How to Get Your Backlinks Indexed in Google part 2
In part 1 of this 2 part series, we learned that you should use unique content if you want Google to include your created backlinks in its index. It also helps to add backlinks to those backlinks and keep the quality of your content as good as you can. Following these 3 steps is normally enough to do the trick, but we can go further and that is what this article will be about.
First, you should understand what index rate you should expect. You will never see a 100% index rate. If you keep your 1st tier of links high in quality, you should be pleased with a 80-90% index rate. If you use poorly spun content, expect to see 50-75% of your backlinks indexed. It doesn’t matter what you do, it is just unrealistic to expect all of your backlinks to find their way in to Google’s index. As you go down in tier, you should expect a lesser amount of your backlinks to be included in Googles index. This is partly because we are using lower quality content and partly because we are creating a higher amount of backlinks with the same spun articles.
What else can I do?
You can Ping your backlinks.
Pinging your backlinks is a way to tell Google that there have been changes to a page and it should be checked out. Google will send over their spiders to check the page out and hopefully index your newly created links. You can use a site like linklicious to ping your links for free (or check out their paid versions for better indexing rates).
One warning about this: Pinging your links can be counter productive. It will increase the amount of backlinks that Google finds and make it happen sooner, but it can also create an unnatural looking backlink rate. It is often better to avoid pinging the first tier of backlinks so your index rate looks more realistic. It is a better idea to ping your 2nd and 3rd tier backlinks to avoid any penalties to your money site.
Another way to get your backlinks indexed is to add them to a site or web 2.0 property that Google already likes. To do this, you will need to add some quality unique content to a site/web 2.0 page. Start with a few articles and then add 1 article per week so Google knows to check the site often. Once you get it going, you can start to add your backlinks to it from time to time. Add 20 links and ping the site. Google will send the spiders and index the backlinks. Once this happens, you can rotate in new backlinks on to the site and repeat the process. The bad part about this is that this is a slow process. You can’t add 15,000 links like you can with linklicious. For that reason, it is better to use this strategy for your tier 1 links. You can also reserve this method for the links that Google skips. Give the backlinks some time. Collect the backlins that are not indexed and post them on you indexing site.
A 3rd way to index your backlinks is to re-backlink them. If they don’t make it the first round, send some more spun backlinks to those links. You might just want to throw the tier 2 and tier 3 links away, but if you have any high quality links that were not indexed (or if you paid a lot for the backlinks), I would take the extra time and send some more backlinks their way.
If done right, you should expect to have 90% of your tier 1 backlinks indexed, 75% of your tier 2 backlinks indexed and 50% of your tier 3 backlinks indexed. If they are not indexed in Google, they won’t count for anything so overlooking this part will only result in wasted effort during your backlinking campaigns.
