SEO: Url Submission to Search Engine

Submission of URLs to search engine is the first step to getting your site online and to get better rankings in Google. What is an URL? URL is an abbreviation for Uniform Resource Locator. It is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Wed. An example of an URL is www.yoursitename.com. Eventually the search engine will find your site but this will help expedite the process.

It may take several days, weeks, and/or months for the search engines to index your page or pages. Results may also vary. And factors such as other web sites pointing to your site can affect also this time.

Submitting manually your website is highly recommended. The search engines give no guarantee of ranking your page because you have manually submitted it. It is a tool that is used to let search engines know that they have the information to share. Manually submitting your site is what Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
