Unfortunately, there are lots of folks offering "silver

website inclusion and ranking problems.
The only guy with
silver bullets is the Lone Ranger.
There are no magic

you get and stay on the right track. It takes a

but it's not magic. It may also prove to be lot of
Consider these facts:
In the USA (and most
of the rest of the world) there are only three
search engines that matter for delivering
significant traffic from organic search:
Google, Yahoo, and in far distant third place,
Live.com. Some folks might say Google, Google
and Google. Read the September 10, 2007
Nielsen ratings for search engines. AOL
and About make up the rest of the top five, but they
don't count for much traffic.
In December 2008, Google expanded
its usage share in the U.S. search-engine market to
a whopping 72.1 percent of all queries,
up from 65.9 percent in December 2007. The
other three main U.S. search engines all lost share.
Yahoo came in a very distant second with 17.8
percent, Microsoft Live was third with 5.6 percent,
Ask.com ranked fourth with 3.4 percent. These
four engines total 98.9 percent.
experience show that the very best way to get your
website found by search engines is to get one or
more links in from other websites that are already
in the index of Google, Yahoo, Live.com and other
search engines. I have seen brand new websites
make it into the Google index in less than a week by
linking in to the new web from my web site or other
websites. Don't know anyone with a website?
List your web site with one or more reputable
directories. Look at stpt.com, botw.org,
exactseek.com as examples. They are not free,
but you are getting value for your money.
You can register
your website for free with Google and Yahoo using
Google webmaster tools and Yahoo Site Explorer.

You can register for

many months most likely.

Once you are in the
search engine index of Google, Yahoo, Live.com or
any other search engine, submitting your website to
them again can be regarded as spamming and could
result in penalties. Submitting again, once
you are in the index, would be like you adding me to
your address book and then me calling you up once a
month and telling you my phone number again.
How dumb is that?
More Ideas to
Supercharge Getting In the Google Index
There are some things you can do so that
Google indexes your web site or new web page within days
Tip 1: Get a link from an existing site
Links are very important for high
rankings on Google. The more (quality) links you have,
the higher Google will rank your pages.
An easy way to get a link to your
website is to join a forum that is related to your
website. Participate in the discussions and sign your
posts with your name and a link to your website.
Make sure that you do not spam the
forums. Only participate in an online discussion if you
really have something to say about the topic. If you
post in a well known forum then Google will quickly pick
up the link to your site.
Tip 2: Create an external blog
Google likes blogs and many blogs are
indexed very quickly. Use Google's Blogger.com service
to create a blog that is related to your website subject
You can set up the blog as a page in
your website, or you can set it up externally at Blogger.
Either way, Google indexes Blogger blogs frequently.
They own Blogger. I have put links to brand new
pages in my website in my blog and several have made it
into the index with rankings in less than 48 hours.
Write a few posts and add a link to your
website in your blog posts. Google will quickly index
your Blogger blog and find the link to your site.
Tip 3: Get as many links as you can
The more other websites link to your
website, the sooner Google will find your site. Look at
software as useful tools to get as many links as
Note that quality is more important than
quantity. And, also note that contrived purchasing
of links from link farms, etc. will get you in Google
Read Google's webmaster guidelines regarding linking
along with a lot of other good information about web
site dos and don'ts from Google's perspective.
Why am I telling you
Getting started with a new website is
tough enough as it is without unscrupulous folks taking
advantage of your lack of knowledge and experience.
The idea of submitting your website was a good idea 6-7
years ago, but not any more.
One of my favorite sayings is "Stupid is
forever - ignorance can be fixed."
