    Cool Website Submission
    Hello everyone. Maybe someone could clear something up for me. When submitting a website to the Search Engines, should the "Domain Name" be submitted, or Should the original "URL" be submitted? Does it matter? Even if the original URL is not hosted through the Domain company? Finally, can submitting the wrong one hurt SE rankings?
    Thanks

    Each search engine posts its own submission rules. Generally, you submit the home page URL only as in http://www.mydomain.com/

    Submit it and then sit back and wait. Repeated submission are viewed as spam. For the three big dogs, Google, MSN and Yahoo, submission of individual pages is worthless. Also, do not resubmit a site when you make changes to the site.

    For the most part, you do not need to do submissions to Google, MSN and Yahoo. They will find you site as soon as they find links to it from other sites. Work on building some inbound links as soon as you get the site up. Google will not index most sites until it sees a link from another site.

    Forum signatures do count as links, so this is a good place to start with link building.

    Standardize your URL in all links to your site, including you submissions. Although http://mydomain.com and http://www.mydomain.com can be used interchangeably with most site configurations, they are sometimes viewed as different URLs by search engines. Set you standard as one or the other and always stick to it.
    There's good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.

    You may also submit longer URLs (e.g. www.yourdomain.com/shop/jewelry/). Search engines do pick them up as long as they are properly optimized. I personally found out that as far as optimization Page Name is the part that search engines (especially Google.com) pay significant attention to...

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the quick replys. I see i have been submitting too much, about every 30 days, I was under the impression that if i updated i had to submitt often. Thanks again, this site is becoming an everyday thing for me and hope to learn more from people who have already been "here" and r willing to help others achieve thier goals.

    Do not submit your URL to search engines as tempting that may be. You will have greater value if the spiders pick up your url through another site. That is why link exchange is vital, and link exchange only with related sites.

    I just recently put up a domain about 2 months ago. I was soo tempted to submit but A 2 weeks after I registered the domain, the spiders start coming in because of my link exchange.

    Also cause of a bit of onsite SEO and OFFsite. Within 2 months I have made it to #3-5 for my main keyword.
