Apart from Google, Yahoo and MSN live search, there are other search engines. These other search engines won’t drive a lot of traffic to your site, but it is still good if you submit your site to them. The other search engines are Cuil and Ask.
Submitting Your Blog to Cuil
Cuil is faily new search engine. It came out in August 2008. The owners plan is to out-rank Google as the top most search engine. Cuil boasts of more than 100 billion web pages it has indexed. I haven’t read about anyone saying she/she got traffic from Cuil to their blog.
To submit to Cuil, go to Submit Site. On the webpage, you have 2 textbox: Your Email and site URL box. In the Your Email box, entering your email is optional. In the Site URL, you will enter your site URL for submission. After submitting, you will see a message on a page saying “Your message has been sent. Thanks for writing us.”
Submitting Your Blog to Ask
SITEMAP: http://www.the URL of your sitemap here.xml
The sitemap location should be the full sitemap URL. Alternatively, you can also submit your sitemap through the ping URL:
http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http%3A//www.the URL of your sitemap here.xml
If done correctly, you would see this message
