    The first thing you (and everyone else who reads this) need to do is to reply to them and ask what exactly is involved with each package work wise.  This will tell you (and us) not only if they`re charging too much or too little but it will also tell you their levels of experience.  I`m extremely curious what is involved with the basic and advance search engine submission packages.sddreamweavers6/16/2008 11:09 PM

    First of all,
    YOUR BASIC SEARCH ENGINE SUBMISSION PRICE IS WAY TO HIGH!
    Why would you want to charge a customer $60.00 dollars when they can do it themselves?
    There are various sites and software that you can use "FOR FREE" to submit your web site.
    Following down the Line... Advanced submissions and all you have to offer is submission to DMOZ and MSN? What a rip OFF... Again customers have to do their homework and know that there`s free software to do this.
    I think almost every package that this company has to offer is FAKE... They want to charge you for Google Analytics? Google Analytics is free... and it doesn`t take a genious to learn how to read the statistics... Isn`t that why Google has a Video Tutorial?

    It`s a rip off.  Plain and simple.  Pass on them.  They don`t know what they are doing.  If they or any other SEO/marketing company don`t want to get to know you and your business first and foremost and don`t want to know what it will take to make your business succeed, always pass on them and companies like them.sddreamweavers6/17/2008 7:16 AM

    Search engine submission - is really not needed. The way to get indexed by search engines is quality in bound links from other indexed web sites.
     
    I can`t say it is a rip-off, that really can not determine without knowing if the company gets desired results for their clients. Plus - trying to price and package (market) such services to be reasonably priced and presented in a way to communicate the services offered may be a little misleading... not in a bad (deliberate) way, but a brief explanation may not fully explain the service(s).
     
    For example - when I do SEO services the serves are tailored to each client, because what needs to be done and the approach varies depending upon the client`s targeted keywords, competition, and web site. So, trying to have a generic "buy now" price and description would be hard to produce unless there was a note about possible exceptions.

    Thank you very much... Lets say you did want to submit your web site to the search engines... Which I do advise to do when you`re a new web site is USE WEB CEO.. which will allow you to do just that, and not pay the $60.00.

    This is exactly the reason why that particular service is a rip-off.  You can`t apply a cookie cutter approach to all SEO jobs, which this particular service is doing.

    Or you can save your money on silly SEO software and pick and choose from the handful of good directories that you can submit to AND that are considered `good` by Google/Yahoo/MSN etc:http://www.avivadirectory.com/strongest-directories/
    Now this method gets the best results if your site is Brand spanking new.  Keep in mind that all of the directories listed might not apply to your business.  If you`re limited in funds pay the money to get listed at Yahoo and business.com.  Leverage business.com only you are a B2B type of business.sddreamweavers6/17/2008 5:03 PM

    Hi Roland,
    Could you explain "The way to get indexed by search engines is quality in bound links from other indexed web sites"  ?
    How do I establish such links? Do other sites need to be in same business/area? Do I need to pay for that?
    Thanks,

    There are a number of ways to get links to your site... that will get your site indexed.
    Links from other sites (related is better), links from search engine friendly directories, and forums (links in your signature or posts). The link to your site can not be "no follow".
     
    Of course each of those sites needs to be indexed themselves and be visited regularly by search engine bots. Usually, if a site , directory or forum has been around for a while they are regularly visited by bots.

    Site submission is simply submitting your site to the search engine - usually with an on line form provided by the search engine. You complete a from that tells the search engine your site`s URL, title and description.
     
    SEO (search engine optimization) - in general, is the process of using your targeted key words/phrases in your web site (across your site`s web pages) and "preparing" your site so that it can be indexed properly. The goal of SEO is to help your site be found when people perform a search using your targeted keywords... with the idea of having your site appear on the first page of search results.

Is it a simple form that can be filled individually?
    At what point of time do you fill this form? Before launching the site or at the time of launch? Is there any approval period etc after which the site can be searched online?
  • vwebworldvwebworld Posts: 40subscriber
    You can submit to search engines yourself by going to each search engine and completing their form... one per search engine. Their are services that will submit this for you too.
     
    Again, submitting to search engines is not necessary - while you can submit to search engines and it doesn`t hurt to do so, the best and fastest way to get your web site indexed by search engine is to have a link from another site that gets indexed regularly.
     
    When you submit to search engines most say it will take from a few days to a few weeks for your site to get spidered/indexed.
     
    When to do this? Some suggest as soon as you have a URL/domain name, but to really be a benefit it is important to have a site with content.
