How to know if your site and pages have been indexed by Google/Bing and free secure ways to index them.

To know if your site has been index by google or any search engine is actually easy. Some people will actually go to google and search for there website, and once displayed by google, they believe it has been indexed by Google.
Google or any search engine will fully index your site only when you submit what we all know as a sitemap to them.
So if you haven't submitted any sitemap to google or other search engines and your site still appear on search results, that doesnt actually mean it have been indexed.

To confirm what am saying here, just go to any search engine, search for any of your pages with your url beside it, you will see no related post.
