     General Suggestions:

  • IMPORTANT:Infoseek/Go Network now allows submission of your root URL only. For example, submission of will get truncated to after being submitted. Therefore, you MUST create a hallway page linked to from your home page so that Infoseek/Go Network can locate all your important doorway pages!

  • It's believed that InfoSeek/Go Network may prefer larger sites with lots of pages. The thinking is that a site with more content will most likely be of greater value to their visitors. Therefore, make sure your site has plenty of content with links to that content from your home page. This content should reside on your web site, though, and not on other sites.

  • Your ranking and the ranking of other sites may be influenced by the link "popularity" of the site. This is determined by how many OTHER Web sites link to your own. The more sites that you can get to link to you, the better!

  • Obtaining a domain name with your Keyword in it may significantly affect your score. Including the Keyword in a sub-directory name or page name can also help, although not as much.
