If you are just setting up your new website, you may wondering what is the best way to get your pages into the search engines. Should you be manually submitting your website to search engines? Should you use a paid submission service?
Well, none of the above.
The truth is you’ll be wasting your time and money, and if your SEO submission company indulges in any shady practices, you risk your site being marked and exiled by Google for spamming!
And once your site makes it into the handful of top Search Engines – which happens quickly, if you know how to use keywords and optimize your blog or static site properly – the smaller search engines find out about it anyway. Paying good money is not worth the “benefit” you might reap from an SEO submission company submitting your sites to smaller search engines – proportionately, these smaller search engines stacked against the big guns like Google, MSN and Yahoo are roughly about the size of a flea on a large-sized dog.
So What’s the Best Way To ‘Submit’ A New Website To Google (and other search engines)
This tip comes from one of the best keyword/SEO experts I know – and I’ve been using this method whenever I set up a new site for myself or my clients.
“The best way to get your site into Google is by linking to it from a site that has decent PageRank.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, that’s perfectly ok. If you can follow these simple instructions you’ll get into Google within a week and often within 24 hours. Here’s the step-by-step:
- Write a 300 word article about something related to your website.
- Submit that article to EzineArticles.com (PageRank 6) or GoArticles.com (also a PageRank 6).
- Make sure when you fill out the about the author box you link back to your site.
- For maximum effectiveness, submit one article to EzineArticles.com, and another entirely different article to GoArticles.com.
If you go through that simple process, Google will follow your links from those sites to your site and will ‘index’ it, which means they will then include it in the SERPs.
Guys every time I do it this way it works. Some of you may think that this doesn’t really make sense, in fact whenever I have mentioned this in the past I always get people asking me why Google would have a submission utility if it didn’t work well. I don’t know and I don’t care. I don’t spend my time trying to figure out why Google does what they do. I spend it figuring what they do, end of story. This lesson will help you to get into Google more effectively and by all means, don’t take my word for it, test it out yourself.”
