The Basics Of Search Engine Submission

Aug 29, 2008
Getting your site seen by the people who want and need your products and services is the main focus of every site owner and search engine submission is an important part of any successful online marketing campaign. Before you are ready to begin submitting your site to the search engines, your site will need to meet the basic guidelines for SEO. If you are unsure if your site meets the minimum standards, then it may be a good idea to use some of the free tools available on the internet to make certain your site is 100% ready.

There are many opinions on whether you should use search engine submission software. While there are some very good choices on this subject, for the most part, if you only have one or two websites then the cost for using this software could be more expensive than the time you might save using it.

The best bet is to create a bookmark folder with the URLs to the top 5 search engine submission pages, and use a Word document or text file with the information you will need in order to complete your submissions. The information you will need to have ready for site submissions is your site's title, URL, site description and an email address.

The first and most important place to submit your site to is not Google. While Google is considered to be the leader in providing quality results for search queries, DMOZ is the largest human based directory. Getting listed in DMOZ will not only provide you with good rankings, it will also help in building your PR.

After submitting your site to DMOZ it may take as long as 6 months to get listed. The next step is submitting your site to Google, Yahoo, MSN, and AOL. These search engines are the most used engines in the world, and many ISPs use these search engines as their default regional search engine provider.

Once you have your site submitted to the major search engines, your next step is to submit your site to as many directories as possible. Having your site indexed in college and other public databases will help your overall ranking on the major search engines because Google and the other major search engines will also index these public databases and directories, and the more sites your pages are indexed on the better your chances for a prominent ranking.
