You don't need seo (search engine optimization) to submit your site to Google, Yahoo or Bing. It's also free to get into the big three search engine listings. Btw, Bing powers Yahoo results.
The best way to actually get into the top search engines is for the search engine spider to find your site through a link that is already on another website, one that Google already has in it’s index. For example, link from a blog, forum or other website. Any link from another website will do as long as it seen as a link.
What about directory submission services to help me get a website into search engines?
Of course you can submit/register your site to directories like Google, Yahoo and Bing.
(PSSSTTTT ... Yahoo is now powered by bing ~ since 2013)
Here is a list to get you started:
- Submit A Site To Google
- Submit My Site To Bing
- Submit my site to Yandex
- Submit my website to Baidu
- Submit RSS feed to Google
- Submit Google Webmaster Tools
- Submit site to Bing Webmaster Tools
How social media sites can help get your site indexed by search engines
If you already do it, then it can't hurt!
Google have their spiders crawl over Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus. Apparently, Bing spiders Facebook pages too (it is believed that they have an agreement with Facebook). Links on these websites often spread to other places on the web, meaning, creating a profile on social networks can help a website get into search engines.
Thinking long term.
Search engine submission is a not a quick fix.
To be successful you need to keep on top of these things in particular:
Position your keywords in the most effective place and structure your pages correctly.
(I will have more on this in future posts)
Register with as many web directories as possible.
Build a great site and have unique content that other websites will want to link to.
Concentrating your efforts on these things and within a few months you'll start to see the fruits of you labour.
I know all this can be confusing and overwhelming but just take a deep breathe and in time you will get there!
