Until recently, I have followed a similar submission procedure for the engines. Heres a brief general overview.

1) Submit root page.
2) Spider site map (or hallway page) for the engines that support them.
3) Highly optimized keyword specific pages
4) Site pages with minimal tweaking

General premise: Most optimized pages first.

With themes, it would seem that it could well make sense to reverse the order. Any thoughts?

Hey Pete, sorry to over look this post in the rush of activity to move the board.

I think the home page is so important, that it should be submitted first. I don't have any real data or experience with submitting anything else first.

Does anyone know the turn-around time after submission these days?

It's been pretty quick lately somewhere between 1 to 2 weeks.

12 days working here.

And I'd forgotten, we had tried to submit subpages first before. When we did the theme thing on 80 domains back in Feb(?) we did that and it worked well. The problem was that we had promotion efforts out there that pointed at the home page so the spiders found the home page before we were really ready for them.

Have tried the other way around theory with one of the sites. Too early to call yet but shall wait and see.
