One of the goals when opening a new website is submitting it to the major search engines. Yahoo, Google and Bing have a simple form where you can submit your website for free. This adds the website to the search engine's index, so you can soon see it listed on search result pages. The amount of time it takes to index your site is dependent on several factors, and some search engines index it faster than others.
