We’ve been experimenting for a while now on different techniques for improving search engine indexing rates. And we’ve got some good news: we can happily say that we’ve found a service that seems to work quite well.
In our tests, we managed to increase the indexing rates of a random set of over 400 social media account URLs by nearly 50% (48% to be exact) over a 3 week period. That’s huge.
Why is it important for backlinks to be indexed?
It’s widely believed in the SEO business that backlinks aren’t valuable unless they are visible in Google’s index (by doing a site: or info: search for the url in Google). I personally think links can also be valuable (possibly less valuable though) if Google decides not to show them in their index, but that’s just my opinion. My reasoning is that many sites use the noindex meta tag, but why should this mean that links from these pages to other pages should be ignored in determining rankings?
What does this mean to SocialAdr members?
All social media links created by SocialAdr will now be processed by BacklinksIndexer. We’re not charging anything extra for this new feature, and there’s nothing you need to do to enable it for your account.
By boosting the indexation rates, this should increase the “link juice” or SEO benefit of these links. As far as exactly how much effect this should have on rankings, we’re not sure, but if you happen to notice any differences, we’d love to hear about it.
