Get your site listed in major Search Engines and Directories

Search Engines are a very important factor concerning the traffic to your website.90%of all Internet users utilize search engines and directories in order to find something. But it may take some time until search engine submissions "bite". So, you better start to submit immediately to them.

It may take from a couple of days to several weeks or month, before you will see results. Some engines update their data base more frequently then others.

The key point: If a visitor finds you via a Search Engine you have a huge advantage: HE is looking for YOU. So you are not trying to sell something, he comes to you and wants your product.
How targeted can a visitor be? He types in a keyword, related to your product and finds you. Should be highly targeted, if you have chosen your keywords wisely.

Once you are prominently listed with the major Search Engines and Directories, you will see a continuous stream of highly targeted visitors dropping by your site and turning into customers.

The major Search Engines and Directories are:

Yahoo http://Yahoo.com ; Google: http://www.google.com
LookSmart.com http://LookSmart.com
OpenDirectory http://dmoz.org
Excite http://Excite.com
Altavista http://Altavista.com
Lycos http://Lycos.com
Infoseek http://Infoseek.com
HotBot http://HotBot.com
WebCrawler http://WebCrawler.com
NorthernLight.com http://NorthernLight.com

But wait, you will have to put special attention on the way your siteis listed on the Search Engines.

Consider the search engine listing as an Advertisement. It is not only important that your site comes up when a surfer keys in one of your keywords. The surfer has to be teased to actually click on yourlisting and visit your site.

The listing works as an ad. If your listing is a good ad, a high percentage will actually click on it and visit your site.

So, you need to invest some time playing around with different wordings. Youhave to show the surfer in a few words, what is in for him or her.

If you do a good job, you will be rewarded with thousands of free visitors. And they will be targeted, eager to buy your product or service.

Does anyone know how to advertise a personal web site with little or no cost that drives quality customers? I have operated a couple web sites for almost a year. Tried advertising in my local paper. Listing to free classified ads. Listed to major search engines. Also perform surfing sites to cause traffic to be sent to my sites. So far, I have only had a few sales. Does anyone have any ideas they can suggest at little or no cost to me? I am looking for quality potential customers rather than just more traffic. My sites are set up with huge discounts to attract sales. Please help. Thank you.

Getting traffic is a combination of a lot of things. The key to success is to create great content that visitors want to use, search engines will love and other websites will naturally link to. Of course, it's easier said than done.

You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com

Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement - if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important -- and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more - that's additional traffic that you get for FREE!

Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com's "Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day." http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm


4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

http://www.prleap.com/sign_up.html
http://i-newswire.com/
http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/
http://www.pressbox.co.uk/cgi-bin/links/add.cgi

http://www.theopenpress.com/
http://www.przoom.com/
http://www.prweb.com
http://www.newswiretoday.com/
http://www.free-press-release.com/

5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_ylt=AhzreGmnCUicOoyedqypscUjzKIX?qid=1006022407481

6. Post a link to your site for free where it is allowed (always read the Terms of Use). Examples are:

Craigslist http://www.craigslist.com
Google Base http://base.google.com
Classifieds for Free http://www.classifiedsforfree.com/...
Text Link Exchange http://www.txtswap.com/

1. Add content
Add content, add content, and add content. Before you even register your domain, you should have enough ideas to build 100 pages on your site. Start brainstorming and see what you can come up with in 10 minutes. If that's not enough to fill 50 pages, consider not building the site at all. Having lots of content is important.

2. A simple design is better
Text content should outweigh the html content. Stay away from heavy flash, java, JavaScript, etc. Don't add to much stuff like 'best viewed with'... Your website should be viewable with any browser. Keep it clean and professional.

3. Keep the pages small
Smaller is better. Keep it under 15k if you can. Your site should be fast loading, or people will leave. Speed is everything. Next to content, that is. Keep it under 10k or 5k if you can. Difficult, but people love fast sites. Throw away all the trash on your pages.

4. Content length
Put a new page online every day of about 200 to 500 words. Go to the overture keyword suggester to find ideas of what to write about. Spell checks your content. Search engines can do it, and so should you. If you have a blog, go for article-like posts as opposed to the personal diary kinds of posts.

