If you have a new website you might be asking yourself, should I submit my website url to Google?
The answer is quite straightforward, NO the search engine submission is not necessary per se. Today the search engines like Google, Bing, and others will crawl the pages and index them using the following links. In simple words, an inbound link that comes from the indexed page will detect your page and in case that page is linked to other pages on your website those pages will be detected and indexed too. This process will go on and on as long you have pages that are not indexed.
Therefore, using Google Webmaster Tools to submit your URL to Google is not really necessary.
But it does actually uncover the importance of inbound linking and its impact on Search Engine Optimisation.
Having said that using Google Webmaster tools or Bing to submit your URL will not hurt your website indexing and it is free. It actually might only speed up the process. In case you are worried how long it will take, you can only submit the main pages while making sure they are properly linked.
As I mentioned the search engines such as Google, Bing and others will not charge you for submission and if anyone is asking you to pay for that service should be ashamed of themselves.You can actually check which pages on your site are indexed without registering to webmaster tools.
The process is quite simple.
Just type in the following and you will be able to see all of the pages indexed.
So now we know that there is no need to submit your URL (site) to Google lets talk about the things you should do.
