Big List of Blog Search Engines to improve the visibility of your blog on web


My new theory on blogging is that whenever I can’t find a particular piece of information on Google I should just create it myself. What’s the point of all this easy-to-use publishing technology if you don’t publish stuff, right?

Well, I recently created a new blog, itswadesh.wordpress.com and wanted to find a quick checklist of all the blog and rss search engines so I could submit the site and reap the tons of free traffic which would inevitably result. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a really comprehensive source. The best I found was this page which a) I found somewhat confusing; and b) did not address the ability to submit your blog to the engines. Update: It’s really not that confusing.

Thus, the Big List of Blog Search Engines.

Following are all the blog search engines, directories, and web-based RSS aggregators I could find, along with brief instructions on getting your site listed. I’m sure I missed something so use the ‘comments’ for any updates.
