Google, Yahoo and Microsoft Bing (formerly MSN Search and Live Search) — Channeling information throughout the globe are the three largest search portals, Google, Yahoo and Bing. They are fierce competitors, yet together these giants of the Internet form the hub of emerging search technologies. By no means are these three alone. There are literally hundreds more trying to capture a share of a rapidly growing market.

In the world of Search Engine Optimization (SEO), there is a popular belief that submitting to many search engines is a great way to generate traffic to your website or blog. In the opinion of this web author, most search engines will find your site before you find them. Submitting to numerous search engines is more likely to result in more SPAM to your email address than traffic to your website or blog.

A more effective, free, less time consuming and reliable approach would be to submit your site URL to Google, Yahoo and Bing. Let the search engines do the rest. To assist search engines, the robots.txt and sitemap files are important. Site validation and browser compatibility are other important factors leading to the success of websites, blogs and their owners.
