The simple answer is no – search engine submission isn’t necessary. Then the majority of search engines Including Google crawl and index pages by following links. So all you need is a single inbound link from any already-indexed webpage this will identify your page to the engine. So as a result of that, any links to other pages within your site, will also be indexed… and so on.

For this reason, inbound linking is very important. In fact, acquiring back-links is one of the most important steps of any SEO campaign. In theory though, a website owner shouldn’t have to ’scout’ or ‘hunt’ for links. If the presented content is of interest, useful, and/or important, then there is a natural tendency among web users to link to relevant information. This is the basis for the Google Page-Rank algorithm.

That said, submitting your site to the search engines is to be advised, as some links may not be found if not submitted directly so we always advise getting this done and remember you only need to submit your site once. It doesn’t help or get your site crawled any quicker or any more often unless the content has changed and is of current relevance.

It should be noted that submitting your site to Google, Yahoo, MSN, and many others doesn’t cost anything. Many SEO companies assert that you need to pay a fee to the Search Engines in order to get your site indexed. This isn’t the case and although nobody should be expected to work on your behalf for free, we would advise all web users to stay away from companies who are charging an indexing fee for indexing.

They pick a market first, and then they pick a product those people are searching for. In other words, instead of trying to find leads to sell their product to, they find targeted leads and then ask them what they are wanting to buy.

Don’t even consider starting a business until you know exactly where you are
