Major Search Engine Lists


Listing of 10 Top Search Engines
Web sites receives most of the traffic from major search engines. You should also target these search engines for your web site traffic. The Big search engines are Google, Yahoo and other popular engines. 

So you should manually submit your site to these major search engines. Manual submission is very important for proper indexing of the site, so always hand submit to the top 15 or so engines.

Major Search Engines:

  1. http://www.google.com
    Google is most popular search engine by far, a good ranking for two or three of your keywords here could result in a lot more monthly traffic for your site.
  2. http://www.yahoo.com
    Yahoo also a good search engine and it can drive a lot of traffic to your web site. 
  3. http://www.dmoz.org (ODP)
    Dmoz.org itself will not send you much traffic, I have ranked it the third most important search site anyhow as its true importance lies in the fact that lots of third party sites including Google use ODP data on their sites. What this means is that if your listed on dmoz.org you will soon notice your site is being found on sites such as the Google Directory, AOL search, Netscape Search and Lycos to name just a few. Open Directory Project guide is a very detailed guide written by me on getting into the ODP successfully.
  4. http://www.looksmart.com
    Just like dmoz.org's main attraction is that it supplies data to many third party sites so too is Looksmarts. Their networks claims to reach vast numbers of people. However your main advantage of listing with Looksmart stems from the fact that MSN use their data prominently within results for searches conducted on MSN.com, MSN.co.uk and other international MSN's. If you're a non commercial site you can get into looksmart via http://www.zeal.com
  5. http://www.alltheweb.com (Fast)
    Alltheweb.com is a very popular search engine which is currently seeing much growth. 
  6. http://www.msn.com
    Msn is also very good search engine and it can drive a lot of traffic to your web site.
  7. http://www.altavista.com
    Submission to AltaVista can drive a lot of traffic to your site.
  8. http://www.aolsearch.com
    The data is used by millions of AOL subscribers everyday, so its also very important search engine.
  9. http://www.lycos.com
    Lycos is also a very popular search engine.
  10. http://www.overture.com
    You will receive a lot of traffic once it is get listed in it.
  11. http://www.about.com
    Very popular site. 

  12. http://www.infotiger.com/
    Very popular Search engine.
