Hello,
I have created a small web site using iweb. When the subject is searched on google, I want my site to be listed, I was wondering how to do this and is it dependent on how the site is hosted, either mobile me or a separate host.

Thank you
David

Google listings take time

Basically you will have to be patient and wait for Google to come ecross you site and index it

A google ranking is based on its relevance to a search and how many other sites link to it

Don't expect quick results, it took at least 2 years for the site I did for the London VW club to appear at the top of a search for London VW Club

Thanks for the response,
So I take it, it doesn't matter where or who hosts the site. Does the site have to be registered with google or something?

Yes you can register it with Google

Submit Your Content

you might also consider yahoo and msn, also the open directory is a good idea

Submitting a Site to The Open Directory Project
