you've got a website... what do you do? Tips on promoting your site. .
Your Site Promoting your site is as important as getting a site to start with.
What good is having a site if no one can find it? There are many misconceptions
when it comes to search engines, directories and web crawlers. The first thing
to remember is web traffic does not come automatically to your site once it is
up and running. The search tools must crawl your site in order to list it in their
indexes. Each search engine or directory had its own criteria for listing a website
and also its own time period that this takes. Some can do it as fast as a week
while others may take several months. They not only vary from search engine to
search engine but also from day to day. There is no guarantee that they will list
it at all but generally they do as the larger their index is, the more people
will use their engines.
attempt to help them along by submitting your website to the top search engines
and directories using special software. This gives them the information on your
site without having to come look for it. Once it is submitted, there is still
a period when each one has to visit the site to rate its content and know where
to index it.
you can do is also important. Yes, there are things you can do to help spread
the word! Be sure to put your web address (www.yourname.com) on all of your advertising.
If you have business cards and don't want to reorder yet, print the domain on
small address labels and affix them to the back. Print the website address on
invoices. Add your web address in the signature of all outgoing emails you send.
Put your address in all directories that you may come across on the Internet that
have to do with your business. Also, tell everyone you know. Word of mouth is
still a great way to become known.
