The email is titled: “Domain Notice”
“Notice for Registering your Domain with All Major Search Engines”
It lists one of my Internet domain names and the date the domain name will expire (unless I renew the registration).
In reality, this is just a sales pitch for search engine optimisation dressed up to look like domain name renewal.
When you have a website, you will want the search engines (Google, Bing etc.) to know about it.
The basic ways that the search engines get to know of your website are
- The search engines come across links from sites they already know, to your site and then they search your site and add it to their lists.
- You submit the domain name to each search engine
- You use an online service to submit your website to hundreds of search engines – most of which almost no-one uses
The email continues:-
“Submitting your domain to search engines is essential in order to make it more visible on the web. Failing to register with search engines makes it difficult for visitors to search your business on the internet. That’s why we are sending this friendly reminder to submit your domain to all major search engines for better visibility”.
Generally, once your website is listed by Google and Bing there is little point in trying to register it with the small search engines unless there is a search engine specifically for the niche that your website occupies. E.g. if your website is about GIF animated images then you’ll want to register it on the GIPHY search engine which only searches GIF animated images .
