STEP 3 Track Your Listings

OK, you've been spidered! That means you're in, right?

Uhhhh... no. Not really. It just means that that engine knows about you.

Now you have to watch for when each engine lists each of your pages (that have been spidered). The pros call this "being indexed." They track each engine to see when their pages get indexed (i.e., the pages are officially in the database, but not yet ranked).

For example, at AltaVista, enter your URL (host:yourdomain.com) into the search box. It will show you every page from that domain that it has indexed. Yes, there is a way to check this at each engine. Unfortunately...

Every engine has a different protocol. For more info on how to track which pages have been indexed at each engine...
