Welcome to WebmasterWorld, plusminus. I assume it's automated submitting software you used. That may be OK for checking ranking occasionally (careful with Google, they don't care for it) but there are only a few necessary to submit to, and those are easily done by hand. In fact, with some, Like Alta Vista, you need to. Here's a summary of the major ones:


Generally, you'll be found through links, and sometimes PFI is a good idea, but it does usually take a little while.
