    I have never posted a question to this forum - although I have answered a few - .

    Here goes: I have completed a site for a friend, and she wants me to submit it to search engines. Believe it or not, I have never done this before. All I usually do is make sure the content is good, and set up a Google Analytics account. The traffic starts slow and builds, based on just that.
    How do I go about submitting a site to search engines without accruing any potential penalties? I have heard that SE submission sites can be trouble - is there a procedure for submission to multiple Search Engines, or should I be submitting to each one individually?

    I know practically nothing about this... but here's what I do know....
    Google doesn't make it easy to find things. If I hadn't heard about google analytics I wouldn't have been able to find it. Got myself through a maze of links to get here > Submit your site to google > https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url

    Yes, I have already set up a Google Webmaster account for myself and an Analytics account for her, as well as a Bing account for her. Also she has made some Yellow Pages listings for her site.
    I was wondering about other search engines - ask.com, dogpile, webcrawler, etc.

    I have done that - and I've tried to explain that it will take time for the site to show up, but she wants to be on page one of Google "right now, after all, you told me you were incorporating SEO into the site" (direct quote from e-mail) .
    I have told her it would be a waste of money to hire an "SEO expert" and that if she does and they break the site I will have to charge an hourly rate to fix it.
    I've also found a couple of good articles about how search engines work and sent them to her - not much more I can do.
