Website Submission - What You May Not Know About Search Engine Indexing
Getting your website listed in the search engines is relatively easy if you submit it, but even if you don't you can still get your website indexed by the larger search engines by following a few simple tips. The reason for this is the search engines spiders search the web on a daily basis looking for new websites to index, old ones that are no longer valid, and the like. So, if you follow these simple steps, the search engines spiders will pick up your website and index it without you even having to submit it. As a matter of fact, you will generally see your website appear in the search engines faster by simply using other methods to get listed instead of submitting your URL. Follow these suggestions and the spiders will pick up your site when they are out making their rounds.
Tip #1 - Links
Links to your web page on the Internet basically tell the search engines how popular your website is. So, if you have tons of links, your website will be considered very popular and as a result be ranked well with the search engines. The fewer links you have makes your site less popular so if you want the search engines to index your site without submitting it, make sure you have a lot of websites linking to you.
Tip #2 - Keywords
Keywords are another thing the search engines look for and you'll want to include them on your website. The more relevant keywords you have on your website in meta tags, titles, and the beginnings of paragraphs, the quicker your site will get ranked well for your desired search phrases.
Tip #3 - No Frames
If you really want the search engines to pick up your site without you having to submit it, you better be sure you have a website that does not use frames. The reason for this is that websites using frames create problems for the search engines and a lot of times the site is not recognized, not to mention indexed. Avoid frames at all costs because the search engines hate them... there really is no use for them.
Tip #4 - Fully Constructed
You will also need to make sure that your website is fully constructed with no pages still under construction or waiting to be completed. You may not get indexed by the search engines with an "under construction" website because they only want to index complete web sites that are ready for visitors.
