Hi All,

Just joined and am new to websites. My question is -- how much time does it takes for a site to apprear in search engines and start getting the PR. Its been 1 month since I launched my site and I submit it on SEs regularly. I also have 10-12 links to other related sites from my home page.

Hi Flingmaster and welcome to WebmasterWorld!

Generally submitting for free in itself does not have much effect in most big engines these days.
Doesn't hurt though, provided you do it only once in a while.
The best way to get picked up by search engines would be to get a good link pointing to your site. Like from the dmoz.org.
About the time schedule: Provided you have one or more good links pointing to you it can be everything from a couple of weeks to some months. It's different between the big engines.
With a new site I have lately put up I was lucky to get into all major engines for free in 4-8 weeks, with Google being first, Fast second, Ink third and AV slowly following up.

Hello Flingmaster, welcome to WebmasterWorld.
>>I submit it on SEs regularly

Submit it once and forget about it.

>>I also have 10-12 links to other related sites from my home page.

How many sites are linking to YOU though. Google likes to see at least one quality inbound link before they list you in the index.

1 month isn't that much time. Especially if you didn't launch the site with inbound links pointing at it. Give the spiders time to crawl your site, and the sites that link to you. 30 days from launch to indexed can happen, but unless you plan for it to happen it usually doesn't.

Now at least I know where Flingmaster's post went. Can someone remove my reply in the 3000 Ads thread? :)

Hi and thank you both for your valued input.
I think digitalhost is right because I launched my site without any links it and did not start putting link untill earlier this week. Over the last few days I have noticed that hits are comming from most of the links that I have on my home page.

About DMOz, I submitted my site about 2 weeks back but still doesn't show on it, could it be because of the lack of links?

>dmoz
Was your site accepted? You need to go to the category and browse it. New listings won't show in the search facility at dmoz.

DMOZ takes time, as does almost everything related to webmastering. Or at least everything that is free.
