Intentionally launching a Web site that can't be found by any of the major search engines could hardly be the goal of any Web site owner. That would be akin to opening a mail-order business and not sending out a catalog, or opening a store and not publishing your phone number or address. On the Internet, the major search engines are the equivalent of the Yellow Pages, and the listings on search engines are just as valuable for garnering new business. No matter how pretty and interactive your company's new Web site is, if it can't be found in one or more of the major search engines, then you might as well have put a billboard in the woods.
