Search Engine Submission to Spider Search Engines. "Submit URL" options on search engine portals unleashes so-called Spider software, also referred to as "Keyword Search Engine" spiders. Search engines which are "meta tag spider" search engines utilize "search engine spiders" to search a submitted web page looking for <meta title>, <meta description> and <meta keywords> contained within the HTML coding of the submitted web page. Once this meta tag information is retrieved by the search engine spider the web page is then indexed in the search engine database. Meta tag information is utilized to produce search engine keyword query results displayed by keyword search engines. Example of proper meta tag for meta tag search engine submission:
<TITLE> Place The Web Page Title Here. </TITLE>
<META name="description" content="Enter the web page description here..">
<META name="keywords" content="Place web page keywords here separated by comma without paces.">
Search engine success to spider or keyword search engines requires a Webmaster's web pages have the above information, as a minimum, properly placed between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> html coding of each page they submit to any meta tag keyword search engine. Meta tag keyword search engines do not index any web page submitted to their search engine database which is missing this information. Meta tag search engines require a web master to make use of the "Submit URL", "Add URL" or "Suggest A Site" hyperlink located somewhere on their search engine web pages (this action instructs the search engine's spider to visit the submitted web page). Many, however not all, keyword meta tag search engines are in business today only to collect, then later sell, the email address of the webmaster submitting a web page to their search engine.
Search engines, which are reputable meta tag keyword search engines are listed below. A webmaster can identify a valid meta tag "free URL submission keyword search engine" by viewing which search engine portals or Internet Service Providers utilize their search engine database. Webmasters should be suspicious of search engines displaying web pages on their so-called "search engine web site" which have a hyperlink displaying "Add Link". These search engines are usually not true Internet search engines. Many of these "Add Link" search engines, but not all, are simply link exchange search engines, web master link builder opportunities and web site link farms. Webmasters submitting to these so-called keyword search engines who are desiring to build link popularity should maintain a free email address for business email use.
Search Engine Submission to Crawler Search Engines. Submit URL to these "Web Page Crawler" search engines releases a software crawler. A search engine web page crawler searches the web page you submit and follows any hyperlinks found on it to other web pages. Web pages are then indexed for another visit at some later time. Unfortunately it may take many months for the search engine crawler to "crawl" every page in the root directory of a web site. Search engine Crawlers also only eventually crawl down one level (directory) of a domain. Should a web site be created utilizing a root/directory/sub-directory structure the crawler will not find the sub-directory on its own. Submitting a web site to a crawler search engine results in, EVERY document, graphic, personal file, personal picture, and database being made available from that search engine database. The search engine crawler must be restricted by creating a web site robots.txt file and individual web page meta tag robots exclusion line.
Search Engine Submission to Robots. Search engines which are defined as "Robots" are a combination of Crawler and Spider software driven search engine. A "Robot" travels the "information superhighway" searching for domain names and IP addresses. When one is discovered is it added to a queue for the Crawler (above) to crawl at a later time. When the Crawler finishes the crawl of the web site and indexes web pages the information is again queued for a Spider. A Spider (further above) then visits the web pages, gathers meta tag information for inclusion in the search engine database. The web pages are then further indexed, classified and assigned a page rank, according to search criteria relevancy, prior to search engine database inclusion.
Search engine robots have, since 1993, performed their amazing operation on affiliate, affiliate online shopping, affiliate program, auto, dent, design, email, hail damage repair, software, and weather web pages included within this web site.
Search Engine Robot Exclusion.
Search engine Crawler searches for and obeys the "robots text" file. A robots text file instructs the individual search engine Crawler which web pages it can index in it's database and which web page to exclude from search engine database indexing. The Robots Exclusion Protocol (robots text file) is a method that allows Web site administrators to indicate to visiting robots (Crawlers) which parts of their web site should not be indexed.
|A simple robots.txt file follows:
User-agent: * (this robots text applies to all search engine crawlers)
Disallow: / (all web pages can be crawled and included in all search engines)
