Submit your website to Google and Yahoo

One of the easiest way to increase your website traffic it so make sure you are listed in the major Search Engines.  Google and Yahoo will probably find your site eventually, but to make sure they know you exist and that you have something someone is searching for, it helps to let them know.

Submit your sites to both Google and Yahoo just to remind them to come visit and index.

Even if your website is already in the search results, it doesn't hurt to add a sitemap to your website and resubmit that sitemap to the search engines.

Getting Found On The Web

We’ve been asked many times about how to get more traffic to your websites. There’s no easy or cheap solution.

After all, they want their search results to give the user excellent info.

If you need help writing more “gooder” content for your website, contact us. We have excellent Copy Writers available to us. (I just don’t use them, so my content can be real badly riten.)
