How to Get Your Backlinks Indexed in Google part 1
Getting your backlinks indexed by Google is often overlooked when it comes to backlinking methods. I remember the first time I tried to employ a backlinking campaign, I didn’t even know indexing was a thing that I was suppose to do. Once I realized that Google wasn’t going to instantly find and index my backlinks, I went searching to figure out what to do. To my disappointment, I had a difficult time finding any information about this. This is what I would like to talk about in this 2 part article, as well as how to get your backlinks indexed in Google and if you should do it in the first place.
How to Get Your Backlinks Indexed in Google
This is a recipe that requires 3 ingredients:
1. Unique Content – If you simply copy an article, Google will not see it as a valuable page that it should put in its database. Google ignored duplicate content which is why spun, rewritten or completely unique content is used for the creation of backlinks. How well should I spin the content? You can find that information on a previous post about article spinning here and here. It will depend on which tier you are using the backlinks for and
2. Quality Content – A random and poorly spun article is not enough to get your backlink indexed by Google. This is not always required, but it is helpful to use high quality content. In other words, readable and mistake free wordage. If Google comes across a jumbles mess of an article, it is more likely to mark it as poor content and not add it to it’s index. Well written content also adds to the power of the backlink, but that is for another topic. In general you will want to use the best content that you can on your 1st tier of links, and use progressively lesser quality content as you go down in each tier. Of course, you will have to use your own discretion as to what “high quality” and “low quality” content is based on your keyword difficulty and SEO strategy.
3. Backlinks – Google also needs a way to find your newly created backlinks. This is 1 of the 2 reasons we send backlinks to the backlinks. Doing this serves 2 purposes:
1. It provides Google with more ways to find your tier 1 backlinks, The Google spiders can come across one of the 100 tier 3 backlinks which point to a particular tier 1 link and crawl it’s way up to the link.
2. The 2nd reason we backlink our backlinks is to show Google that this link is important If Google sees that there are many links pointing to a tier 1 backlink, it will be more likely to include it in it’s index, which in turn accomplishes your goal of creating quality backlinks that will improve the rankings of your money site.
That wraps up part 1 of how to get your backlinks indexed in Google. We will discuss some other ways to accomplish this and improve your index rate in part 2.
