Resubmit for new subdomains?


Recommended Posts

When I institute my new subdomains, should I resubmit each to Google as a separate URL (since by some definitions they are indeed separate), or will the existing index for the site as a whole incorporate them as subsets?

 

I have read varying advice on this subject around the web, but nothing authoritative.

If you don't have links to your subs from the main then Google and others won't automatically "leap" over there to check it out. If you have links and your main is indexed then the crawlers will follow the links and eventually gobble the sub up too.

I am not a fan of submitting. If you have inbound links and you have links on your site to all of your other pages in one way or another then Google should find it on the next pass.

 

That said, if you absolutely, positively have to have it there overnight, then submit again. Just remember, Google even states it isn't necessary to keep submitting even after changes are made. And there is no guarantee that it will get things updated any faster if you do.

As Rob stated above, it is definitely best not to submit to Google but to allow googlebot to follow links to any new content.

 

Also, as Jim advised, make sure to have a site link structure which will allow a spider (any) to find all your pages.
