There are so many paid inclusion engines out there that all consider themselves high any mighty over the next guy. What I'd like to know, when you have a newer site coming out and want to make some sort of presence with it or traffic boost to it, which are the top 5 paid inclusion services or engines to go for and why?

1) Adwords
2) Overture
3) depending, try Inktomi (paid spidering) or XML feed (PPC for large number of pages / company)
4) Findwhat

Other than the inclusion program with Inktomi, if you are selling to the USA market, you don't need anything else.

Yahoo PFI in their directory might or might not fit in the list at $5, depending on your perspective of the future. :)

There is still a bit of traffic in some categories...but not as great of a value as before, imho.

About the 'value' bit, use a tracking service / script / or something to monitor all your campaigns, tweak them over time.

As far as I've read here & by using the site search [webmasterworld.com] those seem to be the universal best bets for ROI.
