How To Submit Your Website

The first and one of the most important steps in promoting your site is simply submitting your website address to the big three of search engines, MSN, Yahoo and of course Google. It is actually quite easy and all but Yahoo don't even require any kind of registration!

To submit your website or blog to Google just click here, for Yahoo click here and for MSN or Bing click here! Once you have submitted your site it may take a couple weeks before these search engines will crawl your site, but trust me it is worth the wait.

Once you are indexed you will begin to see traffic trickling in from these three search engines. If you are familiar with our site then you know you can track this through Google Analytics. It shows up in the traffic sources section of Analytics. They will show up as Google Organic, Yahoo Organic and MSN Organic. You can even take it a step further and find out what people are typing into these search engines to find your site!

Some of the other search engines including ask.com do not offer site submissions and are a bit more secretive about how they crawl their sites. Your best bet on that is to follow their sitemap protocol which you can find here.

So what are you waiting for go submit your sites today and watch the traffic flow! As always here at Promoting Your Site let me know if you have any questions.

  1. thanks, I have submitted to google but not the other two and will get on it.

    I have been trying some groups on google and yahoo, joining and submitting my site and asking for comments ect ... I don't think this is doing very much and the groups are boring or weird, not worth the time.

    keep the tips coming
