Number of Pages Indexed tool by SelfSEO allows you to check the total number of pages that has been indexed by the search engines. It supports all major search engines: Google, Yahoo, MSN, Alltheweb, Hotbot and AltaVista.
Some Tips to get your website indexed quickly in the Search Engine:
1. Site structure
First step is to make sure that your sub-pages are easily accessible by the search engine crawlers. Try creating a sitemap page that links to all pages of your website and place a link of the sitemap in your homepage. If you have a large website, break the sitemap up in several parts and keep the total link number under 100 per page. Link from your homepage to deep pages to get them indexed and crawled faster.
2. No session IDs
Try to get rid of session IDs on your pages. Crawlers would rarely index pages with a session IDs because they think that those are different pages (because of the different IDs) with the same content. [Duplicate content issue]
3. No variables in the URLs
Avoid using variables in your site URL. They are indexed slowly and often gets no no PageRank. Use Apache’s mod_rewrite feature to convert your dynamic pages to static. Redirect all old pages to the new ones with a 301 redirect. Note however that if you do that for your established website, search engines will need some time to crawl the new static pages.
4. Build Links
Inbound (incoming) links are half of the SEO battle nowadays. Your website needs links from quality, on topic websites. The higher your Trustrank is the faster and deeper your website will be crawled by bots. Get links not only to your home page, but also to the deep pages. Make sure the spiders can find your site from different places.
5. Produce Content with a Consistency
Try to produce content with a consistency. Make a plan of how many times on a week/day you will update your site. Try pushing the new content on the top of your site so that they can be seen by the Search Engine more easily.
