Blog Indexing Made Easy
Author Todd Garland
Here is an easy and absolutely free trick you can use to get your new blog indexed by Yahoo and MSN.
Believe it or not, but these two search engine behemoths (and not just them) will almost instantly (sometimes within 48 hours or less) index your blog the second one of your visitors includes your blog RSS feed in their search engine specific account.
For instance, Yahoo will spider your RSS feed and blog when a visitor of yours will include your feed into their personal Yahoo account. Once that happens, Yahoo will do this within 48 hours – an amazingly short time for such a fit, wouldn’t you agree?
To top it off, this process doesn’t cost you a penny.
You can further speed up the process by subscribing to your own feed in your My Yahoo! Account.
Before you do it, make sure you have 3 things:
#1. an account with Yahoo! (duh…),
#2. your RSS feed URL (it will look something like this http://orangecountycustomwebsitedesign.com/feed/,
#3. and a good amount of posts in your blog (after all, you do not want anybody to come to an empty blog).
Once you are ready, log into your account and immediately after you are logged in, look for an ‘Add Content’ button.
On the next page you will see a search box, to the right of which there will be a link titled ‘Add RSS by URL’. I am sure you know what to do from here.
As a final step though, make sure your feed was added correctly. You can do so by going to the front page of your account; your feed should be listed closer to the bottom of the page.
Wasn’t this easy?
Now, you can do the same with MSN. The steps you will take will be almost identical to those above, so I won’t bore you with repetition.
That’s all there is to it!
Now every time you create a new blog, make sure you add the feed to both your Yahoo and MSN accounts for quick and painless, and best of all, free indexing.
