View Full Version : Submit your URL to Search Engine
01-14-2000, 12:31 AM
If you have a lawn care web site and would like to have it listed and indexed at go.com (infoseek), I have just joined them as a guide. That is, I am someone who reviews web sites to be used in their search engine. Currently, go.com is the #4 most used search engine on the internet. <p>I don't do this for money. I don't make a dime off this. <p>If you'd like me to review your company web site and submit it directly to go.com, you need to email me at email@example.com with the following;<p>1) URL (e.g. http://www.yourname.com/)<br>2) Brief description (e.g. We provide lawn care and landscaping to the greater Boston area)<br>3) Your name and email. <p>I will be happy to give anyone from this forum a good and honest review. <p>You should know too that I am not the only reviewer. After I submit it, it is then reviewed by two other guied before it is posted. <p>So why submit it with a guide instead of doing it yourself? Well, two reasons. 1) Go.com doesn't take direct url submissions as far as I can tell and 2) having reviewed by a live person, and furthermore, someone in your industry, is much better than letting a robot or computer tech rate your site. <p>----------<br>Jim Lewis - Lewis Landscape Services<br>http://www.lewislandscape.com<p>

Hello:<br> www.goto.com is one of the top rated search engines, but did you know I get more hits off this forum & the directory listing in this forum than www.goto.com. I think thats because of all the traffic that this great forum gets that Chuck has provided us for free.<p>I'm going to start bragging now, I'm listed #3 on www.goto.com & I've been bouncing from #1 to #3 for about a year there, but I get more than 80% of my hits from AOLnetfind, there I'm listed #1 & have been for way over a year.<p>AOL just like Goto use guides like Jim Lewis & others to review sites. A lot of sites base your your ranking on keyword & Description meta tags, keywords used in your page names also in the first 250 words of the text on your page also & keywords in the image alt tags which I need to do again on my home page & in the description meta tags. <p>I'm listed very high on your top 10 plus search engines, it takes a lot of hard work to do this. I have other large sites wanting to know how I accomplish this & I will tell them to do as I have. I read everything I can find on search engine placement & it has payed off.<p>I just broke 6000 hits (in the past 30 days)a month not page views or impressions which is confusing. These hits I'm getting are unique visits which is what counts. Using the keyword phrase "lawn service" & you tell me how many people get in front of a puter & put in this kind of phrase in search engines, not many!<p>I've only done this on my home page because thats what I want. Some of the search engines will list the page links to your other pages off the page you submit. There is also robot meta tags & revisit meta tags but this is too much at one time to understand, at least it was for me. <p>I've been working hard on this page:<br>http://www.lawnservicing.com/valuable_Internet_resources.htm<br>it will be the next one I place in the various search engine directories. The page name says it all & here is a quote from: http://www.turfquip.com/ dated 1/12/00 <br>"By the way, I have to say that your V.I.R. page is among the best I've seen!<p>Besides the big commercial sites & this great forum I'm giving all of them a run for their money. Yes I'm tooting my horn loud & hard. It's took a lot of hard work to put this page together & I will continue too as long as I'm able to.<p>This page has still got a long way to go but I enjoy helping others & I enjoy the benifits that come with it!<p>Well I've tooted my horn for so long my battery is starting to go dead. One last thing before I go, I wish when I was in the business I had access to all the valuable information that can be found on this forum & the internet. Just because I'm not in the business any more doesn't mean that I don't stay on top of things more than most Lawn Service owners do!<p><p>----------<br>GrassMaster - Have a nice day!!!!!<br>http://www.lawnservicing.com

I have to agree with you Grass Master. I put up my first website a month and 3 days ago and my invisble counter turned over 3,000 hits today. The counter on my site wasn't working for a couple days, so I need to adjust that one. The invisable is also a counter that only counts the visit, not pages. I'm not even listed on search engines yet, because it takes around a month to get listed. This means that most of my visits had to be from this forum. I didn't expect that many hits in a years time when I put the site together and all it is, is a few lawn photos, a couple of articles, and chat rooms. I have gotten a few hits from Dixie Chopper too, but almost all of them came from this forum. As long as Grass Master got to brag, I have to Toot my horn at least one note. The guy in charge of Dixie Choppers advertising asked my permission to use my lawn photos on their new website they are designing and also a dealer has asked too. For some stupid reason, I'm excited about this. Also Sears took their equipment photos on one of our lawns for 3 years straight. I'm done blowing my horn. Some times you just have to do it. Don't want my battery to get as low as Grass Masters. LOL :) <p>----------<br><a href="http://pages.prodigy.net/eric.erickson/index.html">Eric@ELM</a><br>
