Internet Listing is a free service you should not pay for!
Some companies offer annual website search engine listings: for an annual fee they submit your website to a certain amount (usually 25 or more) of important or established search engines.
In order to understand how much (or little) sense this offer makes, let’s have a look at the search engine market share.
According to internet research company Netmarketshare, the percentage is as follows:
Google – Global 82.80%
Yahoo – Global 6.42%
Baidu (China) 4.89%
Ask – Global 0.52%
AOL – Global 0.39%
Excite – Global 0.03%
Lycos – Global 0.01%
AltaVista – Global 0.01%
Since Google, Yahoo and Bing find your site after a few weeks without submission and keep you in their index, ask yourself:
Why would you pay annually for a submission to search engines?
