There is a big SEO company here in sweden that i suspect that they use some kind of software to register clients websites too search engines....

They claim that they submit to 340k different search engines!
ohh, that includes linkwebsites.

Anyway, on there FAQ they say that you should use multiply domains if you have different language.

For example, if have a company for selling phones...
and i have phone.com i should have that in english and the swedish version would be phone.se, i mean,
that for sure aint good?

isnt it better to keep it all on phone.com and have different flags for each language and link phone.se to phone.comīs swedish section.

Also they claim this;
some search engine just index your startpage, they dont index yourdomain.com/contact_us.php

is that also true? does this apply to yahoo, lycos, altavista or any other big search engine?

There aren't 340k search engines. There are 4 or 5, and they're owned by 3 companies.

(all owned by Yahoo)

(owned by Ask.com


Thats it for major search engines -- the rest just use the others.

Once you get to the next tier, minor search engines, there are maybe 10, but if you get in the major ones the minor ones will pick you up.

Multiple domains doesn't hurt -- plenty of big sites do it, Amazon.com for instance. Of course the method you describe works too.

By definition a search engine indexes more than your homepage -- directories on the other hand will only list what you submit.

Where does MSN fall in that list, Chris?

MSN is powered by LookSmart (a directory) and Inktomi.

If Looksmart indexes your site, will it appear on MSN?
Is quite difficult to get listed on MSN.

Looksmart doesn't index. They are a directory and accept submissions. You can submit through Looksmart.com (and pay) or if your site is non-commercial (ad supported) you can submit through Zeal.com for free.
