Getting Into Google Through Their Open Back Door
By Gary Harvey,
Word has it that it's better to be found by Google than to directly submit your
pages. Spidered pages apparently rank higher, so the Google ranking algorithm is
set to pay more attention if you get a highly-ranked site to link to you.
But if you don't know anyone in that category, let AllTheWeb.com rescue you!
In this link, just replace my website address (EPROFITNEWS.COM) with yours:
Copy this new URL and enter it into Google, here:
Repeat this for all your websites.
Better still, add these AllTheWeb URLs to one of your pages that is regularly
crawled by Google.
That's it, my friend.
"BUT I DON'T OWN A WEBSITE"
If you don't have a site that is regularly crawled by Google, why not make a
post to one of the forums and use this URL in your signature?
"HOW CAN I CONFIRM THAT THE FORUM IS CRAWLED BY GOOGLE?"
Easily, my friend. Here's what I did.
- Go to Google, http://google.com
- Type in the domain of the forum and the name John (because there's sure to be
a post from someone called Gary in any self-respecting forum, right?)
Type in "ablake.net gary" (without the quotes).
- Bingo. Mr. Google shows me a current page at the Anthony Blake forum, which
proves that their spiders regularly crawl this site.
So post your URL there and it won't be long and you'll be found by Google.
"NEXT VERSE, SAME AS THE FIRST"
Since that wasn't too hard, why not do it with other spidering search engines?
http://www.metacrawler.com is one. It
searches Google, FAST, Ask Jeeves, Inktomi, About, Looksmart, FindWhat,
"WHERE'S THE FRONT DOOR ANYWAY?"
If you're wondering where you can enter the AllTheWeb process through their
front door, just go to
And in the panel marked "Enter your URL here", type in your website's URL.
Or several URLs if you wish to see a comparison of your site and up to three
One of the engines that MarketLeap searches is AllTheWeb and it will show you
the number of pages where your site is listed. In my case, it's 1015.
Click on the number and you'll be taken to the URL that we started with:
That's where it comes from.
