Submission to Google can be done
- manually through the google site,
- by using our submission service (see bottom of the page),
- directly by filling in this form:
Add your URL to Google.
We (Google) add and update new sites to our index each time
we crawl the web, and we invite you to Submit your website here. We do not
add all submitted URLs to our index, and we cannot make any predictions
or guarantees about when or if they will appear.
Please enter your full URL, including the
prefix. For example:
You may also add comments or keywords that describe
the content of your page. These are used only for our information and
do not affect how your page is indexed or used by Google.
Please note: Only the top-level page from a
host is necessary; you do not need to submit each individual page. Our
crawler, Googlebot, will be able to find the rest. Google updates its
index on a regular basis, so updated or outdated link submissions are
not necessary. Dead links will 'fade out' of our index on our next crawl
when we update our entire index.
Keep in mind when submitting to Google:
Like most search engines, Google ignores capitalization.
Any page larger than 101k will be listed as 101k
(Google only indexes the first 100k of any page).
Google indexes Acrobat (pdf), Microsoft Word (doc), Rich Text (rtf),
Text (txt), Excel (xls), Postscript (ps) and PowerPoint (ppt) files.
Google does not index Flash content.

What does Google PR mean? What is pagerank?
PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link
structure as an indicator of an individual page's value. In essence, Google interprets
a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at
more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the
page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves "important" weigh
more heavily and help to make other pages "important."
Important, high-quality sites receive a higher PageRank, which Google remembers
each time it conducts a search. Of course, important pages mean nothing to you
if they don't match your query. So, Google combines PageRank with sophisticated
text-matching techniques to find pages that are both important and relevant to your
search. Google goes far beyond the number of times a term appears on a page and
examines all aspects of the page's content (and the content of the pages linking
to it) to determine if it's a good match for your query.
How to check your Google PageRank
There are two easy ways to check your PR. (and a few more technical ones which we don't describe here)
- Install the google toolbar and you will see your (and others) PageRank in the bar.
- Fill in this form, and you will be taken to the great tool from http://www.top25web.com
The Google PageRank Value Report will return the Google PageRank values for the list of urls you enter into the form below. Put one url per line, and include the 'www.' in the domain for best results.
Very useful if you're using any browser other than Internet Explorer
More ways to submit to Google
A listing in the 'directory mozilla', or
http://www.dmoz.org, will be picked up by
the Google directory.
Note that getting listed by dmoz is free but not easy, and once listed,
it will take months before Google updates the new dmoz directory results.
