Written by Ralph Tegtmeier

A good automatic submission program is quite undetectable if you do it right. So what constitutes a "good" submitter? To qualify,repparttar program must:

- Conveyrepparttar 128421 correct referral (submission) URL.

- Transmit all required data (e.g. email address, where required).

- Userepparttar 128422 engine's specific correct submission syntax (by no means a given - this requires extensive and regular updates).

- Allow for customizable submission limits (e.g. 5 pages per domain and day).

- Apply realistic time delays when submitting multiple pages (this would typically mimic manual submission speed).

- Check submission pages for availability (else, it will generate an error message, wastingrepparttar 128423 search engines' system resources and bandwidth).

- Offer extensive submission reports including snapshots of search engine error message pages to remediate faulty submission processes and/or schedule resubmissions if required.

Inrepparttar quest to develop and publishrepparttar 128420 world's number one business related web site I knew we had cracked it when we entered NorthernLight at No 7 out of 4,876,060 sites onrepparttar 128421 key phrase 'business start up'.

Coming from a Sales and marketing background, with a background in IT, but no knowledge ofrepparttar 128422 Internet, I had to approach everything fromrepparttar 128423 ground up, with an open mind.

This proved to be of significant advantage, since I was prepared to listen to everyone, try anything, rejectrepparttar 128424 bad and improve onrepparttar 128425 good.

We also appear on Lycos, Google, AltaVista, Excite and a myriad of other search engines and know that with 12 months work ahead we will berepparttar 128426 No1 Business site by 2002.

So here are my ten top tips for successful web placement

1 Most web designers assume thatrepparttar 128427 customer isrepparttar 128428 reader, wrong. It's a bit like assumingrepparttar 128429 customer for an old people's home isrepparttar 128430 resident - it isn't it'srepparttar 128431 residents 45 year old daughter. Therefore sell to her andrepparttar 128432 place is full.

The main customer for a web site is 'gulliver' or 'arachnia' or whateverrepparttar 128433 search engine spider is called. Observe it, profile it, get to know it intimately, what does it like and loathe. How can you get it's attention?

2 In my experience only AltaVista takes seriously. I know this because I used mingmong21 as a keyword and, despite allrepparttar 128434 search engines we appear on, if I search on all of them for 'mingmong21' I only turn up on AltaVista. Don't put too much store in keywords.
