Get New Pages Indexed on Google Faster Via Social Media

I was reworking a page for a client who wanted to rank higher for a certain keyword phrase.

I rewrote the page, embedding the phrase in the text and tags, artfully, if I say so myself.

It's Easy to Get New Pages Indexed on Google

Once the page was republished, I went to Google Console and requested Google crawl the page. Every few days I would check to see if Google had visited the new page yet. I did this by checking the cached URL. (You don’t want to know.)

It had not been visited. So then I remembered another way to get Google to visit a page. I simply posted its link on my business Facebook and Twitter pages.

Within a day it was visited and he was showing up in the #2 position for a local search using the targeted phrase.

This was a good reminder to me that sometimes it’s the easiest steps that get things going with SEO.

      You’re welcome, Bret. BTW Our friend this morning who was complaining about Google not serving his pages … well I checked and his page isn’t indexed. Hopefully, he’ll let me into the backend to see if he has a “no follow” on his pages … or maybe something else is wrong.
