Using website directory auto-indexing

This FAQ will help you to configure auto-indexing on your hosting package

Automatic indexing is a great way of improving your website's Search Engine Optimisation.

Auto Indexing scans your website content, allowing search engines to quickly and efficiently learn what your website is about, and the kind of content you have on there. Indexing allows search engines to read your content, meaning that you’re more likely to rank higher in Search Engine results; this will mean that more people are likely to find your website.
