Twelve Steps to Higher Search Engine Placement - Check for errors...
(Page 6 of 6 )
11. Check for errors. Before you submit your page to the search engines, run the page through an html checker and a spelling checker. Search engines do check and take into consideration spelling and html errors, and will penalize a page that has too many of either.
My advice - take the time to do it right. If you get a poor ranking on a search engine it might be six weeks before the search engine comes back to re-rank you. Get it right before you submit to the search engines, and then keep it right so when the search engine returns, you will continue to get high rankings.
12. Manually submit the site. Don't be tempted to use an automatic site submission program. They don't work, and can get you penalized. Better to manually submit your site to the top search engines. Yahoo, Google, MSN.
My advice - Start with Google.com, then yahoo.com, and then MSN.com. Each has a place to register your site with their search engine.
This may seem a lot of work, but if you do it right and get high rankings, it will pay off.
