Search Engine Submission TipsHow do search engines work?
A search engine sends out a spider to "crawl" through every page on as many Websites that want to be searchable and reads them. A program, referred to as an idexer, reads these documents and creates a huge index or catalog. The program that receives a search request, compares it to the entries in the index and then returns the results. Each search engine uses a unique protocol to create its catalog such that, only meaningful results are returned for each query. It's important to understand how search engines work and what the spiders look for when scanning Webpages. Your understanding of how the various search engines work will help you optimize and market your Website effectively.

Below are some helpful links on search engines: what they are, what they do, hints on Website submission, information on spiders, and tips and tricks on site optimization and promotion. We recommend spending some time here if you are concerned with bringing in more traffic to your Website.
