If you've already
got a website up and running, try submitting it to search engines regularly.
Once a month is great if you have constant changes to your content.
Most search engines will "spider" your site within a week, but some of
the major search engines take up to 4 weeks. Unless you like alot
of email, I suggest not submitting your site to so called "FREE FOR ALL
LINKS or FFA", I've found these are followed up with mass amounts of email
advertising. Though some of the mail is useful, most are j-mail!!
Free Domain Name Checker
I think this http://pdq.to/
is one of the best things out in the internet. It is especially useful
for those of you that have personal pages with crazy long web addresses.
If your a site owner you can see the possiblities and they do offer other
services. You have to check out the site and try it for yourself,
it's worth it!!
