Darna wanted to know “How do you get a brand new website noticed by the search engines. Are those paid “we submit your site to all the search engines” submissions worth it?”
Submit to search engines? NEVER! Even though estimates range around only 50% of new sites get indexed(another way of saying found) It is not that difficult to get indexed.
There are lots of different ways. Forum posting, article submissions, blog commenting, etc. However, this is the best and easiest way.
Just go to Google Webmaster Tools, sign in and have G re-crawl your site. Don’t have a webmasters account?
Another way: Have someone, anyone G+ your site on their Google+ page
Another way: Put your URL in the Google Mobile Friendly Tool and click Analyze
Another way: Embed a YouTube video on your site, the bots will come ‘knockin’
Anyways, NEVER pay to have your site put in the search engines ‘cuz it is a scam
