How to Make a Website Searchable on Google


Once you complete the design of your website, the next step you should take is to get your site listed in the search engines. There are hundreds of search engines that you can list your site on. Your goal is to be ranked with the top ones, which includes Google. In order to make your website searchable on Google, it must be submitted to the Google database. However, before you submit your site, there are a few steps you can take to increase your site's searchability.

  • Ensure that your all of your web pages have titles. The title bar is the blue bar that appears at the top of every web page. It is one of the first things that search engine spiders look for when crawling around the web looking for keywords. For that reason, your title bars should include keywords that are relevant to your site. Some site builders will allow you to complete a "Title" field when you are designing your web pages. If your site builder does not offer this feature, you must use HTML code to incorporate titles via "meta tags" (see Resources)

  • Check the text that is on the pages of your website. In order to be found in Google, your website must have keywords that a search engine user is searching for. Be sure that relevant keywords are sprinkled throughout the pages of your website. This process is referred to as building "keyword density."

  • Create a description for your website. The description should be a short, two to three sentence statement of what your website is all about. This description is what a search engine user will see in the search results enticing her to click on your link. Be sure to list your keywords in the description. If your site builder settings do not allow you to enter a description for your website, you can create meta tags to include your description. This will require some knowledge of HTML code.

  • Submit your website to Google's database by using Google's URL submission form. This URL submission form can be found in the Google Webmaster Tools (see Resources).
