Get Indexed by Major Search Engines




So you have submitted your website, but how do you know if you are indexed in the major search engines?

Usually if you put a genuine effort toward building your website, this is rarely going to be a problem for you. However, it does happen. Some of the most common reasons that websites are not indexed in the major search engines are as follows:


It simply takes time!

Remember that success on the Internet takes time (a lot of it) along with patience, persistence and determination. Just give it a couple months (lol).


Duplicate Content

If you simply copied gobs of content from elsewhere and posted it on your webpages, you will be ignored by the major search engines. They hate lazy bums!

Use Copyscape to ensure your webpages do not carry duplicate content.


No Incoming Links

This is a big one with Ask.com. Ask finds websites strictly from backlinks. Sometimes this can take months or even a year or so in some instances. Get started with your link building campaign immediately to get listed in Ask.


Frames & Flash Technology

Sometimes search engines donít like frames on your website. Excessive use of flash technology also causes the engines to ignore you.

Many websites have flash on their intro/home page. Many only have flash on their home page. Search engine robots ignore the language flash is written in.


Bad Hosting

Many say all web hosts are the same and who you go with doesnít matter. This is not true. If your host is not reliable and keeps going down, you can bet that the engines will not list you. Who wants to recommend websites that are down half the time?


PhP Technology/Dynamic Page Creation -> Extras in the URL

This is a common problem with eCommerce websites. A lot of times with large product databases webmasters prefer technology that creates dynamic webpages based on a userís search.

The problem with this is that dynamic pages do not have a static/stable URL. Further, their URL contains all kinds of extra characters in a format search engines donít like too much.

There are a couple solutions. One is to move to a static webpage design. The other is to search for PhP forums online (ZenCart is a good one) and read how to fix this problem. People have figured out how to tackle this issue.


Website Not Search Engine Friendly

This is a rare one but it still happens! Go back and optimize your webpages if you havenít yet. Do the best you can and leave it up to the engines to find you.

There are tools available that evaluate your webpages for search optimization and tell you what to do (what changes to make) to further optimize each webpage. SBI is one of the best ones at this with their automated behind the scenes Analyze It! function.


There can be many other reasons, some known and some unknown. After some time if you are still not listed, contact the search engines individually and ask them why. Then ask them what you can do to get listed asap.

So continue to work on your website, give it a few months and then perform searches again to see if your site has been indexed in the major search engines.

I said major, so focus on the big 3. There is no need to loose sleep over the other little ones. The easiest way to search is to go to each search engine (Google, Yahoo and MSN Live) and type in your URL address in the search field.

So for this website I would type in www.easyextramoneyonline.com. If your site has been indexed by the search engines, your listing will appear as no.1 on the results page.

Remember, it takes time; sometimes a lot of it. So just be patient and check every couple months. Focus on building good website content in the mean time.
