Your First Submission Started
Now that you have
installed and registered TrafficSeeker, you're ready to start
promoting your website. We have made this task as easy as 1 - 2 - 3.
Simply fill in the information asked for in each Step and you will be
submitting your site in minutes.
1: Creating A Project
You can access this by either
hitting the New Project button from the Quick Start Menu, or once the program
is open, hit the Projects Icon ( in upper left hand corner). In this step you have 2
items to fill out to create a Project. A Project is described as the
information input for each website URL you wish to submit. The
Project will be saved so you can then return and re-submit the site at
any time in the future.
You will need to enter in your
website's information. You can do this by using the Extract Option, which will
go to your website and pull the meta tag information and automatically fill in the
boxes, or you can type in the information for each box. Do NOT forget to choose
a category to submit your site to.
When you hit the Choose Category button,
you will have 3 items to complete. The first is for General Engines like HotBot, Lycos and
Infoseek. You will then be asked to choose categories for Yahoo and Dmoz sites. Hit the
Yahoo Option, then double click on Yahoo to expand the category selection. You will
be forced to select a VERY SPECIFIC category. When you've found the category you'd like
to submit to, hit the Choose Category button in lower right corner. If the
category is acceptable you will move on to Dmoz. If not, you will be prompted to
select a further sub category for your domain. Follow the same process for Dmoz
For Pro and Platinum users, you can
now go to the Spider tab and add additional pages from your domain to submit
The Spider option gives you the
ability to add multiple pages from within your domain and submit them at the
same time. You can add them manually or follow the Spider Wizard (recommended)
2: Submit Your Site
There are many powerful features
you may wish to use before submitting your site, but they are not required. Once you
have created your Projects, hit the Submit Button and follow the Wizard. At the
end of the Submit Wizard you can choose to submit right now, or you can submit
at a later date. Platinum users can then go to the Scheduler and automate this
That is all there is to it! You are
ready to submit your website. We do highly recommend hitting the HELP BUTTON,
which is located on each and every screen. The Help Section is designed to walk you
through each and every function of the software.
Dmoz Sites: These are very specific
engines/directories that can bring tremendous amounts of traffic to your site. We
HIGHLY recommend submitting your sites to both Yahoo and Dmoz. (Something that
NO OTHER submission software can do!)

Submitting your website
is crucial to the success of your business. Here are a few brief
guidelines for submitting your site.
Submitting to the
Search Engines should be done no more than once per month, for each
URL you're submitting. The major search engines will index your site
somewhere between 3-8 weeks after you've submitted your site, and
then will keep your site indexed unless you request it to be removed.
You want to resubmit
your site monthly to alert the engines that you're adding new
content, your site is still active, and that you are trying to gain a
better position in their index. Positioning in the engines is
determined by the search engine's particular algorithms. The 2 main
ways to increase your site's chances of being indexed highly are:
1. Consistent submissions:
as previously stated, submitting your site once per month will alert
the engines that your site is active and is consistently adding new information
formatted meta tags are required to getting your site listed.
Meta Tags are a brief summation of your site, entered as tags in your
HTML code. If you're not familiar with meta tags, then we highly
encourage you to learn quickly! The TrafficSeeker Pro version comes
with a powerful meta tag creator that will insert these tags into
your HTML code instantly and easily.

Submitting to the
Classifieds and FFA's should be done at least once per week! Each one
of these sites uses 'revolving submissions', meaning that when a link
is added to their site, one is dropped from the site. For this
reason, submitting at least weekly will ensure that your site remains
in their listings. We HIGHLY recommend using a free email address
when submitting, because you will get 300-500 autoresponders from
Spamming: is defined as
submitting your website, the exact same URL, over and over and over.
If you submit http://www.yourdomain.com daily or weekly to the major
search engines, you will be deleted from their indexes. The same is
true for the Classifieds/FFA's. While you can submit to these sites
as often as 1 time per day, we highly suggest not submitting any more
than this. You can submit different URL's, we're referring to
submitting the exact same URL to the same submission site.
