The paid inclusion will only do the index page as the service you paid for! If you want it to do the rest of your site going to their site and submitting your URL shall eventually call on the crawler to deep crawl your site.

Thank you Alternative Future!
I had submitted for the FREE thing the same time (b4 2 months from now). Let me do it again and keep the fingers crossed.

I have a web site that has been online since middle of 2001. When released I submitted to the major engines. Google and Alltheweb indexed the whole site quite fast.
Hotbot has indexed (2 years later!) some 50 % of the pages and Altavista only 20 %.
My question is: should I try to submit to Altavista again and if - should I submit the index page or maybe some page that has not been indexed?
P.S. Could Altavistas paid inclusion "hurt" the pages listed for free?

No, the paid inclusion does not hurt your free listings.
To my best understanding, paid inclusion is a way to get listed quickly. But, you may not be able to include all your pages using Paid Inclusion program (cost factors).
So, re-submission i think is your best bet. I submitted one of my sites 3 times and still waiting for it to be indexed. :(
Meanwhile, if you don't have any listings, pay for one-two pages if you want. I personally don't think Altavista makes that much of a difference. It hasn't, in my case.

I wouldn't spend a cent on AV paid inclusion, they simply don't deliver traffic whether you have pages in there or not.....for most keywords anyway.
can't think of an example of keywords that do deliver on AV
