    How long for Google to index new site?

    I just set up a new domain, the site has been up for about 2 days with 4 pages of text content, images to come later. Google hasn't visited it yet, how do I get Google to index it?

    My other site Google indexes it all the time, almost every day, especially after I make changes to it.

    Submit your Web site to Google.
    It will start visiting within 2-3 weeks.
    Indexing of results and assign of PR value will take 2 to 3 to 5 or 6+ months.

    Thing vary, and depends on your Web site.

    Present days, MSN is more active in crawl than the Google.
    Hence, I suggest you, submit to MSN and other many many engines and directories also.

    Thanks anshul

    I just submitted my site to Google, Yahoo and MSN. Do you have a list of others plus the directories?

    I will also do a Google search. Thanks

    Netscape

    Submit to as many as possible.

    Like AltaVista, HotBot, AlltheWeb, Excite, Lycos, DMOZ ODP (if it accept) and all the small and big directories that allow you to submit.

    Many Web masters and Web sites run their directories and links farm. Find them.

    Go for paid submission services, if you think, it's for you.

    Good luck

    In my opinion, paid submission is a waste of money. Places that do that will take your money alright, but they cannot guarantee that you will be listed in whichever search engine or directory they've submitted to. They also can't guarantee what kind of PR you will have if you do get listed. I would run far, far away from anyone who would make claims to that effect.

    The best thing you can do, and again this is my opinion, is to include a link to your site in forums such as this. The search engines will find you through that, it's totally free, and you'll get indexed in the search engines just about as quickly that way.

    My page http://www.felgall.com/link1b.htm has links to the top 50 or so search engines and directories pages where you can add your site.

    Gary (graft-creative) got his site indexed within 3 days by Google.

    Personally, I'd just link to it from somewhere where you know is being crawled (eg. a site review topic here), and just let search engines find it that way. 0 effort required

    I'm rather shocked by all this. Every web site I have ever done has shown up on Google in about two days. All of them. There could have been some that took longer because I didn't time it but what's the problem?

    The home page and perhaps two or three other pages may have showed up in the major search engines in a matter of a few days. As a matter of fact, one of my sites was in Google in about a week's time. However, it took far longer than that to get the whole site indexed, and even longer than that before any of the pages had any kind of page rank. I think that probably happens with most sites.

    Google omits although MSN not

    I set up my site more than a month ago. MSN has since found it but Google seems to ignore it. I have submitted it to Google. I have the same problem as Len Whistler. The site is www.outsourcingsw.com . Is it doing something it should not?

    I wonder if this line: <!-- tpl:insert page="/Aaba.htpl" --> before the doctype Google reject it.

    I'm not getting expected results for my Web site: http://www.guideseeq.com/

    Particularly my profile: http://www.guideseeq.com/portfolio_profile.htm
    (it should be PR 4 or 5).

    MSN is good, but Google is wild and weird, when it goes opposite to a Web site.

    sad:

    Why *should* it be PR 4 or 5? Your homepage is PR3, there are no inbound links pointing at your portfolio_profile.htm page apart from the ones on the homepage, and there are an awful lot of other links on the homepage that you are spreading your PR about. PR 0, under the circumstances, seems fairly logical.

    Comments on "/Aaba.htpl" in www.outsourcingsw.com

    drhowarddrfine, thank you for the suggestion about tpl:insert page="/Aaba.htpl". Unfortunately, I built all of www.outsourcingsw.com site's pages using the same heading. To ensure this, first I did the heading and then "exported" it to the site's pages. The heading is the part that contains "/Aaba.htpl". Maybe I'll try re-doing the site with another tool (I did it with IBM's WebSphere Studio Application Developer).
