How To Submit Your URL To Google Manually
Many people like to start new businesses, blogs, and other entrepreneurial adventures at the top of the year. I myself am one who is big on “fresh starts” as well. So if you are going to be creating a new blog for business or for fun this year, I want to show you how to quickly add your site’s url to Google and get it indexed quickly.
There are a couple of ways that you can go about doing this easily and properly – which I’m going to quickly cover in a mini article series. There is a method to my madness, so here it goes:)
Submit Your URL To Google Manually
When you submit your url to Google manually, you are submitting your web address to Google so that their “spiders” can come take a look at your site, crawl some or all of your pages, and then count the site as one of the millions of websites on the internet.
If your site is not indexed by Google or any other search engine (Yahoo, Bing), then people will only be able to gain access to your website if they have your direct address. They will not be able to find you during a basic search engine search and that would be disastrous for your business. Organic traffic (free traffic) is the best!
The pros about manual submission is that it is a direct path into the index. No middle men. No freebie submission service doing it for you. You are in control. The cons about manual submission is that you really have no control over how long it will take Google to crawl and index your website. This is a problem for some people – but it really wasn’t for me. I was never in a rush to get indexed, because I was busy building my content, products, etc. By the time I was ready for a little free traffic, my sites were indexed.
Submitting your URL to Google is fast and easy…
1. Go to: http://www.google.com/addurl/ (at Google’s Webmaster Tools)
2. Here you will add your full url address [http://LisaAngelettie.com] including the prefix (http://)
3. Make sure you add the top page of your site (the home page), not another page on the site.
4. Make sure that you are submitting the actual url of the website, not a domain name that you are using for forwarding.
5. There is a comment section where you can submit keywords related to your website. Google says that this doesn’t make a difference in your submission approval, but I think it’s a good idea to add a few keywords here. For example, if I were submitting my site, I would add “article marketing” in the comment section.
6. It’s optional, but I think Google gives a slight preference to human submitted sites – so fill out the captcha information before you click the ADD URL button. There are software bots that can submit your site for you, so they want to differentiate whether your submission was made by a human or a bot.
7. That’s it! After you’ve submitted your url to Google, you just have to periodically do a Google search for your site and see if it’s listed. Until such time – work on your articles – especially for your site. Google loves websites with content and it’s my experience that they get indexed a little faster:)

Hi Lisa, thanks for the tips.I think I have never submitted any URLs to Google or any other search engine manually.My posts have always been indexed thanks to other “methods” and reasonably quickly as well.My favorite way of getting a new blog post indexed fast is to link to it from Xomba.com and it usually takes under 1 hour for the post to appear in Google.

What do you say to those that say this is not a help..not even a little….including Google themselves I might add.
Lisa Angelettie says
Not sure what you mean Dennis. I have been submitting sites for years and have had no problems. Perhaps the next article will clarify things for you.

Thanks, but can I add url to google without login to webmasters tools?
Lisa Angelettie says
I’m pretty sure that you can’t now that Google wants everyone to create a “Google account” — but you can always create a backlink to your site via a high ranking site and let Google find and crawl your website that way.

Hi Lisa Angelettie…
Awesome post about url submitting manually.Thanks for usefull information…
Nice info to send new website for crawling in Google.
Good post. In addition to your suggestion, I also link my new blog to an existing blog that has been already indexed so that when google spider crawls the old blog, it will see a link to the new one and index it. This method in my own opinion works faster.
Another method I normally use is to ping the post in the new blog via http://www.pingoat.com or http://www.pingomatic.com. Pinging is just like a bait to lure googlebot to visit your site for fresh food…lol.
Just copy your post url and visit any of the above ping site and paste in the box, tick all the box and hit the ping. This will broadcast your blog to a lot of search engine and lure Google’s spider to the site. The fact is, ping your blog post anytime you publish it.
Thanks…..you are doing great here.
