Should I resubmit URL if I have made keyword changes in the content?

    I have made some changes in some of my hubs and am wondering if I should resubmit these url's or if they will automatically be "crawled" and I do not need to resubmit.  Any help will be appreciated and I hope this isn't a really dumb question.

    It's not a really dumb question - there's a lot to get confused about when your new to something.

    Once you set the URL - when you first publish the hub - it cannot be changed.
    There is nothing for you to re-submit; they will get crawled automatically.

      thank you wyanjen - I was not really looking forward to resubmitting them.

        Where are you "resubmitting" them to anyway?  You don't have to submit anything to search engines, if that's what you're talking about. It's an outdated idea.

          Another important tidbit I have just learned - I submit them manually to Google, Yahoo, Bing and a couple of others - as well as redgage, xomba, gather and others.

          So, I have been wasting my time with the url search engine submission?

            I have found it useful to submit to Yahoo. That is the only one I worry about. But yahoo sends so little traffic its not very often I submit to it.

            Yahoo is easy to rank highly on for a new web page or hub so its good for an initial traffic rush until the hub looses the freshness factor bonus.

            I'll be interested to see what people like Sunforged has to say, but my understanding is that it's a waste of time and energy to submit to the search engines (Yahoo, Bingle, Google).  It doesn't get things indexed any faster.

              Hi Marisa. The only one I have seen a difference from is Bing. The hubs I have received hits from Bing came right after I did submit the url. Other than that I get nothing from Bing.

              Yahoo is slow to crawl sometimes it seems. Google is the fastest I have seen so far. Bing is the only one I have submitted to since it works there a bit. The others, it happens without me submitting.

              Yes Marisa submitting is pretty much a waste of time in my opinion too. With a few backlinks they will find you soon enough. I only submit to Yahoo to speed things up occasionally.

            Hi West40,

            I personally don't feel submitting to search engines is a waste of time.

            Search engines aren't aware of all sites.  Sometimes you have to let them know about a new URL.  It could take months before they find your URL especially if your not linked up with other websites, blogs or hubs. 

            I create free websites and link many of my hubs to them and visa-versa.  When I first started to create them I never thought of submitting my URL to them and I waited for weeks before I saw them indexed to the SE.  Then over time I realized when I create a new free website I should submit the URL to at least a handful of SE and the new free website was listed within a week.  I feel it does help.

    Huh, interesting. I never knew you could submit to the search engines.

      Google Submit URL
      Bing submit URL
      Service that submits to Yahoo among many others Expect a few emails for using this one.

      That last one is the only way I've found to submit to Yahoo. If Yahoo has a URL submit page I can't find it.

      Unless your topic is very time sensitive a few backlinks will get you indexed fast enough....

        That is interestng and thanks for the links. I have submitted 3 to bing as an experiment. I already get regular traffic from the others but very little from bing, so we'll see smile

    Thank you All for your advice - I have learned a lot about indexing and url submission.  The Yahoo submission site is:

    To be honest with Hubs being crawled by the search engines in a matter of hours, sometimes minutes, I see little benefit of adding Hubs to the search engines manually.

    If you have just created a new site of your own with 0 backlinks, then search engine submission can help, otherwise I simply would not bother.

    I do not submit anything to search engines myself. What I do to have my hubs crawled and listed quickly in search engines is to use rss.

    Here is my very simple method. Do this once, include your profile rss feed and forget it. Each time you write a new hub the rss feed will be updated via your profile rss.

    Take your existing hubpage url's and your hubpage profile rss. Go to and make one rss feed of all the urls. Submit this new rss feed url to a few rss aggregators, bookmark the rss feed to your Google reader and Yahoo reader.

    Search engine bots love and crawl rss sites by the seconds, not hours.

    Your hubs will be crawled and indexed quickly, and in a natural way. Not only that but the rss aggregator site provides a very powerful back link to each hub, including your profile page (hint,hint).

      Hi Terry,

      Thank you so much for the tip and advice and the direct link.  I never thought about using the RSS feeds.  I'm going to check it out right now.

        My pleasure, I have found good results with this method.

        I forgot to mention that you can, should, only submit upto 50 urls to make the one single rss feed.

          Hi TerryGI,

          I practiced today with the feedburners.  Adsense feed burner and the html2rss feed burner.   I already see positive results.

          Of course I need to practice and getting better at it but I did place the little feedburner icon on my websites and on old hubs which haven't received traffic in months.  It works.  Thanks so much.  Great suggestion.  Have a good weekend.

          1. TerryGl profile image58
            TerryGlposted 13 years agoin reply to this

            Yes, that is true.

            If you html 2 rss and submit that rss feed url to rss aggregators you have built a one way back link from the aggregator to your site.

            If you take that html2rss feed and place it in feed burner the link is you will now have a two way backlink.

            That means you have your html2rss feed working under that url and now when you burn that feed under feed burner you now have a two way back link strategy working for you.

            When you submit your feeburner url to the rss aggregators you now have a three way link working. That is two way link from feed burner and now three way link from the aggregator site you submitted to.

            It does work, I know it is clear as mud, but hey, it works wonders. You should do this with every site.

            If you find a site with your link, such as a blog who has reproduced your article, then burn an rss feed for it to build your link on that page. In time your anchor text link will age and get huge back link authority. Do this with your ezine articles and everything else you use to promote a page.

            This WILL make the difference from one or two cents a day to twenty to one hundred DOLLARS a day.

            This is exactly how I got my own representative adsense account.

              Hi TerryGI,

              Wow, you know your stuff.  It takes time to learn but so worth it in the end.

              I never truly understood the 3-way-link method to increase traffic but because of you I'm much closer to completely understanding how they can be of benefit.

              You know what, I'm going to practice using my own websites, blogs and hubs.  I can't wait to see the results.  Thanks again.

              I hope many hubbers pass by this Forum to learn how to increase their traffic.

              OK, speak with you soon.  Thank you again.
