Would someone please explain to me the recommendation some make for turning off cookies when submitting to search engines by hand.

I'm wondering if it's to stop search engines identifying people who oversubmit pages for one individual site. Fair enough they get caught out for spamming.

However if you're submitting within guidelines but for <b>multiple</b> sites is it still an issue? What do others do?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld biggles, if no one else has offered that so far.

As long as you are not submitting duplicate sites I dont see the problem. Its possible I have missed the talk around here about it but I havent seen any. This to me sounds like an old wise tell.