5. Use keywords
Use your keywords in the following places: title, description tag, heading, url, once bold, once italic and once high on the page.

6. Link to other sites
Put 2 links to other, high ranking pages on your site. They should be relevant to the content of that page and use keywords as your link. Don't add every link that's requested. Check their relevance first.

7. Link to your own site
Put links from one page to other relevant pages on your own site. Again: use keywords as your link.

8. Submit your site
Submit your site to Google, AltaVista, Yahoo, Msn, Hotbot, etc. Then forget about that for 6 months. Also submit it to every single directory you can find. Do a check after 6 months and resubmit if you're not listed.

9. Log and track
Most hosts provide these. Don't use a lame graphic counter. Check where your visitors are coming from to find out what traffic methods work best for your site.

10. Write for people
People are not coming to your site for your content. They are coming for their content. Try to write as if you are writing to one specific person, such as a friend of yours who's interested in the same topic. Don't try to write for 'all of your visitors'.

11. Stay ahead
If you know that something big will come out in a few months, build a page about it now. It gives search engines time to index that page so they can feed it to the growing anticipating crowd.

12. Add more content
This is so important: keep adding content. Do this for a year and your site will be a top ranking website within one year. You could've been there now, if you started last year. So start now, so you'll be there next year. You'll thank yourself (and me) later.

You can submit your site to these major sites yourself. But to rank at the top, you need to advertise it. You can try Google Adwords. It?s the most effective and targeted way of Advertising.

How can I receive more traffic to my website? We recently created a forum to give us something to do, its still in a crude form of what we want it to be though. We do hope by receiving more members it will help our site branch into other areas not just on the forum. Its www.flamepay.com and I'm hoping you guys have good methods so the site can become more popular. And I've added the url to all major search engines only a few days ago.

What's the best and most reliable way to get lots of traffic on a web site? I want to build a web-store for my own products as well as some friends of mine. I know how to make the stuff and build the site. Now. How do I let everyone know where we are? Newspapers? Magazines? Search engines (how do I get listed on those anyway?)? Banner ads? What are some really good (creative) ways to get the word out? And if you can tell me how search engines work and how I can get them to pick me out of a crowd, I'd appreciate it! Thanks people!

The most effective way to advertise on the Internet is
to first set up a website and publish its domain name
on major search directories such as Google.com,
Yahoo.com [at http://www.google.com/addurl/?...... and
MSN.com since 85% of Internet shoppers rely on these
search directories to provide them with goods and
services. In a sense, these search directories are a
very large Internet Yellow Pages.

Nevertheless, should your website or opening webpage
fail to contain "generic" keywords, then anyone using
such "generic" queries will not be able to discover
your website. Your domain name [URL] of your website,
in a sense, will be invisible, undiscoverable.

You may want to consider some simple algorithms which,
when observed and committed in designing of a website
with placement of various critical metatags that can
surely achieve a high search engine presence and
increase Internet traffic to your website. These
metatag strategies work well with published webpages
at Google and Yahoo.

Design: Should you create an extensive Flash-based
website, make sure to fill-in the property entries
such as the Title, Description and Keywords. Failing
to do so, leaves no hard HTML or ALT resource that can
be readily indexed by search robots. Also consider the
Internet audience and their incoming setup. For
example, if they are on analog/dialup, Flash webpages
take too long to load up and therefore analog users
will likely lose interest and discontinue entering the
Flash site. On the other hand, anyone on hi-speed DSL
lines, will welcome Flash pages which load quickly. So
before designing a pure Flash websitge, ask the simple
question, "Who's my end user - is he on dialup or
DSL?" And if you had to choose between these two users
for maximum marketability, then select analog users
since 80% of most resident users are still analog
Internet subscribers and pure HTML designed webpages
is best for them.

A non-Flash-based website which relies on hard text,
is far easier to be indexed by search robots. Limit
the use of stylized text saved as .gifs since as a
graphic, they are not indexable by search robots.

Avoid use of frames since any number of search robots
are unable to properly classify textual material.

