An index is another name for the database used by a search engine. Website SEO indexing, is the process by which details of your website are added to the indexes of various search engines.
The search engine index includes not just your website URL, but all content, including texts, images, videos and, in principle, everything within the HTML code of your website.
Search engine indexes contain the information on yours and all other websites that Google (or any other search engine) is able to find. If your website is not listed in a search engine’s index, prospective users will not be able to find your website.
The source data in Google’s (or any other search engine) index ultimately determines the value of different search terms and keywords. Search engines apply their algorithms to the available data, and measure the frequency of different factors under different conditions, which factors are related to one another and so on.
The information garnered from this analysis flows back into Google’s algorithm to provide a new assessment of the index data, which attempts to understand which content best meets which user intent. The Google search results, or rankings, are then calculated on the basis of this content assessment.
As part of the optimisation process, HTML website code is made easier for search engines to scour through and index. Better and easier indexing of your website helps achieve better website rankings. Better website rankings equates to more targeted traffic and more targeted traffic equates to more leads and sales.
There are multiple opportunities for increasing traffic through website SEO indexing, and the most important by far is looking inwards rather than outwards. In fact, the biggest area of SEO is to make sure that your website is as accessible, as possible to the various search engines.
A search engine is a program that searches for and identifies items in a database index that correspond to keywords or characters specified by the user and is used especially for finding particular sites on the World Wide Web, and carries out this search in a systematic way for particular information specified in a web search query.
The leading and most widely used search engine worldwide is Google.
Google represents more than 95% of all searches conducted and is most popular in USA, EU and many other western countries including Canada & Australia.
Other leading search engines are:- Bing, Yahoo, Yandex and DuckDuckGo, while Baidu, Shenma, and Haosou are very popular in China and other Asian countries.
These search engines combined represent 99.999% of total daily searches on the Internet.
Once you confirm your subscription, votazz will implement our propriety indexing algorithm and software on your website URL, and apply it to the major search engines described above. Our software uses a combination of URL submits and pinging to ensure all client sites are indexed accordingly. Once this process is completed, the finalisation of the indexing process is in the hands of the search engine providers.
When you publish a new blog post, website page, or website in general, there are many factors that determine how quickly it will be indexed by Google and other search engine providers.
Google can discover your website anywhere between three to five days of launch.
This time-frame can vary with other search engine providers, but generally we expect your site to be indexed within one to five days from implementing the website indexing process.
Search engine indexing is the process of registering your website with the leading global search engines such as Google, Bing or Yandex. Once you have registered, the search engine will provide HTML code to insert into your website source code, for easier website recognition and searching.

<meta name="msvalidate.01" content="87555583BB4C51C4AC823AEFCDC3CEFB" />

Again, these HTML related changes would be implemented by your Webmaster or website developer.
Search engine optimisation can be divided into two different methodologies:
Both are crucial to the success of an SEO indexing plan, but they are completely different in how they effect search engine rankings.
Put simply, what your website ranks for is largely determined by on-page factors, while how high you website ranks in the search results, is largely determined by off-page factors.
On-page SEO is the act of optimising different parts of your website that affect your search engine rankings. It’s stuff that you have control over and can change on your own website.
On-page SEO ensures that your site can be read by both potential customers and search engine robots. With good on-page SEO, search engines can easily index your web pages, understand what your site is about, and easily navigate the structure and content of your website, thus ranking your website accordingly.
The most important on-page features of your website to consider are, title tags, meta name tags, content name tags, headings, page content, page load speed, etc.
All these HTML related changes would be implemented by your Webmaster or website developer.
Off-page SEO focuses on increasing the authority of your domain through developing links with other websites. Votazz will provide 5000+ backlinks to a variety of websites to increase the exposure of your website in search engine results.
This process does not require action by your webmaster or web developer.
Our objective at Votazz is to provide you with all the necessary analytics, performance ratings and other information to maximise the exposure of your website and services.
We will provide monthly reports highlighting performance results and suggestions to improve the speed and performance of your website. Some of these reports are informative, while others suggest changes to your website HTML code to maximise website speed and your exposure.
