View Full Version : Website on search engine?

12-31-2002, 04:01 PM
I have a new website, been up about 8 days and I have submitted it to every search engine I can think of. I have set up a lot of keywords, description, and all the meta tag info, I believe correctly. But I still can't pull up my site through any search engine. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Or does it just take over a week for it to post on the search engine?

It takes from a few days to a few (even many) months for your site to be added to search engines, depending on the search engine - some will never add you even if you submitted your site.

More information about search engine submission and tools to automate that process can be found at www.selfpromotion.com.

Google is the main search engine for yahoo, aol, and alot of others!

Submit it here!

Correction: Google is not the result provider for Yahoo anymore - it has been replaced by Inktomi: http://www.inktomi.com/company/news/press/2002/yahoo.html

Adding your site to Google sure is a must, but you should not forget smaller search engines as it may be easier for you to get high positions there.

I stand corrected. When did this happen, Pierre? I assume recently!

That was announced on December 23, so it effectively is quite recent.
