I hope you enjoyed last week`s SEO Myth debunked. I`ve posted them here on our redesigned Customer Paradigm website: www.customerparadigm.com/articles-media/

This week`s SEO Myth we hear quite a bit: we`ll hand-submit your site. Read more below >>

SEO Myths Debunked #3:
We`ll Hand-Submit Your Site to Search Engines.

The Myth:

We will hand-submit your site to the search engines so you`ll be indexed right away.

The Dodge:
Trust us. If you don`t hand-submit your site, you`ll never be indexed. And if you don`t have us keep submitting to the search engines each month, you`ll drop in rankings.

The Facts:
Google and other search engines mostly ignore sites that are submitted through the forms on their site.

Google will often completely ignore new sites, placing them in a “sandbox.” This helps prevent fly-by-night companies from being indexed, and gives preference to companies that have stood the test of time (at least half a year).

Relevant inbound links are what matter, and will get your site indexed and out of the Google Sandbox.

Google spiders through other sites, and looks for links pointing to your site. If enough relevant sites link to your site, chances are good that Google will pay attention.

If your site is remarkable enough for someone to write a blog post, twitter post or Facebook comment, your site will be indexed. That person is staking their personal reputation to link their friends and site visitors to your site.

Here`s what Google says about how sites are added to their search index:
“Inclusion in Google`s search results is free and easy; you don`t even need to submit your site to Google. Google is a fully automated search engine that uses software known as “spiders” to crawl the web on a regular basis and find sites to add to our index. In fact, the vast majority of sites listed in our results aren`t manually submitted for inclusion, but found and added automatically when our spiders crawl the web.”

The Summary:
Google and other search engines will automatically find your site without the need for any site submissions. To get indexed, your time will be better spent focusing on obtaining links from other sites.
