Site Not Found On Search Engines
Posted 19 August 2003 - 10:14 AM
I am new to SEO and am a bit frustrated. My core focus is not SEO (and never will be) but I would like to be able to include SEO services with the packages I offer to my customers. I have done my homework and have not yet found an answer to this question:
WHY is my client's site not found by the search engines?
Mid-June I submitted the site via an automated SEO program (WebCEO) to 30+ engines. The week prior, my client tried submitting himself via addme.com. The site is not optimized yet, but before I can begin the SEO work, I would like to have the site listed so we can track the value of the SEO.
Since being submitted, the site only registers on Lycos, webcrawler, and alltheweb.
I need to suggest a plan to get the site listed and I am a bit unsure of the steps that I should be taking. My first suggestion would be to work on Link Building. But the site is already listed on several referral sites. It does not display any referring links, however, the site name is found on several sites where his competitors receive referring links.
What steps should I take to guarentee a listing? Is there any way to determine if something on the site (or history of SE submissions) is hindering the listing? Should I just be waiting longer???
FYI. The site is www.mitch7e.com
(As I said, the site is not optimized and I definately did not have any influence in its design.)
ANY help is GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks in Advance,

Yes, you need some high quality directory links. And I wouldn't do any more auto submissions, that definitely won't help anything.
After you get some other links, you'll still need to wait a good 4 - 6 weeks before you'll start seeing the site in Google.
