My website it well listed in google (it could always be better though) I have only every submitted my site once (ages ago). However I had a phone call from a company selling SE Optimistation and they were telling me that you should regularly resubmit your site, to get to the top of the stats. Is this correct?

Be worry if the only thing that SEO company is offering you is to resubmit a "well listed in google" site again and again. You donīt need to. Googlebot* do the job for you free of charge :-)

I have heard of this before, (SEO? companies phoning webmasters to tell them this)im just amazed that any webmaster in their right mind would pay them to do this.

Just in case you are in any doubt - Tell them to go forth and multiply.

You do not need to submit your site again to Google. In fact you dont need to submit to Google at all. If you have links to your site from other websites Google bot will find you.

Good luck

This is one of the most mind boggling things that I come across in my day....companies sending spam e-mails or cold calling to offer search engine submission services.

If the government were ever to regulate the SEM/SEO industry they should start by punishing companies that engage in this practice of offering a completely useless service and passing it off as something that has even a sliver of importance in terms of SEO.

Thanks for confirming my thoughts. I agree I don't see a need to pay someone else to do what I can do for myself quickly and easily. Depending on the mood I'm in I tend to handles these calls in 2 ways. If I am busy/bad mood I will tend to be abrupt and brush them off as quickly as possible. If I have a bit of time/in good mood, I will tend to listen to what they have to say pick holes in it and then brush them off.

Thanks for your help

>> I don't see a need to pay someone else to do what I can do for myself quickly and easily. <<

Here's the kicker. You do not need to submit to search engines at all, ever. They will find you, and are very efficient at doing so. Google will usually find you within a week of the first inbound link being placed on some other site that Google has already indexed.

Do make sure you submit to directories, though. Do check their submission policies first. Do not submit if your site is of the type that they say that they do not list.
