submit to search engine

If your blog has not yet been indexed by the three major search engines (Google, Yahoo and Bing), then it’s time to stop waiting and be proactive -submit your blog to them!
Submission will increase your blog chances of being indexed the next time they crawl the web. Submission is free and is very easy to do.

Checking whether your blog is indexed

Before submitting your blog, you might want to do a “site search” to check its status (whether your blog is indeed has not been indexed yet). Enter this search query in the search box:
Replace domain with your domain name, for example for a blogspot blog entersite:yourblogname.blogspot.com.
If the search produces no results, then go ahead with the submission. (If your blog has already been indexed, this search will return a list of all your indexed blog pages).
Use the same query for all three search engines.
