Submission to Search Engines & Directories
|Posted: Fri, 2007-11-30 08:06|
Once a site is live, Website design services begins the process of submission to the search engines. SEO experts recommend manual submission to the major engines (Google, MSN, and Yahoo) to prevent possible SPAM aversion techniques employed by the engines.
For specialized sites dealing in various businesses, travel, and the medical industry among others, they may exist topic-specific portals and engines geared to showcasing such sites. As part of our SEO packages, they will research the Internet for possible avenues of promotion, indicate and suggest free and paid advertising as needed.
Directory listings are an important factor in the optimization of websites. As the Open Directory (DMOZ) powers the directory search of thousands of minor engines, a listing in DMOZ can improve a site's link popularity (i.e. number of non-reciprocal inbound links to a site). As Yahoo is the most respected and visited directory on the Internet, it is important to be listed there as well. Submissions are made immediately to these sites, where applicable, and to other minor directories of importance and/or relevance.
Website design services will look for topical directories that correspond to a site's content and, in the case of paid directories, make recommends for applying for listings. Website design services will not subject your site to "free for all" sites or useless link exchanges that may damage the relevance of your site in the eyes of engines.
