So, you’ve developed an amazing site. You’ve put together some seriously valuable content, iterated on the design, and gathered a ton of feedback. Now, you’re finally feeling ready to share it with the world.
And as soon as you publish your new site for the world to see, all of your content will immediately start showing up in Google, right?
Well, maybe. It takes a little more than just hitting the publish button. To get your site listed on search results, Google needs to “crawl” and “index” your content. This happens automatically over periods of days or weeks, but if you’re a site owner, you can manually submit your site to Google and accelerate this process.
Do you need to submit a website to Google?
Before we get started, I am just going to emphasize that submitting your website to Google is not something you have to do.
Google finds sites and indexes content using web crawlers. These bots explore the internet, regularly checking sites’ content, as well as finding new websites. The majority of websites are found by bots and haven’t been manually listed with Google.
However, you may wish to submit your website to Google if…
- You are launching a new site
- Your site hasn’t been indexed on Google yet (we will discuss how to find this out next)
- You add new content to a particular page and want it immediately indexed.
By submitting your site to Google, you are ensuring that Google is aware of your site’s presence, which can help you rank in Google more quickly.
