Search Engine Submission Checklist
The Evolution of Search Engine and Directory Submissions
Search engine submission is the most practical part of SEO following Website Audit, SEO analysis and SEO advice implementation. This is why SEO has long been associated primarily with the search engine submission services offered by SEO companies. Submission had been considered a must do, but it was a time-consuming and boring task until search engine submission software was invented.
However, very soon SEOs started abusing it. The reputation of all search engine submission software was seriously compromised. These days, SEO companies that offer automated submissions as their primary service are completely behind the times.
However, submission of information about your website and your business is still necessary in many instances, so it should remain an integral part of your SEO strategy.
The main reason behind website submission to search engines and directories is links rather than traffic generating. The major search engines have a chance to pick up your site if they find links to it on other sites or if you have submitted a Sitemap. But directories, unlike Google, won't include your site unless you submit information. The same applies to most local search projects that will discover your site only if you submit its pages to those search engines.
In the social media era, modern submission software will not only submit sites to directories and local search engines, but submit Sitemaps, blogs, news, articles, and press releases on social media sites and specialized (blogs, social media, shopping) search engines.
