No submissions please
Q: How often should you submit your website to Google? How long does it typically take for Google to index your site after you submit? Is there any way to reduce the time?
A: That’s easy: never. There’s no need for it. If other sites link to your site, then Googlebot will find you on its own. If no one links to you, then that’s what you need to work on – not on submitting. Furthermore, since a large chunk of the sites that submit themselves are spam or porn, your own site could be flagged as probable spam or porn if you submit. Once you have links pointing to your site, the process of getting into Google can take as little as a few days, or as long as several months. The higher the quantity and quality (i.e. PageRank) of those links, the more likely Google will index you quickly. And definitely don’t resubmit your site once youâ??re already in Google. Google will pick up your changes.
From the fundamentals of link building to the nuances of natural linking patterns, virality, and authority.
