The key to getting strong search engine rankings is to first get your website indexed. In the old days of SEO the way to get your site indexed was to submit it to a few website directories. But that method is pretty much dead today – for a couple of reasons.

The first reason is that Google has made algorithm changes that have killed off a lot of website directories as spam sites. You don’t want to be associated with them.

The other reason website directories are dead is because of the rise of social media.

What hasn’t changed is the need for inbound links. Your site will never get indexed by any search engine unless there are inbound links that will allow the search engines to find it. The search bots crawl through the links to find new pages to index. No inbound links = no indexed web pages.

So how do you make that happen fast?

After you build your website, you should share your pages on the social networking sites you are a member of. I’d focus first and foremost on Google+, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest if your web pages have images (and they should).

Most of the time, if you save your web pages on Google+, then you’ll get ranked quickly. But I wouldn’t just do it in succession. I’d save one page per day on each social network. You should have your website indexed in less than a week if you don’t have any crawl issues.
