Search engine submission,
why should I bother?
Do I really need to bother with submitting my site to search engines?
If your web site has not been indexed by search engines, then 'yes, you do need to bother!' If search engines don't know about your web site's existence, then you need to let them know. How else are they going to index your site and list it in their rankings?
To help you with the submission process, you can use the free tool below - it will let major search engines know about the existence of your web site.
Secret: here is a secret tip ... before submitting your web site to search engines, make sure that you have added proper robots.txt and sitemap.xml files to your site. This will help search engines properly index your whole web site.
If your web site is indexed by search engines but does not rank well , then re-submitting your site will achieve nothing. What you need to do is first look atÂ whether your web site is properly optimized (on-page optimization) which includes having selected the right keywords to target with your web pages. If all is good at that level, then you need to work on your off-page optimization ie. backlinks.
If you are not sure about the on-page optimization condition of your site, feel free to use our free on-page optimization tool.

If you get a page that displays a boxÂ at the very top of the pageÂ similar to the one below, then Google knowsÂ about your web site and re-submitting your web site will not help its rankings. See 'Warning' above!
You will notice that the box above includes information as to when Google last indexed your site.
