How to Promote your website high in search engines

I've tried to make SelfPromotion.com as easy as possible to use, but the process of site promotion does have a bit of a learning curve. This tutorial will walk you through the process of the initial stages of promoting your site, and hopefully get you "over the hump." I strongly recommend that you print it out (or keep it up in a second window) and refer to it as you do your first promotion.

The very first thing you should do before you startpromoting your website is to make sure that your website is properly prepared for the search engines. It is a waste of time to tell all the search engines about your wonderful new site if, when they arrive to index it and add it to their database, it isn't search-engine friendly. If nobody can find you because your ranking sucks, being in the search engines won't help you!

This is why I have a special page devoted to search engine optimization. It will teach you not only how to properly choose keywords, "meta tags" and other page elements, but also helps you think about what keywords to target. Most people fail in web-promotion because they are not targeting the right keywords!.

The very next thing you should do after promoting your site to the search engines (which we'll get to in a minute) is properly submit to Yahoo! and the other major indexes (in particular, Open Directory). I do not autosubmit to these indexes because a properly done manual submission is essential to getting the best possible results. A proper optimized Yahoo listing will often generate 25-50% of your clickthroughs, so it's absolutely crucial to do it right. Furthermore, if you do do it right, you'll often get in in 2-3 weeks, whereas the major search engines often take months to add you. So if you want to get hits quick, you have to get into Yahoo. This is why I have (you guessed it), a special page devoted to the tricks and techniques of getting into Yahoo properly. Even if you are already in Yahoo, you should read this page, because most Yahoo listings are terribly sub-optimal, and you can often get a revision to your listing that will double your traffic from them.

So, assuming you've read the search engine optimization page, and that you promise (cross your heart!) to read the tips on getting into Yahoo page when you're done with the tutorial, sit back and enjoy as my oldest son, James (age 6 when this page was originally written, now he's got his learner's permit!), promotes his first website...

The first thing James notices is the row of Navigation palettes down the right-hand side of every page on the site. At the top of the palettes are three tabs. The Help tab pops up a new window containing the main Help & FAQ page (which contains even more in-depth help on how to use the site), while the Map tab brings up a site map page with descriptions of all the pages.
