Hello,

I am relatively new to Paid Inclusion Search Engines.
I would like to know which search engines I should submit to and which company I should use to do that (example positiontech)
For $103 I could get listed in:
Inktomi: MSN, Hotbot, Overture, Looksmart
Fast: Lycos, Hotbot, AlltheWeb, Excite
Ask Jeeves: Ask.com, Teoma.com Metacrawler, Excite
What other networks are out there?
Also is paid inclusion worth it?
Do the guarantee that I will be listed? Or will I get a refund if they don't list my site?
If I submit to fast and ask jeeves, does that mean I will get listed twice in excite?

I can recommend Ah-ha/Dogpile.

For a large site their PFI can bring you much more traffic than you might expect, and they are much, much cheaper than the other services. I'm surprised they don't get mentioned on this board more often,

I can't recommend PT/Inktomi. If you suffer am editorial penalty and are demoted PT can't help you and Ink never replies to queries.

Callanish,

Interesting... I never thought that DogPile would generate lots of traffic.

Anyone else experienced good traffic from DogPile?

Cheers,
epsrx

Quite frankly, a page listed in Google could bring you several times more traffic than all the others put together.

Your money is better spend on PPC such as Google Adwords and Overture.

I would make that you pages are optimized for Google.

I also get some traffic from Dogpile/Ah-Ha nothing worth jumping about just yet! Am waiting on them improving their coverage to get the results I would like to see...
