Found the answer to my question over at Learn Archery. Below is an excerpt from their blog post, please visit Learn Archery for What does nocking the arrow mean?

Nocking the arrow is the process of holding the arrow so you can snap the nock onto the bowstring.

It also means checking that the arrow's index vanes or fletching are orientated on the bowstring for proper clearance as the arrow passes the riser.

It also means paying close attention to where the nock is attached to the bowstring in relation to the nock set or D-Loop.

Let's get started...

Nocking the Arrow

1) Hold the arrow shaft close to the nock behind the fletching or vanes.

2) Place the arrow shaft on the arrow rest.

3) Rotate the shaft so the index vane is pointing in the right direction.

          a) Recurve Bow - the index vane should be pointing away from the riser. In other words, rotate
              the shaft until the index vane is between your body and the riser.

          b) Compound archers will index the arrow differently depending on the type of arrow rest
              installed on your bow.

                   -  If you are uncertain about how to properly index your arrow on the arrow rest go to the
                      arrow rest page for compound shooters.

4) When the index vane is properly aligned or orientated, SNAP the nock of the arrow onto the bowstring under the nock locator or nock-set (Recurve Bow) or between the nock locators if you use two nock sets.

          a) The process is the same for compound archers unless you are using a "D-Loop".

                   - When nocking an arrow on a bowstring with a D-Loop, the knock on the shaft goes
                     between the upper and lower knot of the D-Loop.

                   - If there is a gap left after the arrow is snapped into position, the nock on the arrow shaft
                     should be pushed toward the top of the D-Loop.

That is all there is to nocking the arrow...or is it? "
