    I have repeatedly submitted my web page to several search engines and submission services over the past few weeks, but have not had any success despite numerous attempts. I only get an e-mail claiming that my entry was submitted, but I can not find my site anywhere when I type keywords in the search engine dialog box.

    What should I do in order to be successful in having my site successfully promoted?

    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    [Please send replies to my e-mail address if not too inconvenient: johnrand@bellsouth.net]

    Thanks -
    Randy

    If you continually submit you probably won't have any success and will more than likely find that the search engines will ban your site.

    It usually takes a search engine anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months to index your site. Submit once and be patient.

    Hi,

    Basically, in order to be found in the first 20 or 30 on the major search engines, some of your pages must be optimized for the keywords that are related to your website.

    Hope this helps...

    I had my site submitted to Altavista and about 30 others, and it took less than a month before I saw my site appear when I typed 'emudreams' but I couldn't find my site on just keywords either.
