What's the best way to have your website included in all search engines free?

Website is created. Domain is purchased. When i type my dot com address into the address bar my site comes up but if i do it into google or any other search engine, nada…

What are the best ways to get free advertising in the search engines , particularly google since google is the search engine most people use and are familiar with.

I think that is not enough for your web site to be indexed by search engines. That will not bring you any profit.
You’d better concentrate on getting better positions there.

It is best to rank for some keywords that get some traffic. Paying for advertising can get very expensive. The best way to rank is to get links to your site on the appropriate keywords. It will be more time consuming to get that setup, but it will last much longer than any advertising that your pay for.

First step is to get indexed and all you need for that is a link on a page/site that is index. Google will eventually find it.

TM, Thanks for your response and it sounds real good but I’m afraid I’m not really understanding what you saying. I’m new to all this.

So how do i get indexed?

Do i put keywords in my website and if so, where? I have a site map and was told this was good. Also I was sent an article by a webmaster that says that keywords aren’t used that often anymore and are not really that necessary to be included in the major search engines nowadays.

How do i get links to my site?

I’m so new to this - you have no idea…

But I’m here to learn so please be patient with me if I don’t catch on the first time.

If someone told you that keywords aren’t used any more, they were probably referring to a keyword meta tag, which would be “<meta name=“keywords” Content=“green widgets,blue widgets”>” put in the <head> section of your page. They are right that they aren’t used any more, but it won’t hurt to put that in your page.

Basically, you need to figure out what keywords/phrases you want to rank for and customize the content on each page to rank for that. If you want to rank for “green widgets”, you should have that in your title, in the meta keywords tag and several places on your page, but not too many places.

After you have your site developed with good content and targeting the keywords that you want, you need to work on getting links. Good places to start are social boomarking sites, web directory sites, article sites, forums, among many other possibilites. So you’ll need to create accounts on social bookmarking sites. Submit your site to web directories. Write some related articles. Post on forums with a good signature. … You will want to get links to your site on the phrase “green widgets”

There are lots of other things to do depending on the type of site you have. If it is a blog, you will want to exchange blogroll links with related sites, etc.

Hope that helps.

Well here’s my “personal” experience with my websites.

I have had them uploaded to the internet since last year, so i just kinda let them sit there not doing much. So Google picked up and indexed a few pages for some keyword phrases. That was without the pages being advertised ANYWHERE, no links to them what so ever. All i did was submit the sites to Google, and that was it. I don’t even have a site map for them yet!! Getting to it … I just left it alone. lol.

Lately i have been adding more content to them and updating them, so Im waiting for Google to give me higher search results within the next few weeks hopefully.

So first, submit to the search engines on their home pages for free.

Second, i have now started joining places like Squidoo and Hubpages and article writing etc, which is taking alot of my time, but i dont want any quick fixes. I want to do it all properly, legitimately, and honestly. So they link back to my websites via me including my website links. I’ve only just started this, early days yet. Though i can say that Google indexed my Hubpages hub in the number one spot in just 2 hours after writing it!!! :open_mouth:

So im just plodding along with organic search engine results, and some backlinks to my sites with time and effort on my part.

I’m not up to anything more aggressive at this stage as I’m still adding content to the sites. No point if it’s not complete really.

You can submit them directly to the search engines first:




Once you have done this it’s also good to get some quality inbound links to your site from highly indexed sites - forums are great.

awesome. Thanks so much for those links Mike

Do you think submitting my webpages via facebook and twitter will get me indexed eventually?

Facebook obfuscates the URLs on their site so probably not but Twitter would probably work but keep in mind that even if you have 100,000 links from Twitter it will only count as 1 outbound link (from twitter.com) or at least that is my experience.

Submit your website to search engines only ONCE :smiley:
Good luck

Better yet, don’t submit them at all, and get a couple of links from sites that are already indexed. Without links to your site, you’re not going to rank high in the search engines anyway.

Why to promote free other websites? Why not to stick with own website?

That comment makes no sense - how does getting links to your site from other sites promote those other sites?

Without lots of links to your site from other related sites the search engines will put your site at the bottom of the results where no one will see it anyway.

With lots of links to your site from other related sites the search engines will list your site without you needing to submit it.

We do not subscribe to this viewpoint. We beg to differ on this issue.

Search engine results are mostly based on keywords and content of the webpage.

I so wish my competitors would have the same philosophy. It would make things so much easier, and let us all focus on improving content, and content only.

PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page’s value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves “important” weigh more heavily and help to make other pages “important”.

So if I submit my website in some popular forums this will get me google air time?:slight_smile:

It can do the job, but not in all of them. This forum for example uses “nofollow” in signature links, so the link has no weight SEO wise.

Thanks ldcdc.

Found the perfect forum to link through then found out members w/ less than 15 comments can’t make links. Gotta talk fast lol.

Thanks for this tip though. Gonna choose my forums carefully though. No sense in placing it where it’s obviously not needed or useless.

or considered spam
