I have created two sites and uploaded them to the net.  My question is how do I add these two URL'S so that search engines will pick up my sites for people to find?  Right now the only people that find them are those that uploaded to the same internet access provider.  Can you help?

All the services I have found charge money to do this.  I looked at the Excite search engine and the lowest price was 45.00.  Aren't there ways to get my sites added that don't cost any money?

bfine...

The cheapest way is to go to each search engine you want to be listed under, then select add URL, then proceed with the filling the form.

That's it..  The spider will check your URL and it will be up between 2 days to maybe 1 or 2 weeks depending on how big is the backlog spider has to do.

Hope this has helped.
