AddWeb Website Promoter Version Professional Edition from Cyberspace Headquarters, LLC

By Howard Berenbon

Designing a Website and making work is just about half of what you need to do before you can make a profit on the Internet.  A big part of launching a successful Internet business is getting people to see your site when they search on your particular product or service.  This is difficult, and sometimes impossible, unless you have some good Internet tools to help get you noticed.  One such tool I’ve recommended and used over the years (since 1999) is AddWeb Website Promoter from Cyberspace Headquarters in West Hills, California.  I first reviewed AddWeb 3.0 in my November 1999 column, and AddWeb 7.0 in December 2004.  So, it’s about time for an update because AddWeb Version is out with added features and is better than ever.

Now, with AddWeb 8.0 you’ll find 19 tools (4 more than AddWeb 7.0) for Website optimization, maintenance, submission and page ranking promotion to help get your Website near the top of the search results, ahead of your competitors.  You can upgrade from an older version, or buy new.  Whatever you do, don't hesitate to get in on the latest version of AddWeb.  You can submit to thousands of search engines, directories and link sites in a matter of minutes, analyze your site for maximum search engine positioning, get live statistics on your Website traffic, build doorway pages for more exposure, track your page ranking in the major search engines, plus use the latest tool:  reverse-spider a search engine to find out what page elements will help your site, and what will hurt, so you can avoid them.

Before you submit, you will want to use AddWeb's PageAdviser to analyze your pages and check the content that can affect your Web site's position placement.  You don't want to submit your site and then get penalized by a search engine for content not accepted by that engine, or not get the ranking you need when people search for key words or phrases specific to your Website. 

After you've optimized your pages, it’s safe to submit.  Enter your site information, select the search engines, pick your categories, enter your keywords, enter your SMTP server and e-mail address, and you're ready to go.  If you have any questions, there are more than 40 articles, FAQs and several text and video tutorials to help you through.  When you’re ready, click “Promote” then click “Submission” under the promote menu.  Next, load your Website profile and then click “Start Submission” to begin the process.  On screen you’ll see the submission and the percentage finished.  When it reaches 100 percent, you’re done.  This will take about a minute.  That’s it.  You can view the submission report to see what engines and indexes accepted your site.  Now, it’s hurry up and wait, because it can take up to 3 months before your Website URL appears in the engines.

Here's what you get with AddWeb 8.0:

Exchange links with thousands of other webmasters with this utility.
