:: Search Engine Promotion ::

   Search engines are very important when it comes to promoting your completed site. Almost all internet users use search engines to find what they're looking for. Why is it so important to get listed in a search engine? Search engines actively go out and "look" for new websites to document. They will place your site under certain keywords or phrases which your site pertains to. Whenever an internet user types this keyword or phrase into the search box, your website will show up somewhere on the list of hundreds of sites.

Now consider this: Millions of searches take place on the various search engines each and every day. Even if only a fraction of those searches are for your keyword, that could mean a couple thousand visits per day to your website! Now, let's say you were selling a product for $30 and only 1% of your visitors purchased. With 2000 visits per day from the search engines you'd gross $300 everyday!

So now you see why it's so important to build a website featuring your knowledge and products and to successfully submit them to the major search engines. It could mean making it or breaking it for your business. Below I've listed several key categories about search engines and what you need to do to get listed. Included in each section are links that will take you to sites that are experts for each category.


  • The internet is home to thousands of search engines. These search engines pertain to everything from countries to various categories such as hobbies, games, farming etc.

  • It would probably be a good idea for you to look for search engines that specialize in your niche and submit to those first. For example, if you have a website about Canadian Maple Syrup then you'd want to submit to Canadian search engines.

    Search Engine Directory


  • Among the thousands of search engines on the internet there are only a handful that provide the majority of visitors to your site. I guess you could say that these are the most important search engines for you to work with. If you get listed in these search engines you will get plenty of traffic from them!

    List of Major Search Engines


  • You may be looking at this category and saying to yourself, "What on earth is search engine optimization?". Search engine optimization is building your site in such a way that the search engines are able to "digest" your website information easily. For a search engine to do it's job and index your website you need to add several things to your website.

  • Search engine optimization is a big job, but it could mean the difference between being on the first page of results for your keyword or phrase and the 100th page of results. Now, if someone types in a search term at a search engine and your site comes up 111th how many people do you think will find your site let alone visit it?! You need to provide what the search engines want. Follow the links below for in depth instruction on how to optimize your website for the search engines.

    Optimization - Step by Step


  • Among the major search engines that you'll be submitting your site to, each has specific rules when it comes to submitting.

  • Not abiding by these rules that the search engines have set may keep them from indexing your site, or worse yet, may ban you from their search engine indefinately! So, it is very important to follow every rule for submitting to the search engines!

    Search Engine Submission Guide


  • There's a site on the internet that takes you by the hand and helps you optimize and submit your site to the search engines. I have used this site and find it to be very good and useful! How much does it cost you ask? Nothing! But, if you do find that their service was useful you can donate some money, but this is completely up to you.

    Submit Your Site


  • One of the best ways to learn about search engines and how they work is by visiting search engine forums. In these forums every search engine topic imagineable is discussed in great detail! Do you have a question about search engines? Just join the forum, ask your question, and a search engine expert will be sure to answer your question. I use these forums all the time and find them to be an incredible source of information!
