Manual search engine submission refers to manually submitting a website to search engines so that the pages on this website can be indexed by search engines for visitors to be able to find this site. It is very important to submit any website to the main search engines and others not just to Google because Bing, Yahoo and MSN still get millions of visitors so do many more less famous search engines that are still used by certain visitors. The reason Manual search engine submission is so much more effective than using an automated software tool is that search engines recognize the submission practice and prefer the Manual submission to protect themselves against spam. It takes anywhere between one to four weeks for the submitted web pages to be indexed in search engines. That is more of a reason why Manual search engine submission actually saves time as it ensures that the pages do get indexed after this waiting period and don’t need to be resubmitted if the indexing fails through the automated software tool.
