A Site (Website) has to be publicised by various means, publicizing ensures that there are visitors to your site. No matter what your intention is (to earn money or a simple time pass) with your blog or website you need people to visit it. By the way what do you think is the use of your website when there are no takers. If you are planning to earn money blogging, then publicizing the blog is the best bet to ensure constant flow of traffic. As mentioned traffic equals money, so more the traffic better the money.
There are many means by which you can publicise your blog and one of the means is to submit your website to places which in turn publicizes your website. As mentioned in the post about search enignes there are two types of search engines Crawler based search engines and Human powered directories.
The other type of search engines are directory based or Human Powered, where there are representatives of the website or the directory to check your blog for links or content and index it in the directory. One example of such a directory is Open Directory
Irrespective of what type of a search engine it is, there is a trigger required for the search engine or the directory representative to go through your blog for it to get indexed. That trigger is your submission which lets them know that there is a website of yours which needs to get indexed and based on that the protocol of either the crawlers or the representative’s visit gets initiated.
So, submitting URL or simply put site submission is very essential for people on the net to know about your website and visit it. We will see how we can submit URLs to the search enignes in the posts to come. Make sure you Subscribe to Unoblogger by Email to ensure not missing out on future posts.
