Part 11 - Time to work – Submit your website to Search Engines and Directories


This article makes part of a series of 20 articles.  The subject of this series is the creation and promotion of a website as a cost-effective method to establish a profitable home based business on the Internet.
In my previous article, “Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet – Part 9 - Create the pages that will contain the links”, I have guided you in creating the pages in your website that will contain the reciprocal links.
In this article I will help you how to choose the right web hosting company.

In my previous article, “Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet – Part 10 – Choose a web hosting company”, I have indicated to you important issues to take in consideration when choosing a company to host your webpages.

In this article I will show you what to do and what to avoid while submitting your website to Search Engines and Directories. Interesting articles on this issue can be found in my website. See in the menu "Work at Home Resources", option "Work at Home Library",  under the section "Search Engines Ranking".

Submit your website to Search Engines and Directories

Generally, the major Search Engines send their spiders once a month to crawl the web and gather the URLs and the content of as much web pages as they can. Then they process the importance and the relevance of each web page and build their databases. From these databases come the listings of the web pages, when someone makes a search.
Even though every Search Engine provides a way to submit your web pages (only the home page or a few more) for inclusion in their databases, it is better that your web pages are found from the links in other websites. This way, they examine your website, or send their spider to “fetch” your pages. If these links come from important websites of great relevance with the theme of your web pages, then they do include your website in their databases. But this takes time, usually 8 weeks, since Search Engines (the stuff behind them) do have a lot of new web pages requests for indexing to elaborate daily.

So, I suggest that you wait, regarding the major Search Engines (Google, MSN, AOL, Alltheweb, Altavista, Inktomi – Inktomi is not a Search Engine by itself. It is a database of webpages that gives its results to other search engines and directories, like Hotbot).

On the contrary I suggest that you search and find smaller Search Engines or local Search Engines and Directories, where you have to submit your web pages, since they crawl the Internet rarely. This way you will get better and quicker results.  There are programs that can accelerate this procedure of submitting to smaller Search Engines and directories. They are free, shareware or cost not much money. Use them. They include lists of smaller Search Engines and directories you will need much-much time to find about.

Time to wait - Search Engines need time to index your website

At this point the first part of your work is completed.
You have a website, comprised of the necessary web pages to function as an effective marketing tool.
You have the process to follow in order to make it popular for those in search of the product you promote.
It is properly designed to convert your visitors to customers and co-workers.

Follow my instructions. Build your link popularity.
