Hey all.

I've been looking for some software or a website to do search engine submission. Free is obviously good, but I wouldn't be out if I did have to pay. Been messing with AddWeb, but I'm worried about using automatic software (purley because half the time this software is a ad-scheme in itself). If anyone knows of any good places, please tell!

I don't know if it is actually worth it but you can search on yahoo "Free Search Engine Submission" and you will get some sites that will allow you to do so. The best way is to get in google/yahoo but good luck.

Yeah, I found some places. I was more looking for places people had actually tried :-/

Thanks though.

I can't think of a reason to be submitted to 65,987 search engines, I would only be interested in the big ones. You can manually submit to google, yahoo, msn, altavista, and alltheweb. Don't forget to submit to DMOZ, thats an important one. Many other search engines (including google) feed results from it. If you want to improve your search ranks, look around for "Search Engine Optimization" tips. Just make sure you are using a reputable source, there are tons of SEO scammers out there.

I don't want to submit to 60,000 search engines, just the top ten or so. It's pointless otherwise.

The main reason is because I have several sites to submit, and I'd rather not do each one by hand...

Nobody submits to engines any more. What you need is a link to your site from an already indexed site. The spiders will find you eventually.

i used SUBMITNET's trial offer for 3 months,it was excellent.

i wanted my site to come up near the top of search engines
like Yahoo and Google, when internet surfers typed in one
particular word( a name of a place). During the time i used
Submitnet, my web site went from about the 75th hit to
the top ten,sometimes 2nd.

I could not afford using SUBMITNET, so i stopped using and
now,after 8 months,i am about 20th on a regular basis.

I exchanged emails with the company for support and that
was excellent too. I could feel the emailer from the company
was friendly and supportive.


POSTSCRIPT: i had to give my credit card number to have
on file but they did not put a hold on the amount of money
a subscription would cost like many internet companies will
do. ie when i did a trial offer with a online DVD renter,they
placed a HOLD on my credit card and when i did not follow
though with doing business, it took 2 months for the hold to
come off my credit card. HOLD might be the wrong word,i
think its called escrow.

if you are still looking i know that i saw some programs for free listing in the top searches @ www.betanews.com but i wasnt looking for that type of program so i dont know if any of them are any good, but if you try one with a good rating it might be, i can recomend the site though i have used it for several other programs

I'm basically doing everything manually now - I'm learning that submission programs can actually be worse, and many search engines dump submissions from them. Thanks for keeping the lookout though :)
