Search Engine Submission


This page is designed to help you understand the relationship between the leading search engines and directories. We have tried to keep this page short and to the point, especially since some of our site focuses heavily on SEO marketing tools and search engine optimization techniques.

The things to remember are that you must have suitable URL content AND be engineered to beat your competition with the various engines before you register with these engines. Just registering with an engine does will not necessarily improve search engine ranking. It is vital that your site be found in all of the major engines, not just in one engine.

Each section allows for a search of your keywords or site name, then provides a link to their ADD URL page. There is also a brief description of what a search engine looks for in determining ranking. Personally, what search engines look for is their secret sauce, and is very private. But the major characteristics are well "suspected" and the basis for most organic search engine optimization practices.

This page focuses on hand search engine submission links, techniques, and SEO tools. Hand submission is effective and not too expensive if you limit your hand submissions to the major search engines. But beyond these few sites the return on investment quickly decreases (takes too much time thus becomes too expensive) and you must use an automated tool.


This page is a part of a MUCH larger site discussing Web site search engine optimization and offering FREE advice and SEO tips on how to get more visitors to your site. It is recommended that you visit our HOME page and browse the entire site for more information about search engine placement, SEO marketing and our search engine ranking services.
