In this Chapter
• When to submit your site to search engines
• Search engines for weblogs: blog indices
• How to request inbound links
• Creating your own mini-stores
All of the website design and promotional techniques discussed to this point have been fairly insular, focused on how to tune your site for best results. The Zen of Growing Your Business, if you will.
It's time to expand our horizons and look outward, to learn how to find topical search engines that are worth requesting inclusion, how to identify which sites should be pointing to your business site, and why it's valuable to have a presence on eBay, Froogle, Yahoo! Shops, and similar sites.
