Should I Submit My Website to Search Engines?

April 2004
By Alice Seba

When we are speaking of true search engines that crawl the web...the simple answer is:

No, you need not submit your website to search engines.

If you are talking about a human-edited directory like the Open Directory Project...then yes, you will need to submit there. But for a search engine...nope, you don't have to submit.

It seems like a difficult concept to accept because all the major search engines have a submission page. Why? I guess because people expect it. The general webmaster-going public might go crazy if there was no form to submit our websites. I'm not really sure.

But the fact of the matter is, when we are speaking of a pure search discussed in our What is a Search Engine article. Search engines use technology that crawls or spiders from website to website on the Internet. How do search engines find websites? It's incredibly simple:


If you have other websites linking to you (sites that are listed on the major search engines), then search engines will find you.

If other websites don't link to you, search engines will never find you...and it really doesn't matter if you submit your site to them over and over again.

Arelis Review

If you don't believe me, listen to:

Google Webmaster Guidelines:

"We add thousands of new sites to our index each time we crawl the Web, but if you like, you may submit your URL as well. Submission is not necessary and does not guarantee inclusion in our index. Given the large number of sites submitting URLs, it's likely your pages will be found in an automatic crawl before they make it into our index through the URL submission form...

...The best way to ensure Google finds your site is for your page to be linked from lots of pages on other sites. Google's robots jump from page to page on the Web via hyperlinks, so the more sites that link to you, the more likely it is that we'll find you quickly."


Yahoo Help:

"Yahoo! Search crawls the web every 2-4 weeks and automatically finds new content for indexing. If pages already in the Yahoo! Search index link to your site, it will be considered for inclusion in the next update of the index."

When building a new website, I absolutely don't waste my time submitting to search engines. I just build quality incoming links to my website. It's as simple as that.

Which brings us to the next question (which I'm sure you'll know the answer to)...> Should you pay a search engine submission company? ---> cont.
