This article makes part of a series of 20 articles. The subject of this series is the creation and promotion of awebsite as a cost-effective method to establish a profitable home based businesson the Internet.

In this article I will help you how to choose theright web hosting company.
In my previous article, “Achieving financialfreedom with Network Marketing on The Internet – Part 10 – Choose awebhosting company”, I have indicated to you important issues to take inconsideration when choosing a company to host your webpages.
In this article I will show you what to do and whatto avoid while submitting your website to Search Engines and Directories.Interesting articles on this issue can be found in my website. See in the menuunder the section Articles for home-based businesses the option SearchEngines Ranking
Submit your website to Search Engines andDirectories
Generally, the major Search Engines send theirspiders once a month to crawl the web and gather the URLs and the content of asmuch web pages as they can. Then they process the importance and the relevanceof each web page and build their databases. From these databases come thelistings of the web pages, when someone makes a search.
Even though every Search Engine provides a way to submit your web pages (onlythe home page or a few more) for inclusion in their databases, it is better thatyour web pages are found from the links in other websites. This way, theyexamine your website, or send their spider to “fetch” your pages. If theselinks come from important websites of great relevance with the theme of your webpages, then they do include your website in their databases. But this takestime, usually 8 weeks, since Search Engines (the stuff behind them) do have alot of new web pages requests for indexing to elaborate daily.
So, I suggest that you wait, regarding the majorSearch Engines (Google, MSN, AOL, Alltheweb, Altavista, Inktomi – Inktomi isnot a Search Engine by itself. It is a database of webpages that gives itsresults to other search engines and directories, like Hotbot).
On the contrary I suggest that you search and findsmaller Search Engines or local Search Engines and Directories, where you haveto submit your web pages, since they crawl the Internet rarely. This way youwill get better and quicker results. Do not pay to be included in the Directoryof Yahoo (it costs $300 yearly). There are programs that can accelerate thisprocedure of submitting to smaller Search Engines and directories. They arefree, shareware or cost not much money. Use them. They include lists of smallerSearch Engines and directories you will need much-much time to find about.
I include two of them, Addace and SimpleSubmit, in my website atwww.netincome.gr/download.htm. The versions included are not the current ones, but they are the free ones. Thecompany that created Addace (http://www.addace.com) has released a newer version, which costs less than $50. It also offers a freetrial offer of this newer version for 30 days. I suggest you do not downloadthis trial version. Use the current one. It includes many search engines, major,minor and regional ones. Some of them are obsolete now, but most of them arefunctioning and you can submit your website to them, as I did. ADCSoft, thecompany that has released “Simple Submit”, does not support it any more (http://www.adcsoft.com/simplesubmit.html).But, this program will give you the URL’s of the 30 major search engines, sothat you can submit your website to them easily in one day. Once you arefamiliar of their use, you can search for similar programs or services on theInternet, freeware or shareware.
Download them and see what they have to offer and how they function.
