One of the most important aspects of web site promotion is to ensure that your web page is listed wherever possible. Once your website has been created and is LIVE, notifying relevant search engines and directories is usually the first step to promoting and marketing your website.
How Will The Search Engines Find My Site?
There are basically three ways to get your site listed in a search engine:
- Submit your site directly to the search engine using a free submit form.
- Let the search engine find your site through links to your site from other sites such as directories. (see link building)
Our site submission services will speed up the process of your site being discovered, specially if it is a new site or you do not have any (or many) links.
There are many free search engines and directories that have been around for a while and have high Google Pageranks. From our experience with search engine optimisation and site submission, we have determined a number of these that can significantly help your search engine rankings – as they have high PageRanks and are indexed frequently (and in depth) by Search Engines.
There is usually little point in submitting your site to hundreds or thousands of different search engines and directories (and in fact indiscriminate or automated submission can actually negatively impact your rankings). WebConsulting.com.au will submit your site to some of the most important and widely used directories and search engines – including Google, Yahoo, Windows Live and DMOZ.
Depending on the products or services you are offering there may also be specialist directories or search engines that target your potential site visitors – we will also look at submitting your site to any relevant specialist services.
Finally, there are also fee based directories(many of which will not help your ranking), that should be considered as part of a paid inclusion campaign.
