Use RSS to Get Your Sites Indexed Overnight
As you may know, Google has it's very own blogging service called Blogger.com. If you start a blog with them, you'll have your own page on the blogspot.com domain which is currently ranked number 32 of the most visited domains on the planet according to Alexa. What does this mean to you? If your pages are being linked to by a site with that high of a ranking, it will increase your sites ranking. But that's merely a side benefit of using this method. The real benefit of following this guideline is having your pages indexed nearly overnight.
You're going to end up using two services, Blogger.com and Yahoo.com. You won't have to limit it to just Yahoo, but we'll start there. When you have a blog on Blogger.com you are provided with an RSS feed of the content that you post. By adding the RSS URL to your free "My Yahoo" page, you force Yahoo and Google to talk to one another and what their talking about will be your content. You essentially make it seem to both of the search engines that there is something worth looking at and therefore they send their spiders to crawl your blog. Now when the spiders crawl your blog they'll also crawl any other link that you have posted. If you update your blog on a semi regular basis and include any new links to pages you have created or affiliate programs you've joined, those pages or links will get indexed, and often overnight.
So how do you go about accomplishing all of this? It's really not all that difficult. Start out by getting your blog setup and begin familiarizing yourself with how to post to and change the look and content of your blog. If you don't know HTML that's OK, there are plenty help files that show you exactly what to do. When you start your blog, and when you sign up for new programs try to use the same unique identifying name. For example, mine is TheBestWaytoCash. I can shorten it to BestWaytoCash or TheBestWay or just BestWay depending on how many characters the site allows you to use. Later, you can do a search for your unique name to see if your sites have been indexed.
After you have your blog set up, you'll want to add the RSS feed to an RSS reader. We'll start out with your "My Yahoo" page. If you don't have one yet, get one right away. It's free and fun to have anyway. On your "My Yahoo" page locate a link that says "Add Content" and click it. The next page will have a large "Find Content" field. Just to the right of the empty field you'll find a link in small text that says "Add RSS by URL", click there. On this page you'll see a blank field with an "Add" button next to it. Type your RSS URL in and click "Add". Try it with mine to see how it works. My RSS feed is (http://thebestwaytocash.blogspot.com/atom.xml). Leave out the (). You'll notice that the only difference between your regular URL and your RSS URL is the /atom.xml on the end. That's because /atom.xml is one of the types of RSS feeds currently being used. I'll have more on the various types of RSS feeds in future articles.
From this point on, you should try to post new content to your blog as often as you can. Readers tend to like shorter more frequent articles rather than longer less frequent ones. You will end up getting some readers if you have content worth looking at. In my next article, I'll show you how to increase your page rank and make your indexed links mover toward the top of the search engine results.
Till next time, have a great day and good luck.
