Submit Your Site To Top Search Engines In The World

The first thing that a newbie blogger does is, submit their blog’s sitemap to Google webmaster tools. Well, that’s a good thing because 90% of the traffic we get on our blogs is from Google. I don’t want to downgrade other search engines but the thing is like that. But submitting to only one search engine is not a good idea.

As I said before, it is not good idea to put all your eggs in one bag, and it goes same for your blog also. You don’t want to rely only on Google search engine traffic, there are other search engines that drive good traffic for blogs and you want to make use these search engines traffic as well.

So we look into how to submit xml sitemaps to these top search engines that are available right now.
