Looking for an ultimate guide on how to index backlinks in Google? You are landed on the perfect page.
In this article, I’ll teach you each and everything which you want to know regarding the indexing of your backlinks in detail.
In addition, I will also share my favorite and personal strategy which I use to index all types of backlinks almost instantly (within a few hours).
So, stick to this article and ease your whole work.
First of all, let me tell you that not all your links need to be indexed because Google indexes your quality backlinks automatically.
Now, the question is…
…how do I know which backlinks should I index and which not?
The answer is; first, you have to wait at least 1-10 days after creating backlinks to give Google enough time to crawl and index them. After that, you have to check which ones are left non-indexed.
What is the correct way of checking the indexing of backlinks?
The correct way to check the indexing is only through Google. Simply put the URL (where your link is available) in Google and see what comes.
If it shows something as in the screenshot then your link is not indexed.
A Thing to Remember!
Do not expect the indexing immediately, it could take anywhere between 1 to 10 days (only if it is worth indexing).
How to Index Backlinks Fast in Google?
Simply follow the below-mentioned strategies and you will definitely see good results.
Social Media Sharing
This is a very effective way of indexing backlinks.
Just share the URLs to all the famous social media sites like:
After submitting your links, wait for a couple of days. Although not all your links get indexed with this method, still you’ll see a good indexing rate.
Bookmark your links to all famous social bookmarking sites as this is a very good and easy way to index backlinks because Google bots come regularly to the social bookmarking sites. So if they found your links on many sites they will surely index your links.
Some of the best bookmarking sites include:
- Tumblr etc…
Ping/Submit to Free Indexing Tools
You can also submit your links to the free online pinging and indexing tools.
Some of the good free tools are:
This method is not as effective as others but still, it gives your links a little bit of boost and helps in crawling.
Send Traffic to your Links
If you are able to send traffic to your backlink URLs, then send traffic from different IPs. This will make Google bot think, the presence of the URL and it will come to it and will index it.
There are different software available like Hitleap which you can use to send unlimited free traffic to the links.
This is one of my most used strategies to make my links index on Google.
I always advise not to use blog commenting directly for building backlinks instead use it to make already build links index and to strengthen them.
I have tried this technique a lot of times and each time I have got a 50%+ indexing rate.
Don’t have time for comments? Don’t worry, now you can buy such links as low as 1$ from SeoClerks.
Web 2.0 Links (My Favorite Method)
This is my favorite method to index the backlinks almost instantly. The indexing rate with this method is more than 70%.
Let me explain it to you in detail.
First of all, you need to create Web 2.0 sites.
My favorites are:
Make accounts on all 3 and submit them to the Google Webmaster tool. Now, write 2-3 unique articles for each site (you can also use spun content but I’ll prefer handwritten) so that your sites get indexed by Google properly.
- Now, your sites are properly indexed in Google.
Here comes the best part, write articles and at the end add your links which you want to index.
Do not insert more than 5-10 links in a single article as this will decrease the indexing rate.
After publishing the article with the links you want to index, go to the new Google Search Console and click the URL Inspection icon, then a box will lighten where you have to add the URL.
See the Screenshot:
After adding the URL, click the Enter button on your keyboard.
Within a few seconds, you will see this:
Here you have to click the Request Indexing button and you are all set.
Please Note: In the screenshot, you are seeing a Green Tick Mark because my URL is already indexed but as your’s not so you will not see it. So, do not be confused.
Usually, it takes 12 to 48 hours to index the backlinks but in some cases, you will see the results within the first few hours.
One Hour Indexing (Paid Tool)
Note: This is a paid method.
I am personally using this tool and found it very useful and accurate. I have tried many indexing tools but this one is so far the best and has indexed approximately more than 60% of my backlinks each time.
If you create lots of backlinks and do not have time to manually index them then you must go for it.

Index Backlinks Wrapping it Up!
So, guys, these are some of the best ways to index backlinks fast and free in Google. One thing I want to make clear is that those links which are of very low quality or are on pages with “no-index tag” will also not get indexed by these methods. So try to build quality links for your website or blog.
