Getting Noticed by Search Engines
We all, meaning us webmasters want to have the best and top-rated website. But how do we get there? We start linking and submitting. If you are like me though, you don't want to pay someone to do this. So, you so it yourself. This article shows a few tips and tricks on how to do that, mostly on how to get indexed by search engines.
The best way to get indexed is probably not through the fast submission services. For me the best results have been achieved by going directly to the "add URL" site. This may be more tedious but it works. Go to sites such as http://google.com/addurl/ and Google will crawl your site.
Also, trying to get one-way links will help. If you have no links to your site, chances are your site could be skipped or not seen. Many and I mean a ton of sites will offer to exchange link with you (you display their link and they diplay yours.) These links don't hold much weight with search engines.
You see, the crawler can detect reciprocal links and they dont't mean as much as one-way links. Sadly, it is very hard to get the prized one-way links. The best way is to have good content and diplay a "link to me" button. If a person likes your site they might just link to you.
Besides that try submitting to Dmoz.org and the Yahoo! Directory. Google says your site will be hard to miss if it is in these two directories. I hope these tips and helpful hints really are helpful.

Do Search Engines Scare You?
What do the words "Search Engine" make you think of? I get immediate mind-pictures which vary but all have similar themes. Sometimes I see one of those tiny submarines which are used to explore the deepest parts of the ocean bed. I have this picture in my mind of the tiny submarine underwater in complete darkness apart from the beam of its searchlight which is probing the gloom. Other times I see a horse-drawn carriage driving through dense fog with only its weak lamp relieving the darkness. This scene is from a movie where the police are racing through London in search of Jack The Ripper. The final picture is of a line of policemen in old-fashioned uniforms advancing across a moor in darkness through rising mist with only their flashlight-beams to light their way.
