   Submission of blog or website pages is very necessary to Search Engines like Google, Bing/Yahoo and Yandex etc. When you design a website with different pages or write a blog, the Search Engine doesn't know anything about your site or blog. You have to manually submit your Website or blogs to SE for indexing. When you submit your site to SE, they list and index your site for targetted traffic. This is completely free and the most effective way to get more traffic. You may get paid traffic from SE, but still organic traffic is valuable. Now its time to submit your site to Googl, Bing/Yahoo and Yandex.

In January 2015 Yandex Search generated 51.2% of all search traffic in Russia according to LiveInternet. Yandex Search also features “parallel” search that presents results from both main web index and specialized information resources, including news, shopping, blogs, images and videos on a single page.
