Google can also discover your site on its own if another site links to it. This + submitting my sitemap initially is usually enough for my site.

If you're cross-posting content to DEV from your blog you could try adding an "Originally posted on " line to the DEV post.

I knew that more cross-referencing (backlinking?) helps with SEO but didn't know that it helps with unindexed files discoverability. Lots of good insight here 👍
