But how can you get listed in major search engines without paying for listing?
The answer lies in a *simple* linking strategy. And no...I am not referring to link farms which will probably ensure you never get listed.
The free and easy way to get around all of this quagmire, is to link to a site which is already listed.
Search engines look for sites with related content and some of them also want discover site naturally by their spiders. So if a site is already listed, and you link to that site, next time search engine is doing its spidering cycle. It will spin down to your link and add it.
Bingo, you're added faster than you can say free site submission.
I know for a fact that this works because my site, (a one page sales letter, with only one external link) http://www.advanced-webtechniques.com is listed in both Google and Yahoo and I never submitted them, or paid for submission.
Now how do you get a link on another site, preferably a popular site, as these are spidered more frequently?
You can do this by : a:) Contacting webmaster of that site b:) Writing articles
My personal preference is option b.
With this option, you write your article, add your resource box at end of article, make sure to include your website address and submit your articles to various article announcement sites.
If a site likes your article it may be archived on their website and search engine spiders will pick up link,which will also have added benefit of *relevant content*
If your article is carried by a lot of newsletters and websites, you will also have increased "link popularity" which will boost your site's ranking.
