Because it is there - and because they know no better.
And because someone, somewhere is handing out bogus advice? Newbies don't just dream this stuff up.
Ah yes. memories from when I was a newbie. There used to be a program called Dumptruck that you loaded up with URLs and it automatically submitted them to a variety of search engines for you. It was a must-have in those pre-Google days.
But now - doesn't it seem like it's almost deceptive to the newbie for any modern search engine to maintain a "Submit" form?
