Search engine submission refers to the process of submitting the URL or domain name of a site or page to a search engine for consideration. Search engine submissions are beneficial for website promotion. It is a type of online marketing that helps website developers increase the ranking of a site.

There are two main methods of search engine submission: submitting one page at a time through Webmaster tools or by generating a sitemap to submit all pages for consideration at once. Web developers can use search engine submissions to improve sites and outperform competitors, as well as to inform various search engine optimization strategies.

Back in the “old days”, paying people for “search engine submissions” was a common practice. Nowadays, this is not necessary. The bots have become quite good at crawling websites.
