I received a lot of emails from readers asking how to get their website listed with Google. There are a few ways to do this. The easiest way is to use a FREE submission website to submit your site to Google and other search engines.
One website that you can use is “Submit Express.” Here’s the direct link to the submission page: http://www.submitexpress.com/free-submission.html
The next thing you should do is sign up with Google Webmaster Tools. It’s pretty simple to use, so you shouldn’t have any problems. You just have to add and verify your website, and you can verify your website easily. Google will prompt you to log-in to your hosting account to verify that you own the domain name that you’re trying to submit.
Once your site is verified, you can set your territory (United States, United Kingdom, etc.) and submit a sitemap to Google.
If you used the recommended sitemap plugin in our book, then you should already have a site map. The URL for your site map should look similar to this URL: http://read2learn.net/sitemap.xml
As you can see, you just simply add the extension “/sitemap.xml” at the end of your websites URL.
If you’re not sure if you have a sitemap or not, you can generate a sitemap for free at: http://www.xml-sitemaps.com. This website will provide you with your sitemap URL, and you can submit that URL to Google Webmaster Tools.
Look under the Optimization section, and that’s where you can submit your sitemap. Just look through all of the settings, and you should be fine. If you need additional help, Google has plenty of videos up on YouTube.
Some of our readers didn’t realize that we have a book that will help you rank your website on Google. The book is called “SEO for WordPress.” S.E.O. stands for “search engine optimization.” That simply means that you need to optimize your website so that search engines can understand what your website is about.
Our book is actually a beginners guide that anybody can understand and follow. The book covers all the basics, and it’s a good starting point. The kindle book also comes with a link to download the PDF. You can also invest $3 more and receive the paperback version of the book in the mail.
The book is quick read, and it’s easy to understand. You can find the book here on Amazon: SEO For WordPress Book
