    Are these strategies good for regular sites? What happens if you add a new article to the site but don’t submit to search engines? I thought spiders crawl themselves if the site is indexed.

    I use all the above methods – I go use ‘add Url’ but I’d question if that does any good – far better to get backlinks and submit sitemaps. As ever, good content is key.

    All the methods described above are definitely true up to great extent. But these are time consuming and require patience which most (not every) of the webmaster do not have. As a common saying “No pain, no gain” so I agree that these steps should be followed for building a successful website.
