Submitting Your Website To The Search Engines

Posted by Steve | Posted in SEO by Request | Posted on 20-03-2011



If you have recently registered a domain and uploaded your website then the first step in advertising and promoting your web site is to submit to a the search major engines. While there are literally thousands of search engines the the most significant are Google, Yahoo and Bing,

Beware of companies that promise automatic submission of your website to hundreds of search engines which are but only false promises. The best way to submit your website for search engine ranking and inclusion is to do it yourself or to hire an expert to do it manually, by contacting the search engine companies and directories.

Before you begin to submit your website to search engines ensure your websites are thoroughly designed to the professional quality using the right key words, good graphics and pictures and the relevant content. Don’t submit websites that are incomplete. While submitting to a search engine, make sure to provide information about your website, keywords and any other information that may be pertinent, including the name and contact information of your business.

Mere submission to search engine companies does not guarantee that your site would be immediately listed and the ranking will be high. Because there are thousands of new websites coming up every day and it may take quite sometime before they take up your site for review by human editors. One important factor to remember while submitting site is to include a site map of your website which makes the crawling easy for the web robots. Search engines like ‘http://www.google.com’ hardly considers submissions without sitemaps.

To submit you site to Yahoo you can go here

To submit your site to Bing you can go here

You can check whether your site has been indexed in Google by typing site:www.yoursitenamehere.com

Personally, I only check Google site submissions. They have an 87% share of the search engine market so they are by far the dominant force.

Thats it for search engine submission. My next post will be about tools to measure your site as it moves through the rankings.
