Affiliate Marketing For Beginners 62 – Clickbank : how to get your website indexed

September 30, 2019


..a question many affiliates ask is how to
get the search engines crawling your website in the first place and this
listen we look at how to get your website indexed search engine spiders
are just basically tireless wonders they wander around the internet following
links and seeing what they discover therefore the most straightforward way
to get your site indexed is to get a link from another site there are a
couple of caveats here the site that links to you has to be indexed by the
search engines itself and the link can’t have a nofollow tag on it if you want to
get into google letters one good way to get the search engines crawling your
site is to set up a Twitter profile the search engines love Twitter and the
spiders spend a lot of time hanging around there once you’ve set up your
profile try to find some active members of the Twitter community to follow which
is basically like adding yourself to their friends list this provides a link
back to your Twitter profile and allows the search engine spiders to start
crawling your Twitter profile now just post a link to your new site and you
should see little search engine BOTS footprints all through your stats in no
time many of the search engines have submit your site pages where you can
enter your site’s URL and some other information as a suggestion that they
include in their index although it’s not a guarantee that they will index it this
used to be a good way of getting your site indexed back in the day but these
days all the major search engines find your site by the link method we talked
about before so there’s not really much point a quick trick to check if your
website has been indexed is to go to Google and into this into the search box
Google will return all the results they have for your website the same trick
applies for Yahoo and MSN you can also access the same information and a bunch
of other stuff by signing up for Google’s webmaster tools once you verify
your site by adding a snippet of code to your HTML or uploading a file you’ll see
an option to see which pages have been indexed by Google this is pretty much
the same as doing that site your domain.com
Trek but Google can also tell you if they’re having difficulty crawling any
of your pages and the nature of the difficulty this can be pretty handy for
checking the overall health of your site structure getting the search engines to
visit your site is one thing but getting them to visit and index all the pages on
your website is a different matter when you check how many pages of your site
are indexed you may notice that some of them are missing a search engine spider
may visit your site but failed index some of your pages for a number of
reasons that ran out of steam if you don’t have many links to your site just
yet and consequently little PageRank you might find the search engine spiders not
bothering to dig too deeply into your site you’re using duplicate content if
the search engine thinks that the content on your page is pretty much the
same content on another page this could be on your website or on a completely
different website then it probably won’t show up in their listings you could have
badly organized link structures remember that search engines find pages on your
site by following links a page on your site with more links to it is going to
be easier to find than a page with only one link to it
buried in the deep recesses of your site if a page is important make sure it’s
easily accessible here’s some suggestions use unique
content get more links to your site get links to your internal pages make sure
all of your content is at least 25% different to other content on the
internet and preferably at least 50% different this is particularly true if
you’re using PLR content on your site don’t be lazy just reworded get more
links to your site the more good links you have to your site the more energy
the search engine spiders will have to explore your pages you can tell how
strong your links are by looking at your page rank the higher your page rank the
more chance that the spiders will go deeper into your site get links to your
internal pages rather than just having every link pointing at your homepage
try getting links that point to your internal pages as well this is called
deep linking and it’s very useful strategy thinking of it this way
instead of conducting an all-out assault on your front door and only getting as
far as your living room deep linking means the spiders will go and try the
back door the laundry window that ranch slider they’ll see a lot more of your
house as a result PageRank sculpting is where you design your site so that as
much PageRank flows to your important pages as possible this means that these
pages are more likely to appear in the search engines it sounds like a complex
and painful procedure but once you get past the fancy words it’s really just
what we are talking about before making sure that your important pages are well
linked and easily accessible and that the spiders have enough energy to reach
your reported pages here’s an example of a site that hasn’t been PageRank
sculpted it has a lot of links arriving at its home page and then from the home
page you can access the usual range of pages a links page a privacy policy page
a Contact Us page a reviews page and an articles page from the articles page
there are link to a bunch of articles this is the main content of the site the
owner of the site expects that most of his traffic will arrive through these
articles because they’ve been optimized for very popular keywords as you can see
from the darkness of the shading these articles aren’t going to get much
PageRank flowing through to them the PageRank is being split between the
links at the top but because the articles page only gets one fifth of the
available PageRank each of its children the articles only receive one tenth of
one fifth chances are until the website owner starts getting a lot of good links
and a lot of PageRank to his home page some of his articles might not be
indexed because there’s simply not enough PageRank flowing through to them
does the website owner really need all that PageRank to go to his privacy
policy and contact us page well not really so a good idea is to either
remove links to these pages from his main home page or use nofollow and as
links nofollow tells the search engines not to bother exploring through this
link and means they can direct their attention to more important pages but
blocking off these three unimportant pages the website owner can increase the
amount of PageRank flowing to us more important pages the articles page and
the reviews page of course of course you probably want these pages indexed
eventually so it’s a good idea to link to them from one of your less important
pages it’s just a way of telling the spiders which pages to pay attention to
first now we should note here Google claims that PageRank sculpting doesn’t
work and their engine does not direct PageRank evenly across all the links on
a page however we’ve run tests which show that this is in fact the case so
it’s better to play safe than sorry and apply this trick anyway to add even more
punch to the strategy the website owner should work on getting links to his
articles pages as well as his home page this benefits the article page itself as
well as any other pages the article might link to you can see here that the
PageRank spreads out through all pages the article links to increasing the
chance of those articles being indexed sitemaps help search engine spiders find
pages on your website by listing every single page that you have
xml sitemaps can also include information like the importance of the
page that can help spiders know which pages they should pay most attention to
if you’re having difficulty getting all your pages indexed it might be worth
creating a sitemap and time for today’s lesson summary in this lesson we’ve
looked at how to get your page indexed including getting a link to your website
