Is your website on Google? As a website owner, you may decide that you wish to feature your site on the Google Search Engine. It will not appear on Google unless it has been indexed by Googlebot, the search engine robot. Did you know, it's completely free?
You can think of a search engine as a directory millions of websites, or more importantly, hundreds of millions of individual web pages.
Search engine databases are created by internet robots called spiders. When your website is visited by a robot, it becomes indexed. Various terms are used to describe this process, but it means that your site has been:
Google Search Engine
Before you submit your site, why not check to see if your web page is already indexed?
Submit Your Website to Google
It is not necessary to submit every individual web page on your website. Just submit the home page and Googlebot will take care of the other web pages.
You can submit your website to the Google Search Engine free of charge using the link below:
Add your Website to Google
Google does not add all submitted websites to the search engine index, nor does it make any predictions or guarantees about when or if they will appear.
In our experience, the indexing procedure happens within days or weeks, rather than months.
Submit your Site to Yahoo - this is also a completely free service, but you do need to have a Yahoo! account.
Submit your URL to MSN - also known as Live Search, this is completely free.
What is Google AdSense?
You can think of 'AdSense' as a new business opportunity. It's completely free. Yes, it's an opportunity for you to make money from your own website. The advertising programme is made up of 2 key elements:
AdSense for Search
AdSense for Content
AdSense for Search
This feature will allow you to add a Google Search Bar to your own website. So, this means that visitors to your website can search for information contained in your site.
And what's more, when a search is performed, the search engine returns Google AdSense advertising in the search results. It's fully automatic and the advertisements are directly related to the search query.
For example, if you search for 'website design', this means that the 'Ads by Goooooogle' in the search results will also be about website design.
Don't worry if you are not using search technology directly within your site. Once again, it's all taken care of. For example, it will work perfectly well on a simple HTML site.
AdSense for Content
Google AdSense is a quick and easy way for website owners to display Google Ads on their website. When people visit your website and click the Google Ads, you get paid money. Simple!
The advertising served up by Google is related to what your visitors are looking for on your site. In other words, it's context sensitive. For example, if your website is about 'recruitment', then you can be pretty sure that the presentation of 'Ads by Goooooogle' on your site will also be about recruitment.
In fact, it's even better than that. Google AdSense is looking at the content of each and every web page on your website. So, this means that the content of the Google Advertising will align with the information on each web page in your site.
It's completely automatic and you don't need to worry about it.
