Why Search Engine Submission Sites is not necessary?
This is a big question when it comes to Search Engine Submission. Most of us get confused about whether to submit your site to various search engines or not. What else we can do to index your website quickly. You must look at this post which states
But the question is it worth to devote your time to submit your website to different free search engine submission sites
The answer is a big NO!
I was shocked to know about the fact and so you may be that Search Engines do not generally require dedicated search engine submission to index your newly uploaded website or webpage or blog post.
Why Search Engine(Google or other) Submission is not important?
The days are gone when you submit your site link separately into different search engines. Now you need not to do this kind of stuff. Though this practice is not harmful but you can sustain without this.
Now search engines indexes new links from the already indexed pages. They used to index new pages by following or crawling the links from other pages. These links on other pages are known as inbound links.
Let me explains to you how search engine gets to know about the new pages:
Suppose you have a blog and you are updating it regularly but sometimes you may have noticed that your web page is not indexed even after a week of posting it. This is because Google does not know that you have added a new page.
To make search engines notice your web page, you must place the link of your newly build blog post on the posts that are already indexed. This will make your newly build web page easily indexed in search engine. Inbound links or interlinking plays a very important role in the indexing your website. It is one of the biggest SEO factor as well.
Interlinking to the top pages of your website make your new web pages easily appears in search engine. If this thing is happening then your web page is going to rank fast in Search Engine Result Pages or SERPs .
One of the other reason why search engine submission to various search engine submission sites is not necessary is that almost all the search engines consider the links shared in various social media platforms like Linkedin, Twitter, Stumble upon, Google Plus and Facebook.
So whenever you post a new blog post or create a new web page you must share your web page or blog post to different social media channels to get an immediate effect in indexing the links.
You can also submit the links into various social bookmarking sites and high pr image sharing sites to get easy attention of search engines.
I hope it is now clear to you why it is not much worthy to submit sites into free search engine submission sites. Still, there is no restriction in search engine submission. You can do if you have sufficient time. Enjoy!
