Note : I bought a domain this morning and while I was setting it up, I decide to jot down what are the steps I took. Some of them are done simultaneously. The site is indexed by Google within 23 minutes or maybe earlier. Is that fast or what? So who needs any SEO gurus tutelage lah. Just follow my 15-steps and you get a site running and indexed within an hour. No need to carry angmoh balls. Last I count, I have 20 domains in BlueHost and I dare not even count the number of domains I have at GoDaddy, hosted on my VPS managed by Bryan.
