(Page 1 of 4 )
So, youíve just created a new Web site, purchased a new domain or moved your existing pages to a new server. After a few days, you might notice something very alarming: youíre not appearing in search engine results when you type in your main keywords and phrases. Do you know how to fix the problem? Do you know how to submit your URLs to search enginesÖand actually make them pay attention to it?
Search engines are made for one purpose: to crawl the Web. Itís their job to scan Web pages for the keywords you enter, offering up the most relevant results in a ranked order so youíre sure to find just what you want. So why the heck should you have to submit something to get them to recognize your pages, if their whole job is finding your pages online? Isnít that why you spend time on search engine optimization, worry about your content and pay careful attention to keyword count? Whatís all this URL submission business about?
When creating pages for the Web, itís always important to consider important factors like keyword density. You want your pages to have a pleasing design, navigational links and other goodies to attract users and keep them happy. So why do you have to submit your URLs if your pages are already highly optimized and carefully designed for the World Wide Web?
Well, thereís the rub. No matter how much you optimize, you might still have to first alert the search engines that your site even exists. This means youíve got to submit your URL, and tell the search engine to index and recognize your site. Do you know how?
