I always thought you had to pay to get into Ask.com and Teoma but awhile ago I started to get hits from there! And for the keywords "<snip>"(http://s.teoma.com/search?q=<snip>&qcat=1&qsrc=1) My site is on the first page 3 times(1st, 2nd, & 7th)! and for the keywords "<snip>" I am under the "Resources - Link Collections from experts and enthusiats"! I never paid to get in so how did this (wonderful thing)happen?
Teoma is a crawler and like other crawlers it will find you through incoming links. PFI gets you in quickly, but with enough good links Teoma will crawl your site without paying. It just takes a long time.
My name is Max Sokol. I live in Belarus which is situated in Eastern Europe. I have a desperate need. I created a web-site which supports my family financially (to buy food, clothes), it's not just an entertaiment for me, we are looking for things how to survive here. I ask you that because I need a traffic from AskJeeves.com search engine to widen my opportunity to get more financial support if possible. If I even want to pay AskJeeves.com to submit my link I won't do it because they do not use bank or credit cards in our country. I would be extremely grateful to you and God if you submit my link to AskJeeves.com (Teoma). Please, help my family to find more opportunities to survive!

Your profile tells that you are Russian. Don't tell me that there are no banks in Russia or Beralus. And don't make people think that we (people from Russia) are beggars. If you cannot make business with your site, find a job (for example, as a translator).
