|Getting your website listed in the search engines is
relatively easy if you submit it, but even if you donít 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websites to index, old ones that are no longer valid, and the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.
