    Hi,

    I am trying to register my website with Google, so that it comes up in searches easily. Can anyone advise me as to the best way to go about doing this? I have entered my site here: Add your URL to Google
    Also, any advice on registering my site with other search engines would be appreciated!
    Thanks for any input,

    Nigel

    FYI - it might take a few weeks to show up in their index. The links provided by the other user help you attain higher rankings once listed and also how to integrate their search into your site. Up to you if you want to submit to multiple and have an email address you don't care about spamming, visit http://www.chami.com/tips/internet/060398I.html which automates the submission to many sites at once. I'd not recommending spending any $ on sites that promise to index you higher, keep the indexes up to date, etc. Save your money and follow the links the user posted about SEO optimization - that's the secret.

    It takes time. Sometimes this is a bad thing. Someone once accidentally uploaded a file with personal data onto our website (we thought it was a blank template, but some old data was still there). If you knew what to Google for, you'd find it. We removed the file as soon as we found out, but it still took a few weeks before the Google cache was updated.

    If you actually googled: "How to register your website with Google"

    You would have the answer

    FYI, your site targets WINDOWS users. You seem to be promoting it on the wrong site.

    It will take a bit to get indexed, but you can let Google know it is there. Go to http://www.google.com/addurl/

    This will at least put it in the queue to be indexed. Saves them trying to find it automatically. Please note all this will do it get it indexed. It will NOT help you in your ranking, if you have poor SEO. From looking at your site, you have not really done any SEO, so I doubt if you will get a high rank anyway.

    You don't register your site. First focus on specific keywords you want to rank for. Then start building some backlinks, link building, add fresh new content, social networking. Those are just a few examples

    However you can submit a sitemap to google.

    Go to Google Webmaster Tools, register your website, point google to your sitemap.xml file (search google for lots of good tutorials about how to create one) and wait. Google will advise you of any problems it had indexing your site.

    Then find sites that are already ranked highly in Google and see if they are willing to link to you. This is more likely to happen if you have a great product, service, content etc.
