One of the biggest and longest-running SEO scams out there is the paid search engine submission scam, where unscrupulous companies try to trick you into believing that you need to submit your website`s URL to the search engines in order to get indexed. You`ve seen the ads:
Submit Your Website to Thousands of Search Engines Only $29.95!
Nothing could be further from the truth.
First of all, there aren`t thousands of search engines out there. There are really only five top tier search engines worth submitting to that will actually send you any traffic. And you don`t need to pay anyone to submit your site to them because those search engines will eventually find your site on their own.
However, if you want to submit your site`s URL to those search engines, you can do it yourself. The five search engines are:
3. MSN Live
4. AOL (Powered by Google)
5. Ask (Powered by Teoma)
By the way, your website will get indexed a lot quicker, if you get inbound links from sites that are already indexed by the search engines.
