Benefits of submitting URL

There are several advantages to submitting your website to a search engine, and some of these include: - Search engines often send out what are called ‘spiders’ to search the web for new websites. If your website is new, it may not appear on search engines, so by submitting your website to a directory, you are helping the ‘spiders’ to find an index to your website. Therefore, it will appear in web listings. - By submitting your website, you will see an improvement in Search Engine rankings. When the spiders crawl the web, they will look for specific keywords. Ensure that your website contains plenty of appropriate keywords - site maps are one way in which the spiders can find an index to the key words.
