Search Engine Submission- Don?t be a cheapskate!

Submitting your website to the main search engines should be handled with care. Do it right, and the rewards can be great.

Webmaster Beware- Submitting your website to the major search engines too often can get your website banned completely from those all important major search engines, like Google, MSN, Yahoo and Alta Vista.

Let's face it, everyone wants the coveted top position in their respective category on all the major search engines. Getting there requires a lot of tweaking of your meta tags, reciprocal linking to sites with high page ranks, and of course submitting your site to the search engines, either manually or utilizing a service to do it for you.

Submitting your site manually is a long a tedious operation, often requiring more time than you had planned on spending just to submit to 30 or less search engines. Submitting your site manually is not recommended.

Using a free service to submit your site is the next option you have for getting your site to the internet. The only problem with this method is that you get listed on only a few engines and, you sacrifice your email address to spam gods and become a part of the millions of poor souls who can never get any rest from the nasty spam vermin that will prey on you for the rest of your natural born life. In addition, it becomes very hard to track how often you have submitted your site to the search engines in the first place.

Using a qualified submission service is the most obvious choice here. There are a lot of services out there with offers like "Submit your site to 500,000 search engines and directories for only $39.95", the real problem with this is there are not even remotely close 500,000 qualified search engines out there, so that means that 99% of your submissions are going to what is know as FFA (Free-for-All) directories. These are NOT where you want to be, besides the fact that you are now in the dreaded worldwide spammers database, your site is listed on directories that get little or no respectable traffic and you have been taken for $39.95. These types of submission services are a dime a dozen on the internet and you should steer clear of any such ridiculous offers or claims.

The reputable companies will give you a clear and concise description of their services. They will break it down for you with information like as follows:

? Which engines they specifically submit to.

? A written guarantee not to share your personal information.

? Make no outrageous claims to submission to hundreds of thousands of engines.

? They will disclose all of they're contact information so that you may contact them by phone or other means.

? They will provide you with a detailed report via email on your submission results, including who your site was submitted to and the disposition of your submission.

If you want a proper submission for your website, you are going to have to pay for it. There are too many quality submission services to list in this article but we have a good list you can review on our website at BullMarketer.com. Look under the "Weblinks" directory, under search engine submission. We have a high Google page rank, quality traffic, and lots of link back to our site and I can promise you it all started with the use of a quality submission service.

Good luck with your life, love, health, and of course, your website submission.
