Submitting to the big ones
There are currently hundreds of search engines out there, most of them are not much more than an advanced FFA page. You can surely not submit your site to each of these.The best strategy to follow is to use automated submittal software as discussed earlier for the Search Engines that are less popular, while hand submitting to the top 10 Search Engines.
Beware of the ads such as ’submit to the top 500 search engines for only $99′, because generally only the top 10 will drive traffic to your site. It doesn’t take much time to manually submit to these top engines and your $99 could better be spent on overture.com or buying ads in ezines or whatever.
At the moment the top ten search sites – meaning both directories and search engines account for just over 93% of all search engine traffic. The other 6.something% is made up of hundreds of sites claiming to be search engines. Even at that the 11th – 15th biggest search engines make up most of that figure. So what are the search sites you need to concentrate on? Some of the top search engines are discussed above. There are a few
others which are also quite popular. The following is a suggested list of search engines and directories.
