How to Cache the Inner Pages of a Website
November 12, 2010
So we’ve optimized the site, begun building links, and are well on our way to those number 1 Google rankings. We know that we want to build links towards the inner pages of the site as not to bombard the home page and get us blacklisted from every major search engine. Now we have just one problem – Google is not indexing the inner pages of the site which means they are virtually non-existent which means the links we’ve built to those pages are useless. Well, maybe not entirely useless but they are certainly not pulling us up to page 1.
So what do we need to do in order to get Google to recognize these pages?
1. Create a Site Map. Whether we are traveling the world, taking a little road trip, or simply trying to find our way around Disneyland, many of us would be pretty lost without a map. Maps help us get from point A to point B with minimal confusion – well…sometimes. Anyway, the spiders that Google sends out to index websites have the same problem if they do not have some sort of outlet to help guide them through the site. Without a map, they will index the home page and move on to the next site leaving the rest of your pages and links untouched. Having a site map is one of the best ways to ensure that Google will recognize and index each page of your website.
2. Insert Text Links. As much as you may love your fancy image links that direct customers to each page of your site, Google does not. Their spiders are incapable of recognizing images as valid information and as a result, they do not index those inner-page links. Be sure to include text links throughout the website so that Google can easily crawl each page of the site. This will help get all of your pages cached, allowing the search engines to identify the links you have built to the site.
These are just a couple of ways to be sure that you are getting the most out of your link building efforts.
Good Luck and we’ll see you on the 1st page!