Placement of Metatags:

A ranking or search order does take place with Google
and Yahoo and it begins with the "Title" metag which
should consist of no more than 65 characters separated
by commas. The "Title" should describe in generic
terms, the goods and services, followed by a location
from which the resource is located, i.e., city, state.
The placement of a domain name which is not generic
within the "Title" is not appropriate, unless your
domain name is a major recognizable brand name.

The second metatag is the "Description" which is
usually 25-30 words to form a complete sentence which
best describes one's goods and services.

And the very last category - "Keywords" are also
somewhat limited to 15-16 words which can be plural
and compound in nature. Again, avoid multiple entries
which could be mistaken as "spamdexed entries" which
is defined as the loading, and submission of
repetitive words into a particular metatag category.
"Spamdexing" when discovered on a webpage and reported
to Google's spamreport.com can result in the
elimination of your website from their search
directory.

Good luck!

How can I put my website in search engines? I have a website slobspalace.co.uk and I'd like to know how to get it on yahoo google and msn search engine.

There are numerous things you can do to get your site higher on the search engine rankings. However, you must make sure your site actually has a purpose and some decent content. Otherwise, search engines don't really no what to categorize it under (it's got no content so it cannot be assigned a particular category).

Firstly, make sure all of your pages are validating HTML. Although, not absolutely necessary I would do this just to make sure the search bots can read it properly.

Then, put meta tags with a description of approximately 50-100 words on each page which briefly describes what the page has on it and its purpose. Also put keyword meta tags and include about 30-40 words that fit to your page. For example, don't include the keyword "flowers" if your page is about computers. Although, this sounds obvious there are countless sites which think if they stick in thousands upon thousands of keywords they will get a higher ranking. They don't. After about the 50th keyword, most search bots ignore the rest. Also, I think I'm right in saying that if the keywords don't relate in one way to the content of the page they ignore them too.

Then, make sure each page is quite short. This is firstly so that readers don't get bored reading pages and pages of text but also because the more pages you have linked, the higher your ranking (the search engines know more of your site).

Another important tip is the TITLE of your page. Make sure it has the main keyword for the page in it near the beginning. But also make sure it isn't 50+ characters and contains thousands of keywords.

Make sure all of your images have ALTernate tags which are a short description of what the image is. However, if you're clever you would somehow incorporate one or two of your keywords into this description without making it sound like your marketing your site.

Submit your website to all of the major search engines and, most importantly, dmoz.org. Many major search engines use this human-developed directory to gather sites from. There are numerous tools on the Web for submitting your site to 100s of search engines. Use these tools but set up a new e-mail account, say a Hotmail one, which you use when submitting (if needed). Then when you're finished you can just leave the account for 30 days and it will close itself down. (This is so you don't get spam.)

Make sure your site is linked from other sites. If your pages have really great content, it is inevitable that people will link to it from their sites. Do yourself a favour and link back to theirs -- it's only courteous. To find out pages that are linked to yours in Google, you type link: yourdomain.com. The more links you have going to your site, the higher search engines will rank you. A good idea would be to become part of a link exchange where if you promise to link to someone else's site, they will link to yours.

You should choose a single keyword which describes your site or particular page and try to include this as the very first word on the page. The trick is to include your main keywords as many times as possible in your BODY text while still making it perfectly readable for your, well, er, readers.

Once you have interesting content, you are listed in the major search engines and people are linking to you, you are almost guaranteed to rise to the top of the ranking. There are many more other tips you could follow but I think I've covered most of the main ones here.

Just please don't have any advertisements or pop-ups on your site if you can. If it's a personal site, have a PayPal (or some other money system) set up on your site so people can donate money towards hosting costs or whatever. This way, if people like your content they are more inclined to donate money to you. One more thing: make your pages interesting to your readers -- you don't want it to sound like marketing druel. Basically, the motto is "if you're site has interesting content, you will receive visitors".


