What Are The Questions?
Usually They Want...
- Your Name: Good luck with this. Please use your real name. It feels silly returning an e-mail to someone named "Death-Tongue."
- Your E-mail Address: Give it to them straight.
- Keywords: Much, much more can be found on these, in and arround the Net. But just quickly! These are words some (stress "some") search engines use to locate your page. Choose broad topic words. Also use the roots of words. Use "dog" instead of "doggie." The reason is if you use "dog," "doggie" will be found. Its a root. Using "doggie" eliminates "dog" since "dog" is smaller than "doggie."
That may have been the dumbest example on this site ;o)
- Description: Tell us all about your site... in 15 words or less.
- Want to Pay? Some search engines offer higher level
searches, or certain placement, or more input text if you pay a bit. That's up to you.
- Passwords: Some ask you for passwords so that you can go back in and edit your entry later. I always put in "password" as my password. Strange that no one else thinks to do that.
Please keep in mind that each
search engine is different. Some will ask for information, some won't. Some will allow you to re-submit or edit, some won't. Some ask you to put a link to their search engine in return, some don't. (I could do this for days.)
Registering Many Pages At Once
I go to a site named Submit-It! Yes, there are other sites that will do this, but this is the only one I've ever used. If you know of another, feel free to let me know. I'll put a link to it. Freedom of choice--that's what I always say.
The site Submit-It has two levels: a free and a pay level. The free level is pretty good. You'll get 10 or so search engines for that. How long it will be free I don't know, so I'd hop to it. When you get to Submit-It you will be asked the same type of questions above and then go to another page with a whole lot of buttons. Each button sends your information to a different search engine. There you'll probably answer a few more questions. The whole process to register one page takes about 20 minutes.
That's about it. Go and register a page just for the heck of it. Let one of the engines walk you through the process. You'll find that the number of visitors to your site goes up a bit, if not a lot. Mine did.
