It goes without saying that there are many expensive methods for getting indexed in search engines fast. The fact of the matter is that there are many inexpensive and even free methods to get indexed in search engines almost immediately. This is great news for small businesses looking for affordable seo techniques. Today I am going to focus on the search engine MSN.
MSN has a significant enough piece of the whole search engine traffic pie to make it one of your priorities when optimizing your website pages. I will go into this in more detail at another time.
The best reasons why organic (free) search engine traffic should be your focus is the fact that you do not have to pay for any traffic (visitors) to your website; surfers are actually searching for precisely what you are offering at your website; and your website visitors are able to visit your website 24 hours a day 7 days a week regardless of what you are doing or whether you have pay per click campaigns underway or active.
A recent study has shown that people searching on search engines such as MSN, Yahoo directory and Google always look at the organic free search results first (on the top left hand part of the page) rather than any pay per click ads anywhere else on the page.
For this reason alone it is absolutely critical that you optimize your web pages to get targeted traffic from organic search results PLUS that you get indexed (listed) as quickly as possible in the search engines to take advantage of your targeted traffic. The more targeted traffic you get to your website the more sales that should result.
Now if you have just launched or are about to launch a new website you may be scratching your head wondering how you can get listed in the search engines for free. Of course there are timely delays on some search engines in getting listed and some directories and search engines you must pay to even get consideration for a listing, however, with the search engine MSN it is possible to get your brand new website listed in 24 hours without paying a cent.
In fact, you can achieve all this in only a few minutes of your time. Simply go to msn.com and type in your full url, that means with the http:// prefix and the full url after it. You will then be told that MSN could not find any results for your url. Do not despair because this is where it gets pretty exciting! Keep reading down the page on msn and you will find the following words: if you cannot find a page that you know exists send the address to us. All you have to do is click on the send the address to us link. All you need to do is type in the displayed characters and then your full domain url and click submit url. It is as easy as that. That is just one affordable seo technique for small businesses.
