When a site is submitted to the search engines the search engines uses software called "spiders" to crawl the pages of your website through your internal site navigation and captures vital information about each page and in puts it into their database.
The information captured include Meta tags, content, H1 tags, Alt tags, sites that you link to and sites that links back to your site. The Meta tags are at the top of your web page in the code. They are in what is called the header. The Meta tags are very important to the search engines because they tell them what is on the page.
Along with the H1 tags Alt tags and the content in the body of the text on the web page this gives the search engines the information they need to index or put into their database your web page. It is very important that your Meta tags are specific to each page of your site. Do not just copy and paste the same Meta tags to every page on your website. There's a big explanation from that old and that later. There are several ways to get web pages into the search engines a database (indexed).
Submit your site to the different search engines. There are a lot of sites, for small fee, that will take your indexed pager homepage and submit it to hundreds or thousands of search engines over and over every month for the rest of your life. Run don't walk away from the sites. If you keep trying to submit your site, especially to Google, Yahoo and MSN, this may appear to them as spam. Spammy is bad! I suggest that you do not even register with Google, yahoo or MSN unless you have 6 to 9 weeks to sit around and wait for your website to be indexed.
Article marketing is a great way to not only get your site indexed quickly but build quality links back to your site and establish yourself or your company as an expert in your industry. You can write an article yourself or we can write an optimized article of a 300 to 500 word article for you.
The Search engines constantly index the article distributions sites for new content. Once your article is published it only takes a day or so for the spiders to follow your links back to your site and index it. This is much faster than waiting 6 weeks or so then just submitting your site directly to the search engines.
