Listing Your Pages with the Major Search Sites

If you want people to find your pages, you absolutely must submit a request to each of the six major search sites to index your pages. Each of these sites has a form for you to fill out with the address, a brief description of the site, and in some cases a category or list of keywords with which your listing should be associated. These forms are easy to fill out; you can easily do all six of them in an hour with time left over to list yourself at one or two specialized directories you might have found as well. (How did you find the specialized directories? Through the major search sites, of course!)

Even though listing with the major search engines is easy and quick, it can be a bit confusing: Each of them uses different terminology to identify where you should click to register your pages. Table 23.1 may save you some frustration; it includes the address of each major search engine, along with the exact wording of the link you should click to register (as of mid-1999).
