Almost everyone drives a blog/website today. The bloggers or webmasters fighting hard for their online presence as it is important to target customers. For this, it is important to have your brand name (website/blog) in search engines results.

To get your brand names on the search engines you must tell them about your website/blog by submitting website to search engines. This process is also called as indexing site to search engines. It means you asking search engine crawlers to come and go through your website/blog, finding new and updated information to report back to the search engine.

Once documents are processed, they add them to Google’s searchable index only if they are determined to be quality content. Search Engine Visibility’s submission features make it easier by providing an automated sitemap submission to certain search engines.

By doing this you are ensuring that the engines are aware of your website/blog and at least consider indexing it the next time they update their respective libraries.

The great thing is some search engines provides you the feature, using which you can easily submit your web page URL and ask them for indexing.

I suggest submitting website to search engines manually including Google, Bing, Yahoo!. Although other search engines except Google are not much popular, still they have millions of users. So you should consider them.

Let’s move to the methods of manually submitting your website to search engines.

Submitting site to Google:

Submitting to Google is very quick and easy.

  1. Open Google Search Console.
  2. Select your Property(Website/blog). Don’t have your site in Google search console,  submit your site to Google Webmaster Tools.
  3. On LHS from the Dashboard, Go to Crawl.
  4. Leave URL blank.
  5. Choose Desktop from the drop down for the first time.
  6. Click Fetch button.
  7. Repeat step 4, 5 and 6, but this time choose Mobile: Smartphone option in step 5.
    Google search console submit
  8. Request Indexing button will appear on the fetched result, you can click that to a ask for indexing.
    Request indexing

Note: The page will be considered for indexing only if it meets our quality guidelines and avoids the use of noindex directives.

Submitting to Bing or Yahoo!:

Yahoo search has been powered by Microsoft’s Bing search engine. So the process will remain the same as Bing.

  1. Go to Bing Webmaster Tools.
  2. Log in to your account.
  3. Select your Site >> Configure My site. (How To Add Your New Site To Bing Webmaster Tools)
  4. Enter Your URL (one per line).
  5. Select Submit URL.

When you submit website to search engines, it could take some time to get indexed. Sometimes, your page may not get indexed within given time. If you noticed this, resubmit the URL.

Wrapping Words

So, this is how you can submit website to search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. It’s always recommended to resubmit your website using these methods after you update layout or a theme for your website/blog.
