    Website search question

    How do you get a website onto search engines. I have a website that is now live and I want to get it onto Google, Yahoo, Bing and other search engines.

    Does anyone have experience with this? Is it easy to do?

    Great question. I need to find additional ways to increase my website's search results as well.

    Re: Website search question

    Some search engines you can submit your site directly to a directory (yahoo! used to have this, they may still).

    The thing though is you have to understand about search engines. There are things called crawlers which visit every link on pages and index the web. Google is kind of based on an algorithm that looks at how many pages link to one page. So for example, TONS of pages link to ESPN.com, so if you look for something, ESPN.com is going to be at the top of your results for a reason.

    I would make good use of META tags (HTML) which tell the crawlers how to index your pages. This site is good and they make a good point that META tags are not magic, but they help

    Also, if you have a business, look into Google AdWords.


    I would start though by submitting your page to this directory: http://www.dmoz.org/
    Then doing the whole META HTML tag thing and reading into that a little bit.