* Have your website address listed on your business cards, stationery, in fact anywhere on a tangible item
* Have your website address (URL) in a decal on your car
* Trade your website URL with like businesses (reciprocal linking)
* Add your URL to online business directories ? there are many free ones out there. DMOZ.org is a good place to start.
* Have a look at your current website content. Has it changed in the last few years? Could it be made better in readability and prime keywords?
* Write articles and submit them, to online ezines
* Could your site benefit from a Blog or Forum?
* Constantly review you search engine rankings and market your site accordingly.
* Use your domain email address and not an ISP address
* Join online business groups
* Have a Newsletter sign up facility on your website and send out regular (monthly/quarterly) e-newsletters
* Do you buy products from another online business? If so, share reciprocal links.
* Take time to see what your competition is doing online. What is working from them and try implementing the same kind of ideas.

How long does it take for organic traffic to start hitting your site? My site has been out for close to two months now. Does it take a long time to start seeing major organic searches?

Rob

Admin 05.10.2009. 09:10

Fist of all, 2 months is not really much time for a site to be online and to start getting any kind of organic traffic, you should be thinking in the 3, 4, 5 -month ballpark before it starts kicking in. Google will probable take longer-- Yahoo and Bing, somewhat less.

As far as getting "major organic searches", it's going to take more than just time for that to happen. Here at Metapilot, we often get asked this question by new site owners. Besides time, you need to be investing resources into your site's content, optimization, back links and analytics in order for the site to start paying you back with traffic.

In order to make sure things are on the right track at this point, here are a few things you look at:

First, do the following search in Google, Yahoo, and Bing:
site:mydomain.com (replace mydomian.com with your domain name without the www).

Notice if all of the pages you've created on your site are listed in the results of each of those searches. If not, ensure that your site is not all in flash, that your navigation is not in flash or JavaScript, that your default page is not completely in Flash, and work on getting some decent links to your site.

Do each of the pages that show up in the site:mydomain.com search contain unique snippets (the snippet is the link and the description that is listed for each page)? If not, edit each of your pages' html to include a unique title tag and meta description tag that is relevant specifically to it's specific page.

Does the URL (web page address) that shows up for each listing in the site:mydomain.com search include the www or not? if not, you may have canonicalization issues to address. Go to Google webmaster tools and select your preferred domain, make sure that links to your homepage from within your site all point to your preferred domain, make sure that your designer used your preferred domain when linking to your site from their portfolio, and verify that any directory or other links you've been building are also pointing to your preferred domain.

Make sure that you've submitted your site through each of the search engine's local/maps interfaces and that you've submitted it to the Yellow Pages, Citysearch, local.com, Superpages.com, and Insiderpage.com

After doing all of that, focus on keyword research, building content pages focused around your keyword research, and on link building.

Does anyone know how to get placed in the top 10 results on search engines without paying a SEO company? I have just launched my payroll business and submitted my website to many search engines and directories. I know that using links and good keywords are very important. When I do a search for my company name, it appears on the 1st page which is great but when I enter a keyword I can't find myself. Any input would be GREATLY appreciated!

"Spamdexing" when discovered on a webpage and reported
to Google's spamreport.com can result in the
elimination of your website from their search
directory.

Here's an example of a very highly-placed website on
Google.com: Begin with the very "generic" search query
"sandwiches downtown los angeles," taking note to not
abbreviate Los Angeles to "LA" and of course, leave
out the parentheses ("). It will bring up some 2.4
million+ search results. Check out where "Nazos.net"
is ranked. It's on the FIRST FRONT PAGE [ranked #5]!
Again, Nazos.net's high web presence was achieved by
proper web design and placement of relevant metatags
according to Google's publication guidelines.

Good luck!

What is the best way for a new business to get its website listed by the major search engines on the cheap? I am starting a new business and need to get the word out about my website but I cannot afford pay-per-click advertising (or any other fee-based advertising). What can I get for no money?

I am not necessarily asking for "something for nothing" as I am willing to invest some sweat-equity into the effort.

The most effective way to advertise on the Internet is to first set up a website and publish its domain name on major search directories such as Google.com, Yahoo.com [at http://www.google.com/addurl/?...... and MSN.com since 85% of Internet shoppers rely on these search directories to provide them with goods and services. In a sense, these search directories are a very large Internet Yellow Pages.

Nevertheless, should your website or opening webpage fail to contain "generic" keywords, then anyone using such "generic" queries will not be able to discover your website. Your domain name [URL] of your website, in a sense, will be invisible, undiscoverable.

