Getting your website indexed by search engines is something you should do in order to make general public know that it does exists. Search engine is the chief ingredient in generating traffic. Of course, you can use paid advertising for this purpose, but it is going to cost you. But before your website appears on search result you have to make sure that search engine spiders can find it. This article contains several ways on how to do it.
Many SEOs recommend to build back links from another site that is already indexed rather than submitting your website directly. Sometimes your site can be spidered and indexed very quickly just by submitting it to news releases.
Submitting articles to article directories also works. A few months ago I tried to only use this method. What I did was only by rewriting some Private Label articles and submitted them using iSnare article submission service. The result was it got indexed in some big search engines within days.
Posting to forum can also help. If you choose this route make sure that the forums are listed in search results because private forums are not always indexed. AssociatePrograms.com forum is the one that had helped my website found by search engine spiders.
Besides posting to forums, another old standard you can use is by submitting your website to general directories. A free program from linkdirectories.org can help you accomplish this task easily.
Next, consider to take advantages of some social bookmarking sites like blinklist as such sites get crawled by Google on a daily basis. In addition Socialize-it offers a free service that allows you to bookmark a page on multiple sites.
Does reciprocal links still work for having your site spidered and indexed? It may not have the same weight they once did but I have a site which only used this technique to get it listed with the search engines hence I know that trade links with other webmasters are still useful for this purpose. I used LinkMetro.com to find link partners. Another useful service you may consider to join is WebReUnited.com. I like this service because it only accepts webmasters who do not hide their link partners.
No matter which method you choose it is recommended to create a sitemap for Google. You can create it easily by going to www.xml-sitemaps.com. Enter in your web site address and this site will create an xml file for you. The next step you should do is to go to your Google account and add the sitemap.
Search engine visibility is very important since it leads to traffic. This is just a few of the methods and techniques that you could use. Having your website spidered quickly is one of the most important things you can do to achieve success as an internet marketer.
