Writing a post is a very hard work regarding your blog’s contents. If a search engine doesn’t crawl your posts and index them, all your hard work will go in vain.

In this post I will show you how to crawl and submit to index your posts on Google Search Console.
I have already shown how to write and SEO FRIENDLY POST USING YOAST SEO PLUGIN. So it’s the right time to tell you guys about crawling and indexing.
Crawl and Submit to Index Blog Posts on Google Search Console
When google or any other search engine visits your website/blog for tracking purposes, it is crawling . Google search console aka Webmaster tool does that for you.
After crawling google will put your post on google search, that’s indexing.
Now you know what crawling is, Let’s go by the steps. If you haven’t added your website to Google search console read : Add Website To Search Console.
STEP 1 :
Click on your added website from search console home.
STEP 2 :
Now, click on Fetch as Google , and you’ll get the option to add a Link of your blog post.
STEP 3 :
Now add your link into the box . For example, http://www.bloggertracks.com/add-website-google-search-console/ is a link of one of my posts. If I want google search console to crawl to it, I’ll simply write add-website-google-search-console/ in the box and click on FETCH. If you want google to render your post for you, click on FETCH AND RENDER.
STEP 4 :
Click on Submit to Index. A pop up box will appear where you’ll have to choose some criteria.
STEP 5 :
Click on I’m not a robot and select your crawling type. If your post has direct links that you want to crawl select the 2nd option but it’s limited to 10 posts a month. So I prefer selecting the 1st one. It won’t hamper your search ranks. Now click go and you’re done with crawling and submitting your blog post.
