Where should you submit your Blog?
Webmaster tool is the best and the safest tool to start indexing your site in the google search engine. Submitting your blog to other sites will help in better indexing and crawling of your blog. As we create a new blog it usually takes time to get indexed into any of the search engines across the web including Google search engine because the crawlers or you may say the google bots takes some time to find your blog. By submitting your site to these Websites which is listed below, it will help in faster indexing.
I’m not adding those directories or sites, which asks you to place a link back to verify the site ownership, as it will be considered as two-way link exchange. Though there are few directories which are quite useful and you may consider adding the link for a day or two just for the verification.
