Search Engine Submission DOES Work!
Many think that search engine submission is a waste of time and money. The fact is that most people will use a search engine to find what they are looking for. If you are not in the search engines the chances are your competitors are cashing in on the business you could be getting.
Search Engine Submission is basically a pain in the rear end. I am sorry to be so blunt but really to get your business into the search engines it either costs you a fortune in time or money.
So is it really worth submitting your website to the search engines? Too right it is. I run a number of businesses and for the last 4 years I have been using search engine submission to increase my business turnover globally. This is how I know it works.
For the 1st few months I had my websites submitted to the search engines every single month religiously. I noted as the time progressed so did my Google ranking and my global sales. Then I decided to stop. This was a silly move because what happened was my competitors muscled in on my ranking and as my ranking declined so did my global sales.
Of course I began having my sites submitted to the search engines again. Gradually my businesses were climbing the rankings and I found my sites continuously in the top 3-4 pages of Google.
But this is not just about Google. To really reach the global markets you need to get your site into as many quality search engines as possible. There are thousands of search engines out there and I knew there was no way I could submit individually to each and every one of them. So I went hunting for a way to get my sites into all the big search engines and all the most popular search engines in one hit.
Wow! Once I started submitting my sites to over 1000 of the most popular search engines my business sales globally and domestically really soared.
Still sceptical? Yeah I don't blame you. Let me help a little. You can submit your site to the search engines once and once only – sure you will get into the search engines but you may be way down the line – anywhere for page 10 onwards. Statistics show that when people are searching on search engines they tend not to go any further than the third or fourth page of the search. If you are not there they will not find you – your competitor will get the sale.
Many of the search engine submission companies guarantee a placement on the search engines either in the top ten or within the first 3 pages. This is ok and they may ask the most horrendous fee possible do this but as soon as a competitor who has been on regular submissions submits you will lose your spot. This is money wasted.
The only way, and remember I have proven this to my financial detriment, you will maintain a high ranking in the search engines is to submit on a regular basis – a bare minimum of once a month.
So what about cost? Well you should not be paying huge sums for this service. I pay only $10 a month (Australian) for my service. You really shouldn't pay more than that. Your are not looking for bells and whistles just a company that will do the job, provide you with reporting after each submission and give great customer service either via email or via their website. I get all of this and more!
Whatever you do once you are submitting your site to the search engines monitor your statistics. These are a great gauge as to what is happening with your website hits. You will certainly know where your hits are coming from and that the submission to the search engines is the most lucrative and smart way to increase your business sales.
