Once you create a new website Google, Bing or any other search engines will start indexing your website over a period of time. It is always a good practice to manually submit your websites to the search engines. Submitting your websites manually to the search engines gives you more control over the crawling of these search engines.
This would also provide you with some important information that you would require to improve the SEO of your website. Below I have instructions on how to manually submit your website to search engines.
