How, When and Where
Search Engine Marketing Tips
Now, before I let you in on a few secrets regarding search
engine submissions, I must (once again) remind you that there is
a lot more "how to's" when it comes to the art of search engine
ranking and promotions. So, just because you're now more
knowledgeable about this topic, doesn't make you a "guru" (from
Before submitting your web pages, there are a few
precautionary steps you must take. First, make sure your pages
look perfect... all the links and graphics are in place.
Check you META description and keyword tags... your title tags,
etc. Once you submit, that's it (for now anyway). Of course you
can resubmit your pages (which is actually recommended if timed
properly), but a little time must first pass by and I'd hate for
you to waste all your hard efforts and time on a "bad"
Here's a huge fallacy and misconception on the Web
(it's actually a downright lie!)... the idea that you need to
submit your site to "over 400+ search engines and directories".
This is complete bullsh*t!
Listen, over 90% of your traffic will come from the
top 20 search engines and directories and most of that traffic
will be from the top 6-8! Now, there are a lot of these software
programs or submission services that will cost you hundreds of
dollars to promote your site (between $150 to $500) to these
lame and useless search engines.
Don't buy into it! At the end of this page I'll show you how
to do it for free! (Also, most search engines, and
especially directories - like Yahoo!, LookSmart, etc. - will
NOT accept "automated software program" submissions. So, you
might as well save yourself the money and do it manually!)
But, if you ever do decide to buy a submission software
program (if used properly, they can save you time which is very
important in the long run), use
WebPosition Gold. It's a nice program because it's
got lots of cool features.
|It'll create HTML "doorway"
pages based on keywords and details you enter about your
business (not as accurate as if you had done it
yourself, but it's a start).
|It can create, custom-tailored
advice on how to optimize each of your new or
existing Web pages (the advice is a bit too general).
|It can submit
your pages to the top 10 search engines.
|It will analyze your traffic and
track your visitors and where they came from
automatically, without the need to download server log
files or buy extra software. (This is a very important
feature... but again, I can show you how to get a MUCH
better site analyzer for FREE!)
|It also comes with a
"free report" that further explains, in detail,
how the search engines work, including the specifics of
the top 10.
