Adding your website

To have your website appear in search engine results you need to submit your domain name, usually via a form, directly to the search engines.

Once submitted, the search engines will send out what is known as a 'spider' or 'bot' which analyses your website content, such as your page text, title and description meta-tag, and then reports back to the search engine so that it can decide where you should be placed in its search results.

Our basic submission package includes submission to five major search engines; Google, Yahoo, Bing, ASK and DMOZ.

Search Engine Optimisation

Search engine local listings

Most of the major search engines are now offering a more localised means of searching the web.

This usually ties in with their increasing use of mapping technology and GPS, which is becoming increasingly popular particularly on mobile devices such as smart phones.

Google Places, Yahoo Local and Bing for Business are the local business directory arms of the 3 major search engines.

As well as submission of your domain name, they will also request business contact details, a description of what you do and even photographs to create a dedicated page in their local business directory, and on their maps, specifically for your business.

Our standard submission package includes basic submission to Google, Yahoo, Bing, ASK and DMOZ and submission to Google Local, Yahoo Local and Bing for Business.

Other directories

As well as the major search engines, you should also submit your website to as many local directories, and directories in your business field, as possible in order to increase your exposure and, subsequently, improve your link popularity.

We can carry this out for you as part of a reciprocal linking strategy for your website.

XML sitemap feeds

As well as submitting your domain name/s, the major search engines now also accept submission of a separate file (XML), sometimes called a 'feed', which provides details to the search engine about the pages, within your website, that you'd like to make available for search.

You can specify which pages the search engine should include, the importance of those pages within your website, the date those pages were last modified and how often the pages are modified.

We create, and submit, an XML sitemap feed file to Google, Yahoo and Bing as part of our advanced submission package.

Robots.txt

A robots.txt file is a simply plain text file, created in Notepad, which is placed on your web server and contains information about your website that instructs search engine spiders not to index certain sections or pages of your website.

You can use it to prevent indexing totally, prevent certain areas of your site from being indexed or to issue individual indexing instructions to specific search engines.

We create a robots.txt file for your website as part of our advanced submission package.
