Major Search Engine Registration Services FAQs
What search engines will my site be listed in?
AllTheWeb, AltaVista, AOL, Bing, Dogpile, ExactSeek, Excite, Google, Hotbot, Iwon, Lycos,
Mamma, Netscape, Open Directory (dmoz.com), Search.com, WebCrawler, Yahoo Directory
(non-commercial sites only), Yahoo Web Results, and more.
How long will it take before my site is listed in the search engines?
We will provide the manual organic submissions of your site within 5 days. We also add a link to your website on our Marketing Clients page which is crawled frequently by the major search engines. The search
engines may take 2-8 weeks before they check your website. Then it's up to them as to whether
your site is included and how your search engine listing ranks. If you want to be assured your
website will be displayed on the first couple of pages of results, see our search
engine optimization services.
Why donít you submit sites to hundreds of search engines?
A common myth on the Web is that submitting to hundreds of "engines" will gain you all
kinds of new traffic. The bulk of those submissions go to what are called FFA sites that are
not search engines at all. Instead, they are simply a list of links to the last fifty or so
URLs that were submitted to the service. Virtually nobody ever uses these sites, and the
primary purpose of these sites is to gather e-mail addresses so they can sell them to spammers.
The fact is more than 95% of searches are done on the top 5 search engines (Google, Yahoo,
Bing, AOL, Ask), and more than 99.5% of searches are done on the search engines and directories
we submit to with our web site search engine submission service.
