In case you don`t know, search engines are best traffic source on internet. Ranking high for a specific keyword will bring you tons of free, targetted traffic. But first you need to get into their indexes. In the next articles I will show you some tricks to be listed and ranked faster.
Getting Listed in Google, Yahoo and MSN
First and the easiest way to getting listed is to submit your site directly to search engines. This is the easy way, but that does not guarantee when and if your site will be included.
- Google – http://www.google.com/addurl/
- MSN – http://search.msn.co.in/docs/submit.aspx
- Yahoo – http://search.yahoo.com/info/submit.html
As far as i know this will get you listed directly in Google. But a listing in Yahoo Directory is expensive and getting into DMOZ is very hard.
Best option to get listed in Google (the super trick)
is by getting linked from a website that is already listed in google search engine. If a site is already listed, Google trusts this site. That means their spider will follow a link, because they want to include all good websites in their index. This is good news for you. But many webmasters fail in this step, because they dont know the rules of the game.
"It is not important to only get a link. It is essential to get a link from an established website with a high page rank."
The best way to get an extremely valuable inbound link (link that points to your website from another) is to write an article and post it on http://www.ezinearticles.com. Ezine Articles is a free articles database on all topics. When you submit your high-quality-super-interesting article you need to include link to your website in the author signature. This is super important. Why? Because Google crawls Ezine Articles several times per hour. Yes, you heard it right. Google constantly crawls Ezine Articles so thay can track all the new articles that get published. Another good news for you. Instead of waiting for weeks you can be sure google will know your site is alive in just a few hours. And what is even better – Articles submitted to EzineArticles.com get syndicated. That means even more inbound links for you! That is why I personally use this way when I launch new websites. And it is totally free!
These are threee ways to getting listed in Google, however that does not guarantee Google will include your site in their index. In order to get listed and ranked high you need to know how search engines think. Learn how to prepare your website for search engines.
