SEO Tips : Scheduled Posting or Posting Immediately Are you doing scheduled posting ? or you are posting immediately when it pass your criteria? Well the reason I ask this is due to SEO ( Search Engine Optimization ) issue. We all know that whoever got index by Google first has a better chance to top the Google SERP although this is not always the case. I came late ofย  Pinoy Money Talk SEO Contest but I am still at the 2nd Page

Based on experienced the last few days, I am testing doing a schedule posting and Immediate publishing of my post and I found out that when you publish your document as soon as possible Google can index it in an about 15 to 30 minutes whereas when I post a schedule post it will take about 4 to 5 hours before it can be indexed by Google.

How am I doing the SEO Experiment and What is the Result ?

This testing is only applicable to those sites that has been indexed by Google before.

Scenario : Publishing Immediately

After publishing your post wait for about 10 to 15 minutes and head over to Google, Get your title and copy paste to Google Search Bar. Usually it will give you a response of your post Title with your Permalink on it.

Scenario : Scheduled Publishing

After seeing the post in the Front Page and do the same above will not result you any relevant to your Permalink.After an hour or two it might give you Your homepage address having a bold letters for your title. That will only means that it is cached from your homepage.

Publishing in an Search Engine Optimized Way

1) Don’t make an schedule post not unless it is necessary.

2) When you have any great news or article post it immediately as soon as you could.

3) Schedule your posting only if you will go to vacation wherein you cannot do your blogging hobby on time.

4) Better make draft then later publish.


It only means that Your blog Pings Google immediately if you publish your post immediately and it will have a delayed ping for the scheduled post. I have tried this theory in about 5 post. Other tips for linking here.
