But, our site is brand new, andrepparttar advantage to Yahoo!'s pay inclusion program is that your site will be reviewed for possible inclusion within 7 working days. So, depending on our finances, we may want to add Yahoo!'s pay inclusion costs, just so we can get fast visibility for our new site.

(According to Nielson NetRankings in October 2002,repparttar 128145 audience reach of Yahoo! was 28.5%. Source: http://www.searchenginewatch.com/reports/netratings.html)

Total of Yearly Pay Inclusion Costs Including Yahoo!, but not AltaVista: $520 (Includesrepparttar 128146 Inktomi engines,repparttar 128147 Fast engines, Teoma, Ask Jeeves, and Yahoo!. This does NOT include AltaVista.)

Total of Yearly Pay Inclusion Costs Including both Yahoo! and AltaVista: $714 (Includesrepparttar 128148 Inktomi engines,repparttar 128149 Fast engines, Teoma, Ask Jeeves, Yahoo!, and AltaVista.)

What About Google?

Google http://www.google.com/addurl.html

Google isrepparttar 128150 only major engine that doesn't have a pay inclusion program. So,repparttar 128151 only way to get your pages intorepparttar 128152 index is to letrepparttar 128153 spider findrepparttar 128154 pages on its own through links on other pages or to submit through Google's free add URL.

Personally, I always letrepparttar 128155 spider findrepparttar 128156 pages on its own and never submit to Google manually. By going this route, while your site is busy being spidered byrepparttar 128157 other engines and you're busy building link popularity, byrepparttar 128158 time that Google "finds" your pages, you should have had time to build some link popularity, which we all know is so important with Google.

According to Nielson NetRankings in October 2002,repparttar 128159 audience reach of Google alone was 29.2%. Add to that AOL at 19.7%, Yahoo! at 28.5%, and Netscape at 5.5%, and it's quite easy to seerepparttar 128160 power behind Google. Source: (http://www.searchenginewatch.com/reports/netratings.html)

In Conclusion

Rather than worrying about submitting your pages manually to each ofrepparttar 128161 major engines, take advantage ofrepparttar 128162 tremendous benefits of using pay inclusion.

Then, let Google find your pages on its own, and hold off submitting torepparttar 128163 Yahoo! directory for a while.

Based on our example here, if we were submitting three pages, our total yearly cost would be either $221 or $415, depending on whether or not we chose to use AltaVista's pay inclusion program.

So, as you can see,repparttar 128164 benefits far outweighrepparttar 128165 costs. Repeating what I said earlier in this article,repparttar 128166 "key" to successful submissions these days can be summed up in two words: pay inclusion.
