In the past I have looked at, tested and reviewed different types of programs that submit sites to Search Engines. Some of those programs simply submitted your site while others did a few things more like give you information about the engines and tried to help you with ideas on how to rank your site higher in the engines.

AddWeb 4 goes beyond all other submission programs and is a hit! AddWeb 4 becomes your personal robot and takes the information you tell it about your web site and then goes to the hundreds of thousands of resources that accept web site submissions and gives them the information they request about your web site.

Now, getting listed on any of the major Search Engines can be like finding a needle in the haystack. But using AddWeb 4 along with its guidelines really does give you a much better chance. What I really admire about the AddWeb 4 (CyberSpace HQ) is that they state right in their Help files the following; "AddWeb 4 cannot promise to get you listed on thousands of sites. No software or service can do that. Only the search engines and link directories can list you. Nor can AddWeb 4 make you number one. Again, that is up to the content of your site and the search engine's criteria for indexing." Pretty straightforward, huh?

AddWeb 4 is there for you every step of the way. From helping you not to spam Search Engines, to ranking your site and giving you much needed advice. CyberSpaceHQ continually keeps an updated database and works 'with' the engines and you. One of the many great features I liked is the Page Advisor. With it you can have AddWeb 4 look over your page(s) and it will give you the best advice on how and what you need to do in order to increase your chances of ranking higher.

Here are some of the features in this version that was tested: FrontPage Support - If you create with FrontPage, you'll love what it adds to that application.

Profiles - Set it up once and its ready whenever. A complete profile of your pages and site. Page Advisor - Give you some good advice about your keywords and overall site. Page Builder Plus - Generate some Web pages and then submit them. Submission - Submit to 500,000 engines (updated regularly) Rank Check - See just how well your site is really ranking on the engines. Internet Search - Verify if your site is listed using keywords. Scheduling - Schedule your site on a regular basis. And more...

While programs of this type greatly increase your time spent when submitting to the many thousand engines, AddWeb 4 has so many rich features you'll find more than enough options at your command to make your life easier and at the same time benefit your site on the engines. AddWeb 4 should rank high on your list of submission software! The program has many versions sure to please any Webmaster and CyberSpaceHQ has not only been around for a long time, but the tech support is great as well!
