Search Engine Submissions Made Easy! Part 1By: Robin Nobles
One area of search engine marketing that has changed dramatically over the years is submissions. Submitting to the search engines used to be so complicated, with having to choose between manual versus software submissions; only being able to submit so many pages a day; having to be careful about oversubmitting; and the list goes on.
Submissions used to be the worst part of the search engine optimization process, at least for me.
Now, I can literally write this whole article in two words:
Yep, there you have it. If you want to take the headache out of submissions and if you want to make things much easier for you, use pay inclusion!
It’s hard for someone like me to admit how powerful pay inclusion programs are, because I’ve been in this “game” long enough to remember when everything was free. So, moving into the pay realm has been a difficult thing to do.
However, the benefits of pay inclusion far outweigh the cost.
Benefits of Pay Inclusion
Pay Inclusion Programs
Inktomi (Provides secondary search results to engines such as MSN and HotBot) www.positiontech.com/directSubmit.htm
Fast (Provides search results to AlltheWeb, Lycos, and HotBot) www.positiontech.com/directSubmit.htm
You can use Position Tech to submit your Fast pages too, so be sure to enroll in both pay inclusion programs at the same time.
Teoma and Ask Jeeves (Provides results to Teoma, Ask Jeeves, and HotBot) ask.ineedhits.com/
The only way to get in the Teoma index is through pay inclusion. This is one engine that doesn’t have a free add URL page.
After writing this article, I found that Lycos is offering a discount on both Fast and Inktomi pay inclusion programs for a limited time. If you submit to both engines, you can receive a 20% discount! I don’t know how long this will last, but here’s the URL: insite.lycos.com/searchservices/select/select_overview.asp?co=undefined
