I have a limited amount of knowledge on how search engines work and what they are looking for, and now have the demand to get back into this stuff, so I wanted to see if anyone had resources/articles and programs I can take a look at to get a better understanding of how I can improve sites for SEO.
I would like information about SEO in general, but I also have these questions:
1.) Is there somewhere I can obtain a list of popular search engines (to submit to)
2.) Is there a way to 'auto submit' sites to these search engines (by a script for example)
a.) Looking for a way with google currently, also looking for other search engines
3.) Also looking for information on what engines are looking for, what can change their behavior and how they behave in general
