoritative website inside your niche is worth 1000 non-relevant links from smaller sites.
4. Monitor your rankings
You can’t improve what you can’t measure. If you want to improve your indexing and search rankings over time, you need to measure your performance over time. You could do it manually, but it would very time consuming.
A better way to do it is to use a tool and automate the process.
