directory submission
automatic / manual

I've been looking at a free submission site this morning where you submit to 28 engines one at a time so it's a sort of automatic / manual thing.

it's at [ineedhits.com...]

What are your opinions on this, and if it's a reasonable course of action to take does anyone know a similar thing that does this on a larger scale?

It's all down to time I suppose and any tool that saves it should be looked at

Billy, I have used this in the past.

I think that it should be okay as long as you go through it by hand and make sure that you submit to each only once.....and stay away from the millions of ads for submitting to thousands of search engines!

Anyone else have any experience with it?

There's a tool at [jimtools.com...] that submits to about 40 engines. I'm always a bit cautious with these. I worry that SEs might associate these submittals with spam, since no doubt they get a ton of submittals from these places. Just the usual paranoia...

Submissions to Yahoo, ODP and LookSmart need to be done individually, and with the most important search engines I prefer to hand submit. Of course with several, it's best to be found through links, which might not always be possible. But I've considered a service such as this for alternate submissions, which for time reasons would be impractical to do myself, by hand.

It's always advisable to set up an alternate email address, so that's good advice. I don't know about doing this on a larger scale. I suppose all traffic adds up, and we never can tell where the paying customer will come from.

That's my sentiments exactly, but it seems to a little different than the normal auto submit services that are available out there.

The submission criteria comes up with every separate submission and the downfall of auto submit is that it doesn't follow spacific instructions from individual directories.

On the face of it it seems to be a handy tool but i'd hate to make a serious blunder with clients sites for the sake of saving a couple of hours.
