    You have to submit to the Open Directory: http://www.dmoz.org

    be careful though, I was listed by my url and had a rank of 5/10 for my main page. I then tried to get listed in the correct category but they dropped my hole site from any type of listing :-(

    dang, vSector, I know that was not very pleasing.

    Since google doesn't index by keywords how can I get ranked under certain keywords?

    Google indexes all visible text on your page (unless your page is a behemoth in length). It also indexes all the words on the pages linking to you. Especially those words in the link pointing to your site.

    Using these findings it ranks your site for various search terms accordingly. You will be ranking under any term that you have on your site. How high you are ranked will be determined by how many incoming links you have, and especially the text found within those incoming links.

    So, to get ranked higher on Google, you need people to link to you using your keywords like this:

    <a href = "yoursite.com">keywords</a>
