Why is my website not appearing in search engines?

For your site to appear on search engines, you need to submit it to them. If you wish to submit your site to search engines there are many free services available to do so, and the best way to make sure you get added to the search engines you want is to do it directly with the search engine them selves.

Below are a series of links** which will show you how to submit with certain search engines:

Yahoo! UK - Suggest a Site - The Yahoo suggest a site function is now powered by Bing:

https://ssl.bing.com/webmaster/legacy/submitsitepage.aspx

Google UK - Submit URL:
http://www.google.com/addurl/?continue=/addurl

whatUseek - Submit a Site:
http://www.whatuseek.com/addurl.shtml

Scurb The Web - Add URL:
http://www.scrubtheweb.com/addurl.html

You will find that a lot of other search engines use Google (such as AOL) or Yahoo (such as altavista), so if you submit to Google and Yahoo you will cover a large number of search engines.
