In this post, I reveal you the process I have used whenever I have started a new WordPress blog. My blogs have been indexed in less than 6 hours using this process, sometimes as fast as 2 hours.

And we're talking a brand new blog here, that's get indexed by Google in 2-6 hours from the moment I've registered the new domain!

There are no magic tricks in this, no "black hat" tactics - just utilizing free services anyone can use, setting up the website in a way that both the readers and search engines find what they need and the power of WordPress as a platform for perfectly search engine optimized website.

The 11 Steps for Lightning-Speed Indexing by Google

1. Register a domain

  • Use a recommended domain registration service.
  • If you're in for the long-haul, register the domain for 3 years, or whatever the longest registration time is (longer the better)
  • I register my domains at Moniker or DreamHost, where I also host my domains. NameCheap is another great option.
    • Using a separate domain registrar is better, especially if you happen to sell the blog
  • With DreamHost, the newly registered domain is usable in minutes

2. Install WordPress

  • This takes couple of minutes if your host has an easy install of WordPress.
  • WARNING: Do not use default "one-click" install, always go "advanced" or "custom" and modify the options

3. Install WordPress and Use the Perfect Settings

4. Install and Configure the Essential WordPress Plugins

  • WP-DBManager
  • W3 Total Cache
  • WordPress SEO -plugin
    • Configure the plugin
  • Feedburner Feedsmith
    • Configure this at the later step when you add your RSS feed to the Feedburner service
  • Google Analytics for WordPress
  • Google XML Sitemaps
    • Check the settings, add categories or/and tags to be added if you like those to be indexed

5. Add the WordPress automatic ping list to the settings

6. Add the core pages

  • Add these on all blogs / websites: About, Contact and Privacy -pages. If you're doing business, add Disclosure and Terms of Service -pages as well.
    • At minimum have the privacy policy up, but preferably add the About- and Contact- pages as well.
    • I like to have all these on every blog, as they add credibility to the site (in both Google's and your readers point of view).
    • If you're building many (niche) sites, you have use the same code page templates for these.
  • Write these beforehand, and re-use your old ones if needed.
  • About page
  • Contact Us page
    • use the Contact Form 7 -plugin for example
  • Make Privacy Policy page
  • Make Disclosure -page
  • Make Terms of Service page
    • this page could have a comment policy for example

6. Create a category / categories for the blog

  • Category names should be based on market / keyword research

7. Write your first (keyword optimized) UNIQUE post

  • The post should be search engine optimized for your main keyword phrase
  • The post must be UNIQUE! Leave copy-paste, spam-blog style to the losers.
  • Add the post to one (and only one) category
  • Add at least one tag to the post
    • I like to use only 1-3, but you can have more, but keep it under 8
  • Read my on how to write SEO friendly blog posts if you need help
  • Publish the post

8. Add your RSS feed to Feedburner

  • After adding the feed, activate the PingShot service at Feedburner
  • Configure the newly created feed to the Feedburner Feedsmith settings
    • Settings >> Feedburner (plugin)
  • Double-check that the Pingshot is on! (Publicize settings)

9. Create new profile for the new blog at Google Analytics

10. Add your site to the Google Webmaster tools

  • Add the site to Google Webmaster Tools
  • Verify your site ownership in the Webmaster Tools with your Google Analytics account.
  • Submit your XML sitemap to the Google Webmaster tools
    • Submit both the zipped and unzipped versions, if you use the default settings of Google XML Sitemaps plugin:
  • (optional: while at it, add your site to the Yahoo and Bing webmaster tools as well. Add the Yahoo Application ID to the XML Sitemaps -plugin settings)

11. Bookmark your site and your first post with Social Bookmarking tools

  • Bookmark the blog main URL and the post at
  • Digg your first post
  • If you're using Twitter, announce the new site there as well.
  • If you use Buzz in GMail, add your new site to your profile. Post announcement of your new site.

(12. Sit back, get coffee/tea/your favorite beverage, read a good book and check results after couple of hours)


Getting Indexed in Google - Fast

With these steps I am able to get a new WordPress blog indexed by Google in 2-6 hours, every time.. The greatest thing is that there is nothing special or hard at the step above. All this proves the power of WordPress blog as VERY search engine friendly website, especially when supercharged with the great plugins like Google XML Sitemaps and WordPress SEO -plugin.

As a side note, other search engines will follow quite quickly, because of the XML sitemap plugin which notifies the search engines automatically. You can speed up getting indexed by Bing and Yahoo, if you're using their "webmaster services" as well (the optional part there in the step #10).

I believe the most essential steps to get website indexed by Google with this process are the WordPress automatic ping service (with the list from my resources -page), adding the site to Google Webmaster Tools, submitting the XML sitemap to Google AND getting at least one link from the bigger social media sites (those things are crawled fast).

  • No need to submit to search engines
  • No RSS feed service submissions
  • No adding to blog directories or extensive social bookmarking (just 1-2 big ones)

Easy, eh?



  • If you have a blog already but you haven't done the steps above, I highly recommend that you go and do them right now.
  • And if you're starting a new blog, test the process out. It works.
  • Also, if you're having problems getting your site indexed, even if it's older, the same process applies, just skip getting domain, hosting, etc.
  • You can see if you're site is indexed by searching "" on Google (no quotes, and replace with your domain name).

If you followed the instructions on this post, your site will be there in less than 6 hours. After you see your site there, come back here and leave a comment how it turned out...
