Registering your site with Search Engines

You have to tell the search engines that your site exists.   A good place to start is by checking your sites status with Google and the other search engines.

  1. Do a site search e.g. www.web-ethical.co.uk and see if your site is still in the index.
  2. Check your search status on Google by using their site status service https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/sitestatus
  3. Check that your site ranks for its domain name by searching for its domain only e.g. site:web-ethical.co.uk
  4. See how your site is indexed by Google e.g. info:http://www.web-ethical.co.uk
  5. Find out what other sites link to your site e.g link:web-ethical.co.uk

If you haven’t told the Search Engine then this is how you tell them:

Google: http://www.google.com/addurl
Yahoo http://uk.docs.yahoo.com/ukie/express/splash.html
Bing http://www.bing.com/docs/submit.aspx?FORM=WSUT
