ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
How long will it take for my site to be listed in the
The site inclusion process varies from one search engine to another. Some
search engines will list
your site as soon as you confirm your submission by clicking a link in the
confirmation e-mails that they send you. Others have human editors
who review individual submissions and decide which ones to list and which to
reject. Most search engines take one to ten weeks to list new sites.
How often should I submit my site?
In many cases you need to submit your site only once. However, not
all search engines and directories will accept your submission the first
time. Some drop listings after a period of time.
Therefore, we recommend that you resubmit your site every month to achieve
Will search engines ban my site if I submit more than
If that were the case, then unscrupulous webmasters could simply submit their competitors'
websites to Google ten times a day to get them banned.
If your site is already listed on a search engine, subsequent submissions
would be ignored.
While duplicate submissions are generally harmless, moderation is the key.
We recommend that you submit your site no more often than once a month.
Should I submit every page of my site?
Generally, you need to submit only the homepage of your site. Major
search engines have robots that will follow links from your homepage and
index all your subpages. Some search engines and directories may interpret
submission of multiple pages from a single site as spam. Therefore, we recommend that you submit
only your homepage and a few of your most important subpages.
What should I do when I get failed submissions while
using your automated submission system?
Our submission script is constantly updated to minimize submission failures.
Some problems, such as an internet connection errors and downed servers, are
beyond our control. In the rare instances that a submission fails to
go through, right-click on the "Click here" link next to the failed
submission and open it in a new
window. You'll then be able to submit your site manually to that
I have repeatedly submitted my site, but it still does
not show up on the major search engines like Google or Yahoo! What
should I do?
To get listed faster on the major search engines, we recommend that you
text link on one of our popular sites like
ArticleWorld.net. Search engine robots work by following links on a
page. If your link appears on a site frequently visited by the robots,
chances are you'll get listed in the major search engines within a matter of
days, if not hours.
I no longer need to use your search engine submitter.
How do I cancel my membership?
Memberships may be cancelled at any time through your PayPal account.
If you purchase a monthly membership on the 1st of the month and cancel it
on the 15th, your membership will continue to the end of the month, but you
will not be billed for subsequent months. Due to recent abuses of our
refund policy, we no longer issue refunds for monthly memberships.
However, we continue to issue refunds for multi-month memberships on a
prorated basis. For example, if you cancel a 6-month membership after
a month and a half of usage, your membership will extend to the end of the
second month, and you will be refunded for the four remaining months.

What are the differences between search engines and
While the differences between search engines and web directories are not
always obvious, web directories generally list links by categories and
subcategories, whereas search engines rely on keyword searches for results.
Most web directories also have search boxes, but a visitor could also follow
the categories and subcategories to find links relevant to her interest.
Search engines often have robots that crawl and index sites on the web,
whereas web directories list only links submitted to them. Since
web directories use a hierarchy of categories and subcategories to list
sites, their pages are often crawled and indexed by the search engine
robots. This is why having your site listed on web directories is an especially effective
tool to build your
link popularity. Your link is grouped with similar
sites under a common category, making your listing more relevant
in the eyes of the search engines. to the link popularity.
I thought your subscription-based URL submission
script also submits to web directories, not just search engines. Why
do I need your guaranteed web directory inclusion/submission service?
Our script does submit to some web directories. However, many top
web directories do not allow automated submissions. In fact, none of
our directories allow accept automated submissions. That is why your
site must be submitted manually to them.

Why should I buy a text link?
Major search engines, such as Google, Yahoo!, and MSN factor link
popularity heavily into their ranking algorithms. While you could (and
should!) play around with the HTML code of your page to help it rank higher, external links
are more important. A link is considered a vote for a site, so the
more quality inbound links a site has, the more relevant it is to the search
engine. In addition to their
SEO benefits, text links are an excellent source of direct
traffic to your site.
How long should I buy a text link on a site?
It depends on what you want from the link. If your goal is to get
a new site indexed faster by the major search engines like Google, Yahoo!
and MSN, then one or two months are sufficient. For search engine
optimization purposes your link needs to be on a site for at least a few
months to achieve significant search ranking boost. This is because
search engines factor link age into their ranking algorithms.
What is an anchor text and why does it matter?
The anchor text is the clickable portion of the text link; if your entire
string of text is clickable, the whole thing is the anchor text. In
the text link, Free Website Content,
the entire phrase "Free Website Content" is the anchor text linking to
Your anchor text should contain the keyword or key phrase that you are
targeting. This not only makes your link more descriptive and,
therefore, more likely to generate qualified direct traffic, but also makes
more relevant to the search engines. A good example of a bad anchor
text is "Click Here".
