If you want to index backlinks quickly and easily then you are in luck, because today I am going to show you which backlink indexer strategies actually work.
Getting your backlinks indexed is critical to the success of any link building campaign.
There is no point creating links if Google doesn’t index them you are just wasting your time, energy and money.
Indexing backlinks used to be a lot easier than it is today, we could just ping them or create RSS feeds and submit them to RSS directories.
That was highly effective a couple of years ago – but what about now? What is the best way to index your backlinks?

My Backlink Indexer Case Study
To find out what is the most effective way to index backlinks I decided to setup a test to measure the results of different backlink indexer approaches.
I created 5,000 links across 5 separate projects in GSA Search Engine Ranker building links to a dummy site using article directories, social bookmarks, wikis & web 2.0s.
I used Kontent Machine with the worst possible combination of settings to purposely generate the worst possible auto generated spun content you have ever seen.
The type of content people claim is impossible to index and useless in link building.
So once each of the 5 projects had 1,000 verified links – I moved onto indexing them with different methods & services.
PingFarm is a free indexing service that a lot of people in forums swear by. In essence all it does is ping your backlinks and nothing more.
This is one of the oldest methods in the book that died off years ago but its still a tool many use.
The Indexification guys basically create short URL’s of your links, ping them, create & submit RSS feeds, create & ping sitemaps and also create & ping content pages with your links on.
They guarantee that Google will at least crawl every single link you submit to them. You can submit 50,000 links per day for $17.97 month.
The Lindexed service works in pretty much exactly the same way as Indexification. They use the same indexing methods except they have a unique feature called PingCloud.
However it does cost slightly more at $24.97 a month to process 50,000 links per day.
The OneHourIndexing team do not reveal the methods they use to index your links. All I know is that they use ‘secret techniques’ that ‘is not pinging, rss or link building’.
However these secret techniques come at a greater cost – $17 to process 1,000 links per day or $47 / 10,000 per day or $97 / 30,000 per day.
The 5th project I created with GSA was a control group of links. These links will not be submitted to any indexing service or pinged in any way, shape or form.
This will give us a benchmark to measure the other services against to see if indexing services do actually work or not.
Link Indexing Case Study Results
Remember each of the 4 services and control project above had a set of 1,000 verified links each created using the absolute worst quality content I could generate.
I submitted each set of links into their respective indexing services and then index checked the links daily using Scrapebox for 15 days.
Quite often Scrapebox reports links aren’t indexed but when you check yourself, they are. To avoid this I ran a ‘double pass’ index check every day double checking if links are indexed or not.
The Results Are In
Here is a quick summary of the results after 15 days looking at the total % of links indexed.
|Service||Day 1||Day 7||Day 15|
As you can see the results are pretty clear cut, especially when you look at it in graph form-
Wrapping It Up
Without a doubt OneHourIndexing is by far the best link indexing service money can buy. It absolutely dominated the results.
They are just a waste of time & money.
Using the Indexifcation service does have some benefit but only gets half the links indexed than OneHourIndexing.
However OneHourIndexing is 4 times the price of Indexification so that weighs into it.
In my opinion – if you have already invested the time and money creating links. Then there is no point cutting corners when it comes to getting them indexed!
Backlink Indexing Rankings
In summary here is what you need to know-
- OneHourIndexing – The best service period.
- Indexification – Half as good, 4 times cheaper.
- Lindexed – Don’t waste your money.
- PingFarm – Don’t waste your time.
So there you have it, if you want to get your links indexed use OneHourIndexing. They are the best backlink indexer. If you use Lindexed or Pingfarm, stop wasting your time & money.
The next time you see someone telling someone to ping backlinks to index them give them a slap with this post :)
