Back in the day, you had to submit your website to search enginethat was how things worked. But with the evolution of the Internet, it is no longer necessary. This blog will go through some facts that will help you decide if search engine submission is necessary for you.
What is search engine submission?
Search engine submission is basically submitting the URL of your website to search engines like Google and Bing so that they can index it for their results. Some search engines may require the URL of every page, and some may only require the URL to the main page and crawl the rest of the website from it.
In the early days of the Internet, search engine submission assured you that your website was included in the search results and thus helped you get more traffic.
Do I really need to submit my website to search engines?
Search engine submission isn’t necessary anymore. But how do search engines find my website then? Well, Google and other search engines aren’t made to depend on manual submissions. That’s where crawling comes in. Search engines use crawling to look for new links on websites and follow them. If the link leads to something useful, the page is added to the index. That means search engines are good at finding new websites on their own. So even if you don’t do anything, your website will eventually be included.
Is the practice of submitting websites extinct? Not really, it’s still a thing, and here’s why.
• Search engines will probably find your website, but for most us, probably isn’t good enough. After all, submitting the site is free of cost and doesn’t take very long, so why risk it?
• When you submit your website, search engines like Google and Bing offer their insight on how they view your site along with tools for testing it.
• You get the opportunity to tell search engines useful information about your website, like how important each page is, this is something they couldn’t have figured out by crawling alone.
In the early days of the Internet, search engines weren’t as sophisticated as they are now. They didn’t have crawlers and indexers but relied on people to submit their websites. With the bots they have today, submission isn’t that important. The Internet has moved on, and so should you.
Instead, you can focus on getting their attention by working on link outreach and creating backlinks to your web pages.
