The Search Engines Want to Know You Better
Google, Yahoo and MSNLive are just itching to get to know more about your website and they are steadily adding tools to make it easier for you to tell them more, learn more and analyze just what’s going on in their world when it comes to your websites.
Time was when figuring out how to get your site listed by the search engines was a mysterious sort of witchcraft (or at least that what some folks wanted you believe.) The search engines want to return the best results they possibly can when people use their engines so it just makes sense for them to make it easier for your content to go through the indexing process as a possible candidate for search engine results.
Google’s newly updated submit center ties together many of the ways you might submit content to Google.
Go visit and consume the content on the following sites and you will gain a great education on how and why to focus more attention on organic search results.
