Basic Search Registration
When a new site is launched, it must be submitted to the search engines
(also called search engine registration) so that when people go searching
for a topic they are interested in, that site comes up in the search.
Without doing this, it takes MUCH more time for word about a new site
to spread, and it is up to the site owner to actively promote a new
site as much as possible. (Take a look at http://www.i-commercesolutions.com/tip_21_tips.htm
for ideas on how you can begin doing this NOW, while your registration
is in the works.)
Initial site registration is a painstaking and thoughtful process that
is really difficult to do unless you know what you are doing and where
to do it. It takes us 5-6 hours to prepare the information to use and
submit to 16 top engines. We will competitively key-word your site based
on researching your competitors and how they show up in the search engines.
Site titles and descriptions of varying lengths suitable to each engine
are prepared and submitted, along with lots of other information about
your site. Some of the major search engines (specifically Looksmart,
Snap-NBCi and Yahoo) have begun charging site owners to "index" their
site, at $99 and $199 each. We do not include these without the site
owner's direct agreement.
We have some pretty sophisticated software that we use to accomplish
this, and even given this - and our experience and knowing how and where
to do this - it's still a difficult chore. Our charge for this initial
service is $250, and you don't want to launch a site unless this part
of it is in place. It generally takes 2 weeks after registration for
a site to begin showing up in an engine, and some of them can take two
months, but you will definitely see results that you wouldn't if you
use one of those automated submit it to every search engine from...
well, you get the idea.
