If you find yourself adding pages to a website that hasn’t been updated for a long time you will find out that Google will not index it right away. Why? Google starts to index the page right away, then it will return in a few days to see if any changes have been made. If none has been made it may return in a week, and if still no changes were made it may return in a month to see if changes were made and so on.
So, you may have added some articles to your website that you want Google to index on your site first before publishing them so that if someone were to do a search and your article pops up you would like it to be your website at the top of the list instead of the article directory that it was found on. So for sound SEO practice it is generally a good idea to have your article indexed on your web site before submitting it to article directories.
Okay, so you figure that you will just create a sitemap and resubmit it to webmaster central through your Google control panel, right? Google may still take a little time before indexing your site and if you would like to get it indexed sooner you can do so by applying links from an outside website source that gets indexed frequently that point to the new pages on your website.
For example I would like to get a web site of Attorneys in Upper Michigan new pages indexed by Google and this site has not been updated in a LONG time so the Google ‘spider’ does not visit it very frequent.
This blog which is indexed and visited by Google’s ‘spider’ more often can be used to link to Upper Michigan Law’s website. Once google’s spider visits my blog they will follow the links on this page to the new pages on their website and start indexing them for a quicker index.
Here are the links I want Google’s spider to follow.

These are the articles I want Google to visit and index before I start publishing them on the internet so once I read the webs stats and see they were successfully indexed by Google I can start promoting them. You can also type in site:http://uppermichiganlaw.com to see what pages were indexed by Google as well.
So there you have it, if you have any questions on website promotion or any other details just let me know.
