Publicity


Whether the visibility of a site on the WWW should be promoted or controlled depends, of course, on the nature of the site. To promote visibility among a general audience, information about the site can be submitted to the most popular directory services:

Yahoo!:

Homepage: http://www.yahoo.com/
Registration: http://add.yahoo.com/fast/add?+

Infoseek:

Homepage: http://guide.infoseek.com/
Registration: http://guide.infoseek.com/AddUrl?pg=DCaddurl.html&sv=IS&lk=noframes

Magellan:

Homepage: http://www.mckinley.com/
Registration: http://www.mckinley.com/magellan/Info/addsite.html

Lycos:

Homepage: http://www.lycos.com/
Registration: http://www.lycos.com/addasite.html

An alternative to registering with several general directory services to reach the general audience is to provide information to Submit-it, a submission service, who will, in turn, provide the information to several directory services. The information can be provided by accessing the site:

http://www.submit-it.com

The following sites post information about sites of particular interest to electrical engineers:

EE/CS Mother Site: http://www-ee.stanford.edu/soe/ieee/eesites.html

The World-Wide Web Virtual Library: Electrical Engineering: http://arioch.gsfc.nasa.gov/wwwvl/ee.html

Postings for technical areas other than electrical engineering can be found at:

The World-Wide Web Virtual Library: Subject Catalogue: http://www.w3.org/pub/DataSources/bySubject/Overview.html

Additional visibility for a site can be achieved by posting it to various news groups, such as alt.engineering.electrical and alt.engineering.mechanical. Other technical groups can be found as additional subcategories of alt.engineering, as well as the subcategories of alt.engr and sci.engr. These news groups, and over 30,000 others, can be accessed through your local news server.
