Search engines can take up to six months to list your website, however it varies greatly. Some will list your web site in as little as two or three days, others will take several months, and some may choose not to list your web site at all. Unfortunately, we cannot control this. Some search engines favor recent submissions. Therefore, it is important to use our automatic resubmission feature. Why do you feature unlimited re-submissions?
First, we believe you should be able to re-submit your site every time you make relevant changes to it. Second, many search engines favor recent submissions. Third, many search engines drop you from their listings without notifying you. One reason for being dropped is that periodically, search engines will re-spider your site. If your site is unavailable, they drop you. Every site becomes unavailable occasionally and this causes problems with staying listed. Most of the time, however, you get dropped for no easily determined reason. So, regular re-submissions are necessary. How Does the Sign-Up Process Work? You will be asked to fill out a form that collects the necessary information for submittal. You will then have access to all of the site analysis tools. Use them to optimize your site and correct any search engine related issues. When you are ready, you can select an option to begin the submittal process. Your site will be submitted and an e-mail will be sent to you with a link to your customized web page that contains your submission results. Your site will be re-submitted any time you want, with a customized report being generated each time.
