You’ve Launched Your Site: How to Get it Listed

TrafficYou’ve gone ahead and launched a Web site. How do you get anyone to notice you online, with the millions of sites already there? You need to be ranked on various search engines so that visitors can find you. More visitors means the potential for attracting more customers, which is why you went online in the first place. It’s important to get your page ranked as highly as possible (preferably in the top 10); Web surfers are notorious for having a very short attention span and want to find what they need quickly and efficiently. They simply are not going to wade through 100’s of sites to find what they are looking for.

When choosing keywords, try to put yourself in the place of a Web surfer: How would they find your site? What words or phrases would they use to search for you? It’s a good idea to start with a general category first and then add words that are more specific. Be sure to include your company name, a description of your product or service, and your geographic location when choosing keywords. Don’t be afraid to include alternate ways to spell words, if appropriate; and don’t be concerned about using initial capital letters on proper names. You never know how a person is going to search the Internet to find information.

search engine spiders So how do you actually get listed? Well, you can sit back and let the search engine spiders find your site or you can submit your site to search engines and web directories on your own. Most people use a combination of the two methods. The search engine spiders will go out automatically and put your site into their list of sites by examining the keywords on your pages or in your site’s meta tags.

When you get to the point that you are ready to have your site listed on search engines you can submit your information to one or more individually or you have the option of having a submission service look after this for you. If you use a submission service, your Web pages may well end up in places you have never heard of, but don’t be discouraged by this fact: someone is making use of the lesser-known search engines, otherwise they wouldn’t exist. So SEs submissions is not a good idea, just getting links to your site will do it right.

To promote themselves online, webmasters also have the option of submitting to a directory that has people acting as editors to choose which Web pages should be listed and where. There are not many of these types of directories; it is simply more efficient to have a piece of software crawl through cyberspace to perform these tasks. If you choose to submit to a human-edited directory, it may be several weeks before your site is approved; it then takes a bit more time for it to actually appear in the listings.

How to raise you PR fast!!!

Every single affiliate marketer want to raise the PR (page rank) of their sites and this is not something “NEW”. Here are some opinions of how you can achieve that goal, they are all based on the experience that most of these marketers:

On Question Like: “what should i do to raise the PR and make more keywords top?”

1. You need a lot of websites linking to you basically…and the higher PR of the pages linking to you and the more relevant they are the better!

2. I would suggest you focus more on your rankings in SERP. Optimize onpage (titles, headers, meta, keywords, etc.) and the do offpage though quality link building (using your keywords as anchor texts). Some ways to build links:

Directory submissions
Forum sigs
Blogs commenting
Article marketing
Social bookmarking
Link baiting

If you really want to build PR, search for “dofollow” blogs and participate relevantly and always be on-topic. Also building links to higher PR sites similar to your niche would also help.

3. It isn’t about the PR. It is about how well you optimize it..

4. The only way you can raise your PR fast is to do a bunch of stuff before Google publishes new PR data. You’d have to do it close enough that it feels fast, but not too close Google doesn’t crawl your new links in time.

5. submit your site to list of directories.

6. Choose quality link partners, minimize reciprocal linking and prioritize One-way links and also Create new, unique & fresh content

7. You get better PR by having a good quality site. Content is the most imporant, next is back links.

8. Page rank has little impact on your actual rankings. It could be possible that there are some SEO errors which might be suppressing your SEO rankings.Make sure you do not have any duplicate content on your website, and add quality back links towards your website.

9. Seriously, I vote that the next person who says “get more backlinks” without explaining the types of backlinks worth getting should end up with their genitals stuck in their ears.


It’s really simple, as Paul pointed out. Good sites generate the kind of links (actual traffic generating links) that webmasters want. These aren’t the low-budget chumpstain throw-a-few-banner-ads-and-little-else sites or the copy-everyone-else’s-article-site article sites or any of the other low-grade get-rich-quick-if-rich-equals-about-47-cents-over-a-year sites out there. These are sites that are useful, and original, and actually have something to offer.

Like Paul’s site. Take a hard look at it. He has stuff on there that no one else has…why? Because he actually took the time to write it himself. The only tiein to backlinks is that he gets backlinks from real people (including myself) who recognize and appreciate the time and effort he has put into writing quality content that benefits the end user. Those links in turn send him traffic…as in actual users (you know, the same ones most SEOs end up forgetting about because they’re so obsessed with rankings). Those users turn around and tell their friends. And so on and so on.

That’s the answer. Build something that others feel is worth sharing with others.

10. How to get your pr higher is like playing English snooker…easy to start playing with…impossible to master. Also don’t forget that your site may have billions of backlinks, but if the majority of them have nofollow tag (you can be sure that will happen, specially backlinks from high pr sites) its really a hopeless quest. For me Pr is just an illusion to make google even more rich…

11. PR is not a solution for increasing your SERP.

12. normally I submit to the directories and comment some blog.

13. I personally think PR is totally about smoke and mirrors, think about it. Google is probably one of the most secretive orgs in the world when it comes to anything remotely SEO. So why then do they provide a nice tool in google toolbar to show their score of a website? I think its purely to take peoples eyes off google’s real algorithms. Google does a fine job of creating mass dilusions

One side comment, not truly on topic but worth mentioning, stay clear of buying links, google is getting hotter and hotter on it. And if you are selling marketing space, links, banner spots or similar, make **** sure you put NOFOLLOW attribute on the page or links themselves or google WILL penalise your page or site.

14. create a sitemap in webdirectory

15. I support statements about qulaity content – there are lots of examples were a low PR site outranks high pr site on some of the keyword based on its knowledge (size and quality of the content) on particular keyword.

At the same time I can give a few examples where the positions in Google are purely built on link and anchor text from inbound links.

Biggest dependency is the competition – the weaker the competing sites the easier it is to get to the top.

Straight to the topic – fastest way to drive pr is increase traffic to the site. The more traffic the higher the pr

16. My websites have over 300 pages of high quality video tutorials, the ranking were dropped from PR5 to PR4, PR3…… finally to PR0 about 6 months ago. When my websites have only about 30 pages, the ranking was PR5 about two years ago. The more contents I added, the lowest PR will result.

I think PR has no any relationship with content. Even websites with only a few pages with normal contents have PR3 or PR4. Why my websites with 300 pages with different contents will be penalized to PR0?

17. on page SEO and a couple of links does wonders for SERP ranking

18. Backlinks are the key. But also use anchor text in the backlinks.

For example…


The word ‘Google’ is the anchor text, substitute that for keywords that you think others might use to bring your site up in the results.

19. Okay since PR is really an issue for the OP, you could also try participating in dofollow forums, blogs, or submitting to directories, etc. Their value is very low but they sum up. Overtime those pages you participate in or submitted to might have higher PR in the future.

You can also look for expired domains with PR and buy it.

20. Hi
Now PR is a favorite topic of mine

The ways to get good PR are
Great unique, frequently updated content. This is really the way to go

Page popularity ie backlinks Must be domne with some care

I think the content of your page is of paramount importance. There are websites that are not affected by the Google updates and I think this is due to the great webpage content

With regards to building backlinks, sticking to things like article submission and commenting in related blogs [pay attention to the titles of the posts you are commenting on are good practice
