You have built a great site. You've included a lot of good content and interesting tips for your readers. You've made sure all your key words are in place. Now what?
Make sure you have a site map and submit that site map to the major search engines. A site map is a special XML document that notifies everyone that you are posted to the net and open for business.
Before you even post your site, though, make sure it is web compliant. There are a couple of sites on the web where you can check the code. The cleaner your code, the better chance you will have in the billions of pieces of data that are currently competing for attention on the net.
You'll want to make sure that all your links are good. Search engines coming across a site with a lot of missing links may assume that it is an old, abandoned site.
Once you're sure that your site is in good working order, submit your site map to the major search engines. It may take some time for you to arrive. But we will find you.
