How Submitting Your Website to Search Engines Help Your Rankings

Sep 3, 2008
Submitting your website to a search engine is very important if you have a web-based business or if a significant portion of your business is done on the Internet through your website; this move is the best advertising and marketing tool you can find. No amount of press releases, newspaper or radio ads, banner ads, spam email, or newsletters will achieve the same degree of success; though they too have their own special niches or uses.

Having said that, beware of companies that promise automatic submission of your website to hundreds of search engines, promising undeliverable results. The best way to submit your website for search engine ranking and inclusion is to do it on your own accord, or to hire an expert to do it manually by making direct contact with the search engine companies and directories.

Before you begin to submit your website to search engines, make sure that your websites are thoroughly, professionally designed, with the right key words, eye-catching graphics and pictures, and relevant, valuable content. Dont submit websites that are incomplete or in need of enhancements. While submitting your site to a search engine, always provide information about your website, keywords and any other pertinent information, including the name and contact information related to your business.

Mere submission to search engine companies does not guarantee that your site would be listed right away, and/or that your ranking will be high. Thousands of new websites are posted on a daily basis, and it may be awhile before human editors consider your site. One important thing to include when submitting your site is a site map of your website, which facilitates the web robot crawling process. Search engines like google dot com will almost never consider submissions without sitemaps. Many online companies accept search engine submission services. You can do the job yourself with a software package and service like this one:

ibp dot com

Or if you want professional assistance with this process, try the following sites:

addpro dot com under professional submission

submitawebsite dot com

Dont use the automatic submission services, under any circumstances. The search engine can detect this and it can negatively affect you.

Here is a list of the most popular Search Engines and directory companies:

Search Engines Go.com/InfoSeek AltaVista Google, HotBot Excite/Webcrawler

Directories AOL Search Inktomi Lycos Open Directory MSN, Yahoo! LookSmart Snap

Apart from those listed above, you can submit your website to any of the thousands of search engines and directory companies, where you can submit your website to as many companies as feasible.
