Google has tools such as site submission and webmaster tools among others to help get better indexed in the search engines..Free;)
Here is a list of all Google Products and services to help.

One sirefire way for free is leave a comment on a education blog or PR8 blog.
The urls are there but this is not the place for me to leave them for fear of spam of the particular sites.
Suffice to say, if you have an rss feed then submit it to bloglines and hold on as G will be there within minutes. Generally the site will be indexed but held out of the main index page and over time each individual page will enter the main index.
Maybe this url will help you and others. http://www.stumblexchange.com/
No comments required that your account will be banned etc as SU allows the site to operate.
Write quality content. Make good and appropriate use of your tags. Write a stellar summary instead of letting the hub editor autocalculate.
A part of being successful online is doing your research. So, my suggestion on that would be to go out and do research on keywords, how to market yourself, how to write in a way that appeals to search engine traffic.
Write a Hub.
Hubs generally get indexed pretty darn quick.
At the risk of sounding self-promotional, I wrote my last Hub three days ago, and it is already number 1 on the first page of Google results for "High Mileage Auto Refinancing".
I realise that Mr Knowles will probably point out that he dominates "Frongelous Facial Growth" in the same way. I don't mean to promote myself as an SEO guru.
But just to support what has been said in other threads about promoting your Hubs, if you look at #2 to #5, you will see that they are blog posts in various places, all of which link back to my Hub from the keywords "high mileage auto refinancing".
Thanks to all the wise ones - I have been listening!
Backlinks. Very important.
(Hmmm, now that I have rewritten the first page of Google results, maybe I should go back and edit the Hub, since it currently says the first page of Google results are all rubbish!)
I just looked again, and blog posts about my Hub are at positions 2,3,4,6,8 and 10. The Hub is still number one.
Definitely rewriting the Hub now!!!!
I used to actively used Onlywire, but it seems to stop working.
Misha Onlywire can be a bit buggy at times. I've used SocialMarker as an alternative - it works well, but can be time consuming if you want to post your link to a number of bookmarking sites. Another free social bookmarking site is SocialMarking 2.0 (note: the site offers also offers a paid submission service). I haven't used Social Marking 2.0 yet, but it looks pretty easy to use.
What is your definition of seem to stop working here? Is it because other sites banned onlywire?
what on earth does "ping the url at pingoat" mean? does anyone have an english translation of this?
Oh, that's easy: You go to the site, paste your url into a corresponding field and press the button
Search engines of all flavors have little bots running around. Some land on a new page and send it to their other friend bot who then indexes the pages. Other bots hang out out PR^ plus sites, forums, major blogs and rss feed sites all trying to beat each other to the latest content.
To ping means you submit your url to the rss feed where these hungry bots are waiting.
To rss you need a blog where the feed is defined. If your a static site, html etc, then you need to set up a rss feed xml file. Very easy to do. When you have your rss feed that basically lists your pages, posts etc it is listed on a rss feed. Pinging means very similar to submitting your site to a directory. You let them know your there, and when rss feeds are new or updated that little bot will come and chew it up pushing it out to all of its friends to be indexed etc.
Now personally I do love those little bots for their efforts. RSS = post and ping = links = traffic = $$.
Very informative I have a doubt - Some sites say they can submit(ping) the blog/rss to multiple search engines in single step. http://pingtheweb.com is such a site.
What is the actual process? Is it really possible for multiple pings at once? (sometimes they show ping error)
Even I will admit that "high mileage auto refinancing" is probably a more searched for term than "frongelous facial growth."
I have one Squidoo lens on refinancing generally, but it isn't optimised for "high mileage auto refinancing".
And I only have the one Blogger blog, which has articles about all different money topics - I did post an article there, but I guess it didn't make the front page.
Haven't done a ezinearticles article on this topic yet ... more things for the "to do" list!
I shall not rest until I DOMINATE ... evil laugh ...
I find if you name the lens, blog and article that single long tail keyword and use it at the start middle and end of your post or article, you will dominate Page 1. Social bookmark the lens, blogger blog and article. Even submit the rss feeds of each for some extra punch.
Here's a breakdown of the cpc for the keyword your targeting so it seems quite worth it.
Cost/Click: $1.06 - $10.32 thats for auto-refinancing
Wait there's more, this is for refinancing -
Cost/Click: $2.23 - $37.11
Clicks/Day: 7.38k - 9.34k
WOOOOOWWWW There is nothing more satisfying then getting your cheque by courier.
Excellent point Terry! That's how you "dominate the conversation" (borrowed from Howie Schwartz ) in the search engines. Not only name your Hub or lens with that keyword phrase but make sure it's also the URL. You can get extra love by targeting some additional keyword phrases on these pages. But the power move is to interlink all of these pages to create your own mini-network on these authority sites.
Yes it's really cool getting checks from companies you're an affiliate for. Even my kids think it's cool that their Daddy get's money from the internet
Lots of good tips in this thread. Thanks to everyone for sharing.
Make good content and get backlinks from relevant site. Not much more you can do. Don't panic Google will find you pretty quickly.
Thanks IMHustle, I looked at those alternatives and finally settled on a paid soft called BookmarkingDemon. It does what I need.
I don't remember exact figures, but after some time I checked actual accounts and it appeared that instead of posting to more than a dozen sites as advertised, it was posting to only three sites, and several my accounts have been banned...
