Need help promoting your site? Easily submit your site to the most
popular search engines using LinkMe, FastVirtual's free web site submission
LinkMe can submit your site to these major search engines in as little
as 5 minutes. Once your site has been accepted, it will also be included
in other popular directories that feed from these results, such as Alexa
You can resubmit your site as often as you like, and there's no limit
to the number of URLs you can promote. However, we do not recommend submitting
your site more than once per month, as some search engines may consider
this spamming and remove your link.
To access LinkMe, please visit your account control panel.
Note: It can take up to 4 weeks for your site to appear in search
results, depending on the engine/directory. You should allow for this
the first time you submit your site.
Improving Your Search Engine Ranking Position
One of the things that search engines look for when ranking your site
is relevant back-links. This, as well as other factors, determines your
web site's popularity.
You may have a great product or service. You may even have fine-tuned
your web pages for relevant keywords, but unless other web sites are linking
to yours, it is unlikely you will achieve a good position in the search
engines. In fact, your site might not be listed at all if nobody links
To increase your popularity, you can establish an organized reciprocal
linking campaign, whereby you exchange links with other related web sites.
It is important that you only trade links with relevant and related web sites,
and that they do not have too many links on the same page, as this will
dilute the value of the reciprocal link.
You should also avoid link farms and free-for-all listings -- these
are sites that exist solely for the purpose of providing links, and contain
many uncategorized, unrelated links. Such links are of no benefit to you
and your return link could adversely affect your ranking.
To help you get started, FastVirtual provides a free
Link Directory Script,
which you can place on your site to allow visitors to post their link.
If you need a more advanced solution, there are many commercial link management
packages and scripts available.
Establishing and maintaining an effective web site promotion campaign
can be a time-consuming process. However, this is essential if you want
to improve your position in the search engines. If done correctly, reciprocal
linking and web site optimization can produce dramatic results fairly quickly.
