    Hi.

    In light of the changes with no one time paid inclusion anymore..

    When you have completeed a site, and are ready to submit to engines and directories

    where do you begin?

    who do you submit to personally?
    (can you provide urls please)

    what directories do you go to?

    what places do you pay for inclusion in?

    this question is mainly for people who are creating many sites frequently...

    I am looking for someone who does this regulary and has almost a plan of action he or she goes into when they submit, also please provide these in light of the silly sitematch changes

    all your advise and help is appreciated

    thanks

    I never submit, I just make links to the new site from some of the old ones.

    Yeah get links in and let the SE's find it. It doesn't take long as it used to. Paid submissions are not a very good idea for an affiliate site these days. They'll find it anyways and if they're going to scuttle your site you may as well not let them do it at your expense.

    Good luck.

    Yeah, just get links from other sites that the spiders visit often.

    Yahoo has a URL submission site now but I still prefer letting the spiders find me.

    If you want to use it, the Yahoo site is accessed via http://submit.search.yahoo.com

    A link from a high PR site will get your site indexed in Google in less than 2 months, probably more like 1.

    A link from a lower PR site may take a bit longer, but 3 months on the outside is probably the latest it takes for Google to find a new site and index it these days.

    'Several months' used to be the norm, but my recent experience (with Google at least) has been 1 to 3 days for the spider, and 5 to 10 days for the index.

    Hardly anyone submits to search engines anymore. Except for newbies.

    There is an exception (maybe) to the idea of not submitting. That is if someone is brand new, with their first site. In that case you might want to submit to the SE's.

    Links in to your site are the best thing, so go out and find a way to get them.

    FYI I have gotten brand new sites with no links indexed by visiting my site with the Google toolbar and Alexa. I have heard this is not supposed to work but it has for me several times.

    I agree with everything said, and the toolbar trick does seem to work.

    I have not submitted my newest site. I put a link to it from my oldest and bestest site (PR 5) within 1 week Google had found my new site and indexed it. In fact, last evening google did a semi deep crawl on my new site and it now has a PR of 3!

    In conclusion, 1 link from a PR 5 should do the trick!

    Aside from PPC engines, we hired an SEO to take care of all of our search engine operations. I think it is imperative to have at least a 2-tier proggy that entices others to not only promote your destinations in your affiliate program but also the program itself. It has worked well for me in the past and proves to be a powerful sales tool currently.
