What Is Search Engine Submission?
The Internet is a highly communicative and informative business environment. At the same time the Internet has a structure and a certain way of organization, so it would not represent a chaotic way of unorganized bits of information, sites and pages. Search engines and directories play a key part in organizing and presenting all the online information and showing paths to web pages to their searchers. Therefore, in this article we will discuss the several ways to do search engine submission of your web site.
Before we can get to discussing methods of search engine submissions, we have to gain the understanding of the difference between two important terms: search engines and directories. It is important, because there are two basic ways for listing web pages and including them in people’s search results: automatic and manual. Automatic crawler based listing and submission of web pages is mainly done on most of the more popular search engines. People based or manual web site listing is another one that is done in some other directories and search engines.
Now with the automatic search engine listing crawlers constantly search the web, find and include all the new web sites to their listings. With people based directories you have to go ahead and submit your web site to the directory and people will manually add it to their listings, so your site would be accessible to their searches.
Understanding this fact, we may come to the conclusion that there is a big difference in doing your search engine submission, depending on the kind of system you are dealing with.
Now, crawler based automatic systems of submission mainly require proper web site optimization and including your keywords in the proper places of your web pages. You should get the right keyword density on your pages and include them in your Titles, Descriptions, Alt tags, Headings, Links, etc. This will allow crawlers to identify your web site properly and place it under the right listing for the search availability.
When you deal with people based directories, you have to go ahead and submit your web site and all its page there on your own. However, there is a good piece of advice: do not start submitting all your web pages at once to the directories. It would be better to submit your main site URL first, providing them with a valid path to your entire site. Then, after waiting for the lead time to pass (the time between search engine submission and their actual listing you in their search results), you may check up if it has been submitted properly and go on with submitting all your web pages to them.
Search engine submission is a crucial part in promoting your web site and generating valid traffic of visitors to it. If done properly it can boost your traffic and increase your profits immensely.
