ENGINE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
article addresses some general search engine guidelines

1. Submit new pages to
the engines, and then wait to see if the pages make it into the
engines' indexes. Remember that it can literally take weeks (months?)
for pages to get into an index. If the pages don't make it into the
index, don't resubmit them, but look over them carefully to see if you
need to employ additional optimization strategies before resubmitting.
2. Submit all of your important pages to the search engines that allow
you to submit more than just the main page of your site. None of the
spiders crawl as well as they say they do. Sometimes they do an
excellent job, but in most cases, they don't.
3. After a page has made it into the index, unless you make
significant changes to the page or the page has dropped from the
index, don't resubmit it.
4. If a page is dropped from the index, wait for two weeks to see if
the page is picked back up, and then resubmit it.
5. If you've made significant changes to a page, resubmit it, but no
sooner than 21 days since your last submission. It might benefit you
to play it safe!
6. Consider adding visible links to all of your important pages on the
main page of your site. Give the engines something to spider! What
about using hidden links, which has been a popular strategy in the
past? Approach this practice with caution. AV is beginning to look for
hidden links, so try to stay away from them. You'll not necessarily
have trouble based upon their spider, however, they do have people
reviewing, and they are looking at this closer.
7. Submit your pages manually, or use a submission service or
software that mimics a manual submission. By that, we mean that
the software or service waits for verification before submitting
another URL. If you use a submission software program, make sure that
you're able to choose the schedule for your submissions. If you can't,
you may find yourself in trouble with the engines for over-submitting.
Do not use web based mass submissions. They have the potential to do
more harm than had you never even submitted at all.
8. Keep in mind that if it takes too long for an engine to access your
site, it probably won't get indexed.
