    How long before my web site is listed on the search engines, directories, and indexes?

    Some search engines, including Yahoo, can take up to 4-8 weeks to review and include your site.

    How do I indicate what description I want to show up in the search engines?

    No! Some sites extract the description from your site. Most look for META tags in your pages to control what is displayed by the search engines. For example:

    <TITLE>Vipassana Information and Links to Vipassana Sites</TITLE>
    <meta name="keywords"
    content="Vipassana meditation,enlightenment,peace,calmness,serenity,meditation,awareness,buddhism">
    CONTENT="Lots of links and information about Vipassana meditation, one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation.">

    What guarantee do I have that my site will be entered into the search engines?

    None. Sometimes you have to submit your site several times before it gets listed. Avoid submitting more than once per week or your site may be classified as spamming a search engine.

    Hosting Masters, of course! Huge set of features, space and traffic for a low price.
