What are Search Engines? 
Search Engines are websites that automatically document information available on the web in form of a updatable database. We search through this database. 

Why submit to Search Engines? 
We know that internet users search for websites or information on the web mainly through enquiring on a search engine or directory. The Search Engine responds to this by looking through its database and displaying all the matching sites - all in a jiffy. That is why it is important that your website is listed in the database of major search engines and directories. This way it will be possible for others to locate/find your site. 
Examples of major search engines are Excite, Google and Altavista.

DreamSubmit helps you submit to over 50 of these sites for free and to over 100 of these if you are using the other service options.  

Why learn about Search Engines? 
Understanding how search engines work can help you design your website such that they are suitable for better Search Engine listing. 

Why different Search Engines give different results?
Search Engines slightly differ in the way they collect, store and display information. The number of websites indexed in its database can also vary. In addition, the search engines have different criteria for sequencing/ranking the websites. All these add on to give different results on different search engines.

What are Directories?
Directories are a list of websites compiled by human effort. Editors review websites and add only the ones they think relevant, to the database of the directory. The websites are sometimes rated, reviewed and commented by these editors. And in addition to keyword search, information can be located in a directory by going through subject categories to its sub categories that follow a branchlike structure. The references to websites are included in relevant categories. 
Major directory such as Yahoo has over 22,000 subject categories to list websites. 

Why submit to Directories? 
We know that directories are as much used by internet users to search for websites or information on the web as that of enquiring on a search engine. That is why it is important that your website is also listed in the database of major directories (in addition to getting it listed in search engines). 
The directory responds to keyword search by looking through its database and displaying all the matching sites - all in a jiffy just like a search engine. Alternatively in a directory, users could go through categories into subcategories and find the relevant information. 
Examples of major directories are Yahoo, Open Directory and Lycos. 

DreamSubmit does manual submissions to 25 major search engines and directories and specific category submissions from a choice of 500 regional or topical search engines and directories.

Why Directories give better results?
Since only the relevant sites are listed in a directory, it give results that are much more focussed than that of search engine results. Its also helpful sometimes when the reviewers rate and comment on websites. At the same time, there is a chance that it might have missed listing of an important website because it did not come to its notice.

What are Award sites?
Award sites give an award for your website. The awards are given for different aspects - content, design, concepts, usefulness, and so on. There are over a thousand sites that give awards. Some are awards given by a panel of experts and some are awards given by individual experts. All of them have a look at your site and decide if it is worth their award. If your site qualifies for an award, your site is mentioned on their awards page, with a link is provided for your site, sometimes with comments. And you can display an image of the award in your site. Some of these award sites are also known as cool sites and they have awards like cool site of the day.


Why submit to Award sites? 

First of all, it really feels good to get an award. In addition, your site gets listed as an award winner in these award-giving sites with links to your website. This can generate traffic for your website. If you feel that your site has some unique feature, then submit to these award sites and take a chance.

DreamSubmit helps you submit to about 25 of these sites.


What are Announcement sites?
Announcement sites put up a list of new sites for a certain temporary period of time. These sites are useful for announcing new websites or new additions in your website as webpages or articles. Many of these sites do archive reference to these sites after the announcement period.


Why submit to Announcement sites?
Being listed on announcement sites can get some traffic on your website. Many search engines keep a track of announcement sites to get to know of new sites. That makes it a good idea to submit to some of these.

DreamSubmit helps you submit to about 25 of these sites.


What are FFA sites?
Free For All sites display a rotating list of links to websites. The list is constantly modified as new ones are added. You are on top of the list as soon as you submit and as others get added you keep going down the list until you roll off the list. The time period depends on how many new ones are being added to the list. It could be from a day to a week or more. There are tens of thousands of FFA sites. DreamSubmit would submit to a selected 1000 of these sites. Many of these sites send an email confirmation. Be prepared to get 300 - 400 emails. That's why we have suggested an additional email address.


Why submit to Free For All sites
FFA sites gets your website an initial exposure. Your site also remain linked from many of these sites. Having external links point at your website is a good criteria for getting ranked well on search engines.

DreamSubmit helps you submit to over 1000 of these sites.
