Now that you have your site up and running, it's time to start getting people to the site.   The first step is to register your site with popular search engines.  Once you have done this, the search engines will "crawl" your pages, looking at the content and adding it to their indexes.

You have several options:

  1. You can visit each of the major search engines (yahoo, google, msn, dmoz, dogpile, etc) yourself and submit your site.  This works well because it's free, but it can be time consuming, and you'll miss some of the smaller, more targeted search engines and international search engines
  2. It can take a while (up to several months) for your site to show up in the major search engines after you've submitted it.   If you can't wait, some services (for example yahoo and msn) will let you pay an extra fee for expedited listing.
  3. You can choose a service to register your site for you.  This automates much of the process, making it easier for you to get your site listed.  Some services will register with a few sites for free and with additional sites for additional charge - they may also include expedited listing with the service.
