Submit Express claims that it provides a link to the top 70 search engines of the world including Google. Submit Express uses a list of search engines to provide them with links.
You need to follow some rules to submit a link. You need to use the right keyword within the meta tag. To take care of this, Submit Express also provides a free Meta Tag Generator. However, you can submit your URL only once a month, and you can just send the first page of your website. The rest is crawled by the search engines directly.
In short, you need to submit the index or home URL of the website, and then Submit Express’s robots click on all the internal links, and fetch the required internal URLs, and then submit the same to the Search Engines for indexing.
Reddit works on the basis of links submission, and the primary focus is on the content. You can submit a link to the main page of the website as well as to the individual pages, products, images, etc.
Reddit helps in increasing the traffic to a website by providing the audience with the links. It also helps you to improve the SEO of a website by connecting the links to textual descriptive content.
All you need to do is submit a URL, provide the title, and choose a subreddit. You must carefully select a subreddit for the link because the selection of a random subreddit doesn’t help.
You need to search for the subreddit that has the maximum subscribers, and that the content too is in accordance with the description of the subreddit. You also need to comply with all the rules that are stated in the right-hand side of the platform, else the link is removed.
And, multiple removals result in the profile being categorized as a spammer.
P.S.: When you start out, you can post links of different websites (on appropriate Sub-Reddits) as this helps to increase the Reddit Karma, and once you have accumulated a significant number of Karma you can post for your website, and get amazing results.
