Let’s get started.
How To Get Google To Index Your New Blog Post Quickly
After you have completed writing a blog post (or if you already have an article published on your blog that you want to get indexed), go to YouTube and find a video related to the topic of your blog. (Any video will work but try to get a video related to your topic).
Copy the embed code of the video under Share option.
Then head over to your blog and paste the code to your blog post where it makes sense. Else you can add the code at the end of your blog post and publish your blog post.
Next install the Google XML Sitemap for Videos. You will find a bunch of Video sitemap generators. Here is the one that worked best for me.
Install the plugin and activate it. (I know the plugin hasn’t been updated for a while now but you can deactivate it after you have indexed your posts on Google)
After that head over to your installed plugins page and click on the settings page of that installed plug in. On the next page click on Generate Video Sitemap option.
Once the plugin has finished generating the video sitemap, ping Google to inform about the updated sitemap. Click on ping Google option and it will do the job for you.
After you have pinged Google you can remove the video from your blog post.
Your part of the job has been completed. Now just wait for few hours and check if Google has indexed your article. This can get your article indexed from few minutes to less than 24 hours.
You can use this method after your have published a new article or updated an existing one to ping Google about the updated content.
This simple method helped me index three articles from my two blogs in less than a day.
I hope this will help you quickly index your new blog and blog posts on Google and show your site on search results.
