Putting your business on the web will help to make it more visible to a public who is becoming more Internet aware. To ensure that the public will see your site you need to have it advertised. Unlike the advertisements in newspapers and television you can make your site known by submitting it to search engines.
A search engine is what people use to look up areas of interest on the Internet. The most popular search engines are Yahoo, MSN, Netscape, and Google. But just submitting your website to a search engine does not guarantee that you will be listed at the top of the results. Even though it is extremely difficult to gain a top placement there is something you can do to make sure you are placed as high as possible. To do this there are some simple guidelines to follow.
