• Your hosting company should offer a service where you can submit your site to all search engines for a particular fee. My hosting company will submit my site to all search engines for about $40. There are other services that you can find online that will do the same thing for either more or sometimes less money.
  • Paying money to have your site "submitted to search engines" is a complete waste. Any decent search engine has a page for adding your URL and there are only 2 or 3 search sites that most of the users on the net ever use with Google dominating the industry. For example, you can submit your site to google via: However, what you really should be asking is "How can I increase the ranking of my site such that searches show my site near the top of the list?". For that, you need to increase the number of people linking to your site. To do that, you need to publish a site that is useful, interesting and/or unique. Then, submit it to various news sites -- typically weblogs and the like (for tech:,, -- each industry has its own set) -- and hope they publish a story. You can also pay $$ to increase your page rank. These are rip offs and may actually reduce the credibility of your site as the shysters that typically run such organizations manage massive "link farms" that contain no useful content, but exist to try and fool search engines into increasing rank by publishing bogus pages full of links. The popular search engines (such as Google) are aware of these tactics and go to great lengths to detect such shenanigans and eliminate any potential benefit. Bottom line: Create a good product and/or create content that people find interesting. Scubabob: Incorrect on both counts. My weblog is frequently listed the top of various Google searches and I have never -- not once-- created a metatag or otherwise injected keywords. If your site is informative and thorough, it will receive links and, as a result, will be ranked highly in search engines. If you must resort to keywords in the metatags, it is time to rethink your site's content. It raises the obvious question of why your site content doesn't actually contain the words that you want the search engine to see (picture only sites excepted, of course)? Pay-for-placement or pay-for-click has absolutely nothing to do with source engine ranking. Any legitimate search engine will either mark pay-for-placement ads clearly or place them outside the regular search results (Google, for example). Paying money for words on the search engine will not boost your sites rankings.
