You don't.

Seriously, you don't.

You create the content and code for your website, using words and phrases that your target market are likely to use when they search for whatever it is you offer.

Then you start marketing your site. See if you can get a business colleague or a friend who has a website to link to your site from one of their pages. It's helpful if they're in a related (but not competitive) business, but it's not necessary. Mention your pages on social media. Include the URL on your business stationery. Advertise (online, print and broadcast, depending on your budget). Do what it takes to make sure people know about your pages.

Validate your site with Google Search Console (formerly Webmaster Tools) and with the Bing's Webmaster Tools. If there are any other search engines that are important in your part of the world, find out if they have something similar.

The search engines will find your pages on their own. You do not have to submit to them. In fact, given the backlog of submissions they're dealing with, they'll likely find you on their own before they ever get around to your submission.

Bottom line: submitting your site to the search engines is a waste of time. Spend the time you would have devoted to submission to promoting your site through other, more useful channels.

Google and other popular search engines have spiders that traverse the internet to "index" sites, meaning they crawl from websites to websites and add their key contents into their database. So it is not necessary for you to submit keywords to search engines. Just plan your content carefully, having key words/phrases in titles/headings/prominent places, without making your site unreadable by human.

Some links from your friends to your website would be helpful too.

You need to analyze your website first and then the competition in the market so that you can implement the right strategy on how to target your audience effectively through interesting content.

The thread is not asking for this redundant definition.

It's better to have keyword in mind first to choose the proper domain name. But if you already have it you can optimize it by your index page title, contents, <H1>, and other tags. Then you have to get your site noticed by search engine one good way is find directory to submit your site to google 'website directory'.

You need content on your page. If you do use meta-tags then you need to make sure they really match your content - otherwise search engines might get the idea that you're trying to cheat. The best way to get people to link to your site is to provide useful content.

You need to check your website can be read properly by search engines. Things to watch out for include: Javascript, Images, Clean code, structured cod and Title.
