Whats a good program to do the once-a-month submissions??

I know there there is whole bunch of them like submit wolf, etc. Which one of those programs is the best, or maybe I should ask: which one has the most updated and most sites to submit it to.

Right now Im paying for search engine blaster and I rather buy a program and not pay $40/month.

Thank

Mark

Dont waste your money on programs that "submit" your site to search engines.

NOTHING! This is completely a waste of time. Search engines don't find you from submissions, they find you from your links. Stop wasting your money and time.

As for monthly submissions to directories, this is a really good way to make sure that quality directories blacklist you, and lousy ones harvest your emails and sell it to spammers.

Choose good directories, and submit them by hand. Monthly submission software is a scam - it always has been.

Somehow it helped me I guess. With some keywords in Yahoo I rank very high. Recently I Sumited the site to Microsof bCentral. Now Im heading towards Yahoo directory listing and business.com. That should give me some good link building. Im doing adwords and Yahoo/overture. Just recently I noticed Im spending way too much money for it.

Now I either invest in a good SEM or try to do this on my own step by step. My PR I think when last time checked was about 4.

I need some good link building.


Thanx

The only "submission service" I know of that isn't a scam is the Submit-It one, and that's because it doesn't pretend to submit you to thousands of sites.

You might want to check out this area for effective link building: http://forums.searchenginewatch.com/...splay.php?f=44

In my opinion, for the most part this is true, after the site has initially been submitted. It is certainly a fact that you do not need to submit to Google, as long as you have a link to your site from any Google-indexed page, but other search engines warrant a submission. In the old days (2000 and before ), it was important to resubmit pages to the various search engines on a periodic basis. This is no longer the case with most major search engines, however, as they will come back and make sure you are "still around" and "still the same" once you have been indexed. Of course I am speaking at a very basic level here.

Remember that directories are different, however, and often require yearly resubmission.

On the topic of auto-submission - it's been reported here at SEW before that Google could be using its registrar status to auto-index new domains anyway.

They actually picked up new domains even before they were a registrar. Other search engines I'm pretty sure have done the same.

As Chris said, once you're listed, if you've got good linking, you should find they naturally pick up a fair to good number of your new pages. As for pages already listed, resubmitting really isn't doing much. If you in, and you stay live on the web, you stay in.

If you still feel you must submit, http://forums.searchenginewatch.com/...ead.php?t=6058 discusses the new Google program and ways to spider what you have and automatically ping them with updates.

Not only are the programs and online services garbage, they can actually hurt you. They say they submit to thousands of search engines. What they really should say is that they submit to thousands of FFA sites and SPAM DMOZ. Stay clear.
