Next, submit your homepage URL to the
important Web search engines that robotically index the Web. Look for a link on
the search engine for "Add Your URL." In the US, the most used search engines
are: Google, Yahoo, MSN, AOL Search, and Ask.com.
Some of these feed search content to the other main search engines and portal
sites. For Europe and other areas you'll want to submit to regional search
engines. It's a waste of money to pay someone to submit your site to hundreds
of search engines. Avoid registeringwith FFA (Free For All pages) and other
link farms. They don't work well, bring you lots of spam e-mails, and could
cause you to be penalized by the search engines. We'll talk about submitting to
directories under "Linking Strategies" below. If your page is already indexed
by a search engine, don't re-submit it unless you've made significant changes;
the search engine spider will come back and revisit it soon anyway.
