Hi experienced.

Then you have DMOZ:-

[dmoz.org...]
[dmoz.org...]

Most modern SE's (and the ones that will provide you with traffic) maintain their own index by crawling. Inbound links from other sites will therefore usually do the trick.

don't waste your time submitting to search engines. The important ones will find you in a few days max.

I use <snip> for my directory list.

"don't waste your time submitting to search engines. The important ones will find you in a few days max."

Somewhat true, but if it's a new site and not linked anywhere, an SE will never find it. Also, directories don't have bots looking for sites. You have to submit to them for a review and inclusion.

Getting listed in major directories (DMOZ, Yahoo) first will increase your chances of getting spidered, but this can take a while and cost $$$.

Try getting some related websites to link back to you, too.

thinkaholic,

That was the point of my post as well.

Don't submit to se's, but just directories.
