Most Traffic is from Google. Should we manually Submit to others?

    I get Tonnes of Traffic from Google but just a few from Bing, yahoo. I am beginning to wonder if I should manually submit my Profile link (url)....to other Search Engines, but what if it has a negative effect? (some say don't submit to many Search Engines)

    This question has been raised in Q & A Section, but no one has been able to answer it.

    I hope my Hubbing Guru's can advice.
    Cheers. smile

    I don't believe it can have a negative effect. If it did, one could harm a competitor by repeatedly submitting their information to all search engines.

      Thanks for the response. Over a year ago, I submitted my business website to a search engine. I remember reading something about not submitting websites to too many engines.

    I generally don't bother.  Most of the traffic will come form Google regardless of what you do, and all the search engines will find the page within a few days to months.

      Good to know. So it seems maybe most people in HP have this issue. (most traffic coming from Google.)
      Thanks for your response.

    Of course it's really not what I would consider an issue, as someone has to be the search leader, whether Google or someone else.

    I think what you and many others are concerned about is being so heavily reliant on Google, who with one decision can knock you for a look.

    What is even better than search results, if you can get it, is to attract repeat traffic.

    That was an interesting aside to the megaupload debacle. So many people liked and used the site, that only 2 percent of its billions of visitors came from search sources.

    I never submit to search engines, but I have found that Yahoo and Bing pick my hubs up very quickly, sometimes within a few minutes of publication, and that they get a 'boost' for the first day or two, much like Google used to do, when they used to notice I existed.

    Since most people use Google, most of your visitors would come from Google.

    Since most people don't use the other search engines, most of your visitors won't come from the other search engines.

    If you're already indexed, submitting your hub won't increase your visitors. Only good keywords, content and backlinks will.

      Thanks for this advice. I better submit more backlinks via Redgage. I used to do it several times a week, now its just a few times in the month.
