Search Engine Submission Sites

Search Engine Submission Sites & Links

Most of these places have free web site submission, but some require that you register before you can complete the submission. Personally I create a dummy email address that all my junk mail can be sent to and use that as the registration address.

By submitting your site to lots of search engines you will get a greater chance of exposure and traffic to your site. The main engines are a "must" but to get your rankings higher it takes quite a few other varied aspects to be implemented.

1. Yahoo! Search

PPP Love

One of the new fads out there on the blogosphere is the system of "pay per post" or PPP. It is also referred to as viral marketing because of the way it spreads out marketing messages throught blogs worldwide. Generally posts are focused by topic and end up on relevant blogs, making them a valuable "plug" that people read about from trusted sources, like me!

Some marketers find these posts to be a alternative method of marketing but it really is the fact of real people telling their stories and sharing marketing messages versus some blind robot who just searches for you by keyword. If you blog try Pay Per Post for yourself! Javascripts

There are some newer, free JScripts that can use to do some pretty spectacular effects for sites. has some great image viewing scripts, Lightbox JS & Lightbox JS v2.0, that have the look of flash, but are solely javascript. Scriptaculous also has some great effects to use for adding some slick effects to your sites.

Content is King... With Attention

Content is King... With Attention

I recently read an article all about page optimization and what some of the important factors are in developing a search friendly web site. They described all the pieces from the domain name to the coding elements like meta tags, keywords, the description, alt tags, good linking structure, but touted that "Content is King."

Now, I am not disagreeing with that statement. Content is certainly the largest block of the building. But what I felt was missing from their article was the fact that content should not be implemented then forgotten. If you have a great website, but it stays the same for months or even years it grows stagnant and will start to die over time.

Think for a second about How well would the site perform if they left news up on their homepage for a year? Now that is a very dramatic example, but the principle is the same even if it is on a much smaller level. Am I saying that everyone has to update their content every day to stay on top? No!

What I am saying is keep updated information on your site. Do you have events, sales, specials, holiday giveaways, or anything that you can add, especially to a homepage, that will show search engines your web site is a living document? How about new products, or asking a question to get feedback from site visitors, anything to show that you are vested in keeping your web site active and informative.

You have to take into consideration your market, your competition, and your own web site focus. Are other sites adding or changing content every 3 days? If they are most likely they are going to beat out any site that has had no changes in a long period of time. Do you run an informative site or e-commerce? Then fresh content, on a regular - frequent - basis is your lifeblood.

One good way to keep fresh content is by starting a personal or corporate blog and making a post or two a week. I tend to post a lot and I have search engines picking up my site every couple hours. Link those post titles to your homepage with some server-side code and see a huge jump in those bot visits!

There is so much you can do, and most of it can be something quick and simple. One or two hours a month even can show that you care about your web site. Write some content, share your news, sell a new product. Trust me, by giving a little, you will be gaining a lot.

Australia Proposed Copyright Rules » Ironvine Search Marketing

Australia Proposed Copyright Rules » Ironvine Search Marketing

Australia's new proposed copyright laws seem like a very stupid idea and really hamper freedom of speech and freedom of information. I'm standing with Google on this point. However, I do also think that an opt-in method could also work. It would just be a huge strategic nightmare with updating servers on the search engine side and granting access. If you don't want your stuff indexed use robots.txt. Come on people if you're not able to add that you have no business having a web page or content online.
