Search engine submission is the process of making a request to a search engine that a website be included in its index
Goole and Bing offer free, one-step submission forms;
Search engine submission is one method of getting a new website indexed, but generally isn't necessary, as Google, Yahoo, and Bing are continuously crawling the Web in search of new pages to index.
Alternatives to direct search engine submission:
Google and other search engines find and index new web pages by crawling the Web and following links; but more importantly,, every incoming link signals to seach engines that a "vote" has been cast for that web page, in turn improving its link popularity and rankings.
Avoid using any service that claims to submit to hundreds or thousands of search engines; the result is often a large quantity of email spam, low quality backlinks, and other types of activity best avoided, especially when launching a new website.Back to Springboard SEO's glossary
