Hi everyone,

In your experience/opinion,do SEs find a new submitted web site even if not linked to any other indexed site?

Any reply will be appreciated

Sincerely

I suppose if you submit it directly to a search engine, but that wouldn't really be being "found".

But I think the general consenus is that without at least a few inbound links a site is likely to rank well.

In all honesty, it wouldn't rank, so I wouldn't care if it was indexed without links or not. ;-)

Well, I'm sure my very first site 12 yrs ago or whatever was found in this way. Would it be recommended? No.

Why the heck wouldn't you want links?

It couldn't possibly rank for anything, but I set up hosting for a new domain that had been parked for a month or so and uploaded one page. Within a couple of hours after uploading that page on hosting and making the nameserver change at the registrar, along came Googlebot and the page was in the index by the next day, full title and description. Not a single, solitary link to that page from anyplace at all, and it wasn't submitted.

I have one website that was picked up and indexed by the SEs shortly after the domain was registered. It hasn't been spidered since, but it is indexed. Not sure if that is what you were asking?

I think that when a domain is registered, SE's can find it. Maybe they scan whois records? But if it's just a random page thrown in a site with no links to it, I don't think it will be found without something linking to it.

Curious question though. If you email the link to someone using Gmail, will Google find it when it scans the email?
