What is Search Engine & Directory Submission?
As explained in our PageRank and Link Building product, search engine rankings are driven largely by the quality and quantity of inbound links that a site – and its pages – receive. Directory submission is one such way that such links are built. Search Engine Submission, conversely, is all about ensuring the pages on your site have been crawled and indexed by as many search engines as possible.
Why do you undertake Search Engine Submission & Directory Submission?
You have to be in it to win it, as they say! A page will only appear at the top of results if it is first included in the search index itself (i.e. search engine submission & SiteMap optimisation). Once there, page rankings can be substantially improved through quality links from trusted directories.
How do you approach Search Engine & Directory Submission?
We have a vast database of free, paid, reciprocal directory sites and search engines at SEO Expert Services. Through experience, we have built up a good understanding of which sites carry the greatest TrustRank. Working within your promotion budget, we use a variety of submission methods:
Review of Site for Indexing Inhibitors
- all sorts of factors can inhibit search engines from wholly indexing your website. Examples include certain types of dynamic URLs or poorly formed (or overly bloated) HTML code. Sometimes, pages or sites have been banned from search engines for triggering (often inadvertently) spam filters. We can help with fixes & re-submissions.
- XML Sitemap & Crawl Rate Optimisation – all major search engines have now adopted the XML SiteMap 0.9 standard. We help you to build and submit such a sitemap to the search engines to ensure that all your pages are indexed over time. We also format the sitemap to optimise the frequency and depth with which search engines will crawl and index pages.
- Search Engine Submissions – we submit to the top five search engines (and others they supply with results, like Bing and Google), who account for over 90% of all internet search traffic. We also submit your site to 20-30 smaller search engines like yep, not least because large engines index their pages. It’s all part of the service at SEO Expert Services!
- Directory Submission Service – many directories feature in the most trusted sites on the web. Quality links from these sites are an essential part of your off-page optimisation campaign. We arrange for your site to be listed on paid, reciprocal and free directories in categories relevant to your business. Where possible, these are so-called “deep links” directories to pages deep within your site (rather than links to your homepage).
Where do you use the Search Engine & Directory Submission Product?
The Search Engine Submission & Directory Submission product is a core component of all our Organic SEO services. The only variable is the number of submissions we will make for you; in the SEO Organic Gold service, for example, we will typically make more than four times as many as we do in the SEO Organic Bronze service.
It works only if the directories are niche and have the authority over there domain.
