Search engine submissions Which search engines are of most use for targeting UK users paulclarke
Please can you tell me which search engines/directories are worth submitting to, and how often I should re-submitt the pages (to meta tag seach engines).
I have already done the following.
Google AV UK Lycos Dmoz
With lycos do you need to submit every page like AV or will it crawl. If it will crawl will it get to 2nd and third level pages??
Thanks in advance
Try AV, alltheweb, and hotbot. I usually submit the index page and 4 other sub pages. Give it 2-3 months before looking for results (depending on when the S.E spiders) then track your site's ranking on that engine. paulclarke
Do you think UKplus is worth the £49 to get indexed ??
>Do you think UKplus is worth the £49 to get indexed
Nope, the results used to be shown on Freeserve this looks like it's been dropped now so I wouldn't pay.
If you looking at sending any money pay for some inktomi pages this will get you into all the UK SE's that display Ink, try having a look at the Ink forum for more information.
One tip if you are going to pay for any pages don't pay for the index.
The search engines you have submitted IMHO are about the main ones, I wouldn't bother submitting to Hotbot, if you want to get into Ink for free try Goo, but it's a very long shot
Was this the service you were thinking of ??
it's one of them but I've never used them
Thanks Paul. I was not aware of trellian - going to give it a shot.
