Is there any point in submitting any more?

Spidering engines. Should you submit or not?

Remembering that Inktomi admitted applying an automatic penalty to anyone submitting via the free-submit form (90% of the submitted pages were spam), should you submit to spider-based engines - or should you just go for links?

I haven't submitted a page to searchengines in years. Submitting to the most important web directories should do the job just fine...

I never submit...just get incoming links and I'm in business.

I also just go for links. I've had good experiences with this practice, so I've had no reason to want to submit manually.

Agree. To sum up all of the above:

Don't submit to the engines. Submit to (important) directories.

... If you submit for any reason to search engines, provide an alternate email address. Unless your inbox is empty and you're looking for some spam.
