So one way to get the spiders to pick it up is to publish its URL in a
newsgroup somewhere?

Actually it's somewhat of both. Search engines regularly spider, or
follow from link to link, pages to pick up content. They update their
databases with new content, new links, pages that are no longer there,
etc. Google also takes note of images and descriptions for it's image
search. But it only does this by using links from sites it has already
indexed. If nothing links to your site and you don't submit it, or
mention it in a newsgroup, then it's not going to find it.

Downing, David asked:

This leads me to ask related question, I read in an article in INTERCOM
awhile back, that if you don't submit your website to a search engine,
the "spider" programs out there will never pick it up unless another
website that is indexed contains a link to it. But I've also heard that
those spiders routinely crawl the web and pick up anything and
everything out there. Which is correct?
