Hi,

I have my site listed in the major US search engines (google,lycos,alta-vista,Yahoo etc etc)

I was wondering what Euro search engines i should be adding my url too, to reach the majority of the European market, that i would be missing by just listing with the major US engines?

I realize that some U.S. engines that i'm listed in have partners and agreements with engines in Europe but what engines of importance could i be missing and require direct submission?

Thanks for your assistance.

I am going to launch a site which will be of a global nature,which I hope will be enjoyed by every one. I need to market this site to European country specially UK and Spain. I am totally new to this part of the world.

Is their any special engines and places where I can get listed, inspite of being a non European site.

Any idea about the top European search engine or any place where I can find the index.

Thanks for your inputs.

Jitesh, Buckley: Europe is mostly in the hands of the major international search engines. Those have either local sites or provide results to local portals.

The filtering between local and worldwide results is an option given to the users. They can choose between results in their language, from their country, or worldwide.

Thetre are virtually no local engines of any major importance left in western Europe at this point. (Very very few exceptions)

So the answer to your question is - get listed in Google, Fast, Ink, AV and you have covered it 98%.

A list of the european search landscape is here:

Jitesh, forgot to mention for the UK you should really visit our dedicated UK forum [webmasterworld.com] - it's a whole different game over there.
