Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
However, I was wondering if it is worth forking out the £199 as the site is small (only three pages) and mainly consists of links to other sites.
We make next to no money from the site, so can't afford to lose money on a paid submission if it's unlikely to get us listed.

I'm sorry to be so harsh about your site, but I would strongly reccommend spending some more time developing it and adding some real unique content, and make the submission then.
However, there are several user agents which aren't Internet Explorer which you still need to support: Googlebot and Yahoo Slurp, to name just two. If your markup is so broken that the links don't work in a reasonably standard browser, how can you be sure that the search engine bots can read the page correctly?
Again, it's your choice if you don't mind whether your site can be spidered or not, but if you aren't well-ranked, don't blame the search engine.
Maybe there are too many sites/pages on the web.
Who knows - who cares anymore! There are other methods besides Google and Yahoo. use them instead!
