Hello,

I have submitted the site in question to ODP, to google,
to altavista, all for free. I also seem to be on the
inktomi and fast indices, though I never submitted there.

I have submitted the site to yahoo (express submit), this almost tripled the requests per day.

Where else should I submit to?- Lycos seems weak, compared
to yahoo, looksmart is romoured to be yet again
restructuring. Go is 'clinically dead', GoTo seems to have recurring costs, which I don't want at the moment.

Ideas?

Hi Skirril,
A few other engines you may want to submit to are: northern light, excite, and direct hit (free add URL form).
Also, I suggest looking into NBCi (you have to become an editor first) and About.
That's all I can think of for now.

It's also worth a bit of time doing searches for specialized SEs and directories. I start by searching under "mykeyword directory" or "mykeyword search engine".

If you come up with a well-targeted resource, it may mean some quality traffic.

Also skirril, what appears to be weak may just generate one hit by a serious searcher that turns into a sale.

Don't neglect to submit to FAST also - definitely one to watch: [alltheweb.com...] I do FAST and Lycos both, without fail - had a good, quick result turn up quickly in January too. Check through this forum:

I am already in fast I think.

So, in your opinion Lycos is still worth it?

IF you are in Fast, you are also here:

Don't forget Inktomi. I had 7000+ referrals from MSN in December, my slowest month.

Wow this was find of the week to me. With my lack of fantasy always searched for "keyword1" "keyword2" so overlooked few relevant NEW places to promote/exchange links with. Thanks tedster for tip!
