The rest: altavista, alltheweb, hotbot, etc, either unavailable, either submission is now paid.
Do you know of any other free-submit SE?
If you want fast results then get a link added onto a site that bots visit often.
When I create a new web site I link it on my own homepage which gets indexed daily. Within 48hours the new site is on google. Within a couple of weeks it has spread all over the place.
I have SE submission software but haven't seen any need to use it for the last year.
Google and DMOZ are, at this time, the only two worth getting added to but by placing your link on a well visited site you will speed up the whole process anyway.
Yeah, but the problem is to find such site. I am pretty new on this and I don't have any high ranked site yet.
I have seen people posting their URL's as HTML in forums and guestbooks, to get a higher page rank, I suppose. Is this a common practise? Is it recommended at all?
Make sure you have googles toolbar on your computer.
If your site is a non-proit site about widgets search for "widgets" and check their cache and page rank. If both are good email them asking for a link swap.
Maybe 1 in 50 will link with you but you only need one to really start to take off.
And what about this link's exchange programs that you can see around, for example cyberspacehq? I see that many sites keep a huge linking page in order to swap links afterwards. Maybe it would be a good idea to create something similar.

I've used the link trader on addweb for almost a year. A few of my sites had over 500 link exchanges and all I got out of that were maybe a dozen sites that SE's knew were linking to me.
I deleted the accounts and started again. This time I'm only going for links I know will work and all the links I do accept will be very relevant instead of broadly relevant.
Nothing works as well as just 1 site which gets updated daily and is loved by SE's
By the way, why is it so important to have Google's?
Many have found that surfing while having the Google Toolbar installed has an affect on the resource getting into the index.
For example, if you've launched a new site and haven't done any promotion. You start surfing that site while having the Google Toolbar installed. Some feel that there is information being sent back to the Google datacenters and that sites are getting indexed this way.
There are a few topics on this floating about. The original people involved with those topics were wondering how Google picked up pages that were not linked to or hadn't been promoted. The only thing they could deduce was that they had the G Toolbar installed while they were viewing that page.
