I have heard much talk on people needing hits needing ranking ect... for there websites... so I went and did alittle reasearch for yall :-)
Here are some options for submiting your website to search engines and how they may or may not work for you.
1. Using a free submission service.
Basicly this is by far the worst way to go...free submission sites sound like a good deal but their actualy not... sites use algorithems to configure ranking... free submission services submit the same information to every site which actualy lowers your chances of being found.
2.Using a low-cost automated submission service
In the long run its not much better then the free submission service... it gets your name out to probably 900 sites but again its the same information that isn't specific to the particular search engines requirements. Some even say that they resubmit from time to time but you could end up loosing your spot as well as perhaps getting band for spamming. BE CRITICAL.
3.Manually Submitting Your Web Site Information To Each Individual Search Engine
This is one of the best free ways to do it. By tailoring what is added to the submission you are insuring that every site is getting just what it needs to be success full in the ranking scheme of things. However. This does have its down sides it can be very time consuming and labor intensive and also has no pros involved to make sure your keeping up to date.
4. Use A Professional Search Engine Consultant
This option is by far the most effective. By using professionals you are guaranteed to have everything submited tried and tested with little effort on your part. On the down side this service doesn't come cheep. Prices ranging from 600-1000 dollars in order to have it done properly with the feed back you diserve/require.
Again be sure to be CRITICAL check their references and listen for word of mouth.. not everything is full proof or honestly what it seems.
5. Using submission software.
This isn't something that comes highly recommended. Versions come and go as well as the technology and information needed to have this operate successfully. Their is no promise that this method is either successful or even worth while.
Something that I have Stressed through this post is being Critical... if something sounds to good to be true it probably is. The main bit of advice that has been passed around is choose the proper keywords they will make all the difference.
I hope this helps
