How do I submit my site to search engines like Google and Bing?
When your web site has been brought online, you may want to attract more visitors to your site. The first step to do this, is to make various search engines aware that your web site exists.
Search engines, like Bing, Google, and Yahoo, crawl the internet for new content to add to their databases. If there are other sites linking to your web site, then your site will appear in search results when the various search engines find the links to your site. If you do not have anyone linking to your web site, however, the search engines will not have any idea that your web site exists, and your site will not appear in any search results.
In order to speed things up, and make sure that your site will be indexed, you can submit your site to the major search engines and make them aware that your site exists.
Please keep in mind that search engines are operated by third parties, and that Surftown cannot guarantee that your web site will appear in a specific search engine's results. Additionally, the site will not appear immediately, but rather once the search engines' crawlers have visited your web site. When you submit an URL it is placed in a queue, and it can take over a week before the crawler reaches your spot in the queue.
