Needs help with search engines

P: n/a
1. what is robots.txt. I am looking at my log file and have been noticing
that this file is not found..who creates it or how does it get created?

2. How do I get my web site to be recognized by search engines? I have
submitted it to several engines but as of today none of them have it on
their searches..I has been over a month since I did the submit. Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Ken

You.
or how does it get created?
You type nothing in a text editor, save it as robots.txt,
and upload it to your server.
You only type things in it if there's anything you _don't_
want to be spidered c.q. indexed.

I think without a robots.txt the same thing happens as with
an empty one, though.

Just wait.
Posting a url here might already help ;-)

Depends on the search engine. With Google (which is probably the one
you're most concerned about), you need to have links to your
site from sites that are already in Google's index.

You may simply have to wait longer. Yahoo and MSN have not yet indexed
pages that I added to my site in January. Google picked them up within a
few days, but of course I had links to them from my other pages.

Ken,

If you are talking about www.suzukischoolofhouston.com, if fear you will
have a longer wait.

Most modern search engines act favourably towards well designed sites with
appropriate content. I think you can muster up plenty of appropriate
content, but it's the well designed site bit that you will struggle on. I'm
not meaning to be cruel, but your site could do with some work.

As a minumum, you need appropriate page titles, headings and sub headings,
with plenty of appropriate content including all your important keywords. In
addition, a lot a weight is given to the number of other sites that link
into your pages.

I've obviously barely scraped the surface here, but it's a start.
