In Promoting Your Blog with StumbleUpon we learned that blog promotion is an important factor to making money blogging. In order to generate revenue from our sites we need traffic and StumbleUpon is a great source. However, even before you start to network with sites like StumbleUpon, you'll need to submit your URL to Google and Yahoo search engines.
What's that? You don't have a blog yet? Sheesh… head over to Creating a Blog Site for FREE and come back when you're done!
Google URL Submission
Head over to Add your URL to Google and simply enter your URL, some comments about your site, and the letter verification.
When you're set, just press the Add URL button and Google will do the rest!
Yahoo URL Submission
Now that you have submitted your blog to Google, let's do the same with Yahoo. Go to Yahoo Site Explorer
Here you can submit both your sites URL and feed. When you have the information placed in one of the text boxes just submit and you're done!
Google and Yahoo claim their search bots may not crawl your content for months but from my experience it takes a matter of days. As long as you constantly crank out quality content you will be in business.
Pretty simple eh? In just a few minutes we easily submitted our blogs to the major search engines. This will go a long way in promoting and driving traffic to our blogs. Our money-making days are just around the corner now.