You may want to consider some simple algorithms which, when observed and committed in designing of a website with placement of various critical metatags that can surely achieve a high search engine presence and increase Internet traffic to your website. These metatag strategies work well with published webpages at Google and Yahoo.

Design: Should you create an extensive Flash-based website, make sure to fill-in the property entries such as the Title, Description and Keywords. Failing to do so, leaves no hard HTML or ALT resource that can be readily indexed by search robots. Also consider the Internet audience and their incoming setup. For example, if they are on analog/dialup, Flash webpages take too long to load up and therefore analog users will likely lose interest and discontinue entering the Flash site. On the other hand, anyone on hi-speed DSL lines, will welcome Flash pages which load quickly. So before designing a pure Flash websitge, ask the simple question, "Who's my end user - is he on dialup or DSL?" And if you had to choose between these two users for maximum marketability, then select analog users since 80% of most resident users are still analog Internet subscribers and pure HTML designed webpages is best for them.

A non-Flash-based website which relies on hard text, is far easier to be indexed by search robots. Limit the use of stylized text saved as .gifs since as a graphic, they are not indexable by search robots.

Avoid use of frames since any number of search robots are unable to properly classify textual material.

Placement of Metatags:

A ranking or search order does take place with Google and Yahoo and it begins with the "Title" metag which should consist of no more than 65 characters separated by commas. The "Title" should describe in generic terms, the goods and services, followed by a location from which the resource is located, i.e., city, state. The placement of a domain name which is not generic within the "Title" is not appropriate, unless your domain name is a major recognizable brand name.

The second metatag is the "Description" which is usually 25-30 words to form a complete sentence which best describes one's goods and services.

And the very last category - "Keywords" are also somewhat limited to 15-16 words which can be plural and compound in nature. Again, avoid multiple entries which could be mistaken as "spamdexed entries" which is defined as the loading, and submission of repetitive words into a particular metatag category. "Spamdexing" when discovered on a webpage and reported to Google's spamreport.com can result in the elimination of your website from their search directory.

Here's an example of a very highly-placed website on Yahoo.com: Begin with the search query "pizza downtown los angeles." It will bring up some 1.4 million+ websites as results. Check out where "Pizza Next Door" is ranked. It's in the Top Five! Again, Pizza Next Door's high web presence was achieved by proper web design and placement of relevant metatags according to Yahoo's publication guidelines.

Good luck!

What is the best way to advertise a web site? Im asking because I have set up a web site to raise awareness of a medical condition and despite being on google hits are slow. We are working towards getting charity status so funds are limited until we get funding. Does anyone have any ideas or information on charities or organisations that give funding for marketing to raise awareness. Thank you.

Hello,

The most effective way to advertise online on the internet is to first setup a website and publish its domain name in major search directories like Google, yahoo and msn. More than 80% of users rely on these search directories to provide them with goods and services. These search engines and directories can also be termed as very large internet yellow pages....

6 Ways To Advertise A Website

*1. Advertise a website is by the means of a paid-per-click campaign on Adwords or on Overture. This provides targeted traffic and is a good way to advertise a website, however it may get costly, especially if you have a lot of competition in your market or if your conversion ratio is low. Advertising a website like this might not be the best way, but it?s a fast and easy way.

*2. Advertise a website is with e-mail marketing. You should find someone in your niche that owns an e-mail list, and then offer him or her 50% of the profits generated when you send an advertisement to this person?s list. Advertising a website this way is free and you can receive many visitors quickly.

*3. Advertise a website is by the means of linking. It might not get you too much traffic, but if you create a strong Internet presence people will know about your website and you will have done proper marketing. Website advertising this way is also good.

*4. Advertise a website is with offline newspaper ads or billboard ads. This also costs, but if your website is of interest to people living in your city or region, it might be very profitable.

*5. Advertise a website is by being present in forums and discussion boards that talk about what you have to offer. You should then leave your website link in your signature each time you post and you can also leave your link in your signature when you send e-mails.

*6. And the best way to advertise a website is with search engine marketing. The reason this is the best way of advertising your website is because it provides you with free targeted traffic.

good luck....

regards,
Raom.
