Sick of Paying Search Engines? Learn How to Submit Your Site for Free.
Having problems getting your website listed among
the search engines? Don't feel like paying the $299 that Yahoo charges to
just review your site for listing? Well, if you do not know it already,
there are places you can go for free search engine submission.
Don't Pay, Submit for Free.
Free Search Engine Submission
First, do NOT use those 'free search engine submission' programs that claim
they can put your site into 2,500 search engines. They are unreliable and
can actually hurt your site. The best way to make sure you are included
is the old way; manually submit your site to every search engine out there.
Even though a lot of these engines claim they charge, each has its own back
door for free submissions that just take longer [sometimes up to three months]
to review, and insert, your site.
What can you do during this period of time as you wait for the engines to
hit your site? Work on your site and make it so these engines immediately
want to come back for more. Some engines can take up to 100+ hits from their
robots/spiders before you they will acknowledge your site and list it among
their listings. MSN search is a true example of this; every site I have
built required about two months of continuous visits from MSN before I finally
saw my domain name appear among the listings.
The Shortened List to Submit Your Site to the Best Search Engines Free
The following list is some of the most used search engines, which is a good place to start.
What U Seek
Before You Start Submitting Away
Almost all of the search engines require your email account. The account
you provide will begin to receive advertisements, articles, and endorsements
from some of the search engines. Your best bet is to create a NEW email
account at any of the free email account providers to handle all the incoming
mail due to submitting to all of the listed search engines.
You can also create an account like firstname.lastname@example.org to use as a collection
box for what is bound to be a high amount of bulk email.
Well, stop reading and start submitting. Remember, if your site is a POS, the bots can pick this up due to lack of
depth or content. Be ready for the bots/spiders to hit your site.
Another Way to Get Listed
If you read our article, Staircase to Higher PageRank,
you may catch on to another approach to get listed [this way can actually
be quicker and more successful for some]. If you have some connection, or
friends, that own websites that are heavily indexed by search engines, you
may find more luck just getting these sites to place a link back to your
site. Then, when the spiders come to index that site, they will come along
to your link and end up discovering your site on their own. This strategy
will also give you some free PageRank points as well.
For those of you who had considered paying anywhere up to $300 for search
engines, like Yahoo, you can also ensure placement in tons of engines by
actually spending less. Search on Yahoo or Google the following keywords:
text links. You will come across a lot of programs that allow you to
purchase text links. Look for a PR7 rated site or a couple PR6s, contact
the site owners directly and negotiate the purchase of text links for approximately
three months or more. This way, it ensures that Google will do a PageRank
update during this time [the longest period without an update is 106 days]
causing the popularity of your site to go up along with your rankings on
all [well, a lot] the search engines.
