When you want to make it so that your website is seen as much as possible, there are few things you will want to look into. The first is to consider signing up with online companies who do nothing but help your website gain visibility in a matter of days and keep it that way. There are many companies like this all over the Internet, but you will likely want to check out a few before you go with one.

In addition, you might want to use several different search engines to look for these companies. If you start to see one name a few times, you'll know that they probably have their methods down pretty well. Most of these sites will offer services like paid inclusions, search engine submissions and sponsored listings. This is usually for a flat monthly fee between $30 and $70.

Whether or not you choose to sign up with a company is up to you. However, if you avoid this option, know that you should come up with some sort of marketing plan. If you don't, the likelihood that people outside of your immediate community will ever see your site is quite small. You'll want to learn about paid listings, crawlers and directories. These are all different aspects of search engines.

Listing Your Site

Directories, such as Yahoo and the Open Directory, are handled by people as opposed to the Internet. Humans edit and compile listings for directories when you sign up with them. If you are listed with a directory, there is a very good chance that you will become listed with a crawler. Crawlers, such as Google, Ask Jeeves and MSN, will follow links to sites and compile listings that way. In order to achieve a high ranking, your site will need to be optimized right down to the Meta tag.
