Up until now, I have been submitting my theme site pages to Alta and the other theme engines. Engine in a previous thread suggested that one should wait for Scooter to deep crawl the site to achieve optimum boostage!

Whats the take. Sumbmit root page and wait for scooter and his friends or submit all the theme pages.

I can understand the reluctance by some to accept theme engines. Its a complete paradigm shift and I am still rapping my mind around it. I have spent all my time building tools to help me in optimizing single pages and many of these pages still hold good rankings. So, many wil be slow to make the move. Although I have yet to see the effect of themes, I have no doubt that the info. is on the money and I am going to run like hell to try to keep ahead. So, when the first theme site takes, you guys will be the first to know.

Cheers, off to write more copy. Have to double the number of theme pages for my sites.

Well, submission depends on whether have other sites related. If it is a solo site with little linkage, I'd go for the submission full tilt.

If it does have some links to it out there, go for your top main pages you think will draw the traffic and wait for the rest to follow. I'd watch the logs close and if Scooter doesn't dig down in your site within 60's, start a slow trickle of urls (1-2 a day) and see if that gets scooter going.
