    whats the best way for search engine submissions?

    I want to know how do you submit to search engines?

    I am new to internet marketing and from recent research there seems to be a number of ways of search engine submisssion

    1. submit manually
    2. Buy a seo software that submits to all search engines
    3. Pay for a service to do the submission for you

    Which is the best and most reliable method? I dont know much about seo but from reading some forums, it seems there are some techniques that should be avoided.

    Uhhmm... are you talking about directory submission or search engine submission?

    it's not necessary to submit to search engines to get indexed anymore, they do that automatically when they find your site. but it won't hurt to submit your sitemap either.

    as for directories, you can do that yourself, although it's mind numbing and time consuiming. or you could hire someone to do it for you. or there's a number of software available out there that will do it automatically.

    hope that helps.
    cheers

    Submit your site manually to Google, Yahoo, and MSN Live Search. Although they will index your site once you have relevant backlinks, it may take awhile for you to acquire backlinks and them to follow them to your site. Your can pay someone to do it for you, but submission to all three takes about 10 minutes.

    As far as directory submissions, again you can pay someone. However many directories charge a fee. You may want the option to submit to some of these as well as the free ones. Moreover, you may find a niche market that better suits your site that a paid service may miss.

    Don't use automated software. If the SEs find out that you are, they may either penalize your site in the rankings or remove your site from their indexes completely.

    The best way directory submission it semi-automatic submission.

    If you awake will be used ctrl+c/v mistakes much more.
    Look this flash http://www.webloganalyzer.biz/eng/allsubmitter.html

    The manual submission is the best method. You will have control over the issues like where to submit and when to submit....what to submit.

    If the seo is the main criteria, then better use the automatic tools or seo software which helps you a lot.

    Manual is the best. There are only three sites to submit to and they take only a minute each to do. It's quick, easy, and guarantees they are aware of your site. No other method can say that.

    It absolutely not agree.

    You saw that such semi-automatic submission?

    manual submission:

    1. Speed, 1-5 minutes.
    2. Quality, almost 100 %, but awake to make mistakes using ctr+c/v
    3. Very heavy work.
    4. You should remember, where registered.

    semi-automatic:

    1. Speed, 1-5 seconds.
    2. Quality, 100 %, you completely supervise process
    3. Very easily work.
    4. The program remembers.

    4 - point not really in general without programs to make


    Still pluss semi-automatic AllSubmitter.

    1. The multiwindow interface,
    2. Trained AI
    3. A choice of categories.
    4. Various variants of descriptions.
    5. Plural functions of work with bases.
    6. Reports.
    7. AI for definition of new forms.
    8. Creation of bases.
    ...

    If you can't get this right do you really think you got your website right?

    I know. I often have to take a long nap after submitting my site.

    It's so hard to remember the three major websites. That why I wrote them down on my underwear.

    Sorry but that's bull. It takes at least five minutes to set up the software with your website info. And that's after you download it and then install it. That makes this take at least as long as manual submitting if not longer.

    Quality is not 100%. Search engines hate automated tools. How do you know they don't block your submission because you use one? How do you even know it works? Because the software said so? Did you see the search engine's confirmation screen letting you know it was submitted?

    It's more work then manual submission because you have to install software and then configure it. With manual submission you don't need to install or configure anything.

    So? You submit once and never again. Resubmitting to search engines does absolutely nothing so remembering is useless.


    Nice try through

    3 easy , but 1000 directories or 100 articles sites how to remember? No.

    And if you have found a little bit new site in a month? Remember? No.

    > Quality is not 100 %. Search engines hate automated tools.
    Seriously they I block Internet Explorer? No.

    Look semi-automatic a mode. Flash Example.

    Semi-Automatic not equally automatic submission.

    > It's more work then manual submission because you have to install software and then configure it. With> manual submission you do not need to install or configure anything.

    With the program you can be registered in 1000 directories in the Manual mode having spent on it 8 hours.

    Pay attention!!! - using usual browser IE, but with some opportunities.

    And using the same browser weeks will be necessary to you. And it is very heavy.

    > So? You submit once and never again. Resubmitting to search engines does absolutely nothing so> remembering is useless.

    Yes it is correct - once.

    But if you today have found 10 directories, tomorrow 20 in a month still.
    Remember? No.

    Awake store in a text file data about submission? No. As it is heavy to remove crossings.

    Nice try through

    This is a thread about search engine submissions. Not directory and article submissions. You are talking about something completely different.

    I have no clue what you are trying to say here. But of course they don't block Internet Explorer. It's not an automated query and submission tool.

    See above.

    You may want to try to explain this again as it makes no sense.

    I thought about directories
    Search engines should find a site.
    To add in them there is no sense.

    Sure it makes sense. By doing it you know the search engines are aware of your website. No other method guarantees that (I consider using a sitemaps.org sitemap the same as submitting your site). Since it takes less time then any other method and is the only one that includes a guarantee, I would say it makes great sense.

    Sense doubtful.

    If there are no links to your site - spider cannot find a site.

    Have added in manual, but also and the position will be very low.

    Yes it can and is faster, but what for?

    Much easier to place some external links.

    Though if the search engine small then there is a sense but then it big directory.

    What do you think submitting your site does? Hide your site?

    And of course backlinks are important. No one said they weren't. But submitting your site tells the search engine your site exists and will get you crawled. Getting your pages ranked well and crawled with more frequency are totally different subjects.

    Have you tried Google Sitemaps? It's a good way to make Google aware of your site. But I think the best way to get indexed with the search engines isn't by being submitted, but by getting an influential blogger to link to you It doesn't have to be a Technorati top 100 guy, but find someone in your niche, leave some thoughtful comments on his blog, email him, and ask for this small favor. Darren Rowse of Problogger does this kind of thing often.

    I know that to submit any site to SE is mistake.It is very simple Google to index your site. Blogspot.com-just make a blog with link to your site and max 1 day later Google will know about your site.The same is for Yahoo but with rss.

    That is awful advice. Submitting to the search engines is not a mistake. How can you say that? Plus Google is only one search engine. You;'ve completely ignored the other two major ones.

    I mentioned Yahoo - rss and put it in myYahoo. MSN somehow finds your site 1-2 days after Google did it.BUT i think that the best way is to have backlink on high PR site and all SE will find your site almost immediately.The bad news is that that cost money if you dont have such site

    Come on guys. Buy manually submitting your site to top 3 search engines, you are ensured that at least these search engines know about you. and you can do all that in a jiffy so why make fuss. you don't need to have your link in blogspot for just doing that.

    For me, MSN has always been quicker than Google.
    BUT i think that the best way is to have backlink on high PR site and all SE will find your site almost immediately
    immediately. i don't think so. Google takes it's share of time.
