The Fastest Way Google Has Indexed a Website for Me

I have a new website that had been live for more than a week, but hadn't submitted it to Google yet because I was still making changes on it.

One night, I thought I should check to see if Google might have found it and indexed it on its own. So, I typed the "site operator" (site:mydomainname.com) into the address bar to see if Google had any record of it.

No results were found.

The next morning, for some reason, I had a feeling that I should check again -- which I did. The result: all the pages of my website were indexed.

Now, I am not saying that Google indexed it for that very reason, but I am guessing it wasn't a coincidence.

    Not sure if that is why but I'm glad it got indexed for you. Could be a coincidence and could not be - you will probably never know.

      The reason might have been that my use of the "site operator" gave Google a hint that the site existed (which Google didn't know before), and Google went ahead and indexed it at that time.

      Would be interesting to know what the result would be if someone else tried it.

        You're probably right. Google saw a search for a specific domain name which they didn't have in their index, so crawlers were sent to that url, found there actually was a site there and indexed it.

    Whenever google see fresh contents its indexed very first. May be you have posted some contents. Its may be one reason. Not sure.

    That's not strange whenever you search something bots remember it, so it could be possible after your search session bots got information about your site and crawled.

    There are trillions of googlebot in the world, of course it is easy to get indexed so quickly and websites nowadays are interlinked making the googlebot indexing more pages. Pinging also helps to index your page.

      When I did the "site" lookup, I wasn't trying to get my website indexed fast. In fact, I wasn't even going to submit it yet because, as I said, I was still making changes on it.

      However, the ultimate result made me think that the "site operator" use could be a fast way if someone wants a website indexed quickly.

      In the past, whenever I submitted a URL on Google's addurl page (looks like this doesn't exist any more), it got indexed within 3-4 days. Now, indexing took only a few hours even without submitting.

      Your comments about adding content and social bookmarking are true, and more relevant to Google regularly visiting a site.

    When you search anything in search box, google bots remember it, you tried to search your site in Google but first time you can't see your site in Google search results. so might be after your search, google bot go to the site & found that was a actually a site which never indexed before. Google bot show a new website so indexed in their database.
