The algorithm boils down to just a handful of variables; it is very likely that the PageRank algorithm itself has been tweaked since this paper was first published (see for instance

In order to submit your site to a search engine, you would typically access the search engine and look for a link on the bottom of their Web pages that says something like "Add URL" or "Submit a Site."

Additional Tips

  • After the initial registrations, regularly ensure that your Web site is still registered in the major search engines. Sometimes Web site listings disappear from search engines. One reason - search engines periodically send out a robot to verify that the links in their database are still active. If your Web site's Web server happened to be temporarily down when this occurred, the search engine might drop your listing from its database. Re-register your site, if necessary.
  • Don't worry too much about registering your Web site with the smaller search engines, because they don't generate much traffic.
