Promote Your Website Through Link Popularity
More and more search engines are using link-popularity as a ranking method (Google is the originator of this technique).

That means that a secondary benefit of getting a link on major indexes is that it can improve your ranking on some search engines.
Create Sitemap For Promoting Your Website
