Hi there,

I want to know that how much time Google, Yahoo and MSN take to index all the pages of a website.

I have a 100 pages website and when all the pages will be indexed and appear in the search results.

Secondly, If I make a change in any web page of my website then should I resubmit my website in Google and Yahoo and when this UPDATED page will appear in the search results.

I will be very thankful for any kind of help in this regard.

Regards
Kamil

Index update of Search Engines do not occur in a given time frame. Google, Yahoo! and MSN bots will discover your site and then crawl them.

If your site has been indexed before then the Search bots will visit your website and when they find your website updated they will crawl. This process may take just a week or even months, it purely depends on the Search Engine.

But if you want to speed up the process, you can consider joining Google Sitemaps and Yahoo! Site Explorer program. MSN does not provide any such service.

There is no fix timing. It differs from SE to SE. Most probably google takes 2-3 months.

kashifkb, let's be clear on our terms.

Indexing simply means that the SE's have found and stored information about the contents of whatever they find at a given URI (commonly thought of as a "page" on your site). They've gotten exceedingly good at finding things. That doesn't take long...one decent inbound link from an external site's page usually does it.

But, a page can be indexed, and still not rank for quite some time. Factors used in assesing how long it takes for a newly found page to rank include how many inbound links there are to that page (from both inside and outside that page's domain), how many links there are to the site housing that page, the quality of the inbound links to that domain and that page, and so on.

The SE's take different approaches to how frequently and deeply a given domain is crawled, and how pages are ranked.

Simply put, the more high quality links a site and page have from other sites on the Web, the more likely it is that the linked-to page will rank well. (That assumes the page is well constructed, doesn't feature mainly duplicate content, etc..)

So just being found and indexed, is not the same as ranking, which takes time, and is dependant upon how many links and other signals of quality there are to suggest that a given page should rank well for a given search query. Hope that helps.

Hi there,

Thank you very much for your reply.

Yes exactly, I wanted to know about the ranking of a web page for a certain keyword.

Can you please elaborate the ranking procedure in the below example.

let's say: I want to promote the following web page with this keyword "page rank"
www.abc.com/page_rank.html

How many inbound links from the other related sites are enough to get this page in top 10 in Google and how much time is required for this ranking?

Secondly, Should I optimize each page separately with a certain keyword?

While doing inbound linking what text in the title and description should I use.

I will be really thankful to you for providing me some more help on the above questions.
Regards

There is no set answer. It depends on the category, the level of competitiveness, the quality of your site and site pages, how many links and the quality of the links, and so on. There are literally hundreds of factors involved. Getting to a top 10 G or Y ranking can take months, years, or may never happen at all.

As for optimizing sites and pages, try these:
