Search engine submission should be used cautiously, if at all. In fact, it may be advisable to simply use the method of being linked to by another web site that is listed..If your webpage is considered to be worthy of listing to someone using a specific form of words in their search, or keyword, then it will be listed; it will be listed even if you have not submitted it. A search engine is not a website directory, which requires a site to be submitted and approved before it can be listed.
There is another aspect of search engine submission that many people do not understand. How often have you seen adverts for “Search Engine Submission to 100+ Major Search Engines” or “Submission to 1000s of Search Engines”? These adverts are total nonsense. There are three major search engines, or perhaps four. Google, Yahoo and MSN are the major ones, and possibly Ask. All others get their information from these three.
There are a lot of website directories that can be used for a search, but they are not search engines. A true search engine can search throughout the internet for websites with domains that are registered with the DNS on the World Wide Web, and if the search engine algorithm believes that the web page contains sufficiently unique information relative to s specific keyword, it will be included in its index. It is that index which is searched in a search engine enquiry.
A web directory searches only those websites that are registered with that directory. Until recently, Yahoo was a web directory, but now it does have a true search engine. All the minor search engines get their results from Google, Yahoo or MNS.
So, is search engine submission worth it? Probably not, especially if you pay for it. A true search engine will find you organically and when it does you will be given more credit in your listing if you have not tried to force the issue by submitting it. You can help by providing Google and Yahoo Site Maps, but submissions are not necessary and there is no need to pay from them.
