The following article discusses how to prepare and submit your site to the search engines. HostMySite offers a search engine submission feature. This is a one time $20 charge.

To help improve your chances of being seen in a search results we strongly recommend you prepare your site before we submit it. To prepare your site you can add Meta tags, specifically a Description and Keywords. The Meta tags get added to the code of your index page. They are added at the top of the page. If you are not familiar with how to do this you may need to contact the developer of your website.

The Meta Description is a two to three sentence description about your website. The Meta Keywords are short, descriptive words describing your website. The following is an example of the meta tags:

<TITLE>Title for your page</TITLE>
<META name="keywords" content="short, descriptive, words, describing, your, website">
<META name="description" content="A short description of your website. The description should be approximately 2 or 3 sentences.">

Once the Meta tags have been added please contact and we will perform the submission. It usually takes 6- 8 weeks after we perform the submission for the search engines to find your site.
