URL Search

URL Search

One can use specific search strings in most search engines to find if your URL is included

in their index and also to see how many pages are thus indexed. These search strings have

been identified and compiled by some useful resources on SEO.

For searching the pages from your URL in Google for example, insert the following

search string in Google search: (this depends on the index pages

of your site). In the Yahoo directory use the command to find

the listings for this URL. There are similar, but specific search strings applicable to each

search engine.

Again checking the search engine for your URL is a good way to check what that search

engine has indexed. Thus through spider spotting and URL checking you have evaluated

and confirmed the effectiveness of your actions on submission and indexing activities.
