We highly recommend that you submit your website to the major search engines. Submitting your website URL to search engines can help improve search engine rankings, increase online visibility and drive traffic to your website. That said, the search engines give no guarantee of ranking your page just because you have submitted it or how long it might take. Submitting your site lets the search engines know that you have new information to share across the web.
Our new Search Engine Submission tool allows you to submit any SiteSwan website to the search engines with just one-click. This will eliminate the tedious and time-consuming process of manually setting up a search console for every website you create.
Please note: This is an optional paid service. While most sites are indexed in as little as 48 hours, we can’t make any predictions or guarantees when or if submitted URLs will appear in search results. Some sites may take longer than others and this is at the sole discretion of the search engines. You can check the status by searching for the website URL (companyname.com) in a search engine and seeing if the site comes up in search results.
Step 1 - From your Dashboard, hover over the Sites tab on the top of the screen and click "Search Engine Submission".
Step 2 - Choose the site you want to submit from the dropdown, select either the "One-Time Submission" or "Monthly Submission" option, and click "Buy Now". Your site will be submitted immediately after your payment is processed.
- One-Time Submission: Your site will be submitted to the search engines once.
- Monthly Submission: Your site will be submitted to the search engines. We will then resubmit your site every month to help search engines crawl your website for new content. This "set it and forget it" option will help by ensuring the major search engines are indexing the most recent content added to your site.
How long does it take to submit a site?
We will submit your site immediately when your payment is processed. While most sites are indexed in as little as 48 - 72 hours, we can't make any predictions or guarantees about when or if submitted URLs will appear in search results. Some sites may take longer than others and this is at the sole discretion of the search engines. You can check the status by searching for the website URL (companyname.com) in the search engines and seeing if the site comes up in search results.
What is the suggested retail price?
- We recommend charging your clients at least $25.00 for the one-time Search Engine Submission service, and $15-$20 per month for the monthly Search Engine Submission service. You may choose to either add this to your Setup fee, or charge separately for this service anytime after the site is launched.
