Submission is the process of submitting a URL over to a search engine with an adjoined request of including it in the search engine’s index. While a popular way of doing this is through the paid inclusion program, submission does not always necessarily mean a listing of the URL. Also, simply submitting a URL will have no effect on the ranking of the page as that can be influenced only through Search Engine Optimization. There are two ways to carry out submissions, which are either automatically or manually by filling a form.
