Search Engine Submissions?

by admin on June 20, 2005

Whenever I get spam from companies claiming to boost your web traffic, they almost always talk about Search Engine Submissions. “We’ll submit your site to all the major search engines”. I even see Many SEO firms list search engine submissions as one of their key services.

All of which makes absolutely no sense, since anyone who actually understands Search Engines knows that “submitting” is a waste of time. The only thing a site needs to get indexed is a link from a site that already is indexed. Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask, and many other niche search engines all have crawlers that will eventually find your site from other links.

Search Engine Submissions must just be a popular myth that resonates with people, so it lives on.
