If you're building links, you may be wondering how long it will take Google to recognize those links. What many people don't know is that some links may never be found unless you do something about it. Let me share that something with you quickly.
If Google doesn't know that your link is on a page, it won't actually cont for much.
So how do you get your links on those pages recognized?
When submitting content or links to some sites, you won't have to do anything at all. A lot of sites get indexed within a few hours without having to do anything at all to your links. It's a great idea to participate on sites like this that get indexed on their own, because it makes less work for you.
Other sites aren't so easy to get indexed. For example if you're doing a profile backlink, it's not likely to get indexed on it's own. With a link like that, you'll need to take some time to get the link indexed.
Wait a second... indexed?
The easiest way to see if a page is indexed in Google is to take the url of the page your link is one, and put that into the search bar and search for it. If the page is found, and the results return with a direct link to the page, then your link is indeed indexed.
If your link is not found, then something needs to be done with the link to get it indexed.
So how does a page get indexed?
I'm glad you asked! Indexing isn't as easy as it used to be. A few months ago, you could put all of your links into an RSS feed, and submit that feed through RSS submission sites, and ping your links.
Unfortunately this method isn't working as well as it used to.
The best way is hands down to build more backlinks to your backlinks. Yes, you read that right, you need to backlink your backlinks. If this sounds like a lot of work, it really isn't if you're doing it the right way.
Something else you'll want to keep in mind when you're building your backlinks and checking on them to get indexed is that a lot of the free tools that check backlinks aren't very effective.
We all like to take a look at another sites backlinks to see how many it has, and that's one of the main reasons at best you'll only see 10% of your links show up through those tools.
The Yahoo tool has been the most popular for a really long time. I'm not sure why though when most people are worried about ranking in Google, they're checking Yahoo to see how many links Yahoo recognizes! But I myself do this too... I'm still not sure why though.
I've done SEO services for clients, backlinked their backlinks, sent them a report of the links for them to check after I verified that 100% of the links were indexed and they responded asking me why none of the links were showing up in Yahoo.
So keep in mind that these tools aren't very effective, and you wouldn't want them to be! Just imagine how much easier it would be for your competitors to outrank you if they knew every single of the sites linking to you.
