The Resubmission Myth

Written by Bobby Heard

Sorepparttar thinking goes,repparttar 127828 more times you resubmit your site torepparttar 127829 search engines,repparttar 127830 better chance that you have of getting torepparttar 127831 top for your keywords. I canít tell you how much it aggravates me when I hear about another searach engine optimization company who is selling resubmission packages to struggling small-business owners who just want to find one ďprofessionalĒ in this industry who isnít charging them ridiculous prices for NO results. Unfortunately, not only do their clients not understand that they are totally wasting their money and not improving their siteís rankings at all, they are actually paying a company to potentially crush their rankings.

The search engines are a touchy group. As you can imagine, they get hassled constantly, as they holdrepparttar 127832 key to most businessí success. They have systems in place to handlerepparttar 127833 incredible amount of information that they must organize and database. The submission process is simply one of those systems they have, used to inform them of your web siteís presence if they were previously unaware of its existence. Thatís all that it is. Once they are aware ofrepparttar 127834 URL of your web site, they will continue to go to it, update it, and most importantly, keep it in their database. So whatísrepparttar 127835 harm in resubmission you ask? Well, itís like sitting in class when your teacher is taking attendance. She calls out your name and you say that you are present. Then, EVERY 5 minutes forrepparttar 127836 rest ofrepparttar 127837 day, you put up your hand and remind her that you are still present. This may sound ridiculously stupid, but in essence, that is what you are doing torepparttar 127838 search engines when you resubmit to them, and search engines can sometimes react by throwing your listing out of their database, just like your teacher is likely to react by throwing you out of her class.

By continually submitting your site, you are creating more work for a major company that is trying (as every company surely is) to create a cost-efficient operation. Your continual submission means that they have more information to process and thus, more money to spend employing someone to deal with that information. The search engines, just like all of us and any successful business, hate wasting money where they donít need to. So if you continually resubmit your site, they get progressively irritated, and will sometimes take drastic measures such as banning your site from their database.
