Getting us onto Search Engines... quickly I'm hoping!

I haven't been able to get Google, Yahoo, or Msn to recognize my sight. About the only thing which pops up when I type in something specific to my site is a posting I made in this community on Google and Msn. When I type in anything in this forum, it will be noticed by Google in a matter of minutes.. simply amazing!
It would be great if Yolasite had a forum for members to post their websites along with, say, a few keywords as a topic plus a link to their site, in order to get onto search engines quickly! Oh, I also placed an ad with a link on Kijiji, the link costs about $4.00, and it shows up immediately on Google as well.

From what I've seen, Google is definitely the fastest search engine in noticing our websites.

Hi Don,
Yes, posting relevant threads in forums related to your site's topic is a good thing to do as many forums, such as Yola's, have a high page rank in Google. That said, it is never a good idea to post spam in forums as this is not good etiquette and can actually get you banned from some forums. But commenting on threads with relevant comments/information on the topic at hand is a good SEO tactic. You might find some of the of the suggestions in this tutorial helpful as well: Promoting your site.

Hope this helps!

Kind Regards,

Just an update: Finally, after re-submitting my url to Yahoo a few times, my website shows up nicely on Yahoo. Also, it's on msn as well. This whole process seemed to take about 1.5-2 months. So anyone reading this, don't be discouraged... Google is fastest, but I see now the rest catch up also. I still think a kijiji add with a link is a cheap helper.
