Hello,
It's really not possible to do standard type advertising for free on the search engines. You could offer to do link exchanges or banner exchanges with other sites.

To start getting traffic to your site, there are numerous directories on the Internet that accept paid and un-paid submissions. You’ll generally be able to give your listing a title, short description and link to your website. Don’t ever pay someone to “submit your website to 200 directories,” this is not looked highly upon by search engines; best to do it yourself. BestCatalog.net has developed a great list to get you started.

You could also submit articles to article directories which gives your website exposure and also gains a link back to your site; a few include ezinearticles.com, articlealley.com and ideamarketers.com.

Create an account, and submit your articles. You are able to place something called an Author Bio at the end of each of you articles. Within your Author Bio you can give a brief description about you, or your website, and place html links, usually two, back to your website. If an article directory doesn’t allow you to place links back to your website with the Bio, move on to the next one.

This is advertising your business in a more non traditional manner than placing banner ads or text ads on the search engines, but it is free and will be very helpful to not only your traffic but your search engine optimization as well.

You can summit your site threw these links. Sometimes they show up in a day or 2 and other seems like it take for ever.

For Yahoo http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/...

For MSN http://search.msn.com/docs/submit.asp...

For googles http://www.google.com/addurl/?continu...

http://www.webceo.com/pricing/index.htm
The above link is for a program that I use. Its has a free section and a pay section. The free one is good by itself, and shows how to list on about 350 search engines,(some search engines free some pay some both) how to improve ranking, keywords, and much more that search engines use in finding your site. Read info before installing and see if it may work for you. They even have a section there that they will monitor your site and inform you if site goes down. Again free and pay to use sections.

Has far as getting top ranking on search engine it's all how you play it. And I don't really know how just summit your site threw the above search engines does wonders. Just to show how funny search engines are check out these sites that I have, just type them into the search bar for googles, yahoo or msn.

Happy time shopper Listed 1st and 2nd place on googles, yahoo *8th place, msn couldn't find.

Shoppealot google 1st and 2nd, msn 1st, yahoo 1st with reference from 2nd,3rd,4th place listings.

Shoppealots Yahoo 1st with reference in all of next two pages, google 4th and 5th and reference before and after, msn 1 st place.

They may look good but if people don't know you why would they type your name in?
The use of good keywords and descriptions this will help you also. Place description and keywords on every page. Also don't beat a keywords phrase to death. Example,14k gold 8 carrot diamond ring with sterling silver in lay, gold 8 carrot diamond ring with sterling silver, gold diamond ring with sterling silver,14 k gold diamond ring with silver, gold diamond ring with silver. Some search engine will penalize you for this. They do have a limit on how much space you have to use then the rest of your keywords are thrown out. Use as many different phrases and words as you can. Using goods keyword and descriptions does help and I fail to do this enough. You can even try advertising your self from one page of your site to another page. On homepage adversity something on page four, page three on page two. etc. If you have more than one site advertise your self on both sites.

If you are selling products you can list them on googles and msn for nothing. If selling research what you're selling. Remember mid-November to mothers day is you best selling season after that take a vacation when it slow down. There are other sites out there that you can adversities for free also. Blujay and squidoos are site that you can self-promote yourself. If selling research what you're selling. Do not make a form statement and cut and pasted it to each site. Change it around. You are your best advertiser. Don't sit back and wait for the search engines to come to you , take it to the engines. They'll come back them self's.

Exchange links with others put there link up on your site 1st then contact them and ask for a link exchange on their site. If they don't reply or you don't see it on their site after a few days take their link down. If some one say yes check back to their web site from time to time to see if it's still there. If yours has been removed just remove theirs. Don't let it be a one way street.

No matter which approach you use it will take time. Don't pay someone to do it for you. Anything they can do you can do for yourself for free with a little effort. When I started doing for myself I seen results. Keep changing your site from time to time. Do not put it up and wait for good things to happen. Change is good.

Good luck
