Timing of Submission

Hi all

I'm totally new to all this website submission game. Can anyone please advise me.......

What is the sequence of events following submission to a major search engine (eg Google)

Presumably the submitted URL (the homepage?) gets recorded as due for spidering in the future, then as the time of the month for spidering comes around, the spider visits and assesses the rest of the site (all the links OFF the previously submitted homepage), then the whole is indexed. Is it that simple, or is there more to it than that? Does it speed things up to submit more than just the homepage at the outset?

Also, is there a particular time of the month for Google specifically, when it spiders (presumably, just before this time, is the optimum time to submit, so the delay is minimal between submission and listing.

Sorry this is a bit of a long-winded message, and so many questions at once.

Thanks for any help :)

Google does allow you to submit your URL, I am not really sure how useful that is. The main way in which it finds sites is when it follows links to them from sites already in its database. So making sure that you get links from sites it knows is the most important step to getting listed.

Furthermore, the PR you asked about is based entirely on the number and quality of links to your site. So if you have few links pointing to you, even if Google indexes you, your site will appear far down in the lising of results.

Links are emphatically not everything with Google, but they are of great importance.
