Here's how to get your site indexed in Google
Here's a quick tip. I see some questions on getting your site indexed especially after you've prefilled your website with content. Here's a quick and sure way of doing it.
Use Google's Webmaster Tools.
Don't confuse this with the XML Sitemap, that's different. To use this tool, Google will require you upload a simple HTML file with a unique filename to verify your site.
Once that its uploaded, Google will validate and you can login and check as often as you like if your website has been indexed or not, including 404s, etc.
The sitemap option is also there, but its not necessary at this stage, just verifying your website will help Google index your website.
Hope this will be helpful.
