Anyone care to share some ideas on how to go about promoting a template based php search engine portal that uses results borrowed from other sources and/or a directory once the meta is right and it has been hand submitted to just about every free submit (not free for all) search engine and directory out there with some attempt to avoid the bad neighborhoods? Sites were accepted and do come up in google, msn and yahoo, etc. for their titles.
I picked these sites up on ebay cheap, did a little cleanup and am now wondering how to get them some traffic beyond linking to them from my other sites. No luck with side ads on other search engines so far.
