You might have seen many advertisements on the internet that asks money to submit your website to search engines and get your pages indexed in those search engines. Well it’s not that tough. You can also submit your website to top search engines. These search engines and web directories will require your URL. The URL (Universal Resource Locator) is your full website address (for example http://yourdomain.com or http://yourdomain.netfirms.com).

One of the best ways to start promoting your website is to submit it in major search engines. Here is the list of urls for submitting your website to different search engines.
