Submitting to search engines...

Thu Apr 13, 2006 6:52 pm

I've read lots of conflicting information as to whether or not to submit to search engines. Some say not to bother, because if your site has good, relevant content, the search engines will find you. Others say that submitting is a good thing.

So, which is it? To submit, or not to submit? Is anyone finding it to be advantageous to submit? Or not?

Thanks for reading.

If your using a blog, and it has the ability to Ping, then find a good list of sites to ping, and don't worry about submitting your blog to the search engines.

It's worth using pingomatic for letting it know you've updated your blog. But, I wouldn't worry too much about listing your new blog on search engines. MSN will actually pick it up within a couple of days without you listing it at all.

It's good idea to submit in google. But richerbrat was right, don't worry too much. MSN and yahoo does so.

I used pingomatic and technorati on my blog. Pinging them is a good way to promote your blog. Wordpress already pinging pingomatic by default. If you're using wordpress, don't worry too much.

Yeah dont bother submitting your site to search engines. Just go get some good links from other bloggers and also use the ping method as mentioned above.

As soon as you have some links google and the other engines will find you with their search bots through the places you have links.

Try putting your url in your signature to start.

I think even for blogs you need to submit your site in search engine preferebly manually.

I see Google spidering my Wordpress blogs within a week by just pinging via the default Pingomatic when I post.

Adding the blog feeds to My Yahoo, My MSN, and a custom Google home page speeds up the process.

Submitting blogs to search engines is a waste of time, in my opinion.

I don't feel it is necessary to submit to SE. Like everyone else has said, the SE's will find you pretty easily. It still might be smart to submit your blog to blog directories

Crawler-based search engines automatically visit Web pages to compile their listings. This means that, unlike directories, you are likely to have several, if not many, pages listed with them. This also means that by taking care in how you build your pages, you might rank well in crawler-produced results.

It pays to submit it on submission sites. Whether search engine will find your or not, just think of it as bonus to getting your site's traffic.

You should submit to more high PR authority sites, not just to search engines. eventually, your site will be indexed by search engines.

There was a time when people count this effort.But I think there is no need to submit to search engines.Search engines bot will automatically found any newly published blog/site.You can faster this process having a proper n page optimization or some link building.
