I just did a little experiment, and man o man, did it work better than I had anticipated!
How to Get a Post Listed in Google in Less Than 4 Minutes
Here's what I did.
I wrote the post on this site. Here it is — Need a Local SEO in Livermore?
Then, I went to Blog.com and made a post there, linking to the post above. Here's that post:
I waited. I'm not a patient man, so I gave it a few minutes before I entered http://internet-marketing-muscle.com/4161/need-a-local-seo-in-livermore/ in Google.
Doing this (entering a post's URL in Google's search box) will tell you that Google has spidered your post and has it in their system. It may not get ranked for a time (we'll see–that's a future post!), but the key is to get your pages and posts crawled (or spidered–same thing) and indexed quickly.
I don't know how long it took–I just know it took less than 4 minutes because I made the post at 4:55am this morning, wrote the Blog.com post linking back to it, then posted that. At 4:59am, Need a Local SEO in Livermore? was listed in Google.
It could very well have been less than 3 or 2 or 1 minute.
Bet you'll go out and try Blog.com right away now, huh?
