Baidu official | 4 methods to improve Index rate in Baidu

Baidu index rate (sample)

Hello guys, Park again. today I will translate (also including some of my thinkings)  a Baidu official article about how to improve index rate. Most of time, the Baidu index rate never go up not because the content you provide, mainly reason is the Baidu spider never crawled your pages.

I will show 4 methods about how to improve your index rate (actually it’s crawling rate) in Baidu below. Before you reading this, please understand that, baidu spider is super lazy. It’s efficiency is much lower than Google bot.

  1. Active submit
  2. Sitemap submit
  3. Automatic submit
  4. Manual submit

Active Submission: Baidu officially recommended

In this method, baidu will provide an port code (we called it token value) for each registered site. Site owners could use the port code to input a special function(php function) into their sites. When the page is updated or a new page is published, the function will be active, and the new URL will submit to Baidu automatically.

Sitemap Submission

Same as google, but Google sitemap submission seems more efficient.

Automatic Submission: I highly recommended

I really like this submission, which is simple. Put a short javascript code into every page you got. When the page is opened, the URL will be automatically submitted to Baidu. Here is a small trick of mine, If the page was not indexed for a long time. We can use a click simulator to open the page over and over again.

Manual Submission

Do not use it, it’s stupid and waste of time.

At last, I want to explain why index rate is so important in Baidu. Index means your pages have chances to be explored by search engine users. which indicates that the page is scored by search engine. So, index rate will be the main element to determine the average page score of you site.  which decides how many users can see your site. (hope you guys understand what I’m saying)

[ Baiduspider VS GoogleBot Part 1 – Spider IP ] before you do Baidu SEO

Baidu seo

Hello guys, It’s me, Park. Today I want to follow my last article to discuss more about the difference between Google and Baidu.

Today’s topic is Baidu spider and Google Bot. And I want to discuss this topic in two sections. First is IP.

As we all known, that all the crawlers have their own IPs. For example, Google bot normally start it’s IP with “”

In Baidu, it’s different. Usually they start with “123”, “220”, “111”. In some special occasions, their IPs may start with “181”, “180”.

Different IP means different functions in Baidu.

Baidu IP “” Spider: I like to call it scanner

Why scanner? Because, most of the job they do are scanning the whole website, put all the new URLs into a crawling list. And then pass the list to “220” spiders.

In my website database ( I got most of my followers’ website data, just for data analysis ), which shows that scanner get less data then “220” spiders (via server log). And matter of fact, “220” spider will come to your website right after a scanner crawled the site.

Baidu IP “” Spider: Vertical Crawler

Vertical, Yes, You hear me right. Which meas that the “220” spiders go much deeper than scanners. They will get the page content fully, including words, phrases, image code, etc. Before the page was indexed by Baidu. We always find that the Vertical Crawler have come to the exact URL.

Baidu IP “” Spider: Render

Render Spider (Official name, it’s not named by me) only crawls js/css/fonts documents, which effect user experience directly. It’s important, make sure the crawling path is clear ( Robots.txt ) and your server didn’t block the Renders’ IPs.

I’m not sure I explained the 3 types of spiders clearly. Hope you guys can give me some feed back in comment section, thanks.

[ Chinese VS English ] before you do Baidu SEO

Hey Guys, It’s me Park.

In this week’s articles, I want to share some seo tips for beginners. Before you do SEO in a Chinese Searching Engine, you may want to know the difference ahead.

Tip 1: Chinese VS English

English words are separated by SPACE. For search engines like Google may easily divide these words and find the main meaning of the phrase. But in Chinese, words only separated by punctuation. It’s hard for a machine to understand the phrase fully. For beginners, you should know how to divide Chinese by using “stop words” to make sure that machine can run your article smoothly.

[ Do not think, you can speak fluent Chinese so you can do perfect words separation. As an old Baidu SEOer, first I write for the machine, than for my human customers. Make machine understand what you saying is tricky. ]

Please forgive my poor English, I will try to explain my thinkings in a simple way.

In My next article, I think I will discuss the difference in crawlers (Baidu-spider & Google Bot).

This is my first article!

Hey, guys, My name is Park, welcome to my website. It’s not my first website, hope not the last.

Meanly, I will post some tips about Baidu SEO technics every week. (I think)

Hope you guys like it.

Peace out
