Search Engine Submissions

The Promise

Monitor screen showing spam in the mailbox

Search engine submission spam used to be very common.

At one time there was a whole mini-industry devoted to search engine submissions. Supported by relentless spam emails, it promised to submit your site to hundreds (in some cases thousands) of search engines.

They wanted you to think that that those submissions would get your site into the index of the search engines (true) and that would ensure customers could find you easily by searching for what you sell or what you do (false).

It didn’t help.

search-engine-logosFor one thing, only three search engines really matter these days: Google, Yahoo & Bing account for more than 97% of all searches in America. For another thing, search engines constantly seek new websites by following links from other web sites. As long as another website links to you, you’ll be found, so no submission is necessary. And if no other websites link to you, submitting won’t help you because you’ll never show up prominently without inbound links. That’s why one of the first things we do for a new client is to link to them from our website.

For better search engine rankings, submitting just isn’t enough

Getting into the indexes at Google & Yahoo (Bing and Yahoo share the same index) is an essential step, but it’s entirely insufficient. The search engines will spider your site after finding another site linking to it. And If your on-page content is done properly, they’ll know what your pages are about and what kinds of searches you are relevant for. But if no other sites think highly enough of you to link to you, you may not get indexed at all. If you have only one or two inbound links you may get indexed but be relegated to ranking many pages deep in the search results.

We no longer routinely submit our clients’ websites to search engines: it’s a waste of time. Instead we work on all the other important ranking factorsincluding link buildingso search engines can see that you have a good reputation with other website owners.

    Chris, T
    Rank Magic has really helped with my website exposure in search engines. Bill takes the time to explain things that I may not understand and gives me suggestions on how to make my website better and more customer friendly. I have seen an increase in traffic over the past few years which is a great feeling.

    Bill- Had a client call yesterday who was frustrated with another agent in the area; seemed inattentive and wasn't willing to help. She located three other agents within 20 miles. Interestingly, I was the furthest away, however, I had the best reviews online, so she chose to contact our agency and do business with us! Am so grateful for your constant reminders about getting great reviews and high rankings. It works!!!
