    How to Get Google to Index Your Site Once and for All 

    Here’s an idea I tried with Google that worked as far as I could tell… After two weeks of submitting my SEO site via their Webmaster Tools and sending them a good Sitemap.xml (plus the site had the sitemap where it belongs – its a WordPress site), the Google dorkheads were not indexing it – They were downloading the sitemap every couple of hours but telling me they had indexed something ridiculous like ten pages… Out of over a thousand.

    Here’s the bright idea: I noticed back in March that when you create and run an ad on AdWords, you get a visit by the Googlebots… They scan you, they score you and they do other unspeakable things. Here’s a screen capture of the Googlebots as they were scanning my site:

    So I took a CSV file with a list of all my URLs and smacked it into the Adwords Editor, created a new campaign with ridiculously low CPCs and set it to run – Mind you I had to chop up the list since it seems I have some serious limits on my AdWords account, so I put about half the list into it… A few MINUTES later Google reported 747 URLs indexed! Coincidence? You try it and tell me.

      Heh now that you mention it this make sense. I had a few landing pages get indexed and I couldn’t figure out why. I have a domain I use a lot for PPV traffic and so I just will be like mikemaindomain.com/ppv1 and not worry about editing robots.txt since there will be no actual web links to the product. However a few of these got indexed and couldn’t figure out how. However I know I was running some adwords tests on them at some point.

      GREAT TIP though. Thanks for sharing!

    Backlinks inside PDF PPT etc? 

    I’m wondering weather backlinks inside PDF or PPT files might be easier to disseminate and how they affect ranking… Hmm… Interesting idea.

    New Site: Countdown Initiated 

    I decided to give that low-hanging-fruit I mentioned a while back a GO. What the heck, lets go for it. Its an SEO job, essentially. If it works out, it will be stellar – if it bombs, I hope it doesn’t splatter.

    I had four 2Ghz cores crunching the data for the site for about 48 hs during the weekend… My back-of the-envelope calculations say that it should take about 15 hours to shuttle the content to the site – even with the 4x bigger pipe I asked for. I have no clue how long it will take to get everything online and accessible – there’s a couple of things I still need to figure out how I’m going to pull them off.

    Ideally, shortly afterwards this scene should unfold in the market space I’m entering:

    However, for visitors, the site should look and feel like this:

    I’m analyzing the HTML of a site out there.. They have a hidden form, its a Form tag that contains links with likely SEO descriptions. Seems like a “link exchange” or link juice passing. Don’t really know, but looks very odd.
