"Indexing your WordPress site for SEO is like playing a round of golf πŸŒοΈβ€β™‚οΈ. You tee off with landing pages linked to golf courses, add a bunch of internal links, and use tools like Rankmath and Index Me Now to help Google find and index your pages faster. It’s all about getting that hole-in-one 🎯 of search engine visibility!"


In this golf digital marketing series, we’ve covered the process of creating a sitemap for a golf course directory website, including landing pages by state and individual golf course pages. Now, we’ll explore some programmatic SEO secrets to aid in the indexation of these pages.

Internal Linking Strategy

A critical part of our SEO strategy is to encourage Google to index as many pages as possible. To do this, we’ve strategically linked the landing pages of each state to all the golf courses within that state. Additionally, we’ve included a random list of other golf courses in each state on individual golf course pages.

Utilizing Sitemaps

With the help of RankMath, we’ve generated individual sitemaps for each of the courses. These sitemaps contain 200 URLs by default, allowing for easy indexing by search engines. It’s noteworthy that limiting sitemaps to 10,000 URLs is ideal, as recommended by experienced SEO professionals. Luckily, with RankMath and WordPress, we don’t have to worry about this limitation.

Google Search Console Integration

Once the sitemaps are generated, they need to be added to Google Search Console for indexing. This process may take some time, hence patience is required. However, integrating sitemaps into the Google Search Console will provide insights into the number of pages being indexed over time.

Efficient Indexing Methods

In addition to using sitemaps, we can utilize tools such as IndexMe, which allows for the quick indexing of selected links at a nominal credit charge. This method has proven effective for rapid indexing of pages. We’ve also employed the "Request Indexing" feature in Search Console to prompt Google to index the homepage and other specific pages for increased visibility.

Tracking Progress and Refinement

Following the implementation of these strategies, it’s essential to monitor the results. By using tools like Google Analytics, we can track indexing progress and analyze the incoming traffic, thereby refining our SEO approach accordingly.
