|Will my site show up in the search engines right away?
For some engines, yes. Most search engines take from 1-6 weeks (or more!) to update their listings. Optimize6 submits your site immediately so that your site will be listed as soon as possible.
Is there anything else can I do to improve my search engine rankings?
Sure! See below:
- Say it with text! Jpegs, Gifs and Flash look great around your content, but none are read by search engines when they visit your site.
- Don't forget to META! Ask your web developer to place "META Tags" on each of the webpages you'd like search engines to find. These should include a title, description and keywords. For more information about META tags, Click Here.
- Get to know your peers! Links to your website will help improve your site's ranking in some search engines, so it pays (literally) to learn of other websites that might be interested in linking to you.

- Budget your time! Search Engines can take from 1-6 weeks (sometimes even longer!) to update their listings. Submitting your site before it exists won't work, so plan ahead and make the extra time work for you.

Can you guarantee that my site will appear at the top of the lists generated by most search engines?
At Optimize6 we advise customers not to work with SEO businesses that provide ranking guarantees. Search Engine ranking is determined by search engines, not SEO firms. Given that, and the methods by which search engines determine rank, the only way any SEO business can provide a guarantee is through unethical business practices, or by intentionally guaranteeing something they have no intention of backing up.
Optimize6 does guarantee:
- That we will submit your site to the major search engines, in the degree to which you choose.
- That any site submitted through Optimize6 which does not violate local laws or search engine policies
will be submitted to the major search engines.
- That the majority of all sites submitted through Optimize6
will see their overall ranking improve
What's resubmission all about?
Resubmission helps to maintain and improve your overall site ranking. It's a simple way of reminding search engines about your site.
Can I submit my site before it's online?
Good idea, but no. Most search engines like to visit your site to make sure all information is accurate and to gather any additional information. If your site isn't available yet, some search engines will abandon the submission information altogether and you might end up delaying your inclusion in their engines even longer.
What is SEO?
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of assuring a website's high rank within internet search engines. The most important method of SEO is effective, intelligent, thorough submissions of your website information to the most used search engines on the web.
