Google Add URL:
You can submit your site to Google here,  http://www.google.com/addurl/ and probably your site will be indexed in around 1-2 months.

Please keep in mind that Google may ignore your submission request for a long time. Even in case it happens to crawl your site, it may not actually index it if there are no links pointing to it. However, if Google finds your site by following the links from other pages that have already been indexed and are regularly re-spidered, all chances are that you will be included without any submission. These chances are much higher if Google finds your site by reading a directory listing, such as DMOZ (www.dmoz.org).

So, you can submit your site and it may help but links are the best way to get indexed.

In the past, Google basically performed monthly updates called among the experts "Google Dance". At the beginning of the month, a deep crawl of the web took place, then a couple of weeks the Page Rank for the retrieved pages was calculated, and at the end of the month the index database was finally updated. These days, Google maintains a database which is updated continuously. The "Dances" still take place from time to time but only when they need to make major changes to their algorithm. For example, their Dance in November 2003 (known as Google Florida Update) was actually their first for about six months. In January 2004, Google started another dance (Austin Update) where pages that had disappeared during the "Florida" showed up again. Instead, many pages that hadn't disappeared first time were now gone.

In February 2004 Google updated once more and things settled down. Most people's lost pages came back and although the results were rather different to those shown before Florida , at least pages didn't seem to be gone for no reason.

At the moment, Google claims to have a little more than 8,000,000,000 pages in its index. Constantly this engine adds new pages to the index database - usually it takes around two days to list a new page after the Googlebot (Google's spider) has crawled it. Results on Google tend to shift on a weekly basis, probably because they are running mini updates. That may be one of the reasons of differences between the results when you're checking your ranking with the help of an automated tool and then look at the results in your browser.

Google has lots of the so-called "regional" branches, such as "Google Australia", "Google Canada" etc. These are modifications of their index database stored on servers located in the corresponding regions. They are meant to further adjust search results to searcher's needs: when you're searching, Google would detect your IP address (and thus approximate location) and feed the results from the most appropriate index database.

During the "Google Dances" the results on different local googles may strikingly differ.

Submission to the "Main Google" will list your site in all its regional branches - after Google indexes you, of course.

Now, Google has a number of crawlers to do the spidering. They all have the name "GoogleBot" but they come from a number of different IP addresses. You can see if Google has visited your site by looking through your server logs: just find the IP address matching 64.68.xx.xx (alternatively, a domain address crawl2.googlebot.com or crawl3.googlebot.com) and most probably you will see the user-agent defined as GoogleBot.

Google is by far the most important search engine. Apart from their own site receiving 350 million searches per day, they also provide the search results for AOL Search, ICQ Search, and Netscape Search (amongst others). For this reason, most optimizers first focus on Google. Generally, this makes sense.

How to optimize for Google - Google Add URL

Most important for Google are three factors: Page Rank, link anchor text and semantics.

Page Rank is an absolute value which is regularly calculated by Google for each page it has in its index. Later, we will give you a detailed description, now it's just important to know that the number of links you've got from other sites outside your domain matters greatly, as well as the link quality. The latter means that in order to give you some weight, the sites linking to yours must themselves have high Page Rank, be content-rich and regularly updated.

MiniRank / Local Rank is a modification of the Page Rank based on the link structure of your single site only. Since search engines rank pages, not sites, certain pages of your site will rank higher for the given keywords that the others. Besides, Local Rank has a significant influence on the general Page Rank.

Anchor text is the text of the links that point to your pages. For instance, if someone links to you with the words "see this great web site", this is kind of a useless link. However, let's say you sell car tires and the link from another site to yours goes like "car tires from leading brands", such link will boost your rank when someone searches car tires on Google.

Semantics is the new factor that appears to have made the biggest difference to the results. This term refers to the meaning of words and their relationships. Google bought a company called Applied Semantics back in 2003 and has been using the technology for their AdSense contextual advertising program. According to the principles of applied semantics, the crawler attempts to define which words mean the same thing and which ones are always used together.

For example, if there are a certain number of pages in Google's index saying that an executive desk is a piece of office furniture, Google associates the two phrases . After this, a page about executive desks can not mention "Office furniture" but still show up in a search for those keywords. On the other side, a page that mentions "executive desk" will rank better if it does mention "Office furniture".

Now, there are two other terms related to Google's way to rank pages: Hilltop and Sandbox.

Hilltop is an algorithm that was created in 1999. Basically, it looks at the relationship between the "Expert" and "Authority" pages. An "Expert" is a page that links to lots of other relevant documents. An "Authority" is a page that has links pointing to it from the "Expert" pages.

In theory, Google would find "Expert" pages and then the pages that they link to would rank well. Pages on sites like Yahoo, DMOZ, College sites and library sites can be considered experts.

Sandbox refers to an algorithm which detects how old your page is and how long ago it has been updated. Usually pages with stale content tend to gradually slip down the result list, while the new pages just crawled initially have higher positions than they would if based on Page Rank only. In other words, Google considers new pages have more relevant and up-to-date content and gives them a certain advantage over the stale pages. That is, constantly updating your pages can help keep them up the list.
