    Question how to tell if site is listed/submitted?

    Hi -

    My site is about 2-3 years old. I want to make sure it is submitted to all the major search engines but aren't sure how to tell if it is already or not! Specifically, Google - how can I tell if my site is listed? It comes up all the time in search results, does that mean "it's listed??"

    I know it's listed in Yahoo because I see it in their directory, so how can I find out if it's listed in SEs that aren't a directory.

    Thanks for the input.

    Josh

    well...

    If it's showing up in the search engine then it's listed to that specific search engine, make sure the link isn't broken though

    In the search engine's search bar type : www.yoursite.com

    for example :

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i...actorpoint.com

    which shows that you are listed in google

    http://www.altavista.com/web/results...ls=1&avkw=qtrp

    wow... in altavista as well....
    and you can try the rest.

    Oh, thanks, I didn't realize it was as 'simple' as searching for your domain within the SE to discover if you listed or not.

    Thanks.

    OK. There are 2 ways to do this. Firstly, search for "YourSite.com" in the search engines. If you're listed, then you will always come up as #1 for your domain name.

    Next, choose some popular keywords for your site's topic and search for them. If you're not listed in the top 30 results then it might be time to get some optiimzation, etc happening on your web site...

    Thanks Grant. Looks like I'm off to do some searches... then most likely will need to enter the world of SE Optimization!

    I know it should be common knowlege, and probably listed in 100 different places here, but what are the Top 5-10 SE's to get listed in??

    Yahoo
    Google
    Lycos
    Excite
    Hot Bot
    AOL
    MSN
    ????
    (Ask Jeeves??!)

    And I know some of them are powered by the same results, right?

    Another thing you could do is download Copernic which searches multiple engines at once and you can see which ones you don't appear in.
