How to submit a website to the search engines.

Submitting your new website to the major search engines is the first thing you should do once your website has gone live. After all there is no point having a website if no one I going to be able to find it.

You should only need to do this once and for a new website, after your site has aged and has acquired incoming links from other websites, the search engines should automatically find it and any updates.
