Search Engine Submission Services
Search Engine Submission Services
Search engine submission refers to the act of getting your web site listed with search engines. Another term for this is search engine registration. Getting listed does not mean that you will necessarily rank well for particular terms, however. It simply means that the search engine knows your pages exist.
Before submitting, you must of course find a place to submit to and it is highly recommended that any site owner establish a search engine submission budget. This is true whether you are running a commercial web site.
Most popular search engines
Although there are thousands of search engines exists on the web today, it is estimated that 95% of all searches are done through the top few engines and Without top rankings in major search engines for key words and phrases related to your products and services, you are definitely missing the bulk of your potential customers.
This doesn't mean that you should completely ignore the smaller engines that aren't mentioned here, but it does mean that you should focus on the big ones. If you can rank well in just one or two of the major search engines, the traffic you'll receive will in most cases surpass that of 20 minor engines put together.
Manual submission V/S Auto submission
If you ask webmasters to describe their single most frustrating task and you're likely to get an earful about the search engine and directory submission process. It can be confusing, tedious, time-consuming, and expensive. Manual Submission A MUST For Directories i.e. Human-based search engines (directories) Some search engines and directories make it virtually impossible to be included except by manual submission. The two best examples are perhaps Goggle and DMOZ.
A directory is organized into categories and subcategories. Each directory has a different hierarchical structure (i.e. category layout), and each one has its own set of submission guidelines. Human editors review each directory submission and evaluate the site's quality and relevance. Success only comes when you submit a high quality site to the proper category.
Spider-based search engines
With the spider-based search engines, both automated and manual submissions work well. In an ideal situation, you should only have to submit the Home page from your site, and the search engines should be able to find the rest of the pages on your site from a single submission. Manual Search Engine Submission Takes Time. All search engines allow you to submit your site manually, generally through an "Add URL" or "Suggest A Site" link - if you can find it. Some webmasters swear that search engines intentionally make it hard to submit by hiding their "Add URL" links.
Avoid that endless repetition by using an automated tool that remembers your site's information. You just have to enter the information once into the form and the tool takes care of submitting to individual search engines. This does not mean that there is something inherently wrong with automated submission. These tools are also useful if you need to resubmit often since the information is stored and ready to send out.
The use of automated submissions has varied causes but some obvious reasons can be identified. Automated submissions can lead to server overload and vulnerability to denial of service attacks. Inappropriate submissions, for example submitting a general interest URL to a specialty engine, can happen much more easily when submission is automated. Finally, manually maintained directories are particularly sensitive to inappropriate categorization and trivial requests for inclusion. For them manual submissions separate the wheat from the chaff.
Submission Conformation and Update
For an individual who is doing a one-time submission of his site to search engines, updates are not a major issue. For the web developer who makes submissions on a regular basis for different clients, it is quite a different matter.
If you can't find your pages, it might be that they are not included in the index. If that is the situation, don't panic. It always takes the search engine a while to index content after it has been submitted, so be patient.
Don't resubmit the pages unless it has been about three weeks since you submitted and you still can't find them in the database.
