Submit Your URL To Search Engines
In my last article on how to submit your url to Google – manually, I talked about how to submit your new website or blog to Google without the use of automated software or a service. Manual submissions are easy to do and they do get your sites added to the index — you just can’t totally be sure how quickly they will be added.
That’s why today I want to talk about how to submit your url to search engines (including Google) using a system that will get your websites listed quickly and in many cases in only a few hours!
Let me quickly explain the relationship between the search engines. First, Google as much as many marketers hate to admit it, “rules the roost”. They dominate the search engine marketplace and most if not all of the search engines derive their search engine results based on Google’s results. Now that is not to say that you will not see some search engine result differences between the top 3 – Google, Yahoo, and Bing. You will – but the bottom line is if you submit your site to Google, the other two biggies as well as all the other search engine small fries out there will index your site as well.
Now while I did submit my first url to search engines manually, after that I no longer had to submit to them directly, especially because they really like it if they find your new site on their own. Okay – so how would a search engine like Google find your site if you don’t tell them about it? You LEAD them to it like a horse to water.
If you have a relationship with an established website, one that is indexed and especially one that is updated frequently, you can LEAD Google to your website by getting a backlink on one of these websites.
When Google goes to crawl that website, they will run across the link to your site, recognize that it is “new” and list it in their index.
This is much easier to do then it has been in the past. The real secret is to make sure that you link from a site that permits DoFollow links. The first place to start is if you already have your own website. If you do, you can just link to your new site from your existing site and you should be indexed pretty quickly.
Another great place to submit your url to search engines quickly, is to one of the article directories on my high-ranking DoFollow Article Directory List. Add a link to your new site in the resource box and you should be good to go. Especially if the directory is highly trafficked. Google typically crawls these sites daily.
Before I had established sites, I would backlink to my new sites through guest authoring at well-established, high-trafficked websites. This not only got my sites indexed but also created immediate SEO value for my site. Guest posting or guest blogging would be my #1 way for naturally getting your new site ranked and your urls submitted to the search engines.
You can get your new site crawled and indexed in the search engines faster by establishing a link connection to a site which is already indexed – especially one that is important to the search engines (traffic, pagerank, age).
