It is very common to find ads of companies that, after a payment, register your website in dozens of search engines, many of them unknown for everybody. If nobody know them, who will look for our page there?
According to a study, Google is the absolute number one, with 85% of the searches carried out worldwide. Yahoo and Bing are second and third respectively. The Chinese search engines Baidu and Ask are barely used, but there they are, with their small portion of Internet searches.
When it comes to positioning our website, we must pay close attention to how Google indexes it.
But, nevertheless, we must not forget about the rest. To start working on the positioning of our website, it is convenient to suggest our url to the most popular search engines. Perhaps, for various reasons, the robots have already indexed it, but it is not enough, although no search engine guarantees its optimal positioning simply because of this.
Here you have the links to suggest urls of the different search engines.
- Suggest site to Google
- Suggest site to Yahoo.
- Suggest site to Bing.
- Suggest site to Baidu.
- Include url in Ask.com. For this site it is necessary that the web has a sitemap.xml. If you have it, you simply have to send it through the ping-URL: http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http%3A//www.the URL of your sitemap here.xml.
Introduce it using the indicated link plus the domain and /sitemap.xml.
It is also convenient to include the site in directories, but this we will see in future posts.
