Search Engine Submissions, Are You On the List

Search Engine Submission

 

With all the acclamation of SEO and the power of search engine optimization, the first step is proper search engine submission (SES).

While many only see this service as a one time only service to begin their marketing platform, it is a vital key that is often overlooked by amateur search engine marketing professionals.

Search Engines Indexes millions of webpages a day. With this huge task put before them, they are always pruning or removing older listing. There are several reasons why search engines may remove your website links from the search engine results pages and not all of them are necessarily punishment for wrong doing. However, first we will look at some reason search engine may never index your pages.

Top 3 Reasons why Your Website is never Indexed

  1. Search Engines Spiders index websites starting with the home page. If a page is not easily found from the home page, it may be completely overlooked by search engines and never indexed.
  2. Improper Meta Keywords and/or meta descriptions can cause your website not to be indexed by search engine spiders.
  3. Lack of relevancy based on keyword density can be a preventative measure to your website being indexed. Search Engine Spiders do not read Flash files including many Slideshow features, videos, pictures without alt tags, and some full page graphical elements. Having a website built with poor web design software, software without only graphical appeal and no concern for SEO, or just a poor website designer can eliminate any chances you may have to be indexed by search engines.

Top 3 Reasons for Removal of your Website Links

  1. Natural pruning. Search engines automatically drop old listing from the search results pages periodically. This process can occasionally happen monthly with some search engines. This is a method they use to keep results fresh and timely.
  2. Black-hat SEO tactics that goes against standard SEO guidelines can have your website rank significantly dropped, your website ranking reduce, or even banned from search engines.
  3. Spam content, massive negative reviews, or negative reports by other users. In all cases, the website owner is not actually the guilty party. Persons can report your listing and have it removed while an investigation is ongoing. This is a blackhat competitive SEO tactic used my many shameless Search Engine Optimizers.

Why Search Engine Submission is Critical

There is no guarantee that each page of your website will be indexed by any search engine. In fact it is closer to a guarantee that this will never happen. However, professional indexes of particular webpages that are targeted towards critical SEO markets can be manually submitted to search engines to have then indexed. Furthermore, as a website meta keywords and meta descriptions are optimized for the search engines, submission is required once again to make sure the SERPs show accurate descriptions and are showing for proper keywords.

In simple terms, search engine submission should be done at least monthly and more frequently when optimizing website content or adding new pages. PKP Marketing Consulting personally submits our website every 1-3 days depending on the updates to make sure our listing stays indexed because we realized the value of the traffic we receive from the search engines.

If you are having trouble being found in the search engines it may be search engine optimization and it may be a search engine submission issues.
