Are you a new blogger and trying to rank your posts on the first SERP of search engines? Are you aware about the importance of XML Sitemaps and Feeds?
Most search engines love to share fresh and relevant links only. Established players have already their posts, which have been posted since long, showing up on first SERPs. So as a new blogger you need to compete with established players through the freshness of your posts.
Your blog posts have two USPs:
- Relevant content
Encash the freshness first.
Do that by setting up XML sitemaps and fresh publish dates. Then don’t block the sitemaps and feeds from your site and let them be crawled by search engines.
After a few days, if your posts are relevant then they will start showing up in first SERPs.
