My new pages are not getting indexed fast enough. I am afraid other spammers may pick up my content and index it first making them the originating content.
How to I ensure this doesn't happen?
How do I index faster without using a sitemap? (I don't want to use a site map because my blog is part of a bigger site and I can't seem to keep track of the pages and am afraid now to create a sitemap because if I miss out some pages, it may drop those pages not in the sitemap. Plus it is a hassle to keep updating them.
Also just out of curiosity, I have so much of content spam (I haven't yet implemented a captcha yet which I will do), but I notice a lot of trackbacks. Not sure what those are?
Also I notice that since I started the blog early this month, my whole site stats have gone down instead of up. Not sure what are the reasons. I've heard before that if I create content, the page rank is shared with the new pages and it dilutes the weight of the main pages. Is there any truth to that? If so what do I do?
You didn't mention what platform your blog is using so it is hard to give specific answers, but two things stand out: Sitemaps should not be manually built, there are too many ways to automate that and have it always up to date. You need to look at whatever settings are available to your platform that let you control what gets posted and prevent spam and pron from being part of your content.
Good luck with scrapers, maybe start taking a look at your access logs instead of stats only. Stats don't tell you what they came for or what kind of a visit it was. Learn to see the valuable information about what is really happening on your site - it can tell you what you need to work on first.
Basically, if you page is new, it will not index instantly. However you can use some tools to help you figure out the real problem with it. Use webmaster tool to track down the errors and fix it. If you posted real quality write-ups, you can use feeds to crawl it. Also, you can ping your site and create more content from time to time.
