AUTOMATED SUBMISSION SOFTWARE

AND « WE SUBMIT TO 1,000,000 SEARCH ENGINES

FOR $25″ COMPANIES!

Personally speaking, these are a bust and don’t work. Don’t waste you money.

There is a simple reason why these « automated » and paid options don’t work – Category Targeting.

Put very simply, Category Targeting is all about submitting your site to the right categories in the right search engines and directories.

For example, say you have a site on Corvettes. At one search engine, they may only have a category for Cars. However, at another one, there may be a sub-category from cars called Sports Cars. Only you would know to submit your site to the Sports Cars category — AUTOMATED software or someone else would simply bang it into cars and sports car enthusiasts would never see you link let alone click on it!

Another example would be the description you give your site in one place may be entirely different to the one you choose in another.

For example, on a Teen Centered link engine you may use words like  funky, neato, boss, ppl, cu, l8r, 4u, and so on to describe your site because it’s part of the language teens use. On an O-So-Serious search engine catering mostly for retired folk you would not dare use these words because no one would understand you! 🙂 AUTOMATED software simply cannot do this!

There is absolutely no benefit if your site is in 1,000,000 search engines but no one clicks anyway. It must say the right stuff and it must be in the right category. As the person who creates the site only you have the knowledge to do this right. Don’t waste your money on AUTOMATED software submission software. It doesn’t work.

THE LOOK AND FEEL OF YOUR SITE – AUTOMATED SUBMISSION SOFTWARE

Someone once said: « Don’t reinvent the wheel! »
This is just as true for websites. Unless you are sure you have a relatively sophisticated audience DON’T use different colors for links. DON’T put stuff on pages where people won’t find it.

A good rule of thumb: Go to the big Search engines – Google, MSN, Yahoo – and look at how they have laid out their pages. Look especially at the following:

The colors they use for text, hyperlinks etc.
The placement of the navigation links on their pages.
Bottom line – Everyone has been to Google or MSN or Bing. If your visitors are likely to be ‘Internet novices’ by all means make your site mimic these sites. This way, you will be sure your visitors will feel ‘at home’ on your site.

SPAM – AUTOMATED SUBMISSION SOFTWARE

Whatever you do, DON’T SPAM. Some people think Spamming is only when you send porn or Viagra adverts to someone by email. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Spamming is any unsolicited email. If you don’t have permission to send someone an email and you send an email it is SPAM. Plain and simple.
If you get accused of spam, not only will your web-host close you down, you most likely will find it hard to find another hosting company willing to host your site. Don’t spam. It’s not worth it.

Even worse, people will report you for spam to the many automated spam databases and that gets onto the search engines. Once that happens, you are pretty much black-listed. Don’t do it.
