Search Engine and Web Directories

Google is probably the most widely used web crawler search engine. One way of letting Google automatically detect and include your web page URL. Submission to Google through its free listing program can be done using the Add URL form available at Add your URL to Google

Having mentioned that, there is no guarantee that Google would include a web page submitted to it by either of the free methods. Also, it might take as long as a month before Google lists your web pages.
Google has advertising program called Adwords that offers you a combination of paid listing and positioning of your pages in search results. Paid listings in Google appear above and to the side of its regular results. These are discussed in detail in the section on Paid Placement programs.
Google allows maximum 5 to 10 web pages from a website to be submitted per day.

Submitting to Teoma

This is owned by Ask Jeeves, one of the popular search engines. Teoma, however, doesn't have a free Add URL feature. Teoma, being a web crawler can always include your homepage for free if there are other web pages pointing to your homepage. Like other engines, it has a paid submission program for a fee of $30 a year. Additional pages can be submitted at $18 per page. Paid service can be accessed at:

Submitting to Inktomi

To submit a homepage using Add URL, you would have to use one of Inktomi's partners. HotBot UK is recommended for this purpose.

The submission through the addurl feature is levied a penalty on ranking if that is the only way the page has been crawled. If the same page gets covered through normal crawling or through paid inclusion, the ranking penalty is removed.

Inktomi has a paid submission program called "Search Submit" that charges a fee of $39 a year for your homepage. More web pages can be added for $25 per web page. After a year, if you do not renew the service, Inktomi might drop your homepage. Inktomi's partners sell this program.
