    Generally how long does it take before one's site will show up in the search engine rankings?

    I submitted my site about 4 weeks ago and still have not found any mention of it on any of the major search engines.

    Is there any online service that will check various engines for your link to be listed somewhere within them?

    thanks,
    Sparkie

    It varies between engines. Altavista and Infoseek/go usually have your site listed within 48 hours or so. Places like hotbot take around 2 weeks, other vary from time to time. Generally you will be listed within 4 weeks of submission.

    Dont forget though, if you used a auto-submitter then you may not get listed at all. Alot of the major search engines now have these programs blocked off and do not list sites submitted using some of these programs.

    Always submit your site manually to the top 20 or so engines. Then auto-submit to everything else.

    Check out www.searchenginewatch.com for heaps of information on search engines to get ya started.
