Submitting Your Website
     The best way to submit your web site to the top search engines is to submit the info to each search engine individually by hand. Do not use a submission service to submit you web page to the top ten sites. It is important that you submit by hand to make sure everything about your web site gets submitted and nothing is left out. It takes more time, but it is well worth it to submit yourself than have someone miss type your site address and not have your page show up. All the major search engines will have a link on their front page that usually reads Submit a Url, Submit a Site, Add URL, or something similar.

Submitting all pages vs. submitting just one page
     A question that is often asked in the Usenet newsgroups and various discussion forums is "Should I submit just one of my pages, or all of them?". The answer to that question is: It depends on where you're submitting to. If you're submitting to website directories, you should usually only submit your home page and nothing else. But if your are targeting the search engines and as you're reading this, you probably are, the answer is: Submit all of your pages. In the good old days, you could just submit your home page and the search engines would follow the links on that page & automatically register the rest of the pages on your site. However, things have changed and you now have to submit all of the pages you want to have included in the search engine's index. As having more pages in the database increases the chances of your site coming up, the only way to succeed is to grab a cup of coffee and start feeding the pages to the search engines one by one... Google is a positive exception to this rule, as it still follows links aggressively. If you're submitting to Google, it's usually enough to only register your home page with it as Google will automatically follow the links and register the other pages.

     When you're submitting the individual pages to different engines, try to register a maximum of five per day per engine. You probably won't get hurt if you exceed that number, but as submitting very large numbers of pages in the course of one day might give your site unwanted attention or cause the search engine to drop some of your submissions, it is better to just stick with the '5 per day per engine' rule, unless your site is really big.

I've submitted, how do I know my pages are there?
     Search for them. You can usually find your pages by entering "URL:yourpageslocationhere" (w/o the quotes) into the search field, sometimes just "yourpageslocationhere" is enough. Some engines don't support these methods, but offer a Power Search/Advanced Search feature that allows you to look for pages located in a specific domain. If you still can't find your pages, it might be that they are not included in the index. If that is the case, don't panic. It takes a while for the pages to appear after you've submitted them, so be patient. Don't resubmit the pages unless it has been about three weeks since you submitted and you still can't find the pages in the database.

     If the pages you have submitted are dynamically created (ie. with a CGI script), it isn't a wonder that they haven't appeared in the index. The best form of pages in terms of pleasing the search engines is the good old .html form.

When should I resubmit to search engines?
     When there's a need to do so. Some people say that you should resubmit every two weeks or every month. I say to you - don't listen to them. Resubmitting just for the sake of doing it does usually more harm than good. Some search engines appear to slightly prefer older pages over brand new pages, so by resubmitting when you really have no need to do so, you're wasting your time and perhaps even damaging your ranking.

You should only resubmit if:
  • The page has disappeared from the database or never appeared there in the first place.

  • Your rankings have dropped/are low and you have made some changes to the page that you think will boost your ranking. In this case, it is recommended that you resubmit in order to make the search engine 'see' the changes you've made. Don't be afraid of resubmitting your pages if you have to, but don't do it just because it's possible.
