How To Get Listed In Teoma?
Without going for paid inclusion, how to get listed in teoma?

 8:05 pm on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0)


I am new to the Search Engine World and so I need your help.
I have a website and i want my site to get listed in teoma?
But at present i am not in a position to spend any amount for inclusion of my website. Is there are any way (backdoor entry), i mean to say that, is there are any other search engine/engines where i can submit free and its results gets displayed in teoma....?

While going through the forum i came to know that if my site has some good incoming links then, it will help to get listed in teoma.

Ok that's fine.

But other than the incoming links, r there any other way to get listed?

Eagerly waiting for your help.

There is no back door. Get good incoming links and they will eventually pick you up for free.

How about clicking on

"Submit Your Site"

on the Teoma.com site?

The "Submit Your Site" link does not seem to lead to a free submission form mrose.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld MrRoy! I also don't know of other ways then getting incoming links to get listed for free.

Thanks Damian

So I have to link with some good relevant sites to get listed in Teoma. But
Will I have to check that the sites which I am linking to is listed in teoma or not? Or
Teoma will search it from the web?

Thanks once again

Er.. not sure what you mean exactly by linking with, but when people mention 'incoming links' they mean other web sites linking to your web site.

>Will I have to check that the sites which I am linking to is listed in teoma or not?
No. 'Outgoing links' , links that point from your web site to another site, do not have an influence on getting your web site indexed.

It will help for your web site to get indexed by Teoma if the sites that link to you are indexed by Teoma already.

Thanks Damian

Thanks for your help.

But i think i dint able to make u understand what i mean by linking with good relevant sites. If anybody gives me a link in his/her page which is already listed in teoma...in return they can ask for a reciprocal link. I meant this basically.

Hope I make u understand now.

Anyway thanks once again.

Understood :)
Reciprocal linking is not needed to get indexed.
It doesn't hurt either of course, and reciprocal linking may help you to get incoming links more easily if you can promise or show you return the favour.

Don't take reciprocal linking too far though, try to avoid each outgoing link being an reciprocal link. It's been abused by groups of people cooperating to artificially inflate their linkpopularity among each other, so most search engines watch this pattern.
Search for 'linkfarms' or 'reciprocal links' on this site to learn more about (excessive) reciprocal linking in general, you'll need incoming links not only to get indexed at Teoma and other search engins such as Google, but also to improve your ranks in those engines once you're indexed.

Search for your keywords in Teoma. Find sites with link pages, directories, etc. that relate to your content. Request links from them. That's the fastest way of getting into any search engine.

Paying for it can be faster.

But if your looking for it on the cheap, then with all other search engines, the basic's are required, the ODP is worth looking at, also for the terms that you are interested in the SERPs that come up, especially the expert links on the right, which teoma deems as authorities, are the 'must of potential incoming links to acquire' for freebee inclusion into the teoma crawl/update cycle.
