How to Submit Your Site to Search Engines

The days of submitting directly to search engines are pretty much dead.

The best way to get your site listed on the search engines is to exchange links with other similar websites.

The more links you get, the more "popular" you become in the 'eyes' of the search engine.

It can take up to 3-6 months or even a year to get listed on Google if your site is new.

Here are some recommended sites:

Backup your website!

One of the most important things that you should do with your web hosting account is doing regular backups. Cpanel allows you to backup your data easily. Aside from your websites content, it will even backup your email boxes, databases, webstats... everything that is in your Cpanel account.
Once you have logged in, look for the icon “Backups”.  You will be presented a menu that will allow you to backup part of your website or the entire account.  The process is straightforward and we even provide a movie tutorial to help you.

Making Money With Your Website

So you have setup a website and ready to make your first million dollars... but where do you start?  Well for one thing, very few people make that much money on the web, if any at all.

First you will need visitors to your site. Blogging is probably the most popular format to generate traffic to your site.  There isn’t anything technical in setting up a blog. Most hosting companies include script installers that will install the software for you. Checkout the Fantastico scripts pack that is offered on our Value and Pro plans.  I recommend WordPress which is what this blog uses.

Once your blog is setup, it’s time to find something to write about. It can be anything but preferably one that you know what you are talking about... review of products, your favourite celeb., politics, anything.

How do I get people to come to my site?

voice mail system and it's all tied with via web based administration.
