In very simple words, search engine submission is that process that a site owner adopts to get their site listed with a search engine. Some people know search engine submission as a search engine registration. These terms can be used interchangeably.
Something that all site owners looking to get listed with a search engine should keep in mind is that getting listed is not synonymous with a good ranking. Getting listed simply means that the search engine is aware of the existence of your site and can recognize it in its vast pool of websites.
Contrary to popular belief, it is still possible to make search engine submissions for free. However, there is no denying the paid search engine optimization is definitely on the rise and is a most popular option. Paying for your search engine submission means that the whole process would unfold at a much faster pace. Your submission charge can at a minimum be about $300 a year or more.
Most search engines have links which will lead you to the submission form. Depending on if you choose a free submission or a paid one, you will have to fill out the appropriate form. Make sure that the form is filled out correctly and completely.
Before submission, you should ensure that you have all your information in place. Have a short paragraph summarizing your website where you should be sure to include keywords. Make sure that the paragraph that you are writing about is not based on what you do, but what you are. In other words, don’t just submit a marketing or advertising tag line. The description of your website should actually summarize what kind of content makes up your website. Once you have submitted your form you will have to wait till the form is analyzed and you are added on to the search engine’s list of websites.
